They just don't live in San Francisco anymore.

Yeah, no shit. I watched Rhapsody at the fire hall and about halfway through I looked around the room and thought “10 years ago there’s no way in hell this group of guys would be sitting here watching this.”

I admit...I'm a huge Queen fan and fully plan on catching the flick, just not catching what Freddie had.

Agreed on both accounts.

Bohemian Rhapsody can't really compare, it was good, but not really in the same ballpark as A Star is Born.

I would probably need to see the original " A Star is Born" before I see this latest. I did see a remake, with Kristofferson and Streisand. I thought it was great when I was in high school, but I was with my girlfriend! I have gone back and forth with Gaga and Cooper, but if I quell my angst I can appreciate their talents.

Watched it with my wife, it sucked. It was slow, drawn out and did it say it sucked?

Agree with Chimo. Sucked.
Watched it on a plane, it was almost exactly the flight time so I thought what the heck... lame.
