Movie Monday presents Music Edition: Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star is Born #MovieMonday #MovieReview #BohemianRhapsody #AStarIsBorn

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

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.

Movie Monday: The Big Short and Creed

Movie Monday is a weekly feature here on my blog, in which I’m rambling about movies I’ve watched lately.

This week, I want to talk about two movies:

 

The Big Short

MV5BMjM2MTQ2MzcxOF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNzE4NTUyNzE@._V1_UX182_CR0,0,182,268_AL_

The Big Short is a drama about Four men who predicted a big collapse of American Finance system (credit and housing bubble collapse, to be precise).

I found this movie pretty interesting and pretty boring at the same time.

The movie was interesting to me becasue I am kind of familiar with the bank system and find the theme of this film as something I want to know more about, since I do like economy.

However, if you don’t care about finances, banks and economy in general, I think this movie is not for you. There’s a great chance you’d just feel bored while watching.

Although the story isn’t captivating, and the way the story is told is also not the best out there, I think that actors had some amazing preformances.

I have to emphasize how perfect Christian Bale was! Just when I tought I already had a candidate for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner, Christian Bale proved me wrong and now I am not even sure wheter I’d like to see him or Tom Hardy winning that award.

 

Creed

Creed is the last movie in the series about Rocky Balboa. It follows a young man Adonis Johnson who is a
creed son of Apollo Creed. The former World Heavyweight Champion Rocky Balboa serves as his trainer and me
ntor.

I found this movie to be really good, it kept me interested from the beginning to the end. It had a really good premise, cute love side story, some really important topics when it comes to life and, all in all, it was a great entertaiment.

I think fans of Rocky movies will be satisfied with this film.
