Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) Queen Movie Review

Ne Cede Malis, Sed Contra Audientior
Do Not Yield To Misfortunes, But Go Forth More Boldly To Meet Them (Virgil)

Ofcourse somebody would want to make a film about the late great Freddie Mercury. I had mixed feelings over it. ALOT of the info in the movie and timeline is false. It’s a piece of fictional work designed to convey what they wanted you to know about him and the band and there experiences. Well, for something more factual, go look at the many documentaries and interviews online. For the film, they tried very hard to make the Egyptian actor Rami Malek, look, sound and act like him. The real Freddie was a physically bigger man and his striking actions and majestic persona are hard capture. I wasn’t entirely convinced of the performance and I don’t know why Rami Malek was chosen, I was more impressed at the actor’s work at the end of the film when he really came alive on stage as Freddie Mercury at the Live Aid concert. Yes, I expected it to win ALOT of awards, because of some elements in the film, even though critics like myself didn’t fancy it much. At the time when I saw the movie, I wasn’t really happy with it to go write a rave review, but as I continue to think about this man and his work, I have to say something. Prior to the film, the music of Queen for years were in movies, TV shows & commercials, and now AFTER the film, it’s still everywhere arguably as the band with the most hits heard in ads. Now this is a testament to their greatness, the mass commercial appeal as of late. There was a time in my development where Queen was one of the rock bands, I designated a moment of my life consistently listening to. The man was a musical genius. I felt the film focused too much on the gay shit. Some of the dialogue consisted of cheesy faggot comments that made Freddie looked like he was some Rupaul Drag person, when in reality, he carried himself more like a man. He was never out there in the public eye talking like that, seeming like that, or carrying himself like that. In reality, he was masculine, that was why when he died at age 45 in the early 1990s, it shocked people when we heard he lost his life due to complications with AIDs. I remember, it saddened me as a teenager back then the way the news of it was suddenly delivered over the airwaves. I missed him. He died too early. And now, so many years later in the current heyday of the flamboyant gay rights movement, they go and make a movie using HIM & his life to be a part of the gay agenda. If you study Queen, you’d know that Freddie himself when he lived, had no interest in being a point person for the gay movement or a Spokesperson on AIDs. He was a private man who was more mindful about HIS MUSIC. I’d think if you were going to do a movie about him, you’d more concentrate on his musical genius and things that really mattered to him. His lyrics hold philosophical content. He’s a Composer, right up there with Mozart, Bach, etc. Looking at the first half of the film was making me visibly upset with them focusing on homosexuality as if that was the main thing about his life, when other people around him at the time, can account for aspects of his personality being non-gay. In reality, heterosexuality was something he valued that the movie could not deny and had to show in some way since there was a woman he was romantically involved with, that he still loved till the end of his life and he left a great deal of his fortune to her even though she married and moved on. Something happened to Freddie as a young Indian boy born in Zanzibar/Tanzania when his family moved there to flee the Uprising in India. Then he developed as a person in England. We may never know the missing info, but there might be clues out there in cyberspace and alternative media. The movie could have been done better without the gay politics. Now we have content Millennials misunderstanding some things about his life and art as we go on as a society. He’s now a Gay Icon. Oh God! He was never seen as that before though. Nor decades before now, was he dug up and embraced as one of them, even at the time he lived. Some people say he was openly gay at the time, but there is evidence suggesting otherwise. Also, homosexuality (Buggery) was still seen as a crime in Britain in the 1960s. To many Americans & others around the globe, it was either a mental problem, or a vice you engaged in and some of us still think so. And for some, cross-dressing was a look you adopted or played around with, but it didn’t mean you were actually gay or lesbian, or something. And people eventually realized if you were or not. If he was privately exploring or finding himself because of some personal issue and I saw that, I wouldn’t make a film depicting that as the central theme of his life. It was more a gay movie, than an real biopic. There was so much more beyond that and what he never got to do in life. I don’t know how he himself would feel about this film they made about his life. I know though, he would have composed a better film about his story.

