CGiii Comment

The review will follow...just as soon as the memory of Liam Gallagher, Ricky Gervais & James Corben fades from memory!!!

What the hell were they doing in this in the first place?!?

Too many...way too many sychophantic compliments...Liam Gallagher and his foul mouth should be deleted from the public arena!

Nothing - not a word - from the fans...a massive oversight, after all...the fans placed George into their hearts and made him a fortune!

Nothing from his family.

Nothing from Andrew Ridgeley.

Nothing from Simon Napier Bell.

Nothing from Geri.

Not a mention of Fawaz...

Not a word about...about 'the toilet' or prison, or this, or that...so many, too many glaring omissions!!!

Too much time spent on the Sony fiasco...the irony is...this film was produced by Sony!!!

When the film worked, it was heartbreaking...when George spoke of his partner, Anselmo.

Watching [again] George perform 'Somebody to Love' at the Freddie Mercury tribute concert...brought a whole new dimension to the superstar performance - it was simply earth-shattering.

No doubt there will be more documentaries made about Mr Michael...until then, we will have be content with what George wanted us to see.

Just like everyone else...he wanted his privacy respected and loved receiving compliments. On those levels...the film succeeds.

Goodbye George...when you told me you didn't want to be recognised and I said 'well, stop dressing like George Michael' - you laughed, we laughed. I will always remember your laugh. Rest now your troubled mind x.
