Bohemian Rhapsody

I wanted to watch Bohemian Rhapsody on its first day of showing but it opened in Philippine cinema while I was in Hong Kong vacationing with my family.

When we arrived home Riz told me it's such a great movie but I still could not find time to watch it, I waited for my sis-in-law, Ate Jo, but she's busy with her duties both at work and her grand kids.

Finally today John and I watched Bohemian Rhapsody in Century City Mall in Makati. Being a huge Queen fan, this film made my slow Monday really exciting! 

It's a killer performance by Malek! His lip sync is flawless! He was able to copy Freddie Mercury's movements down to a tee. One thing that annoyed us though is the exaggerated protrusion of his upper teeth. Freddie's teeth wasn't that protruded.

Quotable Qoutes from Bohemian Rhapsody:

"We’re family. We believe in each other. That’s everything." 

"Being human is a condition which requires an anesthetic."

"We’re all legends."

"Good thoughts, good words, good deeds." - Freddie Mercury 

"Fortune favors the bold." - Jim Beach

"You can’t get anywhere by pretending to be someone you’re not!" - Bomi Bulsara [to Freddie] 


This is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day,

The Casts are Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury / Farrokh Bulsara, lead vocalist of the rock band Queen. Lucy Boynton as Mary Austin, Mercury's girlfriend. Gwilym Lee as Brian May, Queen lead guitarist. Ben Hardy as Roger Taylor, Queen drummer. Joseph Mazzello as John Deacon, Queen bass guitarist.
