    It looks like it'll be a musical, which is perfectly fine by me.

    I think they were setting that up with the line about his extra incisors.

    I understand as to the *trust issue. Not sure how I feel about it — and that’s after years of assigning a research paper that explores the truthfulness of films based on true stories. We’ve used Argo in several semesters — and I argue that the film is essentially true even though Ben Afleck was open in pointing out that he created the chase scene at the end for dramatic effect. I was more upset that “Little T&A” by the Stones is used before it’s actual release.:D

    As for novices, how many will now go forward without correction with the *truth that Queen broke up and Freddie played Live Aid knowing he had AIDS and that myth becomes a Facebook reality? Probably doesn’t matter, but I’m overly sensitive about the truth these days.

    :laugh: I assume they’ll be accurate about the year Princess Diana died and then it will Katy bar the door as to reality.

    Yeah I don’t know if it matters. For me the “truth” of the scene is that after announcing to the band that he has AIDS he tells them he doesn’t want anyone to know and he wants to spend the rest of his days making music. Which he did. That the Live Aid performance
    was used to convey the spirit in which he and the band soldiered on? I don’t really have a problem with that.

    Alice through the Looking Glass in 3D, at my wife's insistence. We agreed on the way out of the theater that we got screwed.

    Reality is vastly overrated.

    Ditto, after getting home from the flick. But it wasn't just Queen vids for me. I had to dig out Extreme's performance at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert too.

    11:30 a.m. screening of Orson Welles' "The Other Side of the Wind" which appears to been given no more than a token (middle of the day) UK theatrical release (the cinema I saw it at is showing it at either 10:10 or 10:40 a.m. for the next three days ...)

    I'm curious: did the restored Chimes at Midnight receive any publicity in the UK?

    Not that I remember, but it was probably included in the celebrations of Orson's centenary in 2015 with the release of the "Magician" documentary amongst other events.
  18. Me too. Huge crowd pleaser.

    Saw "Can You Ever Forgive Me" last night and really enjoyed it. Melissa McCarthy is a shoe-in for an Oscar nomination. Two for two for director Marielle Heller, who previously directed "Diary of a Teenage Girl," which I also enjoyed tremendously (despite it being an extremely uncomfortable movie to sit through at times). Her next movie is the Tom Hanks Mr. Rogers biopic.

  22. He's almost too old now although he could easily do the Let's Dance period without any CGI to make him look younger.
