"Of covert 19 not to have any reaction any of the sights and sounds the funny hats, the balloons, the streamers. The pyrotechnics that can have all of that is out because we're in this new virtual world, so it's really going to be on the speakers to keep to these tighter timeframes. Deliver those messages is as quickly as they can and is compelling a fashion as they can, But frankly, no one really knows what to expect, because it's never happened before. All right. The Democratic National Convention tonight Over Zoom was reclined from ABC News. I don't know what you've been to a few of these things. I've never been to a convention. I know. In all honesty, I really wouldn't want to go to one. I'm not interested in these conventions don't like watching them. I don't think they serve much of a purpose. It's just It's just what it is. You're you're rewarding the states and the muckety mucks in the states. It's a lot of what it is, and there's a lot of old style stuff that goes with it. That's rather unique about. You know the voting in the roll call and stuff like that, But I mean, I'll see. I want to see the vice presidential speeches in the president's speech or the person running for president. I'll watch that. But I'm not going to watch hours and hours of starting around, Joe. Other way, Joe. You're looking at the wall. Turn around. Nobody's there. I don't know what it's gonna look like tonight. Mike Pence. They're gonna have to go and put a little mirror in front of his nose. Make sure still alive. Why doesn't he blink eyes? Any interesting? Here's the Here's the way I compare it. What? When you don't have any of this That's right. It's not taking place anywhere. No, it's it's like it's all over. You know, it's just they're saying it's Milwaukee because that's where the whole thing was just like Even with the Republicans, they're certain business things that have to happen. They're going to just now be behind closed doors, But and this is the way I described as that is Without the convention. There would be no Barack Obama. He delivered that speech to the convention. That was beyond epic. You're talking about the Kerry? Yeah, the carry the invention. Where there wasn't a Red America. There wasn't a Blue America without that. If he's delivering it tonight in a room by himself, Nobody cares. Here's the other thing. Interesting. The crowd. Is is so much a part of what goes on. And I say that like The greatest 20 minutes of music history is Queen Live Aid period case closed. Without the crowd. It's just guys goofing around. You need the energy how you're going to lose that. Even when watching it from from television, and you see the crowd like that night that remember when he got the nomination, Obama and he's like, Yes, we can and the crowd it My life is going crazy, so you can feel that you're not going to feel that there's not going to be that we know we get that with Trump because we've seen it 1000 times. But there's not going to be any of that. And so does Joe Biden because Joe Bynes not get excited crowd necessarily Joe's getting called out right now by a lot of people in the media saying, all right, well, we know you've got this now. It's time for you to actually come talk to some of us. It's time for you to Teo emerge as you call them hiding Biden. And come out and start giving speeches but also start talking to start answering questions. And we'll see if that, but I don't know if it if it helps, I think The cove. It helps Joe. I mean, that should have been his running mate. Covert is certainly help Joe Biden. I saw something where Over 60% of Americans think Trump has botched the cove it pandemic. But have you seen the latest CNN poll I would like to hear about is now three points. Nationally, you have seen 10 points have seen three points. You'll see several of them. But they're all moving a little bit closer because at the end of the day, both of these guys will snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. They'll go over they go. I'm gonna win and they fumble the ball. I think that the Democrats are going to be boring. I think that Trump is gonna have something pretty good. You got it. If it's entertainment value, Trump's gonna win. Trump does television. He knows exactly what big the tea the whole nine yards. I'm telling you guys right now he's looking over and saying himself. I see the Washington Monument. If we could just put something across and looked like a t to be fantastical fire, That's well, That's how his mind works totally. And it's not gonna be boring. No, he's a showman. He's a showman. And that's the he is 80 Barnum in the modern era. I think you're gonna like is Michelle Obama going going to give? Well, she's giving. She's already given it she taped up like a week ago before Harris became the vice presidential candidate. Don't you redo it? You would think you would think so. It's canned. And some people don't like that. When they know all way was taped three weeks ago. I think that's that's not what you think of general like you couldn't couldn't do a lot. You could do well don't live. I don't know. Maybe no one's doing it live in your heart is alive. I'll do all this. I think Bernie, you'll go live tonight. You know, Birdie said something interesting over the weekend. My supporters they're not enthusiastic about Joe. I go that well, they're not in three sets about Trump, even though but A lot of his supporters want chaos. Right. If it's not, they don't want Biden. They would rather have trump and chaos. Then the same old same We'll see what happens on we'll give you coverage starting at six o'clock into. Ah, you know, seven or eight o'clock here on our so we're on it. Make sure you listening. That's how we roll. That's how we roll coming up. Next Give a thon for Phoenix Childrens. This is something we're going to do all week long. It's going to be a little different this year, but we're going to give you a story of hope..

You're hurt because it I heard it takes liberties with the story in what night are totally Yeah, but that doesn't mean that a song did you know that going into it? It's like it's a dramatised version of the Queen's story. I mean, it completely completely got me about the first time I saw it. I'm watching it and let me veracity or the actual moments, the movie and I'm watching it. And I'm listening to the story and I am in tears. I mean, just the idea that you know this guy. Knows he's going to die, and he tells the band and he goes out and he gives the performance of his life knowing it's going to be the last and you're like And then I'm laying there and I'm like Wait. I live for this stuff. That's not the way it happened. Exactly. You don't. Yeah, I never did that. There was a queen, You know they didn't get together for that. They were already just came off a tour Greatest hits album. Hey, I didn't know you had a zo the following year, but that would be you know, dramatic. Then you will do exactly what the hell I know. Rolling Stone had a really good article that was like this is what really happened. This is what they took liberties with. Remember, you know what did you ever see the side by side concert from the movie First I've seen that. It's incredibly identical. Yeah, that was a great job. That's fantastic. Right?

