My Review of a Killer Queen Biopic, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’

Check out the Podcast Review Below!

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.  It is almost as if Mercury was resurrected from the dead and performed in his own movie.  The energy that Malek is able to bring to the stage performances are amazing.  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’”

Costumes for feature ‘Power Rangers’ movie revealed!

It was announced nearly a year ago that Lionsgate would be creating a live action, modern, version of the 90’s hit series, Power Rangers.  And after a year of speculation, and small nuggets of news here and there we finally have a look at what the costumes of these teenage heroes will be.

The image was first reported by Entertainment Weekly Thursday morning and showcasing the five rangers – Naomi Scott as the Pink Ranger, singer Becky G. as the Yellow Ranger, RJ Cyler as the Blue Ranger, Ludi Lin as the Black Ranger, and Dacre Montgomery as the Red Ranger – in their new costumes.  Despite criticisms that are already happening, one thing is certain – the new costumes will definitely protect the rangers better than the 90’s spandex costumes. Check out the new costumes below!

Director of the film, Dean Israelite told Entertainment Weekly that, “These suits needed to feel like they were catalyzed by these kids and their energy, their spirit.” Continue reading “Costumes for feature ‘Power Rangers’ movie revealed!”

Bryan Singer Defending X-Men Movie

Almost a year ago Entertainment Weekly released some photos of the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse movie that featured a few of the X-Men and Apocalypse himself.  And with the release of the those photos came an outcry from all over the internet that shredded the look of the first mutant.  Saying that he looked like the Mighty Morphing Power Rangers villain Ivan Ooze (check out a picture of Ooze here).  It looks like Bryan Singer, director of X-Men: Apocalypse heard the millions of voices crying out in terror.

In an interview with IGN Singer explained his choice for selecting Oscar Isaac for the part of Apocalypse.

There was an image released on Entertainment Weekly, where the effect hadn’t been put in yet, so everyone was – the effect has a pink light on it, and everyone got lit up pink, so people thought Apocalypse was going to be pink.  I was like, ‘No no, they’re all pink. Take a look.’ I’m going to take some blame for that.  My fault, not Entertainment Weekly’s.  That’s the picture I game them.
