I’m not really a big fan of music biopic films. Ya know, music stars and bands getting their own big screen movies ’cause most of them are not accurate but some of the best music biopics I’ve seen over the years of my life were: “La Bamba” (the Ritchie Valens biopic with Lou Diamond Phillips), “The Buddy Holly Story” (w/ Gary Busey playing Buddy), “Walk the Line” (w/ Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash) and “Straight Outta Compton” (a film about the rap group the NWA, yeah I thought this film was really good). That’s pretty much it really.
I’m really excited for this one, though. The biopic film about the band Queen which is a band that I love. I don’t think I’ve bought Queen’s records but I have a greatest hits album by them on CD that I listened to a lot in the past. I should start getting their studio albums, though and I will ’cause I really love the band.
This trailer did give me goosebumps and I can’t wait. I’m definitely gonna go see this one in October for sure. They did a really good job with the trailer. Lets just hope the movie itself won’t suck ’cause sometimes movie trailers try to fool ya like that. Ya know, make the movie look good but when you actually go see it, the film turns out to be shit. I’m sure it won’t be shit, though. We’ll wait and see the film for ourselves.
This film was obviously made for die-hard Queen fans and this film could introduce new fans too ’cause I’m sure there’s plenty of people today that haven’t even heard the band Queen before. Why? It’s because the industry today is so hung up on pop music, rap and country that people forgot real music existed. Maybe this film will give people a wake up call that real music is out there?
