    The Film Thread

    And so, the review that noone was asking or waiting for: Bohemian Rhapsody. It's full of inaccurassies, like Fat bottomed girls, recorded in '78, being played on a tour in 1975. A tour that really took place in '76 or '77. And more. But of course I loved it anyway. The fact that I saw it for the second time yesterday and considers to watch it again pretty much says it all, I guess. I thought the acting was good, expecially from Malek and Lee. And Hollander. But Gwylim Lee looked and sounded like the real Brian May. So much that I sometimes forgot that it actually wasn't him but an actor. Thw only thing that bothered me a bit was Roger Taylor being made to look like a sulking little boy, which he isn't. He's a very intelligent, funny and fiery man. At least according to those who knew him. All in all, biased as I am, 10/10. Of course it's not that good, but, you know, it's a film about Queen.

    What Album Are You Listening To Right Now?

    Indeed. As you think early Queen were decent there's a possible little gem on this one. A new version of Doing alright without Freddie but with Tim Staffel doing some of the vocals. It's on Spotify.

    Just stay away from LAJ's. At least if you want it to stay true. Peter Freestone's is probably very accurate, but he's not the best writer. Then there's Jim Hutton's, of course, but he was only a part of his life in his last 6 or 7 years, or something like that. Glad you liked it. Will watch it on Thursday, and can't wait.

    I have his book "Factfulness". I have to start to read it. Got it from work a few weeks ago. Didn't know that about population.

    Haven't seen it yet, so can't say, but I go to watch a movie to be entertained first and foremost. But yes, that's one of the criticisms. That and that didn't go into depth about Freddie's private life. The press wanted to overindulge on his sex life then and they want it today. But I don't really care.

    That's just how it's always been. Just read that Lesley Ann Jones, who wrote Freddie's biography, thought that they had left out a lot of things. The thing is she doesn't know sh**e. Apparently she often writes a biography about a dead musician, saying she used to hang out with them and knew them well, when all those who actually did says she's just writing bs and she wasn't actually there, and her books are mostlly made up stories. Her latest victim is a certain David Bowie.

    Anyone Watching A Good Tv Show?

    Actuallt started to watch it last night. Or rather, the missus was as a I fell asleep in recliner. Anyway, I woke up in the 2nd or 3rd episode and started to follow it briefly, but the longer it went on the more it caught my eye. Thought it was very good. At least untill E5 where we decided that it was time to go to bed as she was sleeping on the couch.

    Yeah, that's how I feel too. For some reason these books seems to have gone under the radar. I you're right in that however it pans out it still should've been done better as it deserves to be done better. Really a stupid thing to say, but still true.

    Reading the reviews makes me feel like we've gone back 30-40 years in time. The critics doesn't like it, the fans love it. Looking forward to it. Will probably watch it on Thursday.

    Also true. And we're already consuming too much. Sometimes I think this planet would be better off without us. And sometimes it feels like it's doing its best to get rid of us.
