CBS News ^

Posted on 01/09/2013 2:53:21 PM PST by Perdogg

The film adaptation of the best-selling book series "Fifty Shades of Grey" still does not have a screenplay. But according to one source, there is only one possible rating the movie will receive.

"It will be rated NC-17. It will be raunchy," screenwriter Kelly Marcel told U.K. newspaper The Sunday Times.

"We are 100 percent going there."

They won’t go there. There’s major chains that won’t even carry it, not to mention stores that won’t sell the DVD. Major revenue loss if they get an NC-17. Maybe the first pass will, but they’ll edit it, it will release with an R.

In a world with internet porn?

OK.

And this rates as major news on one of the biggest TV channels?

They’re probably already planning on a TV show to follow the movie, in prime time.

Here we go. The PR people for this trash are starting to leak how “edgy” and “close to the line” it is as a way to gin up ticket sales. But the bottom line is that this is not “cutting edge” or “pushing the envelope” or whatever other words Hollywood uses to try to make itself look lie the leading edge of the 60s Revolution — this is simply porn for people who can’t bring themselves to buy an XXX video at the adult book store. Its pathetic.

No need. Go to the remote and click the appropriate PPV channel.

Maybe they can premiere it at the White House as the new normal for Obama’s America.

Didn’t you make a promise about leaving FR after you lied through your teeth and got caught?

I believe it had to do with porn if I remember correctly...and I do.

Hey DJ, WTC is at it again. Think those link to his Stephen Baldwin posts are still good?

Oh and WTC, I dunno if you are aware, but pretty much everyone in America knows that you can get porn on the net and on PPV, so before you go making accusations like that in public, you might want to think before you post.

But that never stopped you before I guess.

How low?
Well, we’re this low: Fifty Shades of Crap started out as Twilight Fan Fiction under the title of “Master of the Universe”.
Yes, a book on dysfunctional relationships started out as fan fiction on yet ANOTHER dysfucntional relationship.

Hey Skippy, as if they don’t know.

So why exactly are you here again? Proving what your word are worth I guess. Cuz,,,you know...If you can’t keep your word about leaving, I can’t see why you’d be trusted to be an authority on a stranger’s viewing habits.

Perhaps you still haven’t gotten over your public humiliation a year back and just hold a grudge? Our post histories carry the whole thing and I invite anyone to dig them up just to see the kind of person you are.

Because remember, YOU started this go-around. Not me.

That would be the remakes of “Beauty and the Beast”, “Pocohantas”, and “Pinnochio.”

The story I read was it grew megapopular online and an agent/publisher decided to novelize it.

Can’t vouch for the accuracy, but sounds likely.

Long story short, Stephanie Meyer told the writer of the fan fic “Uh... That’s not appropriate for my characters or my forum.”
[A laugh considering.}
So butthurt fanfic writer takes the manuscript, changes the names, adds a few extra paragraphs maybe, and submits it to a publisher.

Publisher bought it.

And here we are today.

These books are to normalize anal sex—exactly like “Deep Throat” promoted sodomy in the oral form-— so the “sodomy” laws could be removed as they eventually planned with the Marxist on the Supreme Court—Ginsberg—in the Lawrence case which insanely argued that there is no morality in “law” when all US law is built on the ideas of Virtue—Justice.

“Homosexuality” could be made “normal” since “heterosexuals” engaged in it according to Hefner and the pederast Kinsey-—so, in the eyes of the law and children, Christianity could be made into bigotry and would become the center for “hate speech” (Marxist speech codes for reeducation camps are next and going on in universities as I type and the military).

This book glorifies and breaks down morality of young girls—to make them think that the degrading act of anal sex is glorious, exhilarating, and such an expression of “Trust” and “REAL LOVE”. They couch it with the handsome perfect male who loves sodomy-—(although with women, wink wink)—because he was treated so inhumanely when a child.

The idea that desires for perverted sex always come from childhood abuse—goes right over everyone’s head—because that is not the intent of this book.
(BTW, homosexual behavior is a learned behavior, always created by childhood abuse—mostly sexual, but it can be emotional—a belittling of the sexuality of a young child—so they hate themselves.)

