    Went to see the movie last night with wife and daughter and liked, but not impressed. I won't give anything away; but not close to Bohemian Rhapsody, as my wife said.

    That's too bad considering I didn't think BR was that good save for the final act.

    The previews for this movie just look terrible IMO. I wish it would be good, but it doesn't look like it will be.

    Special showing? I thought this movie opens on May 30 or May 31.

    I'd like to see this. EJ has a lot of back story that's vaguely familiar to me, I'd like to see how the movie presents it.

    Pretty much the enter middle section of that movie was just an excuse to play their greatest hits. I’m not complaining because I love Queen, but yeah there wasn’t much of a story there.

    BR was good if you know nothing about Queen. Took quite a few liberties in that movie. Made up a lot of drama between Freddie and the band that didn't exist.

    Showing in Des Moines last night at Jordan Creek. There is a reason why you let a director have control of the movie. Even my daughter said Eddie the Eagle! and she liked it.

    You could apply jamie Foxx's comment about "Walk the Line" to this movie.
    You are all being marketed.

    I see it's getting 90% on Rotten Tomatoes, so hopefully it will be good and I'm wrong.
