I think the Ninjago ones are a separate franchise
Really? I wouldn't have expected that. I guess that bodes well for the other ones.
Finally watched Bohemian Rhapsody last night.
I enjoyed it and would give it a 7.5 out of 10.
If you're a fan of Queen or Freddie Mercury it's obviously a must see, but even a casual fan should enjoy and get something out of it.
In my opinion, he is one of, if not the greatest voice in Rock 'n Roll history.
Definitely one of the top 5 vocalists, and #1 front man, IMO.
Just an amazing, amazing voice.
There is no one greatest voice in history. Unless you are referring to Elvis Presley.
I'm an Elvis fan (though not as avid as I was before a couple of threads here made me wanna distance myself from him) and while he did have a great voice, his rise to fame came about more because of his style, novelty, sexual attractiveness, and charisma. There are certainly better vocalists.
Your opinion is noted. I have yet to hear a singer slide in and out of notes/octaves as easily and effortlessly as he did.
Disagree. His voice was heard first. Before he was ever seen. That voice melted women...
There is visual proof. “Are you lonesome tonight....” = ARE YOU KIDDING ME. Lol
everything else you mention had an effect on their granny panties.
Yes, his voice got his foot in the door, and he was a great vocalist, but his voice alone would never have made him The King.
Apollo 11 was fantastic. Even my 23 yr old daughter found the 50 year old footage stunning in its clarity, she thought it was all new! See it in IMAX if u can...
I haven't seen this movie yet but I will .
This is based on a true story of one of my favorite black metal bands.
Hell or high water. Greatness
I wish they'd spent more time on them creating in the studio. It would have been nice to see how they came up with some of their ideas to get the sounds they were looking for like the loose change on the drum head. I would have liked it better if they'd spent more time on the creative side of what they did instead of songs just showing up with no back story. But it wasn't a doc, it was Hollywood.
That could have rivaled the doc on the making of Sargent Peppers with McCartney creating sound that was in his head. Highly recommend that to anyone even with a passing interest in The Beatles or that album. McCartney was not my favorite Beatle but I found new respect after watching that.
Love the Beatles, so I'll check out anything that gives more insight into what they were doing.
Made by the same people, but (at least thus far) they are not interconnected "universes."
I have felt pretty "meh" to "ugh" on all of the Lego movies.
stash, it is fascinating to watch McCartney and the genius George Martin in the studio coming up with ways to match what McCartney was hearing in his head and technology for music was in it's infancy stage. I was always a John fan and saw Paul as the love song guy but not after seeing that. How they developed what would revolutionize the music world just gives them more credence as the driving force in the last 100 years.
And if one has an ambient hearing issue as I do, very frustrating to try and watch the Lego movies.
I can't pick a favorite Beatle. They all have their own appeal to me.
"Blue Collar" - 1978 flick starring Richard Pryor, Harvey Keitel and Yaphet Kotto about disaffected auto-workers in Detroit. Had some tonal problems, but overall it's a great time capsule movie. Richard Pryor could bleeping act, man.
"Leaving Neverland". 'Nuff Said?
It was a cliche filled mess, IMO. Way too generic. Disappointing.
