Mr. Poor Grammar,

Just let it be. It's OK to like the film and it's also OK to not like the film. Same with Queen + Adam Lambert. Some people love it and some hate it.

Let it be.

No one will suddenly like or dislike the film more because of your post.

Rocketman whilst not a perfect film is so much better. The dialogue is sharper, the excess is not brushed over and Elton admits at the end to being a c###.

Saw Rocketman by Elton John yesterday. Now that's a true story about the music legend Watching Bohemian Rhapsody is looking at a feel good Disney movie.

Personally, I loved the movie. It might not be completely accurate, but the humor/relationship between the band members and the scenes dedicated to their individual songs made it very enjoyable. I also appreciated that it helped spread Queen's story and their music.

I wish the movie had shown more of the fun loving, optimistic and humourous side Freddie's personality. So many people who knew him found that to be missing in the movie

It's kinda silly to refer to Larry Lurex being the first solo project of a Queen member. At the times it was more like its producer's Geoffrey Cable's project and Queen members, including Freddie, were more like used as "sessions musicians" on the recording. It wasn't really meant to launch Freddie's solo career, now was it?

I do agree though that people using argument "Roger went solo first!" do not understand the contextual difference between odd solo project by a drummer and a solo project by a frontman. They are clearly perceived differently by general public. Roger's solo album is not a sign of band breaking up, for average Joe, while Freddie's one is. And it is well known that the size of the deal, as well as the fact that was with another label, caused tension with a band.

I've seen BohRhap 5 times now, every time I watch it I see more and more flaws, but Its also a new experience for Queen fans, a cinematic one, even though NOTHING happens like in the movie, its pure fiction, it is, kinda like the musical, a new way to frame the songs, maybe even find new approaches to them (i happen to find a new meaning for We are the champions through the movie, and that's cool), and the best thing in my particular case, was that through the movie i had the opportunity to show Queen to members of my family and my wifes family, Im not in the UK or USA, Im in Venezuela, and for my its almost like a moral duty have people to see other than Maluma, J Balvin, Bad Bunny and other Voldemorts of the sort, 'cause here ITS ALL PEOPLE LISTEN, its sickening, and I for once enjoyed a good afternoon wth this people showin' Queen to them, then puttin' the Live Aid concert so they see the difference, then playin' them more and more 'til they pretty much yelled for mercy xD. But even though, even by lovin' the film by seeing it as an standalone cinematic fiction, people should go and see Rocketman, its better xD Cheers.

The movie might have flaws, and it may not be accurate, but it introduced Queen and their music to a new generation and I think that makes up for the mistakes. It's a movie, not a documentary!
