We tend to be mostly polite and civil during episodes of Cinemaholics, but this is an outlier of an episode. Things got heated during our discussion of Bohemian Rhapsody, the new biopic about Freddie Mercury and the band Queen during their rise to fame in the 70s and 80s. Long story short, I enjoyed the film but wished it could have been a masterpiece deserving of Mercury’s legacy. Will and Maveryke had far larger issues, making for a fascinating discussion around how films depict homosexuality, especially regarding true-life stories.
As you can imagine, though, things loosened up quite a bit as we got into our other reviews, to the point where we were laughing almost too much for me keep the conversation coherent during editing. We hope you enjoy our discussions around Suspiria, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, The Haunting of Hill House, Wildlife, and Boy Erased.
Next week: We need your help deciding which film to do for our featured review. The choices include The Girl in the Spider’s Web, Dr. Seuss’s The Grinch, and Overlord. You can also become a patron and vote your decision in our weekly Patreon poll.
