I saw "Rocketman" last night. It is very, very good and far more dramatic than I was expecting. Even though Taron Egerton looks nothing like Elton John, it takes about 4 seconds after he makes his grand entrance at the beginning of the film to convince you otherwise. One of the things I find amusing is the brouhaha about the sex scene and how it might be cut in order for the movie to get a PG-13 rating. The language alone guaranteed "Rocketman" was going to be rated R. Elton likes to swear... a lot. This is also not a 'linear' biography, the songs are not in sequence, rather, they are used to emphasize an emotional moment. Oh, and in case you're wondering, Egerton can sing, his vocal chops work quite well with the music. Isn't it nice to go see a movie about a legendary rock star and the lead actor sings all of the songs. One final note on this great film, I really did love that devil costume and how it was used.
Did the Idiot Jerk do anything yesterday? It's rare for him not to fart out some stupid shit, even on a Sunday.
Tomorrow I have to go back to work. Crap. For 2 whole days. I like this 2 days on, 2 days off schedule. Once the car is paid for, this is what it's going to be like.
Finally, E3 started yesterday in LA. That's when publishers announce upcoming games. The biggest splash was made by the studio CD Projekt Red. They gave us a release date yesterday for their next big game, Cyberpunk 2077... and the announcement was made by Keanu Reeves. I can not wait. A word of warning, there is language in this trailer.
