Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody
Director: Bryan Singer
Writers: Anthony McCarten
Cast: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech, Mike Myers
Studio: 20th Century Fox
Rated PG-13 | 134 Minutes
Release Date: November 2, 2018

Bohemian Rhapsody buzzes with electricity from the moment Freddie Mercury and the rest of Queen step foot on stage. Watching these musical sequences is like witnessing a legendary act that deserves to be seen live. And although the film did have its production problems, it holds together well thanks to Rami Malek’s performance as the iconic Freddie Mercury.

Still, no film is without its faults. While the supporting cast is great as they are doing the best with what they are given, the minor issues are not nearly enough to overshadow Malek, who is the beating heart of this film, and the musical performances that will surely have you stomp your foot and clap repeatedly. Check out my review of Bohemian Rhapsody below.

Bohemian Rhapsody trailer

20th Century Fox has released the final trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody starring Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, the lead singer of Queen. The biopic film, which hits theaters next week, has already been screened for various critics.

And while many have praised Malek’s performance, they also agree that the film suffers from far too by-the-numbers storytelling. However, if none of the behind-the-scenes drama that nearly all bands suffer interests you, then the compilations of songs used with the addition of creating the title song and the Live-Aid final is worth watching. Check out the latest trailer below.

Queen's Freddie Mercury Live Aid 1985

Highlander 30th anniversary image header

Highlander
30th Anniversary Edition – Director’s Cut
Blu-ray
Directed Russell Mulcahy
Starring Christopher Lambert, Roxanne Hart, Clancy Brown, Sean Connery
Lionsgate Home Video
Release date: September 27, 2016

Russell Mulcahy‘s 1986 feature Highlander centers on Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert), a man born in the Scottish Highlands in the 1500s who discovers he’s immortal after he miraculously recovers from a deadly wound he sustained during his first battle against a rival clan. The film seamlessly goes back and forth between MacLeod’s past in 16th century Scotland and his current life as antiques dealer Russell Nash in modern-day New York City, with a few other brief past-life flashbacks thrown in. Under the tutelage of Sean Connery‘s Ramírez, a fellow Immortal, MacLeod learns to swordfight and use his strength in preparation for the eventual Gathering, when all Immortals will be summoned together to fight for “The Prize.”

In modern-day, MacLeod comes under suspicion by the police after a man is found decapitated by an extremely rare broadsword, which was recovered at the crime scene by police forensics pathologist Brenda Wyatt (Roxanne Hart), who seeks to know more about the weapon and where it came from. Meanwhile, the Kurgan (Clancy Brown), the fierce warrior who dealt Connor that initial deadly blow back in Scotland, has arrived in New York City to seek the Highlander out and finish what he started so long ago.

A Cappella Science Bohemian Gravity

Here’s an awesome little a capella summary of string theory sung in many, many parts to the tune of Queen‘s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” It was compiled at McGill University by Canadian physics student Timothy Blaise, who recently completed his Master’s Degree.

If Queen’s Brian May (Ph.D, Astrophysics, Imperial College London, 2007) does not approve of this, there is something physically wrong with the Universe.
