    The artistic license differences from reality we different than many biopics where certain details may not be known. I throughly enjoyed the movie, but several times found myself questioning the timing and sequence of things based on my historical recollections and having previously watched several Queen documentaries on YouTube.
    The hardest one for me to swallow was the timing of Mercury’s HIV/Aids diagnosis relative to LiveAid. Thanks for confirming.

    Shame the writers and Director had to mess with the truth. Cannot understand why they wouldn't just represent the band as their story was! Makes you wonder how they get away with it. Makes the movie less impressive now.

    So you just couldn't resist could you. Take a good movie although not very factual and rip it to shreds. I loved it even though I knew most of it was pure shit.

    Just so you guys know, the movie was not meant to be a documentary. It's a biopic, and some of the informantion was changed/made up for symbolic purposes and entertainment purposes. Some of the language used in this video (i.e. describing certain aspects of the film as "nonsensical" or there for "seemingly no reason") seems to imply that the team at WatchMojo was expecting a film that doesnt diverge from Queen's story at all, whether it be for storytelling purposes or not. Brian May and Roger Taylor both oversaw the film-making process and I'm sure that if they were unhappy with anything they'd speak up. Freddie's character was portrayed perfectly in the film, down to his very mannerisms. The movie was amazing, through and through.

    Is the actor who portrays Fred Mercury gay, and if not, how is that possible?

    The way Freddie met Mary Austin was also false. They were actually introduced by Brian May. But I still loved the movie :D

    And after Live Aid came the Highlander soundtrack thus the band stayed together until Freddie's death. After his death John Deacon pretty much decided to retire but came back three times through the 90s to join up for a couple tours including Freddie's Tribute tour. After that he was done.
