Reviews: BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY / NOBODY’S FOOL

J Bryant and AngieBee discuss BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY starring Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Aidan Gillen, and Mike Myers; and NOBODY'S FOOL starring Tiffany Haddish, Tika Sumpter, Whoopi Goldberg, Amber Riley, and Omari Hardwick.

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

Mary Austin (played by Lucy Boynton) was actually engaged to Mercury at one point and remains the only person to date who knows of the whereabouts of his cremated ashes. The couple were so close, Mercury entrusted much of his estate and his London mansion, Garden Lodge, to her in his will. His song "Love Of My Life," that features prominently on the soundtrack, was a song he dedicated to Austin. (IMDB)

NOBODY'S FOOL

Trying to get back on her feet, wild child Tanya (Tiffany Haddish) looks to her buttoned-up, by the book sister Danica (Tika Sumpter) to help her get back on track. As these polar opposites collide — with hilarious and sometimes disastrous results — Tanya discovers that Danica’s picture-perfect life — including her mysterious boyfriend — may not be what it seems.

Tiffany Haddish co-stars with her idol Whoopi Goldberg for the first time. When Tiffany watched JUMPIN’ JACK FLASH as a young girl, she used to fantasize about having Whoopi as her mother and, ironically, that is the very relationship they both share in this film. (IMDB)
