    ★★★½

    A very Baz Luhrmann movie, through and through. That means it's a lot of form without meaning. And its pretty much by the numbers...

    I mean maybe yeah, Hanks and Butler are a great pair on screen and I just hope that Butler learned a couple of things from Hanks...for the future. Butler does a great job as Elvis, as far as a non-fan can see.

    This kinda incoherent, complicated, twisting thing happens when the studio is getting involved and the script is written and rewritten a hundred times while production is underway...

    I sometimes wonder what exactly kept me from finding this one. I knew Ron Howard as a director for a very long time, maybe from the beginning of my journey into cinema but I don't know, maybe I found this one too close to LotR or Harry Potter (in the 2000s) and scuffed at the idea of another fantasy film, let alone on from the '80s. Maybe…
