Literal Translation of Bohemian Rhapsody is a Gritty Crime Thriller

We all know the lyrics to this famous Queen song, so sing along to this short film’s script!

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is one of those songs you simultaneously love and hate. You can’t help but love the colorful lyrics and vocals, and you begin to hate yourself for wanting to belt out the lyrics ala Freddie Mercury whenever you hear the song in public.

But did you know that when you translate the song into a short film, it makes for a wonderfully gritty crime thriller?

For starters, the lyrics start off with the main character lamenting the choices he has made in life.

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide,
No escape from reality.

And we’re taken back to the beginning where he has committed a crime and he explains it all to his mother.

Mama, just killed a man
Put a gun against his head
Pulled my trigger, now he’s dead

It’s the age-old story of a man who wants to run away from the crime he has committed, and thus is saying goodbye to his mother. His life has just begun, but now he’s gone and thrown it all away.

That could have been the end of it, but there’s no way his crime will go unpunished. Instead, he is cornered by cops demanding his surrender, and him (and his mother) begging for mercy.

I’m just a poor boy, nobody loves me.
He’s just a poor boy from a poor family,
Spare him his life from this monstrosity.

But alas, no crime goes unpunished, and the man is left to suffer the consequences.

Unfortunately, the climax of the song that goes “So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye? So you think you can love me and leave me to die?” didn’t make it to the short film.

Still, it’s a pretty awesome literal translation of a classic rock song!

Why ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Cast Members Were Given Fake Scripts

It was a necessary evil, according to the directors.

While avid Marvel fans excitedly await the arrival of the third Avengers movie, or most popularly known as 'Avengers: Infinity War', it has been revealed that cast members of the highly anticipated film were given fake scripts prior to filming. Although the act could have disappointed the stars, as all their efforts in memorizing dialogues and practicing their scenes turned out to be futile, the deception was actually a necessary evil.

There is no denying that 'Avengers: Infinity War' is the biggest Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movie so far. Apart from the fact that it will be the culmination of the brand, it is also the biggest gathering of Marvel superheroes in one live-action movie. While there are rumors claiming that certain characters will finally meet their demise in the said film (including that of Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man), outsiders can only speculate for now, thanks to its production’s strategy in safeguarding the story.
