Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody ★★

Hm. It wasn’t....HORRIBLE. But yeah. From my general knowledge of Freddie, as well as what this movie is saying, he was the epitome of pushing boundaries and thinking outside the box and this movie is literally the fucking box. Straight Outta Compton and this felt so similar in how they were shot and told and they are about two COMPLETELY different groups. That’s an issue. Everything besides Rami’s performance and the cinematography was just okay. That being said it was watchable and I guess I did stay entertained throughout it’s entirety. But when you look at what exactly this film means and the man it surrounds...Freddie deserves better, or maybe nobody should make anything about him in general being how unique his approach is. Also how is nobody talking about the GOD awful editing. It was like an Edgar Wright film that wasn’t paced well or cut right which is THE WORST POSSIBLE THING.
