All hail the queen!!! All hail great art and incredible music.. hold on- matter of fact ALL HAIL the best movie of 2018… PERIOD! BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, the story of the amazing hit making group QUEEN and the true legendary personality, man with THE voice the great and unforgettable FREDDIE MERCURY!
What can top legendary? Back when it was originally released, the so called music critics got it all wrong with “Bohemian Rhapsody” when the song came out. This time, let’s say it again, with the early viewing-the critics got it wrong again with “Bohemian Rhapsody” the movie. Taking the world by storm and bringing Freddie Mercury back to life, The beauty of his life and the music of Queen, this is a movie made for everyone to enjoy and appreciate and it ensured their music touched the nerves of their audience.
From this movies opening with the 20th century fox rock rendition, until the end with the performance that’s remembered for all lifetimes (the perfect QUEEN LIVE AID PERFORMANCE) this movie didn’t fail. It had its moments where it was moving a little too fast at the beginning but it slowed pace and the classic art began! Steady paced, great character build up, the ups and the downs and the most amazing soundtrack ever! This movie was incredible. I did say that the movie A STAR IS BORN was the best movie of 2018, but this movie right here…. by it being true to life and shows the beauty of legends BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY is the best movie of the year hands down. Credit must be given to the entire production team for making this movie so believable. The cast was so incredible that you seriously forget that you were watching actors but rather felt like you were the fly-on-wall and a patron at the concert seeing these events happen right in front of you. I must also give a standing ovation to the lead actor Rami Malek for taking in every essence of Freddie Mercury, and replicating it on the big screen with total perfection. He definitely embraced him.
I’m giving this movie a….. drumroll….. you guessed it??? A pure 5.0 amazing impossible burgers with vegan cheese and seasoned fries. PERFECTION!! This movie touched my heart more than any other that I’ve seen. The music was mesmerizing, and was adroitly and intricately woven into each sequence, each act and carried each arc of the movie, right up to its climatic conclusion : the band’s epic Live Aid performance. It will give you goosebumps, I assure you. And make you cry, which I almost did! You must and I mean must get up off the couch, get down to the theater with and see this classic. You might even see it again… and again. If you weren’t before, you will be a QUEEN fan afterwards! Embrace the legend and r.i.p. Freddie!!!
