Episode #63: Bohemian Rhapsody

November 15, 2018

Welcome, welcome, welcome to another installment of the Reel Film Nerds podcast!  Well Matt did it, he braved the Appalachian Mountains to hunt down Mysterious Mike and record a new pod.  Today the boys talk about an incredible biopic on Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody.  Can you believe it the RFN podcast made a top 40 list of the best movie podcasts on the planet?  We are at the 40th spot on the list but we made it!  You can check it out on the Feedspot blog along with all the other winners.  We are in some national company if you can believe it, we can’t.  Topics today include Mike’s wedding to Maniacal Mags, going to concerts, time travel, and our sister podcasts Rogues Radio, Code 3 Podcast, The Blue Milk Podcast, and The Mile High Show.

Bohemian Rhapsody is an amazing film peering into the life and formation of the band Queen focusing on their lead singer Freddie Mercury.  The story is great but it leaves something to be desired.  There just was not enough of Mercury’s back story or enough on the other band members.  It also checks the boxes for every band biopic trope.  The stand out performance of Rami Malek embodying Mercury is unbelievable!  If he is not nominated for an Academy Award Matt will lose his mind.  The soundtrack is incredible of course and the Live Aid scenes are so realistic it feels like you are there!  Matt and Mike both agree that this film is a solid 4 out of 5 Reels.  It is a must see in a movie theater if for nothing more than Malek’s performance and the incredible soundtrack.

The guys are back in full swing and hope to stay that way for the foreseeable future.  Next week look forward to their reviews of the Nazi zombie horror flick Overlord and a brand new Netflix original movie Outlaw King.  Thanks for sticking with us and landing us on a top 40 list.  Make sure to tell your friends about us and don’t forget to rate and review our show.  Chat at you next week!
