    I don’t how you’d explain the movie “Jack and Jill”.

    I have only seen the trailer and that was more than enough.

    I get it that he churns out some turds so his mates can take a cheque, but wow, there has to be a modicum of dignity and pride in your work.

    Watched “A star is born” last night.

    Pretty good.

    Bradley Cooper is always good but Gaga steals the show. What a talent, and a stone fox to boot.

    Bohemian Rhapsody.

    Some historical inaccuracies such as when Freddie found out about his disease, and a little white lie about them needing to get back together so close to Live Aid, but Rami Malek was a stone cold star in this. His portrayal of Mercury is excellent - he doesn’t over play the campy persona, and yet he has enough of it to create some good light humour.

    And Queen. I mean the music is was and always will be epic so that puts the cherry right on top in this one.

    Bohemian Rhapsody.

    I agree with the historical inaccuracies but that aside, I thought the casting was bang on and as a diehard Queen fan there were quite a few spine tingling moments.

    Top flick. Well worth the wait.

    Downsizing. Matt Damon. Very strange movie about people undergoing a procedure to shrink down to 5inches tall. 5.5/10

    Yep Bohemian Rhapsody.

    It's been getting some hate and I don't get why.

    It was pretty fast paced in the first act I thought. And Maleks portrayal of Freddie made it hard to believe there was a personality like that out there. But, from everything else I have read about Freddie, it's accurate. Brilliant.

    And the moment of reconciliation for Freddie was a tear jerker.

    Also, cudos for the perfectly timed and amount of humour they put in it.

    I don’t get the hate either. But that’s been Queens lot right. There’s a like Freddie says in the movie about who they play for that perfectly sums it up.

    I think sometimes critics are too into technical aspects, but holy hell, I have never seen a theatre stand up and applaud the end of a movie so I think the critics and fans are at polar opposites on this one. And the fans are the ones who pay the cash so I’ll take their opinion on this one.

    Totally agree on Rami. Hand him the Oscar now. That portrayal of Freddie is a work of art.

    I went into Bohemian Rhapsody with great skepticism. I refuse to buy DVDs in this age of streaming. I WILL be buying the DVD without any shadow of a doubt.

    Prob the best movie I've seen in years .
    The casting was extrodinary ..even down to Freddie's mum ... there's only one FM & I didn't think anyone could do a worthy job of portraying him but Rami Malek was awesome ...outstanding
    & the recreation of the Live Aid concert was insane ..the attention to detail 100%. Even down to the Pepsi cups & a half full plastic cup of beer on his piano .

    I gave it 10/10 ...an extra point prob due to the nostalgia factor .

    Just go see it

    I know I'm a little late to the party and it's somewhat a chick flick, but I just got around to watching Silver Linings Playbook. Thought it was tops, and as for Jennifer Lawrence?

    splooge.

    Bradley Cooper is easily my favourite actor going around at the moment, I could sit and watch a video of him reading the newspaper while taking a shit... well, maybe not lol

    Hoping to catch A Star Is Born during the week, and am also about to watch The Place Beyond the Pines as well.

    Cooperfest 2018 is well underway.

    Yes I noticed that too. The Pepsi cups and the beer I remember from Live Aid. So many amazing little details.

    Best I've seen in years and going back to watch it again and I'm not a Queen fan

    Great movie and that must have been Brian May's twin, so well acted

    Funny thing is I was telling someone about the movie and actually said to them that if you’re not a fan of Queen you will be after you see this film.

    Seems you’ve proven my theory correct Twiz

    Wait till you see Jack and Jill. It makes bedtime stories look like Titanic.

    Same here.

    I rarely buy CDs these days but I have bought the soundtrack.

    Also, how good was the Brian May version of the Twentieth Century Fox theme at the start? Mind blowing.

    He’s a seriously underrated musician. But the dude that is grossly underestimated in Queen was John Deacon IMO.

    Love the scene where Roger Taylor is singing the highest note in Bohemian Rhapsody. Excellent scene.

    Gladiator

    Not the Rusty Crowe one, but the boxing one starring James Marshall, Brian Dennehy and Cuba Gooding Jr.

    I enjoyed it, Brian Dennehy can sure play a real merkin, just like he did in First Blood which I also watched for the first time in over 30 years a couple of weeks ago.

    3.10 to Yuma. Watched this when it was in theatres and didn’t think that much of it, rewatching now I realise it is quite a good movie. Good western feel with a simple story and good performances. 7.5/10
    Now to go play so more Red Dead.
