Can highly recommend this film about the band Queen.   It covers the period from 1970 to 1985 (Live Aid) and follows the trials and tribulations they suffered as a band during that period.    It is not a biopic of Freddie Mercury (although sometimes appears so).     The cast are exceptional in their roles and the film makes you laugh, cry, sing, cheer and at the end want to see it all again. 

Following this we also went to the see Roger Taylor's Queen Extravaganza at the Bonus Arena in Hull last night which was fantastic.    The band were brilliant, in particular the drummer who sang a couple of numbers in place of the lead singer.    A 3 song encore finished the evening for us.    Can recommend it if you are a Queen fan

Much better in the cinema - great sound in there

It would have been OK for this film. However, we generally avoid the cinema as we find the sound levels painfully high.😫 They generally appear in the Sky store after about 3 to 4 months and we can get a HD copy on the box, plus an ordinary DVD that works in the van, for £13.99.😀

I'm the same, I like to watch them at home with the ability to pause it at any time and get extra popcorn, or (more likely) rewind when I've missed something or want to watch a good bit straight away
