Synopsis:

Bohemian Rhapsody arrives on home video in a package that includes the movie on Blu-ray and DVD, along with a code for a digital copy and a smattering of bonus features. The film is probably a must-watch for hardcore Queen fans, but anyone wanting a complex portrayal of lead singer Freddie Mercury will be disappointed, since the story is more of a greatest hits of key moments from the band’s history.

My first exposure to Queen was listening to their album News of the World in the basement of an older kid in my neighborhood who was really into music.

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Overcame High Drama in the Editing Room to Vie for the Best Picture Oscar
Bryan Singer’s go-to editor/composer, John Ottman, when he was left on his own without a director when Singer was fired by Fox, helped transform “Bohemian Rhapsody” into the surprise hit of the awards season.

And, after winning the Ace Eddie prize, Ottman now becomes the Best Editing Oscar frontrunner. Of course, it helped having a tour de force performance by Rami Malek as the iconic Freddie Mercury, who’s the favorite to win Best Actor.

“We banded together with all of the high drama to make it work,” said Ottman, who was assisted in the editing room by producer Graham King and partner Denis O’Sullivan. “Even when I’m working with Bryan he likes to leave me alone to do my thing,” he added. “He’ll usually go away on a vacation for a number of weeks as I’m shaping the film and come back and

Synopsis:

A chronicle of the years leading up to Queen’s legendary appearance at the Live Aid (1985) concert.

Immediately after releasing the iconic, genre-bending classic song Bohemian Rhapsody, professional music critics blasted the piece. Like many great works, it was simply misunderstood for its time; something so ambitious and unlike anything out there that no one really knew how to analyze it, or could have ever predicted that it would have become the phenomenon it was and still is today.

Bohemian Rhapsody the film, is already being met with a mixed reaction and understandably so, although much like the success of the song itself,

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Review: A Spirited Rami Malek Can’t Save Bryan Singer’s Royally Embarrassing Queen Biopic

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Review: A Spirited Rami Malek Can’t Save Bryan Singer’s Royally Embarrassing Queen Biopic
Everything you need to know about “Bohemian Rhapsody” — a broad, frivolous, and uselessly formulaic biopic about an inimitable band of misfits — can be surmised from a graphic that gets plastered across the screen in big letters when Queen embarks on their first American tour: “Midwest USA.” Not “Cleveland,” or “Detroit,” or “Kansas City,” but just “Midwest USA.” There’s not even a comma. That’s the degree of specificity in play here.

If not for Rami Malek’s feral posturing as one of rock history’s greatest frontmen, a deep roster of killer songs, and the long shadow of his band’s iconic 1985 performance at Live Aid, this movie could effectively be about any musicians, at any time, rolling through any part of the United States. From the disapproving parents, to the drug-fueled orgies, to the unbelievable scene when a young Freddie Mercury (née Farrokh Bulsara) introduces himself to Brian May
