Bohemian Rhapsody Review

Nora T.

Because of the recently released movie, Queen’s legacy continues to reach people around the world.  The biographical movie about Queen (or more specifically its lead singer, Freddie Mercury) has hit the nation by storm.  Starring Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joe Mazzello, Allen Leech, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Mike Myers, and Aaron McCusker.  Rami Malek won an Oscar for Best Actor for his role as Freddie Mercury in this movie. This movie brought the amazing true story of maybe the most famous band ever to millions.  The band’s song “Bohemian Rhapsody”, which is considered one of the best rock songs to this day, was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2004.

Bohemian Rhapsody (the movie) brings the lives of the members of Queen to light in a touching story.  The attention to detail is surreal; if you watch a video of the real Live-Aid performance and then the one in the movie, they are almost identical, down to Pepsis and cups of beer sitting on the piano.  The movie won twelve awards, including Academy Award for Best Sound Mixing, Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture, and Academy Award for Best Film editing.

If you haven’t seen Bohemian Rhapsody, I beg you, rent it On Demand and watch it.  It’s one of those movies, I think, that even after a long time, even after everyone who ever knew and listened to Queen is gone, will be loved.
