    This was the first thing that came to mind as well.
    I definitely will not be seeing ‘Rocketman’ now...enough said.

    Queen is one of those bands that I never got into but I always thought there will come a day when I pick them up. Led Zeppelin is the same for me.

    I might check out the movie on rental to learn a thing or two?

    Well..let's see, since I can't stand Elton John's music...except that cheesy duet he did with Kiki Dee, "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" which is a guilty pleasure song for me, don't tell anyone, I wasn't planning on rushing out to see that one anyway :).

    BR might be the best rock band biopic of all-time. Not joking. I seriously don't think you would be disappointed.

    Yep that's the way I feel too. That's why I won't go to some concerts because I want to hear music not the artist's political views.

    Just saw Rocketman. Some things I liked, the musical format was fun, I enjoyed that. I never could buy the actor as Elton John.

    The biggest problem for me was the movie was to self indulgent by Elton, he produced it. It was 90% watching him spiral down into drug and alcohol addiction. That got really old.

    I addressed this in another thread. Saw it and was severely underwhelmed. I really wanted to love the movie(like I love the band) but could not connect with the characters.

    For a minute there I thought you meant the comedy awhile ago, stupid silly but for me funny as hell. This rocket man has not even peaked my interest. No desire to see shows about famous stars.
