    “Dakota Johnson is a nice, respectable, wholesome girl… and I’m gonna see her boobs.”

    • Bob

      1st comment,,,,unfortunately the typical adolescent unintelligent sort.

      • Jan

        It’s a movie based on mommy-porn. What’d you expect, Shakespeare?

      • Guy

        What are you talking about? This is a refined movie for adults. The world needs more creeps running around getting their jollies by tying woman up and then doing stuff to them. It’s evolution man.

      • MJ

        LOL Exactly my point. Blue is the Warmest Color was the same deal — a chance to go see two girls in near hardcore sex scenes while claiming you are seeing an art film. LOL

      • Redjester

        BITWC was actually a really good film, even if it had left out the female sex scenes and nudity. Not that you were paying attention. You probably fast-forwarded through half the film.

      • MJ

        LOL. Yea, sure it was. It was the 69th best film of the year.

      • Bob

        No but I would hope for something better than some juvenile quip that is meant to be funny but instead is just childishly sad. But if it is how you get your jollys all power to you.

      • MJ

        I have to agree with Jan. So sick of these art films that are really just masquerading as “acceptable porn” for the critics to pretend there are all of these themes about human nature, etc.

    From everything I’ve heard of this story, I still don’t see how it’s not just going to play like a 90′s Skinemax flick… and here it’s getting major studio treatment, to play in actual public theaters?? WTF?

    • Person

      Major studio gives it a (relatively) major budget because they know it’ll make major money. No one’s making this movie for Oscar glory.

  • Redjester

    There are only really two reasons I might give in and see this:

    1. Sam Taylor-Johnson is one of my favorite up and coming directors. NOWHERE BOY was a hell of a first film for any director.

    2. Jamie Dornan was fantastic in THE FALL, and I’m curious to see just how high his ceiling is.

    • MJ

      Never heard of these, so I guess the ceiling is pretty high…

      • Redjester

        Ever consider that you never hearing of those two projects might speak more to your knowledge or lack thereof than of the quality of the work itself? I remember my roommate in college had never heard of The Beatles. That said, I think I can safely say that had more to do with him not knowing jack about music than a statement regarding the quality of The Beatles.

      • MJ

        That’s a strawman argument, because general knowledge of The Beatles is ubiquitous.

        A better example comes to mind from my college days. I had a friend who insisted we go to this concert by this punk band called “Echo and the Bunnymen.” I commented, “I know a lot of music, and I’ve never heard of them, so I bet they stink.” And guess what, they were horrid.

      • Redjester

        Clearly indie and festival-circuit films aren’t where your film expertise lies.

        In the future, you might try watching a film or miniseries before pronouncing that it, the director, and the cast did a poor job. You’ll come across much less ignorant that way.

        My issue isn’t that you disagree with my opinion, it’s that you disagree yet admit to having never seen (indeed never heard of) the film and miniseries I speak of. A little strange to say the least…

      • MJ

        Really good “art movies” eventually get seen by a lot of people in later release on DVD, etc…they eventually make it into the public consciousness…i.e. many of us eventually hear of them and watch them.

        Other “art movies, such as this Nowhere Boy you mentioned, which could barely crack a 7 rating on IMDB, never reach that general level of distribution.

        Can I definitely say that this movie is good or bad? Of course not.

        However, based on past experience in watching little known “art films,” can I generally state that 8 times out of 10 they aren’t very good, and are in many times pompous-elitist vehicles designed to massage the vanity of the writers and directors…YES, I can say that from personal experience in suffering through most of them.

      • Bob

        Really good art films often never find an audience and you claiming otherwise shows your limited knowledge of the topic being discussed. Nowhere Boy was a very good film that flew under the radar. The Fall was one of the best series I’ve seen in a long time. Both are worth a view.

      • MJ

        Well of course a very small percentage of people — the elitist artsy fartsy types — will always worship these sort of bottom feeder self-important type of movies that 99.9% of us don’t care to see.

        But, like I said, I would say about 2 out of 10 of these types of movies that I have ended up seeing over the years have been pretty good. It’s just a benefit-cost thing with me — do I want to devote my valuable time to a subclass of little know films when I know that randomly, only 20% of them are going to be worth my time investment? Nope.

      • Bob

        Nowhere Boy was not an artsy fartsy film by anyone’s standards and your contempt for people who have a passion for the cinema speaks volumes for the validity of your opinions. I for one love movies whether they are small gems like Nowhere Boy or popular popcorn fare like The Avengers or guilty pleasures like Step Up. I love movies. If you need to insult people like me to make yourself feel superior than all power to you. By the way, I speak for myself and don’t assume as you do to be speaking for 99.9% of other movie goers.

      • MJ

        LOL. You’ve got it backwards, my friend. It’s many, many of those movies that are elitist…that come across as supposedly “educating” us…the makers of those films, they are ones that have contempt, and are elitist towards the rest of society.

        Again, on average, I find that about 20% of those types of movies are good. So my struggle is finding these good art films without having to wade through the 80% of art films that are pompous crap/ director-vanity projects that are trying to sell us on some bloated sociological vision or “life lesson” he/she has for us — i.e. like based on the director’s dad beating him/her when he/she was growing up, and his/her film elitist buddies in Greenwich Village or Paris telling him/her what a genius he/she is…such people need a therapist much more than a director’s chair.

    • MITIOR

      fantastic? I’ll assume this to be a hyperbole…moving on

      • JD7

        Ha why diminish this guy’s opinion? I mean to be fair, I’ve seen the Fall and it was pretty good overall and Dornan was one of the best things about it. Granted that’s the only thing I’ve seen him in so it’s hard to judge his acting ability from that.

      • MITIOR

        you’e right. everyone has a different perspective.

      • Redjester

        Have you seen THE FALL? Considering it was one of Dornan’s first acting roles, in fact he did do a fantastic job. Hence why I’m curious how high his acting ceiling is.

        And how is it that we’re on a site for movie buffs and no one here has seen NOWHERE BOY? I’m betting if you had you wouldn’t be so quick to dismiss the talent of the director in question or the possibility of her turning this by all accounts POS book into (at the very least) a well directed film. NOWHERE BOY isn’t CITIZEN KANE to be sure, but it is one of the most impressive first films from a director that I’ve seen in a long while.

    • JD7

      Jamie Dornan in The Fall was pretty good! I haven’t seen Nowhere Boy but I’ve heard of it. As for this being worth seeing? eh…I wouldn’t hold my breath, I was shocked that people liked the book. I read popular books sometimes just to see why they might be popular, and I couldn’t get 50 pages into this thing without slamming the book down nearly every page. The story reads like a porn script (cliches and all. In fact there is almost nothing that differentiated it from any other erotic novel that I noticed.)

  • Napoleon

    I hate Beyonce

  • Steven

    If Beyonce was the female lead in this film, then I would be interested.
