50 shades is squicky and weird and I have a lot of problems with it but a) the sex will be diluted from what’s in the book because it’s a major studio film b) 50 shades was literally twilight fanfiction, did u boycott all those movies too? they were also problematic and abusive C) not paying for a movie doesn’t like, work that way, it doesn’t punish the person who wrote the book and optioned the rights. It doesn’t mean it “opens doors” for more abusive BDSM in films. “secretary” is a cult classic and that didn’t pave the way for bdsm, right? Like, I get that there are so many things to detest about 50 shades and I swear I’m right there with you, but what actually happens when women-directed films are huge successes at the box office is that we get more women directing films.

idea for those of you who want to hate-watch 50 shades of grey:

pay for tickets to a different movie, then go to 50 shades

every ticket you buy for a different movie gives a few bucks to people who deserve it. every time you watch 50 shades without paying for a…

Uhhhh

I understand that 50 shades is stupid and terrible

But the screenplay was written by a woman and is being directed by a woman- who was chosen over Joe Wright and Gus Van Sant.

2% of directors in Hollywood in 2013 were women. Like, this is fucking serious. I hate 50 shades as much as y’all do because of how problematic it is, but the film industry actively discriminates against anyone who isn’t a white dude so please don’t call for stealing from the picture because a) literally hundreds of people worked on that movie and b) as much as I loathe to admit it, 50 shades has a woman at the helm in Hollywood and that is something I support.

The headline should read: ‘A tour of Glasgow’s most pretentious bars and clubs’. Not a single mention of the multitude of cheap Wetherspoons pubs. Shameful.

… Now, I know making fun of Gaurdian commenters is too easy but this really is pretty spectacular and I hope to see more comments like this on online travel writing from here on in. (“more like a tour of New York’s most pretentious restaurants and coffee shops. Not a single mention of the multitude of Starbucks and Subways! shameful” etc.)

[To be clear, the joke here is not that there’s anything wrong with Weatherspoons or Subways, it’s just that people don’t really need to be TOLD about them]

"It’s just internet hype, it’s never gonna translate into IRL success, people aren’t actually eating it at parties, yeah? Frankly I think healthy food is an industry plant. It’s not had an organic growth in buzz, you know, it just suddenly popped up? I don’t buy it"

So that’s the soundtrack for my next three hours of jobhunting sorted. Shout out to the palpable sense of relief when a beat comes in after four minutes of noise.
