  • 'Bohemian Rhapsody' (2018). Well, what do you know? I wasn't expecting to like this at all but it totally won me over with its easy charm. It's a tough gig adapting a life story when most of the main characters are still alive; tougher still when several of them are physically (and financially) involved in the production and keen to ensure they come out looking, well, at least halfway good. .
.
After an almost legendarily troubled production - a zillion different scripts and the abrupt departures of the original lead actor and also subsequently the director - it's frankly a miracle that it's as good as it is. The loss of Sacha Baron Cohen was almost certainly a blessing in disguise. His Freddie Mercury would have veered far too close to caricature. Rami Malek lacks the real Freddie's more imposing stature - there's a reminder in the live clip that plays over the end titles - but though significantly more delicate physically he really does lose himself in the spirit of the man. Best actor? Well I don't know about that, but he does a truly excellent job of illustrating the many paradoxes of such a complicated and conflicted personality, making him a sympathetic and likeable figure; more so perhaps than even the real Freddie was.

It's impossible to know how much of the film was shot by original director Bryan Singer, who was ousted mid-production, and how much by his stand-in Dexter Fletcher, but there is no discernible incongruity in any of the scenes. That bodes well for Fletcher's companion piece 'Rocket Man' - about Elton John of course - out later this year. In fact, the direction adds necessary style and heft to what is inevitably a slightly cartoonish script, which has to cram 15 years of detail into the space of a couple of hours, hitting all its marks in more or less the right places.

  • It's my second Christmas 😁😁😁 my first Christmas of the year was Mania 35. And I still have at least one more to come this year, in July, when Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is released! Happy 4/20 to everyone out there. I know technically here in the UK it's 20/4. But, the difference between the way Britain and America writes the date isn't important. It's just one of the small differences between two brilliant countries 👍👍 I don't get the online rivalry between us two. I see it on Facebook all the time, a Brit arguing with an American over who's country is the best. Who cares?? We are both awesome, let's leave it at that. We both have more important shit to worry about than which of the two countries (that are nowhere near each other) is better. We are both great and both lucky we were born in one of the two, there's a lot of worse places out there! I will say this to all my American friends on here: for the whole of Britain, I apologise tremendously for Piers Morgan. We are so sorry! We all know he's prick and we are sorry for unleashing that twat on you. And Simon Cowell as well I guess. That annoying bastard has ruined television! Anyway I'm rambling as usual, so yeah, happy 4/20. I normally do a pro-weed quote on this date. Last year it was the sexy beast Seth Rogen. This year, the smartest man who ever lived and the real Jesus: Bill Hicks: "why is marijuana against the law? It grows naturally upon our planet! Doesn't the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit... unnatural??" Thank you Bill! I hope you all have a lovely day. The sun is shining ✌✌

  • Overboard is an updated vision from the 1987 Overboard movie 🍿 with a fun twist. The new one has the male falling off the ship and the female pulling the prank. It’s pretty fun as Anna Farris always delivers. A lot of the movie is in subtitles so if you hate to read I would stay away! 3 out of 5 ⭐️

.
Kate is a single, working-class mother of three who's hired to clean a luxury yacht that belongs to Leonardo -- a selfish, spoiled and wealthy Mexican playboy. After unjustly firing Kate, Leonardo falls off the boat and wakes up with no memory of who he is. To get payback, Kate shows up at the hospital and convinces the confused amnesiac that they're married. As Leonardo tries to get used to manual labor and his new family, Kate starts to wonder how long she can keep fooling her fake husband.
Initial release: May 17, 2018 .
