How else can I explain this so that some here will understand it?

The utilitarian and marketing justification for the title is very understood. The significance is clear.

What the issue is (to someone like me) is that it's a lazy title, uninspired and boring. It also doesn't describe Queen.


With respect, I think we understand what you are stating quite clearly.

If any song title describes Queen and their story it's this one. It is the song that made them. It is the song they are most known for. It is the song that perfectly encapsulates their attitudes and creative thoughts towards music (the fact that it is so free, not easily defined and, well...different). It is the song that some fans believe to be the story of Freddie's fight with his own sexuality. And without it, it is highly probable that none of us would be having this discussion today.

So, even if one ignores the marketing behind using this song title, it is still an obvious and perfect choice for the film.

Hmm. I don't know really. I personally would have preferred Ben Whishaw, I think he's a remarkable actor. But I'm not sure it's poorly casted, or at least I will reserve judgement.

The trailers look ok, I'm in no wild hurry to see it, but I really hope they have some new music for us.

I can't believe no one suggested "Somebody to Love".

They could steal the title of an actual movie coming out a few weeks before it...
