Rocketman Soars into 4K and Blu-ray

GameStop, Inc.

Every time I hear the title, Rocketman, I instantly think of the William Shatner cover from his spoken-word album in the 1970s.

The ultimate truth is that movie musicals terrify me more than horror movies. Sitting there watching Rocketman under a blanket had me cringing every time dialogue introduced the next song and the next three plus minutes of singing, but I was able to put aside my fears and watch the film with an open mind and I must say that Taron Egerton as Elton John was quite impressive, especially with Egerton singing all those songs which, is not an easy task.

The two had worked together previously on Kingsmen: The Golden Circle and although I am not sure that’s where their friendship had began, it is a pretty safe bet to make that it was there.

John’s life is definitely depicted far more flamboyant than Freddie Mercury’s was in Bohemian Rhapsody, but then again, this was strictly about Elton John and not an entire band.  The costume designs, cinematography and all around story were great and it takes a lot for me to praise a musical, so that means if this is you genre of choice, I’m pretty sure you’re going to love it.

Egerton is a great actor and by far my favorite movie of his is Eddie the Eagle, but performance-wise, I would have to say this is definitely the movie that will get him noticed for bigger budget films as he went all out to play John and made sure you knew that he was channeling the living legend.

Rocketman comes to 4K, Blu-ray, DVD on August 27, 2019 and is already available on Digital.
