At the movies

The animation for masters is probably better than heavy metal, though with less boobs. Most American 80s animation hasn’t aged well. The Japanese stuff stands up much better


#7367

Jane Fonda is far easier on the eye than HAL.


#7368

Wrong, all of it


#7369

Cover 10 on 10


#7370

La Haine. Really good.


#7371

Bohemian Rhapsody. Not going to win any awards. And it glosses over some of the most interesting (but less palatable) parts of the story. But it’s a heap of fun, the music is obviously fabulous and Rami Malek rips up every scene he’s in. Recommend


#7372

Am going to see it Thursday night, so thanks for the info. :slightly_smiling_face:


#7373

yeah I enjoyed it a lot, even though it was a pretty bland story (not to mention the blatant lies re timelines and events!) But the music was sensational, and Rami Malek was amazing. Will head back to see it again next weekend :slight_smile:


#7374

Who plays Brian mays hair


#7375

I watched The Green Room, a film about a punk band trapped after playing a gig for neo-nazis, on Netflix.
I was looking for something a bit offbeat, would have preferred some smart sci-fi but didn’t see anything that appealed.
Patrick Stewart was okay.
It’s quite graphic in parts, very dark (as in you can’t see much) for a lot of it.
On the whole I probably wouldn’t bother.


#7376

Went to see Bohemian Rhapsody tonight agree with @SMJ and @Koala re being entertaining and yes the music was fabulous (am still singing Radio Gaga in my mind).

All the performances were good and Rami Malek was outstanding.

(reckon even Freddy would have loved his performance)


#7377

Saw Eyes Wide Shut last night since it was on TV. Honestly reckon it’s one of Kubricks’ better movies, despite popular opinion saying otherwise. Not as pretentious as his earlier stuff and I think that helped convey his messages. The more I think about it, the more I like it.


#7378

Watching jaws.
Still terrifying.


#7379

I reckon Malek has the capacity to be one of the great actors of his generation (or any generation).


#7380

Yep, he has the capacity and I hope he develops into a great actor.

I have not seen him in anything else (as yet), so checked out what other movies he has been in, haven’t seen any of them.

Will have to watch a few now. :slightly_smiling_face:

I went and saw Bohemian Rhapsody today. Very enjoyable (in some regards). Poor old Mary! I always thought You’re My Best Friend was written for her, but it was written by one of the others.

Live-Aid scenes were great. Had Freddy really been diagnosed by the time of Live-Aid, because he died 6 years later. I thought the illness time was 2-3 years.

At least they can put Luna Park’s teeth back in now.

I didn’t recognise Brian May as one of Barnaby’s sergeants in Midsomer Murders. I’m sure he didn’t have that hair in MM.

And Eugene Sledge from The Pacific as John Deacon.

But Aiden Gillen copped his karma whack for his arseholiness in GOT…and I didn’t recognise Mike Myers.


#7382

Don’t know, think I read somewhere he was diagnosed in 1987.

For GOT watchers, took me half the movie to figure out where I had seen their manager before, he is Littlefinger in GOT.


#7383

He’s Mayor Carcetti from The Wire


#7384

Oh OK, I know The Wire, but have never watched it.


#7385

Never go to the cinema these days but will make an effort for Bohemian Rhapsody.

Funny thing is I’ve always been a huge Queen fan but thought that song is totally overrated in their catalogue.
Bit like Stairway with Zep and Jump with VH.

Nice to read people are enjoying the flick.
Has encouraged me to go see it.
