Queen drummer Roger Taylor branded criticism of the Oscar-winning biopic 'Bohemian Rhapsody' as being 'sneering and superficial'. The 2018 movie won its star Rami Malek the Oscar for Best Actor for his role as Freddie Mercury, and while the movie made a staggering £700 million at the box office, Taylor is clearly still sore about the middling – to bad – reviews the movie got. "I think people know a lot more than film critics," Taylor told Planet Rock, "and the word of mouth via social media is so much more powerful than review from a guy who probably watches 40 movies a week, and has probably lost the essence of the joy of a movie.” But what do you think?

Q1. Do you think film critics are out of touch?

Yes. I prefer personal recommendations.
No. They generally get it right.