Because that was the shit's it sounded terrible rich and we're never ever play another show without our guy because especially she wants again with Queen Music if you have some listen God bless the House guys but a lot of them really. Don't give a shit. Yeah and there's so much in your in your in your in your show I have. I have a section underwriter that it's just notes for the sound guy literally like please rebus volumes on the MICS to be exactly in this order and you need to make sure that during be songs that the mics are done in this order and like at every show is of course they do it now. A No training sound guy and Matt's amazing because he it not only is great running front of House but he's also producer and he's guitar player a drummer and he basically plays every instrument. He's produced several albums on his own. He also savings things and he's probably the sweetest guy you'll ever meet so but you have to have that even if it costs a little bit extra with another plane ticket or whatever it's worth it get because if you don't come out of it sounding great eight people notice that even if they're not musicians they notice that they just didn't sound the vocals were good or do sludge muddy. And you know you gotTa have. Specialists are playing bigger places. Yeah absolutely and even even like if we play everything perfectly and the sounds not right it. There's nothing we can do that. The sound is perfect. And you don't play it perfectly but people still dig. It sounds better than that's worth two right last question For you actually. Two questions has ever been on a cruise before I have not. Yes yes yes you did you play on the cruise. I played on the Monster Cruise. Oh Cool with Paradise Kitty actually. Oh Wow actually played and shoot to thrill to the from. Yeah because you're from North Carolina's and I very first band. I was ever in shoot to thrill. You're kidding me. We were you playing that ace. Nice well you'd never mentioned that it was hard being ACDC band. No face was pretty easy for that. Walk in with drums though. Yeah it was. It wasn't like a serious is the killer. Queens are so it was more just like everyone is just kind of having fun. You know what I mean so now I have I incense I moved away from North Carolina. Don't really it was the same girl she just asked. What was her name door call? I don't recall. I don't think they've had The same people. Since I moved North Carolina Gotcha Gotcha Gotcha would you have been on a cruise. And you haven't been anchors. You guys have so much fun. I have experience stain GonNa have so much fun. You guys going to get over huge and then you can have some drinks are just. There's so much stuff to do. It's just it's a nonstop party so we're looking forward Ford having you Last question for you. What is your favorite song to play? And what's the hardest song to play. Hey sorry family I think the most fun one for me is maybe keep yourself alive now on so crazy to like the format format of that song is all over the place so that's just beginning ever to got to really nail that beginning we've got got it got it locked down factors that one a lot and what's the hardest to play hardest to play. This is actually the sound stupid because this is not a hard song but cool cat. I get so bored during that Like fall asleep. It'd be like Oh my God. Where are we go? Pay attention to those ones right. And they're hard. It's easier for me to focus because then I'm like I'm doing I'm like on it but when it's just like doing like same two chords for a long time just like I really like you're my best friend because I love the club. It's fun to play cloudy. Like the club sound Good old fashioned fun. I think hardest also kind of mental as Bohemian rhapsody. Just because you have to get mentally I'll be like shut. My part of my brain is is like thinking about other things like you can only think about getting this much like me like stop that right but yeah that's probably so the funnest song to perform crazy little thing called love. It's such A. It's a dance long. Everybody gets like way into it right away. We always win the audience over at that point. If they're not sure they WANNA dance. The I'm not song comes on. They're like okay. The hardest thing for me is keep yourself alive because that one has so many words. Don't repeat in the way so you'd expect them to like anytime. He starts to repeat lyric. I'm like Oh here we go. He changes one word right on that stuff. Yeah it's so fast I always feel like I'm practically rapping. I mean stone. Cold crazy is basically a rap and it's way easier attribute like was it called metal allegiance last year. NAM and we did stone cold crazy. And that's just single. James had filled. It's not hard at all. I love the METALLICA version. We're trying to convince her. Emmer to play the METALLICA on it. Because I like the stops that they have and because ever seen Freddie Mercury Tribute concert from ninety two Wimbley stadium. Did you watch extreme. Go Watch the do amazing about a twenty minute medley of Queen. And it's really really good because that Gary is Great Nuno's just to. I love noon off to check that out extreme Freddie Mercury tribute and it'll blow your mind. It's really really good. I just watched it the other day for first time in a few years. It's like they just really nailed. They're the closest Banda Queen on that whole tribute stage. It's worth checking like I have to have seen it because I've watched that whole thing as much as they do. They re radio goggles in there in another movies the dust and just but human rhapsody and keeps up alive and another but it just the way they put together notes from. We don't know who you are. You only get thirty minutes something like thirty. We did the best time in twenty minutes still say to this day that Queen live aid is the best Gig of all time yes.

