“Rocketman”: rock ‘ n ‘ roll trip through the corridors of someone else’s soul

It seems that the era of musical biopics is beginning again in the film industry. But” Rocketman ” (Rocketman) has one huge difference from most of these pictures: the main character of this film is alive. Moreover, Elton John is a producer of a movie about himself, very deeply involved in its production.

Comparison with “Bohemian Rhapsody”, which took a couple of Oscars last year, is inevitable — a very small gap has passed between the films, and the Director is the same. Dexter Fletcher took over Bryan singer’s chair, finished shooting “Rhapsody” at the end of the summer of 2018, and in September he took over “Rocketman”.And the first shots, to be honest, make you roll your eyes from self-repetition: the film begins with the passage of the main character in a stage costume along the corridor of the concert venue, flavored with slow-mo and a slightly slowed-down version of the rhythmic hit.

“Spider-man: away from home”: what do I want to be when I grow up?

Another marvel movie comic, spider-Man: far From Home, had to perform several tasks. He should somehow smooth out the effect of the “Finale”, effectively launch a new phase in the history of this film universe and become no worse than the previous spider-man film, “Homecoming” (about how to become better “Through the universes”, there is no question).

“Away from home” comes out in the midst of high school graduates applying to universities, and the film’s main storyline intersects with this event a little. Peter Parker, a sixteen-year-old who has all thoughts only about a classmate, will have to choose how to live on-to remain a friendly neighbor spider-Man, who has time to study and friends, or take responsibility and become a full-fledged hero, on whose actions the fate of not the district, but the whole world depends.
