KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE had a short scene where the agent recruits were required to each pick up a woman using the seduction training they received. The scene was at some night club, and all three agents swooped down on just this one girl, as they explained the concept of negging and so forth. It was the first time on film that I’ve seen/heard PUA concepts being explained. So its now apparent that PUA stuff has become a regular household thing in our modern society.
The movie (no spoilers here) also paralleled the theme of the “gentleman” like in Great Expectations. Quote from the mentor:
“Being a gentleman is not about being better than other people. It is about being better than your former self”
As for 50 SHADES OF GREY, it was basically an instruction video on the female attraction mechanism. The main character, Christian Grey, basically demonstrated some qualities that drive women to intoxicating attraction. The only downside of all of this was that the actor who played Christian Grey looked a lot like Paul Janka, who is a scamming douchebag PUA coach.
