In 1975 Queen forever changed the music industry with the release of their most experimental and popular song “Bohemian Rhapsody.” The song blended many different genres of music including, rock, ballad, and opera.

“Bohemian Rhapsody” was a success and its success has only grown over the years due to its use in movies, such as 1992’s “Wayne’s World” and trailers such as  2016’s “Suicide Squad.”

The film “Bohemian Rhapsody” starts with the band’s humble beginnings and finishes strong with Queen’s epic and legendary 1985 Live Aid performance, focusing on the bands ups and downs mainly through the eyes of the band’s lead singer, Freddie Mercury, portrayed by Rami Malek.

“”Bohemian Rhapsody” is in a word… epic.”

The best part of “Bohemian Rhapsody” is that it shows you everything. From the top of Queen’s career to the bottom of it, and from the point-of-view of not only Freddie, but the entire band.  After seeing this movie you feel like you’ve personally met all of Queen’s members, and know their characters.

With an Oscar-worthy performance from Rami Malek, a great story, and an even better soundtrack, “Bohemian Rhapsody” is a film worth seeing.
