I just got back from seeing Bohemian Rhapsody a few hours ago.  Pretty damn good, I thought.  The thing that bugged me about it (which I already pretty much knew about going in, having seen all the trailers and read a few spoilers) was all the inaccuracies.  A few major points in the movie are either not quite the way they really happened or the timeline is way off.  But, with that said, I still enjoyed the hell out of it.  Rami Malek as Freddie is moving, Gwylim Lee is Brian May's doppelganger, and the recreation of the Live Aid performance is spectacular.

The whole "band splits up and Freddie comes crawling back and admits without the rest of Queen his music wasn't really all that good" stuff that I've heard so much about, that never happened in real life, I find insulting to Freddie's memory and his talent to be honest. Admittedly I haven't seen the film, but if those reports are accurate then it will put me off from seeing it. And I assume they are accurate as it's come from multiple reviewers.

It's also made me see Brian May and Roger Taylor in a rather negative light as they were heavily involved in the film, so much so it frustrated Sasha Baron Cohen to the point of walking out of the project, so one can only assume it's their doing or at the very least they had no problem with it being in the film.
