Look, I know how terrible this franchise is. I can’t stay away. I’m too curious and I need to know what’s happening. It’s a morbid fascination. Like staring at a car crash. The world’s sexiest car crash.
Does the plot even matter? Is there a plot at all? I don’t know. There’s so many holes and disconnects and questions and problems. What sustains this movie for me is the chemistry between our two leads. When I’m watching them, and not thinking about anything else, I’m into it. But as soon as I turn my brain back on, I notice everything that’s wrong (starting first with how incredibly unhealthy their relationship is).
Oh and then Jamie Dornan looks just enough like an ex (but hotter) to really mess with my head, so that doesn’t help matters at all. Some of the same mannerisms too. Okay, not going there.
Hey at this point, you know what you’re getting. I think we’re all ready for it to be over. Still, just because something’s terrible doesn’t mean it isn’t fun. It’s all about perspective and mindset, and not overthinking. Not thinking at all really
