    Apparently the Bluray release will have the entire Live Aid sequence that was shot included in the extras.

    Went to what must've been one of the last screenings last night and so glad we did. This film was absolutely amazing. I've never been a Queen fan (due to lack of exposure, not disliking their music) so it was a fantastic experience to me. The fact that it was done so respectfully easily overrules the inaccuracies.

    If there's ever been a film to show how far up their own arses critics are, this is it.

    Best Actor (Motion Picture, Drama) and Best Picture (Drama) for Bohemian Rhapsody at the Golden Globes last night.

    And loads of people are saying that it was wrong to win because Bryan Singer was involved with it...

    Saw it today, absolutely loved it! The final 30 mins left me with watery eyes.

    They might as well have just shown the actual live aid concert rather than replicate it exactly.

    4 Oscars out of 5 nominations isn't bad.
    Best editing, best sound editing, best sound mixing and best actor.

    Came out with the most Oscars of all the winners too.

    Honestly though - where was that "best film editing" in the movie though? Whiplash, Mad Max Fury Road, Hacksaw Ridge, Dunkirk. And Bohemian Rhapsody. (squints eyes). Really??

    They are supposed to create interesting stories, sometimes fictional, sometimes based on real events

    It just seemed a bit redundant to me.

    I don't think it would have worked cutting between vintage footage of the real thing and the dramatised bits with the likes of the other characters at the side of the stage, plus there would be limited angles and shots available.

    Quality of media. Live Aid was recorded as interlaced SD. You couldn't upscale and make it look right for a 4k movie.

    I loved that scene and the fact that they got every last little detail right - really made the film for me!

    Shame about the rest of the film, the timeline and mistakes are shocking.
    I have watched it four times though.

    So happy to see Rami take the award at the Oscars. I remember seeing him as an extra in Gilmore Girls all those years ago, our boy is all grown up!

    Ok, that's a good reason.
