Rocketman ★★★★

Every once in a while you're rewarded for waiting to watch a movie at home and Rocketman is the perfect example of this. I don't think the film would have had the kind of impact had I watched it in a theater. Taron Egerton transforms into the legendary music star as we travel from his childhood, to his early days as a musician, to his big break and eventual struggles with drugs and alcohol. There are also some fantastic supporting performances from Jamie Bell and Richard Madden. Bryce Dallas Howard was... interesting casting as Elton's mom but there's so much good here and the role is so small that it doesn't really detract from the overall product.

Also, this is without question the most interesting installment of Kingsman I've seen so far. ;-)
