The first parts with the fast pace cuts, it looks *and* sounds like one of those meme videos were they take out the audio by cutting
idklol Hace 2 horas
i watched stalker the other day. every cut in that film is deliberate. fast-paced editing should only happen when a scene calls for it. it reminds me of shaun of the dead, where quick editing and zooms are used to great comedic effect. in bohemian rhapsody it seems like the editor was scared the audience will stop paying attention after a second.

I hear they're making a sequel to Bohemian Rhapsody, which I'm ok with since I felt the post live aid story needs to be told. But if they are going to do it, please get a director and an editor who know what they're doing.

Some would say the Academy Awards these couple of years was more "agenda promoting" and "inclusive" than it traditionally was....

The guy playing Brian May wasn't on set with the five other actors. That's why he is often shown alone and why editor had to use multiple shots of every members to be sure they have the same screen time (which I find totally stupid)

Yes, the editing in this scene was subpar, but imo the cinematography was far worse. This film had a pretty big budget, so there is no excuse for such terrible lighting and obvious color correction work done in post. Fortunately, the rest of the film looked pretty decent and great in parts, but this scene in particular looked terrible. Looked like something you'd see in a deleted scene on a dvd - very unfinished looking. As far as the editing, it is easy to pick apart certain scenes but I felt that the overall pace and structure of the film was well-put together. Ottman is a very accomplished editor - so things like "required screen time" for each band member must have come into play to affect his decisions in a negative way.

Interesting observation about the editing. I didn't notice this until you pointed it out. Either way, I found it hard to find Rami Malek convincing. Of course he looked pretty much like him which was great but the acting just didn't do it for me for some reason. And here he wins best actor so I guess I'm just missing something. I REALLY wanted to like the movie because I'm a huge Queen fan. All the hype had me excited and I was looking forward to it. But even though it had it's fun moments, I didn't really care for it. Does anyone feel this same way?

Thank you for this! I tried to recut the footage to make it into something workable (I'm a beginner editor and like to experiment with finished stuff), only to notice the fast cutting coverage just doesn't leave me *any* room to do that. This movie's a mess.

I think that one mistake is to think that slower and calmer equals bad. It seems that Hollywood think that making everything hyper, frenetic and quick paced is immediately considered as better. You’re right about the reason why the movie won the Oscar, great video!

I feel like I'm the only one that didnt like this movie. The story felt incredibly rushed, and too focused on freddie's sexuality which I don't mind but if they are making a movie about Queen they should have focused more on the amazing creative process and abilities they all had. Freddie himself always said he wasnt the 'leader' of the band but the singer and in this film they made it look the opposite way. I feel like the interpetation of Freddie was very exagerated and made him look like a very over the top arrogant man when in real life he was a very chill laid back guy. I get this film was more about his personal life but as a biography it was also very incomplete. Either you show his life or the band's trayectory, not both at the same time because you will end up rusging the story and modifying it to fit your narrative.

I have an additional variable, the director. If the editor knows what to do but the director comes in and micromanages the cut, that can also result in a problem. If the editing in the rest of the movie is passable with certain scenes standing out, that screams director intervention to me. It's likely that the director wanted more (no pun intended) direct control over these particular scenes because, to him, they were the most important.

Maybe not everything has to be 'by-the-book'? If it were, film would be very dull. I enjoyed the editing in this film. It made me feel that I was watching each band members perspective which is what I feel the point of the fast paced editing was for. Not only that, the scene you go on about is supposed to be tense. If you'd seen the film as a viewer as opposed to a critic you may have noticed that.

Funny because I noticed how fast it went to all the band members as if they had to have equal time?

If the Academy takes into consideration the complications during a movie's production when deciding who wins an Oscar, as some of you are suggesting occurred for BR's editing nomination, then they aren't doing their job which is to find the best artists in each category based on their art alone. Any other consideration than who is the best is charity and will inevitably lead to celebrating mediocrity (if the Oscar's don't already *coughs-Black-Panther-coughs*) It wouldn't fly in any other industry: "Joe Schmoe, I know you came fifteenth in our Marathon, but upon being informed that you girlfriend broke up with you the night before, we've decided to award you the first place win to compensate for your obvious emotional distress."

I'm one of the few people I know who hated this film. I watched it with my mother and she hated it too, but nearly everyone else I've spoken to about it thought it was amazing. I was mostly bothered by the factual inaccuracies and the fact that Freddie came across as unlikable (at least to me). I didn't go into it looking at the editing, but it felt like a bad made for TV movie rather than a big budget cinematic film. I wouldn't have even nominated it for any awards other than for the music, but then the music wasn't written for the film. A Star Is Born which was also a music based film and released around the same time was a much better film all round. The songs weren't as good as Queen's, but they weren't expected to be.

www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-47623796 educate yourselves, please. Taking into account what happened, and the Academy most likely knew this, he did pull it off. And what's more, you don't not deserve an Oscar because of one scene. And that's all you, and everyone, can focus on. A single scene.

depressed walrus discontinuity isn’t shit tho. I’m asking what if it’s ISNT shit and it was intentional. Many art films use disjunctive editing for a jarring effect. I guess mainstream cinema isn’t ready for that yet. I mean the creator should know better that the academy doesn’t actually mean anything and most of their awards are very evaluative rather than objective.

There were so many damn montages in this movie I could not believe that it got nominated in the first place and then I came to discover that Bryan Singer is the director AKA sexual predator so then on top of that it just made me like the movie even less although Rami Malek did deliver a really good performance.
