Rocketman ★★★★

Wish it had less biopic cliches and more psychological/surreal stuff + pushed the R rating it has harder, but it's hard to not to smile whilst watching this. Edgerton is as good as you've heard and the music/musical numbers are complete bangers. Above all, however, it wears its heart 100% on its sleeve and as a sucker for sap and sincerity, I can't help myself. I know he's retiring soon, but I hope Sir Elton John keeps at it for another 100 years because he deserves it.
