Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody

Rami Malek is incredible in this, embracing the spirit and the passion and the teeth of Freddie Mercury with style, grace, and a touching humanity. The actor playing Brian May was also really good, I thought. The scenes were well made with incredible attention to detail, particularly in the remakes of Top of the Pops and of course, Live Aid. It told whatever story it was trying to tell well, and swept you along to the end, by which time I was in floods of tears.

The Usual Suspects

It wasn’t scary in the end because it was good! Phew. I can’t say I liked all of the characters, and there were a few of them I could barely understand anyways, but Kevin Spacey was excellent as per usual. The story was good and fascinating, but as you might have gathered from above, I was slightly bemused by the ending. The twist and then double twist was excellent, but after that it didn’t quite add up. Nevertheless, it was good stuff.

Superman Returns

Superman Returns

Not the best film in the world, let’s be honest. The shuttle bit was the best scene in the whole film. The guy acting as Superman really was hired just for his looks and not acting ability, but the same can be said of everyone involved. Also, we didn’t really follow the beginning of the story - didn’t realise this was a continuation of a film and not necessarily accessible as a standalone.
