ReelBlend Podcast #42: Bohemian Rhapsody Talk And A London Meet-Up With Fans

Cheers from London! OK, by the time you are listening to this week’s ReelBlend podcast, the boys will have left the U.K. But if you have followed them on social media at all, you know that they were all together for the Bohemian Rhapsody junket in London, which included a fan meet-and-greet (here’s a photo) and the recording of this extra-special, longer-than-usual episode. We hope you enjoy!

It’s rare that all three ReelBlend hosts — Jake Hamilton, Kevin McCarthy and Sean O’Connell — are in the same city at the same time. That, alone, makes this week’s episode special. But the guys also kick this one off with a heated debate about the ending of the new Halloween movie, so if you contributed to the movie’s record-breaking opening, give that a listen.

From there, the guys discussed First Man‘s underwhelming performance at the box office, and whether that hurt the film’s Oscar chances. The Damien Chazelle drama has a long way to go to gain awards traction. Can it happen?

The bulk of this week’s show was dedicated, though, to our London trip. We were all here for Bohemian Rhapsody, the story of Queen that focuses heavily on Freddie Mercury (played to perfection by Rami Malek). And we were able to react to the movie, with no spoilers. We’ll do full reviews later.

But instead, we spent time talking about the incredible fan meet-up we held at The King’s Head in Mayfair, where we got to hang out with some amazing ReelBlend listeners. It was a true highlight meeting everyone, and we really hope to do more of these in the future.

As the podcast rolled on, the guys remembered their most memorable London press events. (Jake’s will surprise you.) And then they played #UnderratedHorrorBlend, as the Halloween-themed Blend game continued for October.
