    If Brian may ( the guitarist) okays this film then every critic can eat their words.

    +biker 70 you don't have to diss a film just because you're not cool enough to make films.

    +Henry Wentworth that wasn't the intention at all. The film may Freddy look like a hero, and that was obviously the intent. Wow, people are dramatic. The criticism was actually the opposite. I am not sure if you saw the movie, but Roger Taylor was probably made out to look the most like an arsehole for no reason, probably more honest with him than they needed to be..

    Mike Myers was far from unrecognisable. As soon as he opened his mouth, he sounded like Shrek.

    I wanted him to yell at Freddie, "Get in my belly!" so bad.

  • Christopher Salsbury

     (Mar 12, 2019)

    No he did not. He sounded exactly like Stuart McKenzie in So I Married An Axe Murderer. "BECAUSE HE PUTS AN ADDICTIVE CHEMICAL IN HIS CHICKEN THAT MAKES YOU CRAVE IT FORTNIGHTLY SMARTASSSSSS!!!!!"

    wow they really did get the Brian May actor spot on...

  • Deutsch-kanadischer

     (Feb 22, 2019)

    Except that the actor who played Brian does not have a doctorate in Dr. Brian May in real life. LOL.

    "Freddy why dont you fix your teeth,?" " I am British, I dont want to stand out" .. lol

    "Who is GALILEO????"

  • DoomFinger511

     (Mar 5, 2019)

    +Robert Dodd I looked it up after reading this and you're right. The planet was know of for much longer. Maybe Galileo was the one to name it?

    they cannot possibly fit every single thing that happened in freddie’s life it’s a MOVIE not a documentary

    I don't understand the point of your comment? I don't think anyone disputes or argues this. It's just clearing up some inconsistencies and things that aren't true. It's not criticizing the movie.

  • Jesse Bond

     (Mar 12, 2019)

    Yes they can. It's been done before. There's a wild difference between cutting out certain events for the films run time, and making things up just to get from point A to B.

    Remember that scene when Ray foster said, “It’s not the song that teenagers will crank up the volume and bang their heads to.” I remembered watching Wayne’s World and seeing them bang their heads to bohemian rhapsody.

    You’re a bright one

  • Psycho Circus

     (Mar 1, 2019)

    That was never actually said considering that the character who said it in the film isn't real. And what film actually shows teens banging their heads to that song?... Could it be Wayne's World, the same actor who plays the character that said, "It's not a song that teenagers will crank up the volume and bang their heads too." So, do you see what they did there..?
