    I can't recommend this movie enough. Except for a couple of short homosexual sex scenes I enjoyed it thoroughly. I haven't ever been a big Elton John fan, I think reason being that I heard his best music over a fairly long span of years and didn't consider his music as a whole. That's changed. I paused the movie in the middle and ordered a two cd set of his greatest hits.

    I never really considered the combination of Bernie Taupin's brilliant lyrics and Elton John's raucous, beautiful, highly skilled piano work and great floating vocals. My friend Carole Morris turned me on to it. You'll like it. It's on Amazon Prime for free but if you have to pay a little to watch it, do so.

    I watched it and enjoyed it, although I have never been an Elton John fan.

    No, couldn't watch it - he leaves me totally cold but obviously has a huge fan base

    Is it because he's a homosexual or do you just not care for his music? Am I being too nosy?

    Wondered if I should watch that. Not favorite music or singer but he does have some good things. I can always skip over the homo scenes.
