Just got back from seeing it & daughter liked it. I found the first 10 mins a struggle & some of the rest difficult to follow at times so cannot recommend it personally. I am sure Elton fans will have different opinions

I read it's received very mixed reviews... I would watch it when it reaches the TV screen but don't think I would see it at the cinema.
Although I used to like Elton John, I think I prefer to dance to the music rather than watch him.
It is I, LeClerc :lol:

Good point & perhaps a good decision. I was disappointed not to hear some of my favourite songs but the film played heavily into his relationship with his parents. There were a lot of things that I did not know about him so some might find this interesting

Elton has committed to 300+ around the world dates in the next 2 years. Not bad for a 72 year old. Wish this song was in the film, or perhaps I just missed it but you get a taste of of his impersonators voice, Taron Egerton