"It's what I call a cough drop movie like when you're totally ill, and you have to flu and you try to take a cough drop to soothe the pain. And that's exactly what this movie is the cough drop movie. Yeah. And I think black klansman is a sort of rip off the band aid. Where it's not, you know. Yes. Yes. You know, twenty Scott your colleague, Brooke Barnes, not so many days ago had a piece about who might win Beck's picture picture and talk to twenty Oscar insiders about this one of the things that this story did and it's not the first time. But it did it rather pungency. I thought was talked about the extent to which a lot of these votes are political votes. A lot of these votes. Are I want to affirm in motion a lot of these votes are cat people acknowledged they hadn't seen the films. They wanted to vote for people say, well, I can't vote for Romo because a net flicks. I can't I don't want to do something for Black Panther. Because it's Disney like this seemed to me like as as as cynical as we all think things are this seemed to me to say, yeah. No, it's it's that cynical. I mean, it's Hollywood Jake. And but it's a reminder that the academy is not a group of movie fans or even movie critics, it's it's an independent body. And it's people who have an investment in the industry, and in an idea of what they wanna represent and what they wanna show about the industry and also have friends. And enemies involved in all of the films that are that are that are under consideration. And so are voting based on their personal connections based on their on their biases on their prejudices, and notoriously don't always watch all of the movies, or even the entire movie that they that they that they you know, put in on the finalists even among the finalists. And this is something to that that I think, you know, Sean, and I and and people in our profession, we take we take offense of this. Because it's, you know, our job is to watch the whole movie, and to only judge movies that we've actually seen and you know, when when it turns out that the the the the high ranking professionals in the industry aren't doing even that much due diligence. Yes, it is perhaps caused for a little since. All right. We got we got to wrap up Shaun Edwards. I want you almost a yes. No. Last question is vice on there because the academy wants to take a slap at the Bush years and Republican party or is it not going to win because they? That the movie was sour, and they didn't like it. It's not going to win because it was too SNL like. It's like a two hour SNL skit. Well, let's say the sharpest thing about it. Struck me was the one point that was most like an SNL skip. But the main reason for that you've been listening to Shaun Edwards. Chrome critic and co founder of the African American film critics association. Thanks so much, Sean. Thank you very much. And Tony Scott chief film critic of the New York Times pleasure to have you back. My pleasure as we're going to go out with a little ditty here, you might recognize him by Diddy. I mean rock anthem it's the Oscar nominated best picture bohemian rhapsody, featuring previously unreleased audio recording from queens Live Aid performance in nineteen eighty five in a moment..

"This episode of based on a true story was written and produced by me, Dan lab, there's so much more to Freddie, mercury's life that we couldn't hope to cover. We didn't talk a lot about Jim Hutton or some of freddy's other relationships at the movie never even mentioned while Valentin or Winfried Kirsch burger to learn more about Freddie, mercury's life. I'd recommend starting with the biography called mercury an intimate biography of Freddie, Mercury by Leslie Ann Jones, including linked to that book more books and plenty of resources for you to dive even deeper into the life of Freddie, Mercury over at based on a true story podcast dot com. Okay. Now, it's time for the answer to our two truths and a lie game from the beginning of the episode as a refresher here are the two truth and one light number one, Freddie. Mercury was not as birthing number two, Freddie. Mercury. Never married Mary Austin, number three queens Live Aid, performance was Freddie's. I after being diagnosed with aids. Did you find out which one is the lie, Freddie, mercury's birth? Name was for Rick bowl, Sarah. So that means number one is true. And even though he proposed to Marian was quoted as considering her like his common law wife, the two were never officially married. So that means the lie is number three as we learned Freddie, wasn't diagnosed with aids until two years after the Live Aid performance. So that would be in nineteen eighty seven with the performance in nineteen eighty five. That brings this to an end of this episode if you're based on true story producer. I look forward to chatting with you again next Monday, when we'll learn about some of the history behind the monster movie, cong- skull island.

"For their break-up. We see Freddie at home in his bedroom on TV. We hear a news report saying that every day to more men here. The grim news that they have aids worst yet. There is no cure. In the next shot. Freddie is at the hospital. It's a very empty hospital. He's in a hat and song Lassus in the doctor's office. The doctor says do you understand the way we go from here is that treatments are available, but they're not very effective, Freddie. After this while the band is practicing for their big Live Aid performance. I voice is straining the band decides to take a break and go grab a drink. Freddie, interrupts them before you leave. I have a second. It's at this moment that Freddie tells the band he has aids, but he insists that the band shouldn't feel sorry for him. I don't have time to be there victim or their aides poster boy or cautionary tale. I'm going to be what I was born to be he says. That's not how it happened. It is true that Freddie Mercury had aids. And while he would have gone to a doctor to get diagnosed in truth. He wasn't diagnosed until nineteen eighty seven that's two full years after the Live Aid concert. Although it is worth pointing out that Freddie, didn't let his aids diagnosis slow him down. Remember that party? I mentioned with seven hundred guests three hundred fifty bottles of champagne and fireworks that you could see from one hundred miles away that took place just a few months after he was diagnosed with aids that in the movie, we see a masterful recreation of queen's performance during live eight the filmmakers did a great job recreating this. And even though there's not a lot to compare with history here, which is kind of enjoy the music. I did wanna point out that they even