I haven’t enjoyed myself at a movie in a very long time. Although, Bohemian Rhapsody was a different story. I absolutely love this flick. I found myself questioning the characters. There were parts of the movie where i thought it was really the band, Queen. Each one of these guys looked exactly like the original members. The whole Queen story is amazing. When I look back now at some of the songs Freddy wrote, I’m speechless. I did learn a thing or two watching this flick.
These guys were college educated, intelligent people. This was not a band of gypsies. How they wrote some of their masterpiece hits is beyond me. I grew up in the in the 70’s and 80’s, which was the hay day for Queen. In fact, I remember buying the exact skin tight white Freddy Mercury spandex outfit. It cam complete with either a cucumber, a zucchini or a potato to stuff in the front to impress the ladies. Unfortunately for my music career, it ended as quick as it started when I jumped out on stage in my brand new skin tight Freddy Mercery ballerina tutu. And just my luck, I chose the potato over the zucchini and the stitching just couldn’t handle it as my tutu busted wide open in the middle of the first song and unknown to me, the potato fell out and rolled across the stage.
Well it didn’t take long for every girl to turn and run for the exit. I guess what they were looking at was really an illusion, but they just didn’t know it until that extra large potato took on a mind of its own and rolled off the stage into the audience. My career ended that night, sadly. Although, I did once park cars at a rock ‘n roll live event but other than that, I was done. I could only live vicariously through my hero’s, as Freddy Mercury being one of them. I took to dancing around my house in my mother’s nightgown (Hey, what can I tell ya, I was now 30 years old, still living at home, no money, no job, no car, but I wouldn’t let that hold me back! I had a dream…or some might call it a nightmare!) singing “We are the champions”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”, and “Tie Your Mother Down”, to name a few.
Back to the movie, I’m probably going to go see “Bohemian Rhapsody” for a second time. I’ve always loved rock ‘n roll movies about bands but this movie delivered so much in so many ways. There were multiple messages through the movie, along with great music. Long live, Freddy!
I give this movie a 10 out of 10!