CREED II (Review)


Iuvenis Bellator – Young Warrior

I liked it. I held off from doing this story right after I saw the film because I wanted to see if it would win an Academy Award so I can include that too in my article, BUT, ‘The Oscars’ snubbed even nominating the movie. I
don’t know why. They deserved attention. I thought the storyline was well written, & had some of the 80s Rocky charm. The film however was appreciated elsewhere and won other awards. Now, some guys thought it was a girl movie, & that it didn’t live up to Creed I, but they’re forgetting the evolvement of The Rocky franchise. You need to show the softer side of a tough guy. This happened with The Rocky movies, and now Creed. Here you had a boxer and his girlfriend committing their relationship further, and then a tragedy happens. History sort of repeats itself when like his father, Apollo Creed, Adonis gets his ass kicked by Viktor Drago to near death, but the referee, who I bet admired his Father’s greatness, stopped the fight leaving Adonis still with his rights to the championship belt intact. When Ivan Drago left Russia with his son Viktor, the agenda was to place Russia back on the map in the boxing world, through his son defeating Rocky’s protégé since Rocky defeated Ivan decades ago in his own homeland. Ofcourse, Rocky was trying to get Adonis to avoid this murderous challenge, barely surviving the onslaught himself back in the day avenging his dead friend Apollo in the movie ‘Rocky IV’, but Adonis could not shun destiny. And so we see a failed Adonis, eventually getting the help he needed from his father-like Coach, Rocky, training out there in God knows where, to gain the strength & skill he needed to withstand Viktor, because his dad trained him to be a killer in the ring. Also, he has a very injured casualty, his daughter, from womb trauma, was born deaf when her mom was in the arena watching in great pain as Adonis endured a vicious beat down by Viktor in the first fight. So we’re dealing with the need to win for vengeance & being the greater fighter. So, yeah, he won the second time around with even the opposing Fight Promoter himself applauding Creed on his victory. It was a great American moment as Russia lost again & Creed also winning the applause & respect of many of the Russians in the crowd. Viktor didn’t expect it, saved by his father telling them to stop the fight. He later consoled his son. At the end of the movie, they still train. What I especially loved towards the end, was Adonis going over to his fathers grave transmitting thoughts as he looked down at it with the famous signature stare of his dad, Apollo Creed.

Farewell George Bush, Sr (41st American President) & First Lady Barbara Bush

Since First Lady Barbara Bush passed away April 17th 2018, it was expected to see her beloved husband pass soon after. Now deceased (Nov 30th 2018), let’s look back and honor former United States of America, President 41, George Herbert Walker Bush on this year’s President’s Day. I miss him. As I watched all the televised funeral ceremonies with them shopping his body around to all the significant sites & the American band themes going, I was slightly thrown back in time for a few days remembering what a presidency was like. Bush Senior was fully in power when I was in high school about 27 years ago, with his reign ending in 1993, in my Junior year. He was handsome from his youth, good student, clean-cut, wholesome values, All-American, ivy league educated, nice military guy, CIA material, well-spoken, prudent, carried himself well as President, & I miss those days. For a one-term President, he felt more like a two-term. He kept the Oval Office DIGNIFIED!!! No reports about lewd sexist male remarks or actions, no treason allegations, no funding fraud, & especially no Nigrish White Trash behavior as we openly see and hear about with our current #45, President Donald J. Trump. You have to understand, I was reminiscing throughout the Bush footage with all the memorable stories. Many of the world leaders & political operatives were there to remember this man. Now look at our Oval Office. It began turning to shit when Bill Clinton won, with the Monica Lewinsky scandal still at play to this day on the airwaves, but Clinton managed to still keep the office semi-stable with some notable accomplishments. Then the country was graced again with ANOTHER George Bush, #43. He was ridiculed for being dumb, & punitive to critics, BUT the man held the country together still in a dignified way. AND THEN…….. There was ‘Black Panther’ Mr. Barack Obama himself, #44. His energy was cool, positive, powerful, & unifying despite what the haters have to say. He was a political Rock Star. The Bush funeral highlighted the end of an era for real. It saddened me. Even in death, The World was able to see that George H. W. Bush was able to powerfully & gracefully get a room filled with people who cared at the funeral & in our homes across the world to come together and reflect on politics and strategize hope for the future.

Aquaman 2018 (Review/Spoiler)

Symbolically released in the I Winter Solstice 12/21/2018, I could not help looking at the Movie Aquaman, without thinking about the Marvel Comics character, The Sub-Mariner (Namor Mckenzie), known by his catch phrase, ‘Imperius Rex’ Latin for Powerful King/Imperial Ruler. He was FIRST in the comic universe in 1938 & Aquaman came about in 1941, with a very similar storyline to Sub-Mariner’s. I like them both, as in a way, they are suppose to be the same guy, BUT if I had to choose one universe, I’d go with Namor, not Arthur. Contrary to the disrespect from comedian & TV night show host, Jimmy Kimmel, using his platform to insult Sub-Mariner, Namor is indeed MORE significant, technically being more powerful than Aquaman, had he bothered to do the research. Kimmel’s only right about one thing, Sub-Mariner apparently have been forgotten about for Marvel films.

