So, 50 Shades didn’t flop

Contrary to my wishful thinking*, 50 Shades of Grey killed it at the box office. Damn.

*Incidentally, that little throwaway SpongeBob post has gotten, by far, more views than any other post during this little blog’s run. Go figure.

SpongeBob parodies 50 Shades of Grey

A poster for the new SpongeBob movie spoofs 50 Shades of Grey. I would enjoy it so much if the yellow sponge ended up with a biigger box office haul than 50 Shades. I thought the latter was sure to be a juggernaut, but with all the criticism aimed at the books for their harmful depictions of BDSM, the train wreck press tour, the arguments between the director and author, I’m coming around to the idea that this thing might actually flop. Good. BDSM enthusiasts and lovers of romance movies deserve much better.
