    The 5 Best and Worst Movies of 2015
    Worst of 2015
    1. Fifty Shades of Grey
    Source: Universal Pictures
    This train wreck of a movie was one of the most anticipated films of the year, as the erotic novels have famously sold bazillions of copies and ignited tons of controversy about whether or not the central relationship portrayed in them is a horribly misogynistic vision of a woman being abused and brainwashed by a powerful man or a sex-positive look at BDSM. Tons of women in particular read the books and much was made about whether the BDSM practices described within were becoming mainstream. Anyway, everyone knew about Fifty Shades by the time this movie was released, and many were expecting something that at the very least was going to be sexy. Wrong.

    ((((50 shades was a joke LOL it was horrible ))) ..

      Suooo says the movie was so bad and disgusting that she almost left the theater.
      Seriously, happy for the actor but do wish this Fifty Shades crappolla would go away.
      I hate that the good books and good writers are being ignored while the writer of this book, a woman who doesn’t even understand sentence variation, makes millions upon millions.
      I also understand folks like erotic fiction. But you do not have to prostitute your good taste in order to be turned on by prose. You can read DH Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover or Henry Miller’s The Tropic of Cancer or anything by Anais Nin.

RATINGS: DAYS Overtakes GH And Takes The Number Three Spot!

Following their triple-crown victory of winning Outstanding Daytime Drama Series, Writing Team in a Drama Series, and Directing Team honors at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, Days of our Lives continued their upswing when the recent ratings were released this week.

For the week ending April 30th through May 4th, DAYS moved past General Hospital as the third most-watched soap opera. Considering DAYS has been in the fourth position of all four soaps for the last several years, this is definitely worth noting.. DAYS came in with 2,301,000 average total viewers for the ratings week, while GH had 2, 288,000. In addition, GH tied an all-time low in the womens 18-34 ratings share.

As for The Young and the Restless, they also lost the most viewers for the week with -174,00, while coming in at 4,089,000 total viewers. Even though they remain at number one and are far ahead of the other three soaps, it seems the show, which in the past has hovered around 4.5 million a week, is down. In addition, the ratings reflected that B&B is now tied with Y&R for the number one show in the womens demo 18-34, and Y&R has tied some lows in total households, and the women 18-49 ratings share.

The Bold and the Beautiful remains second of the soaps with 3,227,00 viewers, but is down over 100,000 total viewers from last year at this time. View the entire ratings picture via SON here. (more…)
