- Bohemian Rhapsody (2018).
I was 6 years old when I watched Queen at Live Aid. It was a really big deal and Geldof the organiser was Irish, so it was a big thing at that time. I was 11 years old when Freddie Mercury died and can still remember that horrible day. My favourite song by Queen is 'Who wants to live forever'. This movie is epic, like Grease, and Rami Malek is right up there with the likes of Christian Bale in terms of raw talent. Even taking on a role as Iconic as Freddie Mercury and fucking it up, could be the end of your career as you know it. Malek took a gamble on himself and his ability that has paid out ten fold. This movie tells the story of Queen and their iconic singer Mercury, who defied stereotypes and rebelled against the social norms of what is, or what was, acceptable in society during his career, too rise to become one of the biggest bands in the world through their iconic songs, revolutionary sounds and unparalleled success. In the early 80s, Mercury surrounds himself with the kind of people who will give you an umbrella when it's sunny, and then ask for it back when it starts to rain, the hangers-on, the fame wannabes, the moochers that twist our minds because they want a piece of us. Influenced by such, Mercury shuns Queen to go off experimenting, opening himself up to life's possibilities, while sniffing a lot of cola and having the time of his life - sexually. When Live Aid comes around in 1984, Queen regroup and Mercury leads the band in one of the greatest performances in rock music history, all the while, poor Freddie is fighting a losing battle with the deadly AIDS virus that he tries to keep secret. Queen's legacy will be around long after we are all gone, and Freddie Mercury will be forever etched in our hearts...Thanks Freddie, we miss you, rest in peace.
