This Week: Rocketman
IT’S A MUSICAL?!?
Now, I KNEW this was going to be flooded with Elton John songs, but I expected something similar to Bohemian Rhapsody, where the songs were performed in rehearsals and concerts, but nope, goes full on song and dance!
And it is fantastic! . . . if you like Elton John songs, that is. If you don’t, then I don’t know why you would be seeing this movie.
Also, keep in mind that this is Elton John, so there is a man on man sex scene, which I can tell you is not at all uncomfortable to watch on a giant theater screen while crammed into a seat between my wife and my mother.
Ooo, two gifs, I like it!
Because I know less of the history of Elton John than I did of Queen, I don’t know where the historical inaccuracies are. Fortunately we have the INTERNET TO HELP US!
Go look for them if you care, I don’t.
There was fun fact, John Reid was played by Robb Stark in this film. John Reid ALSO appeared in Bohemian Rhapsody, played by Littlefinger. Maybe when we get the Michael Flatley story, John Reid can be played by Jojen Reed!
Or someone else. I dunno, I needed to research this joke more.
(Researches Scottish GoT actors)
F***! Should have gone with Podrick. Oh well, too late to rewrite it now.
Anywho, I highly recommend this one. Definitely best movie that I’ve seen as a married man.
Which does not bode well for the King of All Monsters.
