Movie: Bohemian Rhapsody

I saw this a few weeks ago. Probably everybody else in the world has seen it too.

Yes, Rami Malek captures Freddie Mercury well. Yes, it was good to hear all that Queen music again. But the first half of the film just felt like a lame Saturday afternoon “I know boys! Let’s start a band!!” matinee film (for those of us old enough to remember matinee films). I couldn’t believe just how bad it was.

But then the Live Aid concert started, and it was very, very good (especially when you compare the real footage with the film.)

So, it just goes to show – the old saying was right: it’s not how you start but how you finish.

  1. Never picked you for a Queen fan! A propos of nothing at all except maybe the good old days, the movie I would most like to see again is If.
