Bohemian Rhapsody is a formulaic band movie that struggles to get Queen’s story off the ground in an original and captivating way, but the Live Aid finale almost makes the whole thing worthwhile – it’s that and Rami Malek’s stupendous performance that save this film.
A wonderful feel good romp, bursting at the seams with nostalgia and classic 80s tunes. It’s Once but with lovable teenage misfits.
La La Land is a living breathing technicolor work of art. A delightfully charming trip down memory lane to the films of Hollywood’s golden age, but also so much more. A modern masterpiece with class performances and cinematography so sharp and inventive that it makes a lot of other films look ordinary. It’s also a musical for those who aren’t that into musicals.