got the settlers, correct? The set list for queen's performance at Live Aid was just like the movie shows the first half of bohemian rhapsody started followed by radio Gaga, then there was the. A O improv bit. Yup. That happened. Next was hammered to fall after that was crazy little thing called love. Then they played the first verse and chorus of we will rock you. And finally, we are the champions at the very end of the show. We don't really see this in the movie, but Brian Mae, and Freddie Taylor came out on stage to do an acoustic version of is this the world we created. All in all queens performance, stole the show. You can find versions of the show on YouTube just a search for Queen Live Aid. And of course out at a link to that in the show notes over at based on a true story podcast dot com. At the very end of the movie, there's some taxed on screen to wrap up the story after Live Aid. So let's do a quick fact check on these it starts by saying that, Freddie. Mercury died of aids related new ammonia on the twenty fourth of November nineteen Ninety-one. That's true. Freddie. Mercury. Was diagnosed with aids in April of nineteen eighty seven according to an interview on the Sacramento bee newspaper with Brian May nineteen ninety three the band was informed of Freddie's diagnosis just a short time before he died, so years later, Freddie, was like the movie shows only forty five years old when he passed the next bit of text explains that Freddie, and Jim enjoyed a loving relationship for the rest of his life while he and Mary Austin remained lifelong friends, that's true too. We haven't talked too much about Jim Hutton. But he and Freddie became an item in one thousand nine hundred five they remained together until Freddie passed in ninety one as for Mary, she in, Freddie, always. Loved each other. I don't think anyone could deny that. They just missed identified. What that love meant during the early part of their relationship once they separated there was still a bond there that never really faltered. They were good friends for life. The next piece of taxed says that Freddie was cremated in the tradition of his family's Zoroastrian faith. Again. That's true. Thirty passed away is home on November twenty fourth nineteen Ninety-one three days later as rusty in priest conducted the funeral service at the west London crematorium. It was a closed service that only included thirty five of his close friends one of which was Elton John his family and the other band members. The next bit of text says that two weeks after Freddie died. He mean rhapsody was re released and reached number one. Again, a full sixteen years after its initial release. That's mostly true. Although according to my research, I can only find that the song made it as high as number two on the billboard music charts. And also wasn't two weeks to months still impressive. But he Mun rhapsody was first released in nineteen seventy five on the album a night at the opera, then in January of nineteen ninety two. It was re released along with the song. The show must go on in honor of Freddie, all the proceeds for that released. Single went to the Magic Johnson foundation for aids research, the final bit of text says that in nineteen Ninety-two Queen and Jim beach established the mercury Phoenix trust in Freddie's honor dedicated to fighting age worldwide. That's true too. According to the mercury Phoenix trust website since its inception. The trust has given away over fifteen. Million dollars in Freddie's name to over seven hundred projects in ongoing battle to fight aids. And HIV. End it is ongoing. The trust is still very active today. And while I'm not associated with trust at all. In the research. I've done for this episode. It does seem like they're doing some great work. You can learn more about their mission and help them fight aids. In honor of Freddie, mercury's memory over at mercury Phoenix. Trust dot com. This

"Yeah. Today's episode of based on a true story. We're going to compare history with the two thousand eighteen film bohemian rhapsody written by darkest hours writer, Anthony mccartan and directed by Valkyries director, Bryan singer bohemian rhapsody was mired in controversy before it was even released at the end of last year. But not for the reason, you might think it started in December of two thousand seventeen while the film had only three weeks of filming left. That's when reports arose from set that the movie's director Bryan singer was feuding with other members of the crew and would regularly disappear from the production for days on end. He was fired by Twentieth Century, Fox, the same months the report came out. But not for the reason, you might think three days after it was out that singer was fired by FOX a man named Cesar Sanchez. Guzman came forward with Alec. Nations that singer had raped him back in two thousand three when Sanchez. Guzman was just seventeen years old the next day deadline Hollywood released an interview with singers boyfriend Brett Tyler SCO pack in the interview SCO pick explained what it was like to come to Hollywood at eighteen years old hook up with singer by chance and begin a life with the popular director to sum it up. It was plenty of sex drugs and more drugs and sex alcohol, and as the article explains, quote an ever revolving cast of multiple participants and quote. With the light cast on singer Twentieth Century, Fox claimed they didn't know any of this. They had after all fired him before any of it was reported. So maybe it was for the reasons that we think multiple sources at FOX claimed they didn't know anything about the allegations that they had simply fired him for the feuding and disappearing from set interestingly, it was in two thousand ten when Sasha baron Cohen was one of the few different actors in talks to play the lead role in bohemian rhapsody. But then amid a flurry of reports about creative differences, some believe the reason he wasn't attached to the film had to do with it not being realistic enough for him that was dispelled after bohemian rhapsody is released by the movie producer. But it still didn't stop the rumors in one interview Cohen said about Freddie, mercury's story that quote, the guy was wild. There are stories of little people with plates of cocaine on their heads walking around a party and quote. But you'll see none of that in bohemian rhapsody and in the end Ramey. Malik was cast in a lead role. That was a decision that obviously turned out well for the film itself, but it didn't change what many reviewers believed to be feel good film that stays very surface level when it comes to historical accuracy. I'm Dan lab. And this