    The characters, themes and especially the shot lists for Waves and Euphoria are nearly identical. Are Trey Shults and Sam Levinson the same person?

    Holy crap, what a gruesome nightmare event. Riveting storytelling with great style, excellent cinematography, an otherworldly soundtrack and strong performances across the board. This docudrama deserves all the awards. Every single one.

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This film will certainly create new Queen fans, but why fabricate a plotline using a clichéd rockstar movie template when there's a true story that's uniquely interesting? Freddie Mercury isn't Dewey Cox. He didn't betray the band by going solo (Roger and Brian did solo projects years before Freddie did, and Roger assisted Freddie's solo effort); the band never broke up; Live Aid wasn't their swan song; etc. Freddie is a one-of-a-kind music icon with an R-rated journey. His legacy deserves more than this sanitized cookie-cutter PG-13 crowd-pleaser.
