Freddie, Frost Nixon, Houston Queen discussed on Lights, Camera, Podcast


But like every point off because of how bland and paint by numbers. The fucking story is let me put it this way. I gave this movie a sixty five not not a horrible movie. This movie is just disappointing movie is not a good movie. But it's an entertaining movie. But but this movie I have come to realize this movie might be one of the better airplane movies of all time. Yeah. Description. Yeah. It's there's nothing too heavy in it. It's got good music. You come off the airplane. You're like damn I wanna listen to some Queen right now in Houston Queen the rest of your trip perfect airplane movie. But if you take, Freddie, Mercury out of this movie, you don't have interesting movie, you've taken Rami Malik out of it. You don't have a good movie. It's not a good movie to begin with. But you just don't have anything. And at least, Freddie, Mercury or his portrayal rahmael Malik portrayal made it interesting enough for me to be like, I'm entertained, even though part of my entertainment was just how fucking convoluted the shit was correct. Yeah. It's that's a really that might be the best way to put it on a plane for me, listen to music or watch a movie in you get the bus of both worlds both of them. Oh, Queen did this a new they did it. But I forgot about it. Get why fire when I get network again. I'm going to definitely put that. That list. Yeah. It's Ken, Jack. I'll I'll let you give your your thoughts. So true to sixty seven don't feel this isn't a movie, I wanna talk about just give it sort of a brief non spoiler summary. I think clean was a very hyperbolic out there in of on guard band like took a lot of risks and never played by the rules. And then this movie was just like a Wikipedia summary. That was incorrect. Like, yes, edited what Kapiti summary, and you like you read an edited Wikipedia page in the ten seconds. It wasn't change back. Exactly. That's sort of would've felt like and it would just wasn't captivating enough outside of Rami mal performance. And I don't think that there's no nothing to do with his performance. But I don't think it was powerful enough to carry the movie into being good and just is very much. Just a Brian made propaganda piece that was rage standing. That's what it was. It was trying to make the band they were more important than they probab-. Were and try not belittling, Freddie, mercury's legacy. But making him seem more like a component and less like the icon, which he was he is an absolute icon music history. And that is what I think a lot more people are interested in that this not what they showed. Yeah. I again, I hate you can't grade the movie for what it for what it could have been. Yeah. You can't greet it for what it could have been. You can't be like off ten points off for no soccer berry. That's not fair. There's still a movie there, and there's plenty of movies that I like that are true stories that have inaccuracies like miracle. I don't know if the miracle who do you play for thing half. But I know miracles a little off I know Argo the plate the plane chase scene at the end did not happen. There was tense near port. But that didn't happen frost Nixon the drunk cheeseburgers phone call that didn't happen. But like those ads drama to the overarching thing like Argo, the overarching story, the whole thing was that they escaped frost Nixon, the whole thing was that they had interview where he kinda revealed that you know, he was okay with what he did in the White House. You know that he was a crook, basically, and this one that's not the case like to change. One. They didn't break up. They did go on a break. Right. And maybe they were contentious. But like they made it seem like they hated each other. They recorded a fucking album they recorded music in between the time they took their break. Like, it's like they didn't talk for two years. That's a pretty big thing to do like if they were if he was still alive, and they did that and they were on agreement. Whatever dead..
