I thought Rocketman did alright. I like how it unfolds Elton John’s story which was really interesting. It was definitely like Bohemian Rhapsody. I do think it was a little too ‘explicit’ for a PG-13 rating. In heaps of scenes in the movie it was very boring let’s say. But I thought it was a pretty alight film by its self.

This film does many things better than Bohemian Rhapsody, most importantly it takes it's time telling the story, whereas Boh-Rap rushed everything along in order... More to get Live Aid. Back to my 'emotional best of' the music ques are genius in how they propel the drama and a personal reminder of just how his songs have been around me growing and just how damn good those songs are. Queen had the anthems but Taupin/Dwight wrote masterpieces - I'm about ready to purchase a Best of the Bitch CD for my midlife car stereo.
This emerging Rock'n'Roll Cinematic Universe is a winner in that as viewer, the enjoyment of the music whisks you into the story.
P.S. I remember years ago sitting in a rather empty and beautifully air-conditioned Imax one summer afternoon with my popcorn, choc top & coke waiting The Dark Knight to screen. Elton John's 'Blue Eyes' was playing over the sound system ...at the time I sat in tranquil bliss dipping my popcorn into my ice cream thinking, "Damn this song IS really good!"Hide
