Bohemian Rhapsody
 
 
I went to see it last night and would highly recommend it, even to those who aren't big Queen fans.

The timeline is a bit all over the place, and at times they did make Freddie out to be a bit of an egomaniac which I didn't agree with i.e. in the story Freddie breaks the band up by going solo, when in reality it was Roger who first decided to go solo, and they were all happy to have a break from the band to pursue solo careers.

I still enjoyed the film overall though, and it's worth the admission fee alone for the recreation of the Live Aid performance at the end of the film.

Very entertaining but to paraphrase:

"is this the real life ?"......... eh, no. Its all fantasy.

Not just time lines all over the place but large chunks factually incorrect as well. The big one being Freddie telling the band that he had aids ...... before Live Aid. He wasn't even diagnosed until 1987.

If you're a big fan you'll pick out all the discrepancies. If you can ignore them it is a genuinely entertaining film.

As a big fan myself, I'm not ashamed to admit that it did bring a tear to my eye and a lump in my throat. [^]

Would only watch it if they left out the music-probably an interesting story but Queenís songs are terrible

With you there mate. The live aid performance at the end had me gping too. Had to wait for the full credits to finish, much to the annoyance of my daughter, before leaving so I could get my act together. [:I]

Loved the film, as said, few discrepancies, but really enjoyed it.

I think you just have to remember it's a film, and not a documentary. Being a Queen fan I did notice the inaccuracies, but it didn't stop me enjoying the film itself.

How many films based on peopleís lives or events that have happened actually stick to exact detail - not many I would imagine. Iím just going along as a fan to enjoy the music and the ďstoryĒ . I was lucky enough to see them live with Freddie and they still one of the best live acts Iíve ever seen. Freddy could really have an audience eating out of the palm of his hand, a true show man was that fella

I saw it earlier this week . Made me feel quite nostalgic. I saw a lot of live aid on TV, Queen were brilliant. My first record was We will Rock you [:D].I enjoyed the film ,didn't pay too much attention to the accuracy and timeline. The actor who played Freddie Mercury was excellent.

Maybe if you ask them nicely Cecil, they'll make a version without the music. Shakes head!

Freddie not an nice person at all. A bit of a mislead legend has built up around him.
