Movie Review: Bohemian Rhapsody

Guys. Allison and I hadn't seen a movie together since April. It wasn't for lack of trying, but between 2 husbands, 4 children, 2 jobs, sicknesses, and life in has been near impossible. BUT we actually both took a day off work last week to make it happen. The icing on the cake was Allison agreeing to see Bohemian Rhapsody since I've been in love with Queen for over 25 years. Great friends are the best, aren't they? {grin}

Plot: A chronicle of the years leading up to Queen's legendary performance at the Live Aid concert.

Review: Man oh man, I loved this movie! I know the story wasn't 100% accurate, but it was really entertaining, fun, heartbreaking...basically all the feels. Rami Malek was amazing as Freddie Mercury. He adopted so many of Freddie's mannerisms really well and totally deserves all the accolades and award nominations. I think Allison even enjoyed it not being a Queen fan, ha. It made me sad all over again to think about how big of a legend we lost with Freddie Mercury's passing - there really isn't a voice that can compete with his, and the whole band was just a group of geniuses who did amazing things with music. If you like music at all, you'll enjoy this - it was awesome.
