Rocketman

#1 Post by tonethestone » Thu May 16, 2019 8:46 pm

I’m a fan of Elton John’s music, I’ve seen him Live and he was great, but I just found this film utterly bizarre, its very basic by numbers in the main, but some very odd out of place scenes.. Main actor playing Elton was ok, but the film is too basic and doesn't dig enough and every actor in the film appears to be on hyperdrive or an exaggerated person of the real version.
I wasn’t a fan of Bohemian Rhapsody either so maybe just not a fan of music bio films.
2/5.

Or maybe not a Dexter Fletcher (yes him) fan! He directed about a third of BoHo after Bryan Singer was fired.

Then again, not liking that film only means that you are still sane.
