Film General : Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

I expected better. It was nothing great.

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

Sort of agree. It’s overhyped. The performances were great though. When Sacsha Baren Cohen was attached to play Freddy, it was going to be darker and a hard-R.

What did you think about A Star is Born?

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

I didn’t see it.

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

Cohen wanted the film to be true to life. The members of Queen were worried about their bullshit legacy and nix'd Cohen from the project. Typical bullshit. I detest Queen and all they stand for.

Uh, look man. Make tool! Caveman. No fool!

FM was a creative genius and great performer and Queen made great music.

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

Not my thing, too campy. His duet with Bowie was moribund.

It sounds like their real life behind the scenes would have made a great movie. But I read that Cohen felt the movie was not crazy enough and the guys from Queen had too much control and they were worried about PR for the band.

I agree…and had to deal with the craziest Freddie fanatic / Glambert on IMDb's American Idol board for 6 years…lol

She was more obsessed with me, but it was fun and a headache at the same time.

If you thought I got more crap on this board, you should've seen her drill me on that one…OH MY

And I didn't even post any pics of myself there.

I don't know much about Queen in their heyday, but they didn't mix well with American Idol…and it was too obvious the producers and the media were trying to shove them and Adam down people's throats, and they used that to sabotage the guy who won that season…and that is what I attempted to defend.

I didn't see the film, but I know it wouldn't touch on any meaning behind the lyrics to the song, Bohemian Rhapsody, nor anything that would make it interesting.

It's just another shameless plug for the band to sell those overplayed songs ad nauseam

I do find some of the interpretations of the song interesting though
This would've been something Belize would've had a field day with arguing with me about, along with giving me flack about Adam performing at the Oscars.
Not to mention that she would've laughed her ass off over the scandalous path I had taken since leaving that board…especially that I used to plug Luke Shaffer's songs there at the time, and she knew I wasn't him, though I never claimed I was him back then.




Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

Yeah, I do not like Queen's campy music. But a film on their lives could be a great one.

Queen's first two albums were great: Hard hitting clean guitar-fueled glam rock. But Bohemian Rhapsody was a faux-operatic farce.

It seems Cohen left because he wanted to show the good and the bad, not just do a promo for Queen's music.

If Cohen had been involved it would have been a great movie. Here's a quote from Cohen about Mercury and the direction he would have taken the film:
“There are amazing stories about Freddie Mercury,” Cohen said on The Howard Stern Show Tuesday. “The guy was wild. I mean he was living an extreme lifestyle. There are stories of… little people with plates with cocaine on their heads walking around a party.”

She's WAY off IMO.

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

She cray.

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

well…she's referring to esoteric philosophical doctrine

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

She said that Prince and Nicki Minaj are transgender. And that most celebs aren’t human, or if they are, they are transgender. She’s been smoking the good stuff.

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

If I had posted that vid on the AI board on IMDb, Belize would've said I was cray for posting it and that she turned that shit off a few seconds in and wasn't gonna watch any more retarded stuff that I posted…lol

Sometimes, I'd deliberately post things that I knew would set her off…that's why she liked me so much ; )

She told me I belonged in a nut house for mentioning Adam's Aleister Crowley tattoo and the Illuminati and that's around the time she left the board for good…lol

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

How did you type that so fast.

Strange things happen when I mention that stuff…lol

Didn't see it, but felt that way about Green Book. Thoughts on that one?

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

I’m not sure if he’s capable of articulating thoughts.

Perhaps Geewizz and him should get together and they could form a vaguely normal human being.

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

I was already very close with Patrick…he was the reason I got involved with the Soapbox right after IMDb closed their boards.

I joined the chat group he was in a couple months later and we hung out nearly every night for several months.

He's the one who talked me into coming here after a month of being on the hive, and I was hanging out with him and Nimda in ITTY's tinychat.

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

Excuse me?

What the fuck is this? Non sequitur catfishing?

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

lol

Hence why I asked!

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

I think you should review The Haunting of Hill House….wink

Not as great as the old cyber days! Lulz.

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

Haven't seen it. I love FM. Just not a fan of biopics in general though.

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

Agreed. I started to watch it on a plane, and became bored. So I turned it off. Meh.

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

I did the same thing. I have it on DVD and it took me three days to finally finish it because I kept getting bored and turned it off, then later would go back and start watching it again. I still fast forward through some of it.

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

Yep. Why it was nominated for an Oscar is beyond me. Perhaps there was a bribe involved.

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

It has a rating on IMDb!

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

Yes it does. Good detective work there Lt. TNT.

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

Okay. Just messin' with ya.

Most movies are mediocre lately, and hardly worth the price of going to the cinema for.

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.



The only good one I've seen recently is Green Book.

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

I thought the same thing, and the way some of the scenes went on and on for no real reason like when they were talking about recording Bohemian Rhapsody and then when they were out in the country studio recording it. I have the DVD and I started fast forwarding through some of it.

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody was actually a very mediocre film.

I don’t think the movie review business is for you, mate.
