Movie Monday is a feature here on my blog, in which I’m rambling about movies I’ve watched lately.
This week I’ll talk about two movies I watched, both about music and singers, both with Oscars nominations.
Bohemian Rhapsody is a movie about Queens and Freddie Mercury‘s life. I think that at this point everyone has already heard about this movie, because since it came out the critics were really good, and now with the Oscars nominations it is even more popular.
Nevertheless, here are my two cents about this awesome film:
I think Bohemian Rhapsody was an amazing entertainment and I would highly recommend it to music lovers, not only to Queens fans, but to everyone who enjoys songs and showbiz.
I was never a big fan of Freddie Mercury because he was popular before I was even born, and growing up I had some other idols and singers I looked up to, so I knew very little about him to begin with.
This movie gave me a glimpse into his life and personality. I liked the person the movie portrayed, and he reminded me of myself, with his love for cats. It was so funny when he bought a big house and said that every cat will have their own room. I could imagine myself acting like that too (Yes, I know I’m crazy!).
Rami Malek did an amazing job performing in this picture, and if he wins an Oscar, it will be well deserved.
I have to stress out that I liked Bohemian Rhapsody more then the movie I’ll talk about next.
A Star is Born
A Star is Born is another movie everyone talks about lately, filled with great music.
This movie takes us behind the certain and shows us the dark side of music industry.
It pictures what struggles performers do have, and how easy it is to give yourself to alcohol and drugs.
This movie shook me and even now I still think about it, especially about the end.
I don’t have to stress out how great both Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga were. They both got Oscars nominations for their acting, and I would be really happy if Bradley finally won, because he is always nominated and he is such a great actor, so I think he deserves it.
When it comes to Oscars, this year out of 5 actors nominated for the main actor category, I root for 4. So I am pretty sure I will be happy in the end.
I would recommend this movie to everyone who likes music and drama.
