Frankly, I really have no one else to blame but me for inflicting this movie upon myself.
Mike, a good friend and one of the people behind Black Box Collab, invited us at TEAM to a special screening of Fifty Shades Darker at Newport Cinemas, sponsored by Japanese condom brand Okamoto. Despite how I already had low expectations of the movie after seeing the first one (after all, anything that proudly claims to have been inspired by Twilight should be eyed with much suspicion), I wanted to see how they could take story further after the much-panned Fifty Shades of Grey.
My hunch was right: the second movie offered no redemption from the already clunky premise established during the first movie.
