Secretfantasy, re:

and....

I've - LITERALLY - had to pick myself up off the floor after laughing so hard. Brooks will have no control over the editorial process of the film which will not be changed on the back of contributions from Queenzone.......

It'll be interesting, however, if someone can report back on what credit Brooks receives (if any) for continuity and any contribution to the screenplay.

Ha ha - obsessed with detail that they get fucking wrong time and time again. Pathetic in their arrogance.

No - he's just playing guys like you like a fiddle.

GB is several steps ahead of people on forums who have nothing better to do than complain about the minute little details.

The Hollywood cats don't know the difference. And GB gets to tell his grandkids he purposely inserted bullshit into a Hollywood blockbuster film.

Doesn't exactly speak to the quality of his character, if that's what he's doing. Sounds like a really sad and pointless ego-trip to me.

Accuracy is important. It's one factor among many that can affect the success of a movie. Accuracy helps the audience suspend disbelief. Quality of script, acting, budget, special effects, casting etc are all factors too. But if you get obvious anachronisms like this then it can be problematic. *If* (and there's no evidence that it's the case, just conjecture, so everyone should be careful about making such accusations) someone is intentionally sabotaging the film by deliberately including errors then that is unprofessional and potentially serious. Film studios do monitor feedback, social media, audience reactions and if there are enough negative comments it will be noticed.

That said, music biopics are usually terrible. I haven't seen anything *yet* that makes me think this film will buck the trend.

The only reason that we're complaining about the little details is because GB openly shouted from the rooftops that there wouldn't be any due to his involvement! IF the reason for them is actually down to his intentional sabotage, it only reflects badly on him. (however I doubt the errors are intentional as his incompetence/slap dash approach is well proven).

Well, somebody had to type or at least copy and paste that.

I would think it was intended, but not as sabotage, of course. Instead, I would guess it was just a way to briefly promote a well known (Brian) song.

@GoldenSalmon LOL :D

You do realise, us Queenzoners are in a massive minority here and are no way typical of the cinema going public who will flock to see this film. They won't pore over the minutiae like us, they'll be well happy with a hollistic representation of Queen, Freddie and their story.And that's the way it should be. An impression in the right spirit will be how it's remembered, or rated.

You could be right.

There are only two possibilities here. GB is totally inept at his job and no one at QP or the record company or film makers have noticed. Or he has made decisions to put his mark on film history

Either is possible although at this stage I have a feeling you're right.

"GB is several steps ahead"

This is almost certainly the most wrong thing that's ever been said at any point in history.

He's a Ricky Gervais character. It's would not be a 'gotcha' to waste time on such a gesture, haha.
