    Bohemian Rhapsody

    ★½

    I hate Queen’s music so i’m definitively not the target audience for this. What can I say, it was on HBO and I was bored. The music aside this was just another souless, sexless, sanitized biopic. The kind of film that wins a lot of Oscars for some reason. It’s poorly written and edited WAY to fast, probably to keep it around the 2 hour mark.

My only minor complaint are the inserts from an Allen Ginsberg poetry reading, which I felt didn't connect with the other…

    ★★★½

    Very cheap (you will never see a faker bat or a less convincing shipwreck than what this film offers) but surprisingly entertaining gothic. I actually liked it a lot. It's the kinda movie that now seems tailor made for smug jerks to make fun of, Mystery Science-style, mocking its faults (mainly the "home made" low budget feel, which only adds a naive charm in my book) and failing to realise its strenghts: a sense of decay and dread that feels…
