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)
PLAYLIST ~ Music By Queen

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.

Las Vegas Shooting 2017

Another Infamous Shooting, The Media plays around the tube for answers, asking
‘When Will It Stop?’
Well, it won’t really. Whether it be some conspiracy terror tactic,
or a madman shooting, we live in a
Country where this sort of thing is becoming the norm now.
Why? It’s the culture. You may be the
‘Greatest Country In The World’ as you put it,
but your society needs serious help. Some of the other
countries around the world
are better governed where in their newspapers, you are reading about
normal levels of crime
in a big city, not some privileged weirdo with a massive gun collection that goes
to a
music festival for target practice. Where were the cops & secret agents the government employs to

protect us? Probably busy watching some normal colored person living his or her life,
scrutinizing everything,
desperately trying to criminalize the poor man or woman,
when there was someone ELSE obviously more dangerous
who was able to
FINANCE & ORGANIZE a domestic terror attack, but ‘The Powers That Be’ won’t call it that
or treat the crime like that,
BECAUSE they say, he was a privileged White Man who was simply ‘deranged.’

Mariachi Kid Sings Natl Anthem & Gets Racist Tweets

Hi ya’ll. When you view the below videos, you’ll get the basis of my blog today. So many subtle political changes have taken place in America in favor of Spanish immigrants which we have seen in the news. Some of them include free medical insurance & other government benefits, an illegal reporting a crime that happened to him/her without the threat of deportation, certain approved rights within Arizona including the right to express their culture in the classroom, American HR forms & other legal documents separating themselves from other classes of races as if they were a neutral race of their own & not of mixed blood, favors from Obama & so forth. The point is, Hispanics are looking for special treatment & have gotten it to some extent, but when it comes to the racist reality of those not in power (since majority rules) they are still generally perceived as cockroaches. Many of them are seen with suspicion & under attack in White neighborhoods but yet they wish to segregate themselves from the struggle with Blacks whom they are safest among. And now some Hispanics discriminate against Blacks & even attack them. Regarding the below videos, if it were an older person who had been out there prepared to handle it like Pitbull & others, then it wouldn’t have bothered me or the masses as much, but a really young boy who didn’t do or say a damn thing to deserve such a disgraceful attack on his person? This should show Hispanics (& the term is questionable too) that they are not socially acceptable amongst them & quit trying to identify with THEM even if you are light skinned because if you are Spanish & love being Spanish, you need to get rid of your Spanishness to fit in. If you are unwilling to lose your culture (which frightens them) then you have no business trying to look for social approval amongst their kind. Let these videos marinate in your mind for a while & consider a better strategy in recouping what your ancestors lost…..(on the more ethnic side of your breed I mean).
