Macro-movement in biopics: The fast past, present, and future of the flourishing genre

(10/17/22 4:00am)

Four years ago, classic rock fans rejoiced in the debut of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the blockbuster film rendering the breakthrough, achievement and dominance of rockstar Freddie Mercury and 70s juggernaut Queen. “Rhapsody” championed the box office and awards alike, garnering adoration from critics and fans, domestic and worldwide. It became the highest grossing biographical picture of all time, finishing in box office just a hairsbreadth from the billion dollar threshold. “Rhapsody” shattered and reset the biopic market, opening eyes to the earning potential of this genre.

The Blue Devils have three losses, each by a single possession. They are knocking on the door of their fifth win, which would give them as many as in the previous two seasons combined.

Outside of their biology, most people know and love the birds for their regular forays into suburban backyards and the resulting pit stops at nectar-stocked bird feeders.

When we hear the phrase “passing on,” we may think of someone’s death. This is certainly one meaning of the phrase, but there is another way of thinking of it. It has to do with life, learning, and legacy. That is, even if someone has “passed on” as in death, they may have also “passed on” something to those who are left behind.

Naturalistic observation is awesome. Every day, you go out in the wild, pen and notebook in hand, discreetly writing down everything you see and hear. Occasionally, you take notes from audio or video recordings or rely on the work of your colleagues to stay up to date.
