Rocketman ★★★★½

While Bohemian Rhapsody was a crowd-pleaser Rocketman is a biographic fantasy that is not scared to hold back....while also being an adult crowd-pleaser for the many Elton John fans around the world.
What a mesmerizing, vibrant, and energetic film! This is mostly due to Taron Egerton's career-defining and excellent performance as Elton John. He brings the charisma, talent, and emotion to such a dynamic musician that it makes it easy to forget he is acting as he becomes John instantly! The production values and direction are fantastic as well and directly transport the viewers into a wonderland with real grit.
Here is to hoping that Rocketman can garner some Oscar sparkle and buzz! A marvelous tribute to a marvelous man!
