I still vividly recall in the winter of 1977, getting chills down my spine when I first heard the song everyone at school was talking about called "We Will Rock You". But it wasn't until I saw them live in SEP 1980 that I became a massive and life-long fan. For the next 15 years or so (well after Freddie's demise), musically, they were about all I could think of. During that time, I learned a great deal about their music and their history. And with this excellent documentary, I learned even more.

And far beyond supplying interesting facts, this show was well-paced, very well constructed, and downright entertaining.

For any fan of Queen, whether they be casual or serious, I highly recommend taking the mere 52 minutes to watch and enjoy this show.

Loved it!

I love to watch documentaries and interviews with my favorite celebs just being themselves. Freddy appeared to be a very genuine, kind person, as did the other group members. Queen's music was a huge part of my adolescence, and I even got to see them on the News of the World tour - I'll remember it always. I'll agree with some of the other reviewers, in that, when their former publicist, Eric Hall spoke, my goodness! Between the accent (which I normally don't have issues with) and his garbled speech, you could only make out like half of what he was saying, and his input was probably pretty integral to the story. The guys are lovely, I miss Freddy, long live Queen.

Very good...but captions needed!
Verified purchase
The history is very interesting and fun to watch. But dang, I can't understand a word that Eric says because of his accent. I'm pretty sure that his comments are central to how awesome this documentary could be, but I can only understand about 20% of what he is saying. Aren't there sound engineers that are supposed to make sure that a video is understandable? Would have been really easy to add captions.

Interesting
Verified purchase
This is, in many ways, a wonderful documentary. The only reason I gave four instead of five stars was because there wasn't enough about Freddie himself. Perhaps he cannot be separated from Queen. Another item on my wish list would have been more music and less talk. Personally, I would have watched a longer film to see more music and more about Freddie the man. Still, it is easy to recommend.

Eric Hall needs subtitles.
Verified purchase
This film was a lovely tribute to Freddie. He is worthy of all of the compliments and accolades showered on him. Queen was a brilliant band, and Freddie was a brilliant musician.

One star removed because Eric Hall needs to be subtitled! He's got this accent that is so heavy that I can't understand much of what he says.

Every time the guy in the pink polo came on, I wanted to scream. Made the whole thing unwatchable for me.
