Everyone knows the hype about 50 Shades of Grey over the past year or so. It is a trilogy of romance novels centered around the Mr. Christian Grey, all powerful man that is domineering and possess all things as his own. On the other hand, we all know who Will Ferrell is – Mr. Ron Burgundy, the Anchorman. My analysis is a combination of the two – a hilarious romantic novel created into a movie remix. The remix contains audio from the trailer for 50 Shades of Grey, appearing on the big screen Valentines Day 2015 and imaging from Anchorman. I enjoyed doing this analysis because I did read the three 50 Shades books and I enjoyed them as well as watching the movie Anchorman. Personally, I think Will Ferrell is hilarious especially when he is trying to be Christian Grey. The six major points were analyzed in the remix; montage, juxtaposition, intertextuality, closure, and soundtrack. Reading the books really helped to understand the remix but I believed I explained it enough for you to understand if you have not read them – yet!
Enjoy, and I hope you laugh!!
