“Rocketman” was much better than BoRap IMHO. BoRap = a serviceable but very sanitized version of the Queen/Mercury story. “Behind the Music” in film form. If you are a long time fan you already know it all and you know why Brian and Roger went this way: to keep the Queen brand alive & playing arenas worldwide instead of casinos in the USA. “Rocketman” - incredibly creative, interpretive telling of Elton John’s story. Honestly this is what a biopic looks like when the artist doesnt give a flying *f* about protecting a “legacy” or a “brand” and instead gives the filmmakers complete creative license to tell a story that goes beyond the usual “Behind the Music” format. It really captures the music, fashion, drugs, sex, etc...of the 60s through the 80s. The musical numbers are excellent and are there represent what was in his imagination at the time. One other thing...this movie is very accurate about the music business, how it works, and how the artist comes to be seen as a commodity by their management, label, etc...to be exploited to make money from no matter the effect on their health. TL;DR - BoRap is a safe, simple movie that tells a good story. The film equivalent of WonderBread, filling but empty. Rocketman is a incredibly entertaining and challenging movie that tells a “warts and all” story through various means. The film equiv of 7 grain bread, filling and full of different tastes.