Now the Movie, first of all, Jason Mamoa was believable in the part. Long before his casting for something like this, I always thought he would be a good pick back in the day for TV movies or shows like ‘Hercules’,
& ‘Xena’, playing somebody significant & now looky here…….The only thing wrong at times were the corny one-liners in the script. I always liked Aquaman and am glad somebody thought enough of him too to give
the guy a complete movie. Aside from Superman, Batman, & Wonder Woman, he was one of a few DC heroes I found intriguing & mighty growing up viewing ‘The Super Friends’ animation series in all its variations, just like the Marvel Comics. Now, DC Comics was FIRST, but Stan Lee’s Marvel Universe took over the medium so people followed after them. They have way more going on, BUT, I’m proud of DC Comics for hanging in there over the decades with all the Superman & Batman stuff in film & on TV, with the recent millennial Wonder Woman film
& now this latest, Aquaman. The Aquarian make-up/costumes for all the characters were done well. And thecharming storyline was like being led into a nice child-like lullaby as we watch Arthur also experiencing it as he
grows up later realizing it all to be true & his destiny is well within grasp.

Now,….I like villains too. Let’s get that started. I loved the way Black Manta looked in the film, the mystery & power of his presence. I liked him ALOT in the cartoons too & felt that this time around in the film’s debut, he should have been a bit more successful against Aquaman if he’s supposed to be his arch-nemesis. You can’t just prevail slapping him around like that. There are many times in the DC World, Black Manta outsmarts The Semi-Atlantean, getting him in a bind & someone from The Super Powers Team has to rescue him. So I hope if there are sequels to the film, we see that.

And now…… the pure-bred Atlantean heir to the throne, our villain, Ocean Master, ….. what can I say. He had a point. You should want to keep things correct. You just knew how things were going to go with the good wins over evil stuff. That guy was doing the right thing as he was entitled to, but as always, some one, or force works against it. I don’t think he was really a bad guy, and in all reality, given his rights & power should have won & had everyone supporting him, BUT as fate would have it, a half-breed dwelling on The Surface, must be The King & he is quietly being helped by Vulko, who’s character was played superbly well by Veteran actor Willem Dafoe . Yes, so Ocean Master beats Aquaman the first time in the challenge as expected, but Aquaman’s comeback in the end was impressive. And you could see it was destiny to be The Ruler with the Mighty Trident and all.

My only fault with the film was not enough colored Atlanteans in the sea, as that historically & culturally would have made more sense since they’re messing with mythology too. I’d Iike to see in the future some reference to The God Poseidon/Neptune. I mean, really. The movie for me, touched a piece of the pagan past that some of us are so familiar with that it’s not just a film, but a harbinger for what to expect.

OJ Simpson Lost Interview Confession (Aired March 2018)

What is one of the most memorable moments that stands out in 2018. Well…………………….’If I did it, this is how I would do it’ O.J said in reference to a book he wrote back in September 2007 with such title based on his ‘fiction’ of committing the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson & her friend Ron Goldman. Around that time too, Trump was NOT president, he was still doing ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ when OJ was marketing his book & Trump wanted him on the show in 2008 & public outcry squashed that. Since then, we don’t expect to hear any new shocking info about a dead story concerning OJ, UNTIL…….channel 7 aired a 2016 special in favor of The Goldman Family showing OJ’s guilt while he was being interviewed & interrogated by police etc. It was a convincing piece because if you were on team OJ, it made you doubt his innocence, but you also got to see the pain of the Goldman’s & the hate as some of the commentaries against OJ was racial. He however, kept his responses to script with nonchalant
gestures that showed callous indifference. So as time went on, we don’t expect to see anymore of this. I mean what more can you milk out of it.
WELL… as it turns out, HE DID IT, atleast in the latest version of things. What you can get out of it is that somewhere over the many years guilt got a hold of him to be still thinking & talking about it with such anger. They had already broke up, nothing further should have come from them, but yet the murder happened. Many have speculated that the murder may have been related to drug activity because of drug use with Faye Resnick over unpaid drugs, or a homeless person was responsible for randomly targeting them, & so forth. One detective went as far as to say it was OJ’s deranged son, Jason Simpson was responsible & OJ was just covering up the murder to protect him. That theory still holds water when you wonder who the ‘other guy’ OJ says he was with. Some thought it was Al Cowlings, but he was ruled out as a suspect by police. Some people still believe that the way the crime scene looked, there were 2 people involved. If OJ had an alter-ego as some think he’s referring to in the video, then I guess IT got out to make the crime scene seem like 2 people were there, but whoever the mystery person it, still remains at large. The theory that it could be his son Jason, has not been disproven, especially when we know he was upset with Nicole for cancelling dinner reservations in favor of Ron Goldman’s restaurant. OJ’s son was very close to Nicole & some say perhaps too close. Others have suggested that Nicole was ‘too loose’. Well, if that were so, her murder should never had happened, just move on, leave her alone. Instead of looking to justify the killing, it would make more sense to disprove OJ as the killer, as some still believe he is innocent despite his hypothetical admission, BUT we have no further clues to date other than speculations.

