I'm allowed too have an opinion about how this movie should be done. I been a die hard fan for almost 30 years. I'm more Qualified than most producers who in all honesty only know Bo Rhap and we will Rock You. Most people on this site would do a better Job than Brian May and Roger, who at the end of the day are going too protect the bands reputation Instead of telling the truth. Tell a story about this cute band Queen that the children will go and see.

Some of you have such a negative nature. To an extent that a new movie is written off before we have even seen a trailer. No matter what they include in this film people will be unhappy on here. In fact I understand why Queen think more about the general public than the hardcore Queen fan. Queen fans are impossible to satisfy anyway. And secondly its not the tiny group of hardcore Queen fans who will make them money anyway. So why bother with us fans? The upside is much bigger if they manage to create some interest in the general public.


Basically blind em and deaf em in the first 10 minutes, and while they are recovering from that put in the less good songs

Mike Hunt: Of course you are allowed to have your own opinion. What you want is a documentary. If you have given up the film already I expect you wont be watching it at all. Why should you? You have decided its shit before we have even seen 5 seconds of it. Do you think Queen were a hardcore band after rock standards? Well, if there are cute stories in the rock world from the 70s Queen are probably one of them.

movies don't need to be good anymore - they just need to attract enough attention in their first week to be success. they key is monitoring a lean budget and have at least one recognizable star.

40% of the producers are members of Queen, plus Jim Beach

You're allowed opinions, but we're allowed to point out factual errors and have our own opinions....

Of course we're going to disagree on certain things....but, Sometimes it takes an outside source to make a proper movie about a band. Not the band themselves......while I do agree Queen wern't a hardcore party band as a whole I think It's a fact freddie was. I read an article about Elton a few months ago where he stated (not many people in my day could out party me In the 70's/early 80's, but Freddie Mercury did. Now Freddie Mercury could party) are they going to make him out too be a saint and make a disney movie? Or tell the true story? I never said the movie will be shit if they don't make It a certain way. The movie could mostly be about live Aid and still be a good movie, but going by their track record since Freddie died I would bet against it. They got very little right in the last 26 years.

I think it's great it ends with Live Aid, in respect of Freddie's wish "never make me boring", he also liked to have a good time.

Also the entertainment value will be better, I think. Go out of the theatre on a good feeling - hopefully!

I'm not negative.....they got a few things right since 1991. Made In Heaven, Rainbow, live at the Bowl. The only thing missing is a proper Anothology and maybe a late 70's DvD. I think this movie is a good opportunity for them to reach a new generation the way Waynes World did in the early 90's... If they get it right.

I hope so Mike! I am staying positive until the opposite is proven. I think life is more fun looking forward to things rather than expecting disaster all the time. But sure, they may get it wrong. I'll just cross that bridge when it is in front of me ;)

They won't be speaking about Montserrat Caballé and Barcelona?! I hope our assumptions are false.

I hope so....Barcelona is one of my favorite albums he did. I was listening to the remake with the real orchestra the other day. Not as good as the original, but still had good moments.

Inasmuch as it's a shame not to tell the 'whole' story - do we really need another assemblage of AIDS porn?

That UK TV documentary from last year with John Blunt was a maudlin, low rent joke - it really was just 90 minutes of Freddie hanging out with different people saying "I have AIDS darlings!" and then dropping dead.

If people really need a visual re-enactment of his last years, I guess they can hunt that thing down - but it's pretty much all in books already. A good movie (and I have no idea if this is going to be a good one or not) has a trajectory of its own. You might find that ending on Live Aid, or being book-ended by Live Aid, or however they're doing it - might be the best presentation for the bits of the story that they'd like to tell.

This is why there are good autobiographies that don't end with the author writing "oh .. oh God it's coming, I can feel the end - bluuuarrggh!" before the pen trails off the page.

I am more concerned about maliks singing. Freddies voice is so unique and irreplacable that imo all, beside speaking, should be His voice. Any singer singing queen ends up with a louzier result then the original.

True, even good singers sound off singing Queen songs. That's why I'm hoping they use freddie's Voice for the movie.

Unless I misheard, they have a mimic doing the singing voice that sounds a lot more like Freddie than Rami is ever going to look like him.

I should think that one glaring lack of resemblance would trump the other.

I think Marc Martel has done some vocal work for the film. I’d like to know who has recorded the other parts....I can’t imagine Brian and Roger have re-recorded anything so which musicians will they have on the soundtrack?

^ they damn well BETTER HAVE recorded their own parts. (*possibly excluding Roger for faster drumming.)

Otherwise it won't sound QUEEN.

John of course. ..keep his old bass lines. Maybe sub them in from all the live multi tracks they don't share for sale or rent.
