      Embrace the past, welcome tomorrow

      If it wasn't for the Oscars, I probably wouldn't have seen this movie, it's not my type of movie after all, but luckily I didn't miss it. Yesterday is all of today, but it is not tomorrow. Elton has always been lonely. No matter how hard he works, no matter how well he plays the piano, he can't get a hug. His father is gone, his mother is cold, and his manager is betrayed. When he is most embarrassed, he may have nothing but music. Elton's experience is distressing, but it has also made him....

      [Film Review] Rocketman (2019) 7.5/10

      Dexter Fletcher's jukebox biopic about British national treasure Elton John, né Reginald Dwight, ROCKETMAN hits all the right notes: Taron Egerton wonderfully shows off his vocal range and re-records John's hits with assertion; it doesn't skip John's queer sexuality like what they have done to Freddie Mercury in BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY (2018) and faithfully reproduces John's flamboyant outfits to...

      Elton John: Compared to Mercury's no way back, the prodigal son is the best ending

      I liked this movie so much, and maybe I liked Elton John's story so much. Although my knowledge of him is basically limited to this movie.

      I lived in an unhappy family since I was a child. I was judged not to be loved since I was a child. I could only be with music since I was a child. I experienced the glory of being a hit, the depression of drug addiction and alcohol addiction, and finally forgave everything in my life. Being forgiven by life and gaining my own love, such an ups and...

      Genius out of the way

      After watching the biographical drama Rocketman (2019), the rock star Elton John (1947- ), I knew he was a rare talent.

      He wrote and sang Can You Feel The Love Tonight , the theme song for Disney's "The Lion King" (1994) , which was a household name at the time, but I wasn't attracted to his songs, which I remember as such. two.

      This film makes it clear to this self-taught genius through just a few scenes. For example, when Elton John wrote...

      I was startled by Eggy, and the live performance was also amazing. It has a different style from the Queen's movie, but the core of the script is not much different, it's just that it is more daring to shoot. People who lack love finally choose to reconcile with the past and themselves. In the end, when good friends leave for life, the real son of heaven will also...

      (6.5/10) Musical or the subdivision of music films and musicals in the Chinese context is actually quite useful. Many music biopics can only focus on the songs in the protagonist's creative stage, so that the songs can only appear in their real-life meaning. This film has an attempt to combine works with life, and in some parts, especially at the beginning, it forms the effect of a musical in the Chinese sense. The songs sung unconsciously further carry the task of advancing the plot. Real-life...

    Evaluation action

    "Rocketman" cleverly combines the gorgeous singing and dancing with the film narrative, using extremely gorgeous words, very "Elton John", tells the biggest ups and downs of Elton John's acting career. The story of the film runs through the beginning and the end of the search for love and learning. The colorful and exaggerated costumes, familiar music, and compact story process firmly capture the audience's love for movies and music....

    Movie quotes

    • John Reid: There are moments in a rock star's life that define who he is and how people perceive him as he ascends into the heavens. You lit the blue touch paper. Now we can all see you shooting light and color into the night sky. Where there was darkness, there is now... you, Elton John. You could do anything you want. You can be anyone you want. And it's going to be a wild ride.

    • Elton John: [from trailer; singing] And I think it's gonna be a long, long time. Till touch down brings me round again to find, I'm not the man they think I am at home. Oh no no no, I'm a rocketman!

    • Bernie Taupin: Don't you want to just go out there and sing without this ridiculous paraphernalia? You know, just... be yourself, Reg.

      Elton John: Why the fuck would I want that, Bernie? You wouldn't say this shit to me if you were a real friend. People don't pay to see Reginald Dwight! They pay to see *Elton John*! Don't ever tell me how to do my fucking job!

      [Elton storms off; long pause and then Elton returns]

      Elton John: I'm sorry.

      Bernie Taupin: [quietly] I know.
