Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody ★★

A chronology nerd’s nightmare.

I can forgive it pulling 'Freddie tells the rest of the band he has AIDS just before Live Aid' out of its arse for dramatic purposes but a scene set in 1980 with short haired Freddie walking in on the rest of the band writing 'We Will Rock You', in what I assume are meant to be 'The Game' sessions? They're playing 'Fat Bottomed Girls' on tour before recording 'Bohemian Rhapsody' are they? And you expect to tug my heartstrings with the Live Aid climax when my mind is still roiling at these despicable factual errors, do you?

Having said that I did appreciate the portrayal of John Deacon as some kind of confident wisecracking everyman.
