Fifty Shades of Black (2016)
what a joke
The performances transcend the film's tropes, grounding it in characters that feel more complete than this subgenre often produces.
A terrific literary drama and character piece that shows how the process of creating art can be seen differently by those doing it and those looking at it from the outside.
The film's masterful storytelling did its job. The message was clear. No need to overdo.
This film tells the story of a young woman who interviews a rich businessman.When you watch a parody, you know it is exactly what it is that you are watching. It is ridiculous, scandalous and gross, but it works. The film is so funny that I just cannot stop laughing. The sets are really stylish as well, so it is not the typical cheap parody.
An apparently filthy rich guy meets a poor but attractive young girl, eager for a new and more interesting life. This new person that enters her life is about to show her a part of fetishism and fantasy that she never thought about before.It's an ordinary comedy inspired directly from "50 Shades of Grey" and seems to take the parody part to the extreme. It simply makes fun of everything portrayed in the original movie, without any shame (which could be a good thing), but unfortunately without any sense of fun. It tries desperately to make you laugh but as it happens with every single movie that does this, it fails miserably. You struggle to find a couple of funny scenes, laughter being something rare in this one although it's supposed to be a full-time comedy. The plot is not something to take into account as well as all the characters from this so called movie.It's not a disappointment because didn't have high expectations regarding it but it is without any doubt a very bad movie from every point of view, something from which you should run, far, far away.
The first "meeting" of the main female character and Mr. Black is maybe the high point of the whole affair (excuse the pun). It kind of depicts how ridiculous the other movie is. But then again, we already knew that didn't we? There are a couple of scenes that hold their own just because they have such a simple and easy task, when you go back to the source material.There is one scene though that tries to make fun of Whiplash, in a sexual context. While the overall idea isn't that bad, the execution is very weak. I guess we have to an understanding at this point, that Mr. Wayans will do anything silly, and he has an audience for that, that he keeps happy I reckon. So this niche gets served too. There is some nudity if you wonder, but all in all it's just juvenile
It is not today that Marlon Wayans invests in parodies - in fact, he only succeeded in parodies. From All The World in Panic to Paranormal Inactivity, several were the genres and blockbusters that went through their not always funny and often appealing jokes. With fifty shades of black, an obvious parody of fifty shades of gray, the situation does not change much. Only this time, Wayans satirizes a bad movie by nature. Want a better way than scolding him than pointing out all his many faults?Fifty Tones in Black - Foto It is with this proposal that Fifty Tones in Black can even amuse at certain moments. The story is exactly the same, and filmed following the same scenes and scenes from the Sam Taylor-Johnson-directed show - all to highlight how crude the "love story" is between Hannah Steele (Kali Hawk) and Christian Black Wayans, who else?). Of course, as the protagonists are now black, the script explores various jokes around racial prejudice, either by reversing situations in relation to whites or by quoting icons such as Wesley Snipes and Bill Cosby. And, as it could not be but in a film of the Wayans, sometimes it takes heavy in the Bactria.It is at this point that the film complicates, and quite a lot. No matter how conceptually interesting and really good jokes, especially when the main characters enter the famous red room, sequences like the quote to Magic Mike and the exaggerations arising from Black's sexual problems are unnecessary. But on the other hand, that's what Wayans fans expect. On the plus side, this time, they come in smaller dosages and scattered throughout the feature film. That is, they are more "palatable" - if one can use this term when seeing nonsense as the scene of the outgoing navel.Merging embarrassing moments with others where it is possible to laugh with gusto - attention to the clever drafts of the sodomy's session -, Fifty Tons of Black is a very irregular film that works best when viewed as a huge hoax on top of Fifty Shades of Gray. Curiously, or inevitably, it turns out to be better than the satirized - and far superior to the horrific Paranormal Inactivity 1 and 2, also starring Wayans.
