The hit Queen biopic focuses on the band’s triumphant rise. But there are dark moments at the heart of the story you don’t get to see. If you want to see a film that is largely fictional, with cheesy Spinal Tap moments, and a timeline that is more warped than a vinyl record sitting in the sun, get along to watch Bohemian Rhapsody, the new Queen biopic. Now, don’t get me wrong, Bohemian Rhapsody, starring Mr Robot’s Rami Malek, is an extremely enjoyable film in that Lifetime Movie way.

Trump draws ire from firefighters, celebrities for tweet about California fires

News
The leader of the union that represents a majority of California's firefighters said Saturday that President Donald Trump should apologize for blaming the state's deadly wildfires on "poor" forest management. The Camp Fire in northern California reduced the town of Paradise to rubble and claimed the lives of 23 people, Butte County Sheriff Kory L. Honea said. In addition, two bodies were found Friday in the Malibu area, within the 75,000-acre Woolsey Fire zone, Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said.