This is all to make the irrational, vile behavior of homosexuality “normal” —to destroy Christian Ethics-—so the Cultural Marxists can collapse the institution of Mother and Father and marriage-—the family unit—and the self-sacrifice that is always needed to produce a healthy, emotionally strong, independent future generation. Can’t have that when trying to destroy all freedoms.

Freedom is not possible in a government (culture) that does not promote Public Virtue. This was known since Socrates. This book is destroying the “idea” of Christian morality—the only Ethical system which has given religious freedom to all and perfect for US since it has been based on Natural Law Theory (thanks to St. Thomas Aquinas and the Catholic Church and Aristotle and Cicero.)

Scalia is right-—next pederasty and bestiality. Notice Rush was all over the experts quoting how sodomy of little boys is good for them and never does any harm.

Ideas matter-—they shape opinion. They are corrupting our children, so they are desensitized to pagan/occult/Marxist abuse of their own bodies so they become slaves of their passions. No intellect—no Reason—all reduced to animalistic behaviors, although I have never heard of any animals sodomizing other animals, unless trained by a perverted human......put in artificial environments. Degraded, evil behaviors—result in collapsed cultures—children who are lazy and resort to hedonistic “pleasures” which destroy all relationships so society collapses.

Homosexual “Rights” can’t exist in an America where rights originate from God, not Satan, so Vice is always evil and unnatural and “Just Laws” have got to promote Virtue.

Judges with the twisted, warped, evil view of “Justice” like Ginsberg should be impeached-—if the Supreme Law of the Land is our Constitution where our Rights come from God and are unalienable. There is never a “right” to sodomize another human being, ever. The thought is absurd and irrational and unconstitutional. Just Laws can NEVER promote Vice.

I am assuming you have to be able to write. When Geofrey Jenkins wrote the James Bond novel "Per Fine Ounce" it was rejected due to lack of quality.

Because they were in the news, I bought the first book. I found it unreadable and only made it part way through. The porn was really rather mild. The characters were so predictable, boring and uninteresting that I just didn’t care what they did. Lousy books will make lousy movies.

I was at a B&N and went over to the stand and opened a copy to a random chapter and read a paragraph. It was very pedestrian.

Just yesterday I came across excerpts from these books. (The 15 “dirtiest” or something)

It’s quite poorly written, like you could find better “erotica” all over the internet. The article also said it started out as “Twilight” fan faction. The author must still be a 14 year old girl inside. It makes me sick she’s getting rich of off this.

One choice line “I’m 50 shades of f***ed up, Anastasia”

Yes Pulitzer worthy stuff. I can’t believe this is what has housewives across America “excited”.

If degenerate smutty crap like this makes money, I’m in the wrong business.

I can out-”smutty crap” this bitch any day, in my sleep.

“Yes Pulitzer worthy stuff. I can’t believe this is what has housewives across America “excited”.”

The fat, smelly, tattooed up swine need some outlet...no self respecting guy will touch ‘em. And if they do, they are out to denigrate them.

God, I love living during the rapid decline of a civilization!!!

“THAT’S what you’ve got?”

Oh if you think THAT is impressive, dig up his wisdom from back in the PDS wars. Here is your challenge for the day Laz...Find a difference between WTC’s posts and MSM propaganda. Such is the beauty of FR having permanent and reviewable posting histories.

He and I have had a number of go arounds. And it always ends with him acting like he did here, vanishing for a while and coming back later like none of it, or anything he said prior, never happened.

And this time, DJ didn’t even have to post the thread in question before he bailed. But he’ll pop up again. Always does.

Just like he did on this very thread. and it’s all there for anyone who cares to read it.

This is somewhat sophisticated troll-behavior, to disappear until the dustup blows over. I've learned to look for this, however, after missing a few trolls who did this with me.

I am very aware that wtc911 is a leftist troll, and a race troll as well. I am continuously amazed he is permitted access to the forum. You will know the day, Norm, that I become a moderator, if they ever allow that: THAT DAY, wtc911 will be zotted.

Well, you won’t hear me complain should that day come to pass ;)

But he can just keep calling me ‘pornboy’ and whatever else eh likes to accuse me of being/doing. I’m not the one looking like a drunk teenager with a twitter account.

I’d rather not have to deal with these idiots at all, but letting them ‘hit and run’ does no one any favors.
