Saw the “Bohemian Rhapsody” movie earlier today and I was really surprised by it, turned out really great!

“Bohemian Rhapsody” turned out to be a great film. I’ve seen Queen’s – Live Aid performance many times before but the film made me want to watch it again.

There are only very few music biopic films that I like. My favorite music biopic movies are: “La Bamba”, “The Buddy Holly Story”, “Walk the Line”, “Ray” (the movie about Ray Charles starring Jamie Foxx), “Straight Outta Compton” and now you can add “Bohemian Rhapsody” to the list.

Whether you’re a die-hard Queen fan or not much of a fan, either way you need to go see it. The movie seemed pretty accurate with the history of Queen which is what impressed me the most. “Bohemian Rhapsody” was really great, I liked it a lot. Check it out.

Before some of you watch this film, I know some of you are going to be like, “Am I going to be watching a lot of gay stuff due to Freddie’s bi-sexual lifestyle?” Yes, you’re definitely going to see homosexual stuff in the film but not too bad. They don’t go too overboard with the gay stuff so there’s nothing worry about. This is not “Brokeback Mountain”. They wanted to keep “Bohemian Rhapsody” as family friendly as possible as a film for all ages. Freddie lived a pretty wild and crazy lifestyle. They didn’t put a lot of that stuff in the film but they did put some of his crazy life in the film, though.

I thought the film was well done. It was well-directed, well-acted and well-written too. You should definitely go check it out. I’ll definitely get the BluRay.

Report: It’s official, Adam Lambert is now singer for Queen!!!

According to Adam Lambert himself, he is the new lead singer for, Queen. I’m no fan of Lambert, but I must admit this is an interesting choice. He does resemble Freddie Mercury and even sings like him, so why not? I’ll give him a chance.

BREAKING NEWS: Sacha Baron Cohen will play Freddie Mercury!!!

Sacha Baron Cohen has officially signed himself a role to star as Freddie Mercury, the lead singer of legendary rock band, Queen, for the upcoming, “Freddie Mercury”, biopic. Sacha has been well known to playing homosexual characters such as Borat and Bruno, Sacha will play a gay character once again. See this article at, Deadline.

I wonder why Sacha, is always interested in playing gay characters in films. I don’t think he’s gay in real life ’cause he’s been with Isla Fisher for many years, married to her too. Never know, maybe Sacha is a closeted bi-sexual. Freddy Mercury wasn’t just gay, he liked women too.

This is really great casting. I always thought Sacha was almost identical looking to, Freddie. The question is will Sacha be able to sing like him? I’m sure he’ll get voice coaching to prepare for the role. Sacha does sing though. I smell Oscar award for Sacha for this role? Hopefully???
