    "While I am not a big Queen fan, I am a fan of music in general with the Rock genre being my favorite. It is very interesting to see the background of how this band started and how they came to fame. Freddie Mercury is by far one of the most dramatic lead rock singers in history and it is quite riveting to see how he worked and lived his life and interacted with his band mates. It is also interesting to see the creative process of how they made their music. Very cool to see that a motion picture had been made about this band and how they came to fame."

    "This is a really great story about overcoming your upbringing and surroundings. If you know nothing about Eminem and his story or even if you don't like rap music you will still probably like this movie. The soundtrack is great, the acting is really good, and the story is really inspirational. If you're in the mood for an uplifting story give this a shot, you won't regret it."
