I’m not on The Facebook but I do get to hear about some of the tripe that my relations write on it occasionally. Take this from my brother-in-law: “Bohemian Rhapsody is the best film ever made. End of.” Two things annoy me about this statement: 1. The content, 2. How it is expressed. End of? I’m not one to go over the top when confronted by people’s stupid and clichéd phrasing but anyone caught using “End of”, without irony, should be pushed into the path of a combine harvester. As for the content, well, I’ve not yet seen Bohemian Rhapsody but I have to say that I’m leaning towards it NOT being the best film ever made. I will, however, watch it on the telly in a few years time. I’m especially looking forward to seeing how they handle the bit when Queen play Sun City in the 1980s - thus breaking the United Nations’ cultural boycott of apartheid era South Africa - and become international pariahs.
