Bohemian Rhapsody is a biopic that chronicles the years leading up to Queen’s incredible, and legendary, performance at the Live Aid 1985 concert. The film is directed by Bryan Singer, and stars Rami Malek in the leading role as the legendary front-man Freddie Mercury.
First off – this movie was a lot of fun to watch. I anticipate seeing it at least once more before its run in the theater comes to an end. It’s not perfect by any means – bad mistakes, it’s made a few. However, if you are in the mood for a fun 80’s binge then the mistakes can be easily overlooked.
From the opening scene you know that this movie is going to be love letter to the band, and to Freddie Mercury. Malek plays the role of Freddie Mercury to pure perfection. He commands every second of screen time given to him, just the way Mercury commanded such a presence when on stage, and in his personal life.

He also nails being able to play Mercury in the quieter moments of the film as well – truly an Oscar worthy performance. Continue reading “My Review of a Killer Queen Biopic, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’”
Ernest Cline‘s famous 2011 Novel “Ready Player One” is very well known for not only being a best selling novel, but also for its hundreds of movie, TV, music, and pop culture references that harken back to the 80’s. Some of the best references in the novel are Steven Spielberg movie references.
Funny enough, Steven Spielberg is now in the process of making a film adaptation of Cline’s novel, and it looks like production is now full steam ahead!
Set pictures of Ready Player One have been released on Twitter thanks to twitter user Michelle Green. The pictures portray spray painted images of different 80’s and 70’s icons like DC Comic’s The Flash, Street Fighter’s Sagat, the mogwai, Gizmo, from the Spielberg produced Gremlins, and the Shark from the Spielberg directed Jaws!
It is hard to speculate in what setting these pictures are in – either our crumbling dystopian future, or from the OASIS, a virtual reality characters in the novel go to in order to escape the crumbling society they live in . Either way, its pretty cool.
Check out the pictures below!
More than likely these pictures are going to be seen in the background of some shots and not front and center. But it is still cool to know they will be there – and that this film is going to be full of references just like in the book.
