Bohemian Rhapsody has earned more than $600m worldwide at the box office, making it the highest-grossing music biopic of all time.
With this success, the producers are now under pressure to make a sequel.

Maybe not a sequel, but there was a preview of an Elton John biopic before BR. So I think they planned for BR to do really well.

Finally saw this and Mrs. Gear and I really enjoyed it. Rami was nothing short of amazing, and the Live Aid performance gave me chills it was so well done. I’m glad they lip sync’d the original soundtrack from the concert and was amazed at how much of a match everything was from the actual show. Right down to the crowd participation at Wimbledon. I just wish we had gone to see it at the theater.

I heard somewhere that there are several band bio movies in the works but I predict they will fall short of Bohemian Rhapsody.

I finally got to see it last night.

I pumped up my sound system and enjoyed every minute of the movie.

It *should* win the Oscar for Best Picture.

I fear it will get snubbed because according to critics it wasn't "gay enough".

I thought they handled Mercury's homosexuality well in light of the era, it's not like today where it's shouted from the rooftops and celebrated. He also was famously private about it and did not talk much about his private life.

Very good...entertaining, well written and respectful, I don't think anyone got snubbed or, shorted. Admittedly, I was never a fan of the band and their music but, Mercury was a hell of an entertainer, had an awesome voice and was good at engaging their crowds. The LiveAid performance brought back a lot of memories...we stayed with family who was posted in Monterey at DLI, got up early to watch, struggled to stay away, dozed off.

I loved it.

Saw it tonight, great flick. Rami definitely deserved his Oscar! The music rocked. Took me down memory lane a bit as I remember seeing them in Harrisburg, PA in May of 1974. They were opening for Mott the Hoople. But you know who was on before Queen?........Aerosmith. Young bands just starting to grow up!

United has it on their movie chanel still so I watch it whenever on the plane. It’s one of those rare movies that I can watch over and over.

My wife and I watched it last night on HBO. Neither of us were Queen fans, but we heard many times that the movie was great—including in this thread. Great story, great acting.

Other than Mercury, the only other band member I knew by sight was (is) Brian May. With hair and makeup, the actor looked just like him. When they rolled credits at the end, it became apparent that the other two actors looked a whole lot like the men they portrayed too. I was blown away by the “musicianship” of the actors—you can ALWAYS see that an actor is faking the playing of an instrument, except this time

I went to see the movie not long after it came out. I wasn't excited about it, but was on the road and it was the only film playing in the time I had available, so I saw it.

I was impressed. Malik was incredible. It's not one I'd go see again, but was a good film.

I watched about the last 3/4 of it on HBO this past weekend. It was OK. They spent a surprising amount of time re-enacting the Live Aid concert. While well done and enjoyable, I think it must have come at the sacrifice depicting a lot of songwriting, recording and touring. It seemed like it went from the birth of We Will Rock You in about 1977 to Live Aid in 1985 with little acknowledgement of all the music created in between.

I saw it (uncut) on a flight not long ago. While I thought the characters were well done, in the end, I felt it was a typical "rock star excess" display.

Did you miss that montage that summed up their meteoric rise? It was a whole bunch of their songs from 77-84 or so along with all the locations they toured. I thought it was the best way they could have acknowledged this without the movie turning into a 6 hour documentary which wasn't the point of it.
