What do moms really want for Mother’s Day this year? If they are being honest, a lot will answer that they would just love some quite and alone time, some time to kick-back, read a book or watch a few (not animated) movies. Not that we don’t love our families or enjoy a movie about a bunny that beats all odds to become a cop, because we do, we wholeheartedly do, but let’s face it, life is beyond busy for most parents these days and it can be overwhelming if we don’t slow things down and take time for our-self every once in a while.
The Fifty Shades 3-Movie Collection Unrated Edition is not for everyone – it’s spicy and very much for adults, it is also a lot of fun and it has zero animated characters.
Releasing just in time for Mother’s Day, celebrate the journey to motherhood with Anastasia Steele when the Fifty Shades 3-Movie Collection Unrated Edition arrives on Blu-ray™ May 8, 2018 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Complete with hours of bonus content from each film to relive every steamy moment.
The global film sensation sparked by EL James’ best-selling book trilogy returns with the seminal final chapter of the darkly alluring tale that captivated the world. Stay in, complete your collection and experience the climax of this worldwide phenomenon with the ultimate at-home movie night when Fifty Shades Freed arrives on Digital and the all-new digital movie app MOVIES ANYWHERE on April 24, 2018 and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand on May 8, 2018 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
Believing they have left behind shadowy figures from their past, newlyweds Christian (Jamie Dornan, “The Fall,” Anthropoid) and Ana (Dakota Johnson, How to Be Single, Black Mass) fully embrace an inextricable connection and shared life of luxury. But just as she steps into her role as Mrs. Grey and he relaxes into an unfamiliar stability, new threats could jeopardize their happy ending before it even begins. Directed by James Foley (“House of Cards,” At Close Range), Fifty Shades Freed also features returning cast members Eric Johnson (“The Knick,” “Smallville”), Rita Ora (Fifty Shades Franchise) as well as Oscar® winner Marcia Gay Harden (Fifty Shades of Grey, Miller’s Crossing).
In addition to both the original theatrical version and a steamy new unrated version, Fifty Shades Freed comes with more than 30 minutes of never-before-seen bonus content, including a deleted scene, cast interviews and behind-the-scenes features. You get more passion, more drama and more suspense when you own the final chapter on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital.
I read the Fifty Shades of Grey book series when they were new. Until recently, I hadn’t actually seen all of the movies. I’m not easily offended, but when it comes to movies, spicy is not often my choice of genre. AND LET ME Tell You – these unrated editions are some of the spiciest movies ever watched in our living-room.
Overall, all three movies are a good adaption and from what I remember follow the books closely. While they might not be major award winning material, I enjoyed watching all three movies a lot more than I expected. I wasn’t so sure I would be able to let go of the characters in my head and enjoy the cast, but I was pleasantly surprised. Because the cast has such great on-screen chemistry, I fell hard into their world and relived their story as if I hadn’t ever read the books. I was totally sucked in, I even felt the suspense going from the second movie to the third and I could hardly wait. It was a great way to spend an afternoon, indulging in movies while alone in the house. We should all take more time to do this.
If there’s a lady in your life that enjoys spicy romance with a little suspense this set would make a great gift. You can purchase it on my Amazon affiliate page now.
