Rocketman ★★★★

Taron Egerton does a great job, you know I love biopics about rock stars, but I prefer my biopics to be a bit more historically accurate, so uses of the songs to tell the narrative rather than a more linear construct chronologically bothered me. The musical numbers are enjoyable due to how amazing the songs are to begin with, but I still think I would have preferred Elton singing rather than Egerton.
