Queen, one of the most famous bands of all time, recently exploded even more with the new movie directed by Bryan Singer, Bohemian Rhapsody. Bohemian Rhapsody is one of the most iconic songs of all time, and when the movie dropped the whole world stopped for a moment because it was going to be extraordinary if it was a good film.

One of the most important factors to make a great movie is to have a good actor; and to interpret the role of Freddie Mercury, one of the most iconic artists of all time, it was going to be a hard job finding the right person. Bohemian Rhapsody had been trying to start filming for more than 8 years with the help of the current Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor, but finally one day they found the perfect guy for the role, Rami Malek. Malek was recently known for doing an interpretation of Elliot Anderson in the series Mr. Robot, and he decided to take a bigger step in his career and audition for the role of Freddie Mercury.  Malek does a great job interpreting Mercury especially at the end where the movie recreates the 1985 Live Aid Concert. A little mistake may be that they did his teeth a little too long, but in the rest, he is the star of the show. Malek can be compared to Bradley Cooper in the movie A Star Is Born, with his great performance. He gets so into the movie that you feel you are part of it.

A true fan of Queen needs to have seen the Live Aid Concert of 1985. Queen started there TOP times in the 1980’s when they were one of the most popular bands of the world, and exploded when they did the Live Aid Concert of 1985 in front of thousands of people and millions more watching in their tv. In the movie we can see they act out these part in the last scene and it was great to wrap up the movie this way. In that time Queen had heavy competition like U2, Madonna, MJ and Prince, but they still managed to pop out even more when they sang for 25 minutes in the Live Aid Concert with Freddy´s stage management.

These type of movies are not as common as before, as movies about music are going extinct; they  have been created less and less. Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star Is Born are two of the latest music movies of late 2018, they are both great with a lot of feeling and you can see yourself living in that time inside the Movie. A Star is Born is a movie that was released in October 5th in the USA and with Bohemian Rhapsody are the two recent hits in the movie theaters although Bohemian Rhapsody has a slight advantage.

Nowadays Queen is rising up to be one of the most heard band in the world because of there recent Movie Bohemian Rhapsody. Queen´s listeners and importance  have increased a lot in Spotify and in other websites because of this movie. It’s really hard to be one of the most heard in Spotify with competition such as J Balvin, Drake, Imagine Dragons and it takes a lot of effort to become part of the TOP 3 heard.

Bohemian Rhapsody is a great movie, it has a lot of details of the past and it perfectly describes how was Queen´s life. This movie is a ⅘ firstly because of Rami Malek and his interpretation of the most  iconic singer of all time and because the time and effort they spent doing it. So go now to your closest theater and watch it.
