Bohemian Rhapsody

I've never been much of a fan of Queen and will usually change the station (or the stream) when one of their songs comes on. I had no interest to see this in the theatre, but caught it on the weekend via a different method.

It was an OK time waster. Glossy, simplistic, shallow (and factually inaccurate). Mercury had a powerful voice, to be sure, and the most compelling scenes are the recreations of the live concerts because of that voice. I didn't think Rami Malek was all the good in the role, other than during the concert scenes. His acting didn't do much for me. As well his face is narrower and more angular than Mercury's, so it made his overbite more pronounced than it really was -- and it was totally distracting.
