Woke up this morning to an email from gamebook guru, and Pax Britannia novelist Jonathan Green to say I’d won his Neverland – Here Be Monsters competition. Not bad considering it was written in haste. Soon as The Woo and Zeezee are a bit older I can wire in and write again.
I’m not affiliated with these guys in any way but for amateur gardeners like me I always find every now and then I’m introduced to a plant who’s name I don’t know. Well fear not kindred spirits, our dream app has finally be invented.

So the time came I finally got a day off work and two days after it’s release I get to view the film Bohemian Rhapsody, a Queen biopic. So how was it?
I have a feeling a lot of die hard Queen fans are going to get irritated by a lot of inconsistencies, most notably are the chronology of the songs as the film passes by. We Will Rock You for example if we are to go by this film was released in the 80s. Bzzzzt… Wrong! Next they may be annoyed by Ben Hardy being cast as Roger Taylor and looking not very like him at all. Rami Malek isn’t the best Freddie Mercury look alike I’ve seen either, with John Blunt looking much more like him in the TV movie about Freddie’s life. All this could distract the pessimists among us but what did they get right? For a start Gwylim Lee couldn’t look more like Brian May if he tried. Malek got a lot of Freddie’s moved spot on. The Live Aid section towards the end of the film simply makes you feel it’s that incredible day in 1985 again.

So at the end of the cliché, I as a lifelong Queen fan adore this film totally despite the little discrepancies and will rate it a respectable 8/10 .