is based on a true story. Before starting our story today. There's two things we need to do first. Let's set up our game to Trues ally. If you're new to the show, here's how it works. I'm about to say three things two of them are true. Which means one of them is a lie. Are you ready? Okay. Here. They are number one, Freddie. Mercury was not his birth name number two, Freddie. Mercury. Never married. Mary. Austin number three queens Live Aid, performance was Freddie's. I after being diagnosed with aids got him. Okay. Now as you're listening to our story today, you'll find the two facts scattered throughout the episode and then by a simple process of elimination. You'll be able to find out which one is lot. And of course, we'll do a recap at the end of the episode to see how will you did the last thing to do before getting to the meat of our story today is to find out what will be covering next week over on the producers feed, and let me look at my calendar here it looks like on Monday the age. Eighteenth. We'll be covering Kong skull island. That'll be fun to learn more about some of the nuggets of truth that helped make that fictional story. Like king hongs seem just a little bit more real. So you'll get that on the producers feet next week. If you aren't on the producers feed, you can get access to that by supporting the show over at based on a true story podcast dot com slash support. Once again, that's based on a true story podcast dot com slash support. For today, though. Let's learn about the story of Freddie, Mercury that we saw in bohemian rhapsody. Movies begin with a bit of an opener. That's not key to the story quite yet. And today story is one of those for a brief moment, we see Remy mallets version of Freddie, Mercury as he's preparing for the Live Aid concert in the year nineteen eighty five, but this is a brief glimpse into what's to come. So the movie doesn't give us much here. And since we'll chat more about this later on when the movie gives us more detail, we won't dwell on the Live Aid show too much other than to mention that as you can probably guess it did happen, and it took place on July thirteenth nineteen eighty-five. After this back in the movie were sent to the year, nineteen seventy we see Malik version of Freddie as he's working as a baggage handler at an airport. One of the handlers tries to be degrading to him when he calls, Freddie, a quote Paki, and quote, but Freddie's quick to point out that he's not Pakistani then we cut back to Freddie's house where we see his mom dad and sister, although we also. Out that Freddie's not his real name. It's for Ruch. And even though we don't learn this until a couple minutes later in the movie, we also find out that his family's last name isn't mercury but Bill Sahra. These are all true. There's a lot more to the story here that the movie doesn't mention for ball sorrow was born on September fifth nineteen forty six in a place called stone town, that's the capital of Zanzibar. You're not sure where that is. That's a little island off the east coast of Tanzania in Africa. That's technically part of Tanzania, but it's also somewhat autonomous at the time. When for Ruch was born there Zanzibar was a protectorate of the British empire that ended when the sultanate did in nineteen sixty four but more on that in a bit although left Zanzibar for time before that while his family remained. He was sent to Bombay to go to boarding school. That was in nineteen fifty four one Faruk was eight years old there were two schools. He went to Bombay one called Saint Peter's and another called Saint Mary's. These were very formative years for for Ruch being a British influence school. Some of the other students had trouble pronouncing his name. So that's why he started going by the dick name, Freddie. Eventually, of course, it would become more than just a nickname. He also started listening to a lot of western pop music and even formed a band at the school by the time nineteen sixty three rolled around. Freddie had finished school in return to his parents home in of our. But then there was a massive revolution to overthrow the Sultan of Zanzibar. It was a fight that saw thousands of civilians caught in the bloodshed between the revolutionaries in the sultan's troops fearing for their lives. The ball Sarah family managed to escape scenes of our and moved to the city of Feltham in Middlesex England, once they're FREDDY went back to school, not a boarding school this time, but to ISO worth poly Technic in west London, where he studied art after that he went to a further education institute called healing art college. That's also in London while he was there. He continued studying graphic design and art he gr-. Graduated from ailing nineteen sixty nine. So it was after all of this at the movie never shows where we're finally caught back up with the movies timeline. That's because soon after graduating ailing, Freddie, did the same thing a lot of recent graduates. Do he found whatever job he could? Well, he tried to find something a little more in line with his artistic skills and that job he found was as the movie shows as a baggage handler at London's Heathrow airport. No, that's not quite the first job that he found after college. But we'll get a little more to that later. In fact, as a fun little side note, it was on September fifth two thousand eighteen that British Airways put on a tribute to the one time. Baggage handler turned superstar a bunch of the baggage handlers, they're teamed up to perform Queen songs in the hallways of the airport on what would have been Freddie's seventy second birthday on include some links to where you can see videos of that online in the show notes or you can just do a search for Heathrow airport in Freddie, Mercury to find him. Let's head back to the movie now because after seeing a glimpse of Freddie before his time in a band. We see remix version of Freddie, Mercury heading to a bar when evening to find a band playing called smile. He's intrigued and after the show he meets up with the band by their van out behind the building to give them a song that he wrote. He just thought it was a bit of fun. But the other band members, Brian May and Roger Taylor shrug it off. Brian May is played by grim Lee. And. Roger Taylor's portrayed onscreen by

