I made 2020 my year of catching up on movies, and this is what I started with. Very good, Rami Malek's performance was a bit exaggerated but in a good way, I thought. I loved all of the music and the concert scenes.

Queen is possibly the greatest British rock band of the ‘70s. This film is a rusted crown not fit to be placed upon its hallowed brow. Disjointed, silly, maudlin, cliched, plasticized, inaccurate, smug, and just, ugh. Put on “Queen II” and wrench up the volume. Ça va?

This is a good (great?) movie if you're looking for an introduction to Queen. It gives a VERY quick overview of their history and highlights of their time with Freddie Mercury.

If, like me, you grew up with Queen, this movie is a superficial portrayal and you won't learn anything about the band you don't already know.

I'm not rating this movie, because I don't want to influence the opinion of people who just look at the number of stars.

I enjoyed the movie very much. I love Queen's music and the acting by Rami Malek of Freddie Mercury was really good. The timeline of events for the group was not very accurate in the film (I have since read up on the band), but overall an enjoyable movie.

Absolutely the best movie I have seen in a long time. I wasn’t really even a queen fan but I love this movie. I have seen this movie at least nine times already and enjoy it just as much every time.

The songs of Queen. A phenomenal performance by Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury. Lots of cats (they each get their own bedroom). An addicting storyline. What's not to like about this incredible film? You'll be glued to the screen and singing along to some of the world's best loved music.

The story is simplified to the point of comedy and still the brilliance of Freddy shines through.

Good story, just too bad it isn't what really happened with the band. I know most biographical movies change some parts of the story, but this one changed too much.

Reporter 2: Freddie, uh, your teeth! Why don't you get your teeth fixed?
Freddie Mercury: I live in Britain. I don't want to stand out.
===
Freddie Mercury: I have four extra incisors.

*** expanded quote on his incisors:
Our lead singer just quit.
-Well, then you'll need someone new.
Any ideas?
-What about me?
Uh, not with those teeth, mate.
- Freddie sang: I know what I'm doin' ... I got a feeling ...
The others harmonizing: Doin' all right
-I was born with four additional incisors. More space in my mouth means more range.
