At the Heart of Gold - doco about Dr Larry Nasser who abused hundreds of girls as doc for the US gymnastic team - is very good.
Where can we catch that Scotty?

I only wish that was the end of the Avengers & Marvel altogether. What an overblown, boring, long winded, farewell to a bunch of side characters that we should care about that film was. Could have cut the length in half & nobody would notice.

Just saw it absolutely brilliant. Taron Edgarton was amazing as Elton.
Thanks mainlandy. Might buy some tickets. Looks like a must-watch. Just read he's not happy with some gay scenes been censored or cut out for the Russian release.

I thought it was pretty good & worth seeing. Brilliant a stretch. But I hope we don't see too many more music movies.

Has anyone watched Rocketman?
Saw it last night. Preferred Bohemian Rhapsody for a couple of reasons, however, still a very good show. (Unlike Malik, Egerton actually does the singing!) He clearly had a troubled relationship with his parents - and drugs - which he had no problems laying bare.

The film did highlight the absolute genius of John and Taupin as a team.

And I learn that at one time, 1 in 20 records sold IN THE WORLD were by Elton John. Hard to comprehend - in an era of Stones, Zeppelin etc...

Won’t be lining up for the proposed Boy George biopic?


I watched a very good biopic on sbs on demand the other day called Control which was about Joy Division lead singer Ian Curtis.

Thanks luke. I've been a fan of Sir Reginald and his close mate Taupin since I was a kid. Loved just about every song they did. Must watch film for me.

I know Bohemian Rhapsody's bigger and Malek did a good job, but I still can't see the real Freddie I want to see or hear in that film.

I thought Rocketman didn't really work.

I found the musical nature of the production made it feel like a series of shorts rather than a coherent biography.

Even for a casual Elton John fan the liberties with detail were very prominent.

Always Be My Maybe - patchy but kinda liked it. Definitely not Keanu's best movie but could be the movie where his acting skills are at their limited best.

Yesterday was great fun. Primarily because I got to listen to 10+ Beatles songs. Highlights for me - Back in the USSR and Help and a 'song-off' contest with Ed Sheeran, using Long and Winding Road was hilarious.

The idea is quirky, the writing was ~7/10, but the hero - The Beatles' music - is just fantastic. Those guys were just out of this world