"Point five. Steve trevelise. What are you gonna do a three one zero one point five? Oh, man. What a great interview what a great interview, Frankie Valli junior. His father of the subject of green book. Which is of course, Frankie played. Luke, potassium, the sopranos. But this is this is an incredible story. I want to see this movie. Like, I saw the story that was written in nj dot com. And it went on and on and on. And I couldn't put it down. It was great. And then then I realize as I see Tony lip notice guy. I know idea you such a good guy. But you had no idea that he had this. The this part of his life nineteen sixty two. Tony. And Don, Shirley, no, Don, Shirley is basically a concert pianist. He lived on top Carnegie Hall, spoke eight languages, and then you donate. It was pretty much. He's ov he's. He's he's a guys bouncer. He's a fighter. We don't think. No. You know, and the two of them, you know, they go on this tour through the south and the green book was a book that was put together by a black postman who basically found the places where they could go and not be hassled because this is one thousand nine hundred sixty two it's the deep south, and, you know, back then they didn't have Twitter hashtag and social media's. And we very happening. They had guns. And it was not, you know, this guy was not welcome. Black people are not welcome. At a lot of parts of the south is all well know, and this was pre racism, and these two, you know, as I saw on the view marshal Ali was talking about how you know. Tony was racist. And as they grow together as they hang together. They learn so much more about each other that you know, they change each other. And they learn a lot. But it's a it's a really good movie that I want to say, well, what did you do this hour one eight hundred two eight three one one point five till ten o'clock. The Oscar nominations are out. Gimme some movies now. It's so cold, it'd wants to love they want to curl up with a movie, you know, hot toddy or something. Have you seen any of these Oscar-nominated movies? The only one I saw was a star is born pretty good. He liked it. It was good lady. And Bradley Cooper was great. And like he was it was a very personal movie for he set for himself. So he directed it. And in the whole thing. So he he was really good to be buried with Bradley Cooper. Cooper. He's an eagles eagles fan for the game. It had passed that. If you've got to have, Bradley. Did you sacrifice? I don't know. He do any wrong, Bradley Kobe. He would just faint all over the place. But I mean, he's Bradley. I mean, is it really acting Bradley Cooper, just so that's Bradley Cooper playing. He was acting in this movie. He was really good at it. It was always great. He had to say. Yeah. He he actually rehearsed with Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam to learn the mannerisms on stage and some of the things and actually wrote his own songs and stuff about that. Yeah. Like, he really got into it. See I saw I love I saw Mr. Lyons playbook. Yup. So many Bradley Cooper movies. You know that any plays different characters Christian bale. Vice I heard I heard it's really good. But I didn't get a chance to see it. Yes, raqi. Yeah. It's very whack. That's how Dick Cheney y mean exactly they said it kinda sums up perfectly from what I've what I've read at least. Well, the thing about the Christian bale is that Tom Hanks is like this too. There are so some of these guys like deniro when you when you see Christian bale in a movie, he's always somebody. He's a completely different guy. Yeah. I'm watching him as Cheney as he goes, and he puts on all this weight, and it was really him putting on the weight. Yeah. So, you know, you see, this fact Christian bale, and then thinking back to the fighter way, remember the fighter when he weighed fifty pounds. I use the heroin addict. Well, there's a great. As batman. Batman. There's a story that I read pipe a few weeks ago, they did a scene at Trump Tower. And he was dressed as Bruce Wayne, and he went up to see Donald Trump. Trump was literally treating him like he was Bruce Wayne. Incursion like wasn't sure if you realize like it's Christian bale and not they weren't acting off camera just talk. But that's along the lines of what you're saying. I mean, he was so in character Trump was treating them and talking to them like I mean, but he was he opens his mouth he's got that thicky. When you hear them to mazing when you hear him as best say one thing, though, they give anything away from the movie when you hear him Dick Cheney sounds a lot like Batman. Aw. Yeah. What he does his English voice. He's english. I guess in America. He's got the gravelly voice. I guess that's the one. Yeah. Cheated a little bit. I saw bohemian rhapsody. Yeah. You said you did you love it epic. The thing about he. I mean, the story the way they told the story is great. And I mean, it's funny because I'm watching it first of all Romy male. Exactly. Like pretty mercury. Yes. I watched it. And my kids watched it, and then we went and we brought up the Queen Live Aid performance. That was incredible. And it was almost exact I mean, it was incredible the way they did it. But the story was so great. I'm thinking, oh my God. They had the way because I lived through that. Yeah. I have. Loyd. I was walking. And then a Google. It had originally saucer baron Cohen was supposed to play him. Freddie. Mercury. Yeah. And he dropped out because he thought they were trying to sanitize the movie too much. He wanted it like raw and as much of the the depiction of Freddie, Mercury like the rise of the fall. You know, the whole thing see that as a problem. Yeah. I don't know how they ended up with the script. But he be backed out. But he was he was the original guy who was supposed to do it. I don't know if I could buy it. But they said, yeah, this kid was amazing. Apparently, I heard they said even the Queen members were like blown away by how much he they're the ones who made all the money from the state produced, and they should Brian me. They said they were just blown away by like how much he acted in sung like, Freddie. Mercury said. It was remarkable. Yeah. And you know, what it's it's it's sad. Because too bad the guy couldn't see because if he could he made, but what are you going to two eight three one zero one point five, isn't it wanted to give me a movie any movie that you have seen in the last year? And what did you take me review? I don't give it to an old movie, a new movie, give me a movie that you've seen in the past year that you remember enough and think enough to want to call in and talk about what about you. Did you see a quiet place? No that you should go. See a quiet Jonkers in ski and Emily blunt or the main two, and it's very good. It's pretty much there isn't I know this. What is it about? It's it's post apocalyptic world kind of after these creatures that can hear people pretty much kill everyone. Spoiler alert. Jack Ryan now. Yeah. I got the malzahn prime Amazon prime, right?

