    The thing about "Rocketman" written in laserfoil:Laserfoil was invented after 1990. They create it by crossing two small lasers over a piece of photographic film.This creates a repeat pattern that is captured by the photographic film.

      +Kevin Burke Yes, but the bandmates did try to sugarcoat a lot of the negative parts of Freddie's life, partly because they probably didn't want to hurt his image, and partly because of the PG-13 rating. Elton really doesn't hold back as much.

      Aug good point they were obviously totally wrong in Bohemian when Freddie announced he had AIDS right before Live AID when he really was diagnosed in 87 after the concert. But I feel that was done on purpose cause they wanted to end the movie at Live Aid. They did have Freddie’s bandmates for the authenticity of the movie.

      Him being alive was better. He worked on set to make sure the movie told a more accurate depiction of his life, both the good and the bad. Bohemian Rhapsody suffered from inaccuracies and constant sugarcoating of Freddie's life. Elton being present in the production really helped this film.

    This is just to outsell Bohemian Rhapsody, they want to outshine Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury and Put the spot light on Taron Egerton as Elton John, and the thing is, this movie is pointless because Freddie Mercury is actually dead, Elton John is still living so yeah.😑😑

    • Aug
      Aug 12 hours ago

      I saw it on Saturday. This movie is better than Bohemian Rhapsody. Reasons why:

      **1.** Elton John still being alive and worked on the production of this film. It's hard to tell an accurate depiction of someone's life from their point of view if that person is dead. Elton was able to help make sure this movie depicted both the good and bad parts of his life from his perspective, not his friend's.

      **2.** The musical aspect makes the songs more enjoyable. Bohemian Rhapsody, besides the final scene, would constantly only play small parts of songs. They were randomly thrown in just because, and started abruptly and ended abruptly, usually having nothing to do with the plot.
      Meanwhile, almost every song in Rocketman is used to further or tie in to the plot. When we experiencing Elton's childhood, we see a musical rendition of "Saturday Nights Alright", showing us the place he grew up in, rather than telling us. We also get to hear more of the songs and there's an easier transition into and out of them.

      **3.** It being R rated helps it show more of his life. Bohemian Rhapsody really only managed to cover Freddie's struggles with his sexuality. Rocketman handles Elton's struggles with his sexuality and addiction to drugs and alcohol, and it does it exceptionally. It also doesn't try to paint everyone else as the villain. There are parts of the movie where you feel like Elton is being a total asshole, and I applaud Elton for not sugarcoating that stuff.

      I could go on. But I'm too lazy to. In the end, this movie covers more of Elton's life than BoRhap did Freddie's, and the musical scenes are better integrated. But I guess I have to wait until next Friday for your reply.

    So if you want a biopic in Hollywood its now mandatory to be a flaming queer like Mercury and now Elton john. Eltn John seems like a little leprechaun man with a inferiority complex because he was a fat pudgy queer and that caused his temper and him to lash out.

    I guess if you were an 80s hair band getting groupie bitches left and right you wont be getting a MUST be a flaming gay...If you have AIDS then its a plu. (Listen, I know this comment isnt going to be popular, but its the fucking truth so who gives a shit what most think) Hollywood loves promoting degenerate lifestyles and the populace eats it up like a queer eating up cum.

      The Dirt is a movie about the Motley Crue, who were an "80s hair band getting groupie bitches left and right".

      We've had two blockbuster movies for rockstars. Way too small of a sample size to be claiming their sexuality is the only reason they're making them.

    I dont like musicals... but this movie exceeded my every expectation. And then some.
    Some people may be worried about the "R" rating... but trust me, the film benefits from this rating, because it gave the filmmakers the freedom to really delve into Elton John's life (unlike "Bohemian Rhapsody, which had a "PG-13" rating, and definitely would've benefited from an "R"), while also not being overly or gratuitously graphic in any way.
    Definitely an awesome film.
