    Better the second time around. A lot of the problems I had are now just mere nitpicks. I still think the first half has issues but it wasn't as bland as I remember. It may suffer from using too many biopic tropes and clichés but I can look past that because the film has a lot heart, emotion and charm. I continue to be in awe of Rami Malek's fantastic performance and the whole Live Aid sequence has to be one of the most beautiful things I've seen all year!

It's a definite crowd-pleaser.

I also kept thinking about the film's themes and symbolism,…
