Top Fifty Shades of Movie Scenes

Updated on September 30, 2019

I've written, contributed to books on film, and worked in the film industry. I like to share insights into the movie-making business.

Three Books and Three Movies

E.L. James wrote Fifty Shades of Grey as a blog while at work. The story is about two people who fall in love and share a precarious relationship. Christian and Anastasia endure an erotic bond that is dominated by Christian. Anastasia is overwhelmed by it all and tries to end the relationship.

In the second book, Fifty Shades Darker, we find out why Christian still enjoys inflicting pain on his relationships. He struggles with his demons, but Ana loves him and confronts the anger and the other women in his past.

In the third book, Fifty Shades Freed, they become married, and Ana gains more independence while Christian struggles with letting her be free.

The three movies arrived in the movie theaters on subsequent Valentine's Day in hopes of catching the romantic spirit of the holiday. Whether you have seen any of the films or not, I am delighted to share some favorite movie clips.

Best Fifty Shades of Grey Movie Trailer

Fifty Shades Darker is the second film in the trilogy. The trailer is by far the best one of all three. The music and edit cuts indicate all the qualities that made the book series so successful.

Anastasia Takes Charge

This clip shows how Anastasia is no longer the naive young woman she was in the first movie, Fifty Shades of Grey. She is even willing to banter with Christian and have a little fun.

Pick Option Two

“I don't know whether to worship at your feet or spank the living shit out of you.”

— E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

The Vanilla Relationship

I watch this scene, and I can't help but be impressed with Jamie Dornan. His acting is so believable as a struggling Christina who doesn't want to lose the only woman he ever truly loved.

Still, I feel this is a silly scene. It could be done differently and more appealing for people who find it hard to believe in such a relationship.

"He Let's You Call Him by His Name"

I remember when I read this scene in the book. I thought the writing tells the story well, and it kept me glued to the book. Christian ruined the girl, and it shows the adverse effects a dominating relationship can do to a person. This storyline also shows how strong and caring Ana is and how she wouldn't put up with such domination from Christian.

“I wasn't aware we were fighting. I thought we were communicating.”

— E.L. James, Fifty Shades Darker

Get Your Hands Off My Husband

I like this scene because it is refreshing to see Ana tell this woman, "Get your hands off my husband." I remember reading this part in the third book and thinking, "Boy, Anastasia sure has grown into a strong woman." I wondered if Christian was still faithful to his wife.

"Oh, I am so Sorry."

This scene sold the third movie, Fifty Shades Darker. It is obvious the actors feel more comfortable around each other and are having fun. This scene is too sweet for my tastes. I don't remember it being in the book, and the screenplay is by Niall Leonard.

"Would You Change Your Name for Me?"

The movie clip is a good scene because it shows the fans how their relationship has grown into a give and take. I scratch your back. You scratch my back. Ana needs to prove herself, and Christian is letting her but at what cost.

Dornan's Naked Back

This movie clip shows us the old Christian. He surprises her but places a mask on her face. It seems romantic but different when Ana initiates a romantic interlude. There is tension in the scene - foreboding. With that, I sure do like all these movie clips showing Jamie Dornan's naked back. His back is in perfect shape. Don't you think?

“God, I’m a lucky son of a bitch.” - Christian Grey

— E.L. James, Fifty Shades Freed

What are Your Favorite Scenes?

Fifty Shades Darker and Freed with Jack Hyde

Did any of you like the scenes with Jack Hyde? The story is all about Ana and Christian, but Jack arrives and plays the villain. He is gorgeous.

The costumer talks about his looks and how she dressed him for the movie. Watch the movie clip, and see if perhaps you thought some of his scenes are at the same level as Ana and Christian's.

The scene when Jack grabs Ana, it's scary but hot.

      The story is interesting and sparked too much controversy for my taste, but the movie was a box office success. The main character Christian Grey being a mystery made it a page-turner. Ana being naive at first and then becoming stronger for Grey is a great way to tell a story. I am sure the Blu-rays and DVDs sell even better than the box office. It launched Dakota Johnson's career. I am interested in seeing how her career develops.

      Book was wonderful to read, movie was amazing and acted very well by Christain and Ana, movie characters.

      I liked many scenes, especially the inner mind tension of Ana to become a fearless lady.
