I saw Bohemian Rhapsody this weekend and if you're a Queen fan I highly recommend it. It was such an awesome movie and I learned a whole lot more about them. The best part is that Brian and Roger were listed as executive producers so I have a feeling it pretty much stuck to a lot of the actual history of the band. Very very good movie. I give it a rating of Millennium Force.

I enjoyed a lot about Bohemian Rhapsody, but I wish it would have stuck more to the truth of Queen's story. The main points of conflict in the film were extremely fictionalized. Freddie wasn't the first member of Queen to go solo, and they never actually broke up. He also wasn't diagnosed until years after the Live Aid performance. The record executive played by Mike Myers wasn't a real person. I understand that no biographical film is going to be 100% true, but these events are made out to be HUGE parts of Queen's journey, despite never actually happening.

I did enjoy a lot of the film though. Remi Malek really is incredible as Freddie, especially in later scenes. The press conference scene was effectively suffocating. A small detail that stuck out to me was the silhouette from the Bohemian Rhapsody music video appearing in the glass of the recording studio. The Live Aid performance was also a great finale to the film.

^ We just came home from seeing it, and we were blown away, by mainly the actors playing Freddy and the band.
We also kept wondering if somehow, the one who kept his long hair "shag".... was actually Benedict Cumberbatch!
Not to be, obviously, but we did wonder from time to time.... :wink:

All the Queen songs were great how they were worked into the film. And the non-music scenes were amazing at times.

I do agree, there is "a lot of stuff moved around" as to correct events, etc. But I am sure that happens in a lot
of other bio-pics.And one way or the other, we remember that Freddy did die of AIDS, that "Paul" was the bad
apple in the scenario, and thankfully, the music never dies.

We enjoyed "Bohemian Rhapsody" a lot, and even stuck around through the credits to hear all the music being played. :smile:

I saw Overlord recently. I cannot express how many Nazis are punched in this film. If you enjoy seeing Nazis punched, kicked, shot with machine guns, and blown up with grenades, this is the film for you.

We are Americans. We punch Nazis and we do not EVER bring them back. That's who we are and that's what we do.

I saw the Grinch. It was certainly a lot cuter than the live action one.

Just saw The Nutcracker, etc.etc. this afternoon.

It was ..... okay. Spectacular in 3D and a nice couple of twists near the end of it.

But once was enough. And IMAX (we saw it on regular screen) would have hurt my eyes, lol.

Ho ho ho. 7/10 Popcorn Boxes

We saw Ralph 2.0 this afternoon and it was alright. But....

Has anyone seen this new trailer for a new animated film called ... Wonder Park?

OMG I could not believe what was in it all. A theme park fanboi's wet dream, LOL!
Here's the link to one of the first trailers....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQhQVd8AYOo

And in 3D too. :lover: Coming in MARCH 2019.





And yes, I have every intention to buy the Blue Ray ~ 3D DVD, when it's eventually released. :smile:

I recently watched the 2009 remake of My Bloody Valentine on Netflix. But there was a problem with the film: the kills were edited! It was frustrating to see Netflix showcase a watered-down version of the film's kills (while keeping all the other non family-friendly content uncensored) but at the same time, I couldn't help but think how it mirrored the original's troubled history with the MPAA (which had 9 minutes cut from the theatrical version and not all of that footage has been recovered).

Additionally, I'm somewhat surprised that it hasn't garnered a sequel yet, considering there's a few unresolved plot points and how financially well the film did ($100M against a $14M budget). Maybe when the CW finally puts Supernatural out of its misery.