The Cosby Thing…….

He shouldn’t have done it! I don’t believe every last accusation is true, but there is something to it. The whole thing is odd though. While all this was going on, I held off from formerly posting on this until the
legal process was over & see the aftermath. I had my opinions about the case of course, I felt back then that since they (The Establishment) were holding on to it still, they wanted him done! What happened here (Real Talk), is that Bill Cosby got off his own track. Let’s go way back…….this guy was known in the 60s for his educational lectures on TV, THAT is what I remember him for the most. The information, the teaching is what I feel “THEY” had to get him for. You could smoke screen it with the conspiracy theories thinking he was politically taken out for wanting to own a major TV network, NBC, but really? Okay, if he was just a chuck full of fun with Fat Albert, The Cosby Family, Jello Pudding & stuff, it wouldn’t be a threat “allowing” him to own a network, BUT, if you are spiritually, racially, politically or culturally CONSCIOUS, maybe THAT is the real reason why “THEY” don’t want you shaking up the status quo using “THEIR” global resource. Where Bill Cosby went wrong was allowing himself to be too seduced by the Hollywood lifestyle that it royally messed him up. You can’t be out there with an agenda like that, then fall back & let The System get you. If you look at some of these accusations, you might conclude that it was a saved plot from the beginning. You know, to get this guy later on in his career, they just set up some people along the way & quietly kept the evidence. Well, what about others, especially the non-Black ones who lived the same lifestyle? These accusations only seem to come out at critical times when the actor is about to do something. No real court case involved, no cross-examinations, oh wait, to make it happen legally, they found the one old case file to go back on a legally binding word, unseal it, & use one statement they can twist to mean something. So an entire legal process played a role in Hollywood manipulation, why even the court system can be pimped to serve your purpose. What could his lawyers do? The court won’t take a logical argument. If you say you were raped by Cosby, why go back to him & take his money? Why are people claiming to have seen you with him after that date, hanging out in public, voluntarily going to his home, & you were supposedly his crime victim? Many of these accusations were debunked & the one case which did him in with accuser Andrea Constand was questionable too. If it was an old case many years before & she was paid off with certain info in the case sealed, why re-open it? It was already judged from that time when the case was fresh, but if you want to bury someone, you overlook a person’s civic legal rights in favor of prejudice & hate & make-up something you hope another bigoted party would fall for. AND WAIT FOR IT, since they got him on the charges now, he’s locked away…..end of story, right? Nah! Some new girl has popped up claiming when she was about 15 at the Playboy mansion, she got drunk after playing some pinball game with him there and he took her upstairs and raped her. Well that’s a busy place, what was she doing with a grown ass man like that at the time. The young innocent story makes no sense in a place like that. Why wasn’t she a rape victim before that situation since she seemed so naïve. Shouldn’t she have come out before the initial conviction with all the other women? The argument many of these women make is that he was so powerful at the time that no one would believe them. WOW! But they’ll believe you now? At no time in American history if you were a White female claiming a Black man raped you, your case would not be heard & taken seriously on flimsy evidence. It’s the same racial ugliness happening in Today’s time & I blame any of the so called ‘feminist’ Black females who partook in it for the sake of a pat on the head by Hollywood to help bring down this guy. What I blame him for was straying too far off track from his original purpose.  He clearly wanted to teach his people & there is so much more to say &  doing it on a major basic TV network with the right positive programing would have helped. I guess why THEY need this latest accuser coming out NOW after the fact as their last wild card to bury him, is because Cosby’s lawyers may have found some way to appeal the case in his favor or some other legal maneuvering to get him out. So we have more to see. It shows weakness on THEIR part fucking with him like that because Today’s Millennials don’t KNOW him like that & all they did was re-awaken interest into his past.
