Bohemian Rhapsody – Review

The long-awaited Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody arrives with a lot of baggage – years spent in development, tumultuous debates about whether the tone of the film should be somber or celebratory, and director Bryan Singer, who was fired mid-production.

Listen to his review below to find out if the movie about one of Hollywood’s...
