Is Bohemian Rhapsody really an award-worthy film? Have your say

Recommended Posts

Bohemian Rhapsody was a boring movie about a boring band.

Great movie and great band in many ways. Freddie was a genius risk taker and the world is a better place because of Queen and Freddie.  How many albums do you hear that are extremely great and unusual?  This album was both and so were albums by Nirvana, Pink Floyd, the Beatles, Elvis, Michael Jackson Thriller, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Elton John, Willie Nelson, Aretha Franklin, Johnny Cash .......

 

I wish movies were historical accurate but they have to make a profit and they put their twist on the facts for a good story.

Excellent movie. Great casting, acting and especially the music. Liked it so much...watched it on 2 consecutive long haul flights.

It gets my vote! :thumbsup:

Haven't seen it, but wouldn't be surprised. Many unworthy movies won an Oscar for best film. Did these movies deserve it?

Shakespear in Love.

Crash.

Rocky.

Gravity.

The English Patient.

Argo.

LaLa Land.

I'm sure you can add more.

I'm sure I can subtract one: Gravity did not win Best Movie Oscar.

I think you put too much on the importance of music. I doubt Queen changed anything in the real world. After all, it's just entertainment, not a cure for cancer or bringing about world peace.

Even the Beatles would probably be unknown by most young people today.

My opinion: brilliant film worthy of the awards it receives. Believable and memorable. It is a celebration of the music of the group and the lead singer.

In my view it also gives a devastating glimpse into the early days of AIDS/HIV.
