It seems the real FM is in the right speaker, the actor is on the left. He must have studied the footage for months. This was a good, entertaining movie, btw. See it if you haven’t.

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

I grew up with those guys and found the movie fantastic, especially the music that we used to blast at super high volume.

Just a great band. Writing and musicianship on par with the best rock music has to offer. I include FM on a short list of favorite rock singers. But that’s a whole ‘nother thread. IMO ymmv, etc. Smile

+1. I thought going in it would be “corny” but was pleasantly surprised.

It is a great movie. remember this is the hollywood version and not a documentary on FM or Queen so don't get your suspenders too tight about what happened when and who did what to whom.

Wikipedia is helpful in that respect.
A great movie, nevertheless. And truly great music.

I saw the movie in the theater. Rami Malek was amazing. You almost couldn't tell the difference. The recreation of Live Aid was incredible.

Yes, “almost“ being the key word. While you can tell that Malek studied/mimicked Freddie, and did it very, very well, he was after all, just copying the original. Just look at the way they swagger and move around the stage. It’s natural for Freddie, not so for Rami. Buuuut, I sure can’t do that! And yes, yes, yes! The Live Aid recreation was simply amazing.

Agreed. There will never be another Freddie. He did copy the original, and the copy is never a good as the original. But did a good job. I can't do it either so don't feel bad. Never could.