"Where like I see some of the rough and tumble. Like all of a sudden, boom, you know, and I'm like, wow. All right. Okay. Let's worked I agree. If you're getting a standard bio pic, give me a couple of scenes when he's down out. What what's that? I record. Does it nails? It all the record flops. He thinks he's done like give me a couple of those seems at least build up to all of a sudden gigantic star. I thought he was great though, Robbie Mollica. I don't watch mister robot stick with the movies Sinophile, but people watch TV dummies great. And I thought he was preening strutting all over the place. A Mick Jagger type I thought he was really good. It's pretty murky, but I'm gonna demand as far as the movie wasn't particularly notable or original and people who love Queen were furious with because they said, they completely took things that have order, and they made that whole live eight concert, which is the climax of the film. You know, that wasn't actually true to life to which I say, listen, son documentary film. So what you're going to have some some issues with it. But I know the Queen army who are diehard fans were really an embargo. It went down. Right. I was I was not happy about that. Because you're right. Like the down and out. Thing the struggle on the way there Walberg had nail the rehearsal in rockstar, and then he wasn't accepted right away. So that was kind of more believable. But I went through the factor fiction stuff, and I expect things to be tweaked here, and there, you know, give it the old, touch, but he in the movie they haven't broken up. Spoiler alert for all those that don't want this to be ruined. In the movie. It's like, hey, I have aids I'm dying. Sorry. We broke up. Can we please get back together? Play one more time for everybody as Queen Live Aid. And then I remember that Live Aid show that was a really I know people laugh now, but like in nineteen eighty-five that was a huge, he'll it was a huge deal worldwide that concert, and then you know, he ends up. He ends up dying later on in real life. They'd been back together for six months whoring, they'd already gotten back together that it wasn't just the, Freddie. Mercury bailed solo that one of the other guys had done to solo projects anyway. And he didn't tell him before. Because he didn't even know he didn't know how to aids until two years after the Live Aid show. So that I thought was like a real departure from what really happens to the point of like, okay? It's not a documentary. But you changed his whole deal. And the relationship with the band for this kind of dramatic finish, which I understand. But man were there some departures there, and I didn't know any of that stuff. Because as soon as I watch a movie like that, I go. Okay. Let me see what was real. And what wasn't and basically every major beat at the end was like now, that's totally out of order. It's not really what happened. Yeah. That's the thing. I think at least all answer filmmakers was it to commercialization. Sure. Like, we're not going to be true to life. We're trying to the spirit of the guy story, which you're right. If you know this restoring man, so this whole idea of this magical reunion. Let's do it for Eddie's dying or Freddie, who's done actually didn't even know that does charisma side. But whatever, by the way, volume oxen, nominate for kademi award for best actor, you just got nominated for Golden Globe. I wanna see a best supporting actor nomination for his teeth. I mean that was unbelievable that over by the ad. I don't know how we did it sixteen hours a day with those dentures in those teeth. He was such an incredible star. That's the real magic of this film. That's what it's taught me. You can just have. Jacked up teeth?.

"I thought it was definitely the best moment of the movie. It's this long extended twenty minute almost shot for shot recreation, the band's performance a moment like that make a movie like this worth it for you. Absolutely. I think. Yeah. It's while this morning. I was rewatching the actual Queen Live Aid performance. And like you say the shot for shot thing. I'm really curious. You know, once this comes out on DVD or just streaming or whatever like, there's always people on YouTube when they take they take rockstar picks, and they lineup footage like they do split screen of the movie, and, you know, live footage of the person the movie is about, and I'm really curious how exacts, you know, the movements down to Freddie, mercury's like movements like where he is on stage during Live Aid because just to sort of eyeballing it, you know, like all the Pepsi cups and the beers on the piano and the way like fiddles with a knob on a speaker. Like right before he starts when he blows a kiss like just just from what? I can tell like I think it's as close to exact as they could make it like every specific detail of that scene. Very specifically. And I'm curious how exactly got it. And like, yeah. I mean, it's enormously effective, and it's just sort of a relief for twenty minutes or so that there's no light dramatization. And there's no explaining how they wrote the song like there's no cheesy bio pic aspect, you know. It's just them performing, you know, and yeah, it's it's incredible. And I you know, I think that's the bulk of what everyone loves about this movie, and what will bring people back to it. Let's talk about Romney, Molly, he's going to be probably nominated for best actor, this is a really interesting role and performance for him. He's obviously best known as Elliot from mister robot, which is a very interior performance. People might have seen him earlier this year, they'll probably not in a remake of the Steve McQueen movie poppy own he also has a has a very internal performance in that movie. He has an internal performance in the master. You may recall but Romney, Molly has never done. A character this big and this crazy and larger than life. What did you think of what he did was pretty incredible? I just the physical Ness just down to the teeth and just the cheekbones sort of the way carries himself just as a pantomime as an impression of a human. Like, it's really it's really striking like immediately. I was trying to decide the moment if it bothered me like the lip synching the obvious lip synching. But first of all, I don't think you're going to get like a competent actor who can actually sing. Like, freddie. Mercury. Like, Bradley Cooper would say otherwise. Well, there's a scene in the movie where specifically lip synching is bullshit. We're not doing that. It's good comparison for this movie. I was watching scenes from walk the line this morning joking. Phoenix dry cash movie. I have to tell you that that I don't believe that as aged. Well, that film tell me more. It it strikes me as very cheesy now, and he is obviously singing, you know..

