Rocketman – Quick Thoughts

I really loved Rocketman. I loved the abstract and emotional musical numbers, I loved the nuances in the acting, I loved the subtle ways that it communicates its themes and ideas, I loved the very unsubtle ways that it communicates its themes and ideas. It might get a little cheesy at points, but I loved that as well! It addresses Elton’s flaws and the awful places his career and the people around him have taken him, but it also shows the joy that he has when he performs. I’ve never seen a movie capture the highs and lows of stardom better than Rocketman. Also I think that Taron Egerton gives a better performance than Rami Malek. Fight me.
