It's a metaphor. Soon to embody a catchphrase in Washington: "Heh Donald....duck!"

I actually totally agree with Elton. The score was fantastic an improvement but I was severely underwhelmed by the songs. They lost the energy and sung off pitch. Especially I Just Can’t Wait to be King and Hawkins Matara, and not in a parody on purpose way, several notes are very obviously way out of tune.

Are you a choral director?

So... Should the opinions of celebrities be disregarded entirely because they're celebrities or, God forbid, if they've worn an outfit as a joke?

I'll never understand this way of thinking.

Obviously they should only care about random fanman rantings on specialist forums .

Sorry, didn't mean to step on the toes of PEOPLE magazine fans.
I have to admit, I defer my toilet paper choices to what the cast of FRIENDS use. Surely they have my best interests in mind.

That's pretty tame for Elton, isn't it?

It looks like it was during the Taupin-free years.
Hard to be sure without looking it up.

Elton would be the first one to chuckle at it, though.
I love Elton.

I think this is from around 1980.

A Single Man from 1978 is Elton's only Taupin-free album.

However, the late 1970s-early 1980s was Elton's "glasses-free" era.

I'm OK with some of the juggling of facts for dramatic purposes; I just felt that the Rocketman film failed to capture what I know about Elton's life and career trajectory, nor did it "get" the spirit of his music. Where was the fun? Where was the excitement of Elton's "imperial phase" in the mid-1970s? Why the by-the-numbers biopic cliches? The movie just did not work for me - I found BoRhap to be better, despite its flaws and cliches.

I always thought rocking a mullet was a good look for him.
If you look at the videos for "Wrap Her Up" or thereabouts, somehow it works for him.

I generally agree with this sentiment. I'm a huge Elton John fan, and I felt ROCKETMAN failed to capture anything of his spirit; and failed even more in problematizing the truly dramatic moments in his life. So safe, so much Oscar bait (so was BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, for that matter). Then again, musical biopics like that are extremely hard to get right. I'm trying to think of a film that managed, but I can't think of one off the top of my head.

As for the LION KING feature film, I haven't yet seen it. I'm evaluating based on the soundtrack, which didn't really offer anything worthwhile. It's as if Zimmer has moved away from that particular style, and has problems approximating it. The highlights of the soundtrack are those that are already available, either on the OST or the Broadway soundtrack.