"In the mix and some of the songs, but like listening to them as somebody who has listened to a fair amount of Queen like the songs in the movie sound basically exactly like the real Queen tracks. Like, I'm not really sure how much singing was involved, and if you're an actor playing a singer, I think that you get more credit if you sing or. Rather than just lip synching. So yeah, he's good. Like, I don't know if he's good enough to transcend everything around him. Yeah. He has goodwill towards him. But maybe it's not quite exactly. And the fact that it's not competing as as a musical Golden Globes, which felt really obvious like a way for him to get in for best actor in a musical or comedy. The that seemed kind of shoot the word chances ahead in the foot, although the Hollywood Foreign Press ultimately makes that decision. Oh, do they like? Yeah. A studio can like heavily say what their preferences like with stars warns going drama too. But like I ultimately it's up to the PA. So then maybe they'll decided, you know, if they wanna words than it is crazy for them to to admit this movie troppo, I mean, Val Kilmer didn't win the Oscar for the doors. I don't know, you know. Expect like this relitigate using Jim Morrison? Hilary's reaction justifies everything that like I think a lot of us feeling for a long time. Which is like this has felt like a cursed project since the beginning. 'cause like we had many actors cycled through many directors cycle through Sasha baron. Cohen Ben Wishaw like all is like I feel like I can track. My time at Vanity Fair by like trade news stories, I wrote about bohemian rhapsody, but that my favorite quote from Sasha baron Cohen when he was like off the project in just like throwing all kinds of salt on the project afterwards is he said that the band thought that the movie like, Freddie, Mercury should die midway through the movie in the back half of the movie should be about how the band triumphs like without him. He was like I should have listened to the warning signs. That is what's very good said. Feels like it it just like, yes. That's that's essentially like, you know, Freddie, burger doesn't diamond way through. But this is a movie about how great the rest of Queen is which is just not as advertised. You know, so. Yeah, totally. And you actually reminded me Joanna of another amazing ridiculous thing about the movie, which is Mike Myers appears, AVI. Mike Myers is like an enjo- his casting because Wayne's world kind of brought Queen and specifically bohemian rhapsody back into like pop culture in the ninety s and so Mike Myers appears as a record executive who hates bohemian rhapsody. The song doesn't want to release it thinks that it's garbage. Just like nobody will ever be like head banging to this on the radio. Yeah. It is so cringe-worthy so bohemian rhapsody comes out anyway. And it's you know, monster hit whatever. But as like the band is playing it on the stage, the movie has this like like succession of like headlines from like reviews of Baheen rhapsody that like flash across the screen during newspaper. It's basically that. But it's all like like this song is garbage Rolling Stone like loud and pretentious, the New York Times. Like just them taking this like really obnoxious victory lap in a really like oh God. It's so bad you guys this movies. So what the world needs in two thousand eighteen in what? In fact, people are demanding is a Wayne's world joke. Got. And then I'm going to spoil the end of the movie, and then so the last fifteen or twenty minutes is just basically a shopper shy recreation of Queen Live Aid. Like, they do almost the entire set that the band played at Live Aid, which is crazy because that video exists. You can just watch it. If you wanna see that you don't have to pay nineteen dollars to see it in movie theater. So they sing we are the champions and on the line. No time for losers at flashes back to Mike..

"All right. So I was really excited about seeing bohemian rhapsody in an opens up here. I think it's next week. When it opens up a sought last night, the critic screening was was here in Saint Louis, and I've seen the trailer for months and I'm so excited McQueen fan. I love the story. Freddie. Mercury. And I could not have been more let down by this movie last night. Now, I I don't think I'm alone on this. But let me give you a couple of different reasons. The Freddie Mercury was arguably one of the best front man of any rock band in history. You start thinking about frontman Springsteen Jagger is a bunch of them. But Freddie, Mercury was flamboyant. He was a risk taker, and you know, the story deserved a better treatment. I'll give you a couple of examples. I rubbed there's no authenticity in this movie whatsoever. You never feel like you're talking to rock band that was decadent, Freddie, Mercury was a guy who did lines of cocaine off the top of midgets heads. But that that is actually true it happened. He invited a bunch of now they represent this in the movie to a certain extent, they have this party that he throws at his house with a bunch of freaks, and that's his mission to have much of freaks different people come over, and there's drugs and decadence. There's no decadence really outside of that scene in this movie, which is a little unfortunate. It's a PG thirteen rated movie. I get trying to expose a great legendary rock story to a bunch of different people who wouldn't go. If it's not R rated, but I really do think there should be some sort of federal law, my tongue firmly planted in cheek that you can't make a movie about a rock band from the sixties seventies or. Even eighties pretend for the nineties in the two thousands. And have it rated PG thirteen because it's not an accurate representation. But let me give you a couple of other issues that I had maybe this is just me picking around the edges when I was twelve years old, we will rock you. And we are the champions came out. And if you remember that was that was a song was an anthem that was being played in like high school in junior high gymnasiums across the country or football stadiums. Because that was the kind of song that it was so in Bryan singer's world, and he's credited as the director here, and I say credit because he got pulled off because of allegations of sexual inappropriateness, maybe even pedophilia with a young kid. So he's taken off the project they shuffle some other guy in it's kind of a messy situation. My understanding was that Sasha baron Cohen wanted to do this movie. He wanted to do it in a very different way. Playing federal Freddie Mercury. Brian May one of the other founders of Queen and the league it's ours. They wanted something a little bit more touchy feely that didn't go into the to the decadence. And that's what they got. So in this movie, we will rock you. And we have the champions comes out in nineteen eighty there's a time stamp in the movie, this is one thousand nine hundred and then shortly after that, you see this convoluted seen with Brian May coming up with we will rocky with Freddie Mercury. Well, that was nineteen seventy seven what was the point be of throwing the time line off like that. Now is that just being picky? I understand movies critic for thirty years. I get storytelling devices. Right. But they also have it in this movie seemed like, Freddie, Mercury was diagnosed with aids before Live Aid the entire movie closes with. I think a lot of people feel that that performance by Queen Live Aid was one of the best rock shows effort in the movie closes with a fifteen minute. Recreation of that which seemed pointless why not just show the original concert in have the footage there. Maybe there was a rights issue. I have no idea, but they have him with aids before Live Aid. It was two years after that. When he was diagnosed, there's all kinds of little things here that are not Representative of the truth. And I get movies do that this is a bad movie. And I think Freddie, Mercury would be kinda pissed if he were alive and saw today. Three thirty. Let's get to the news time for your furnace.
