From the moment I saw the first trailer for Rocketman, I knew I had to see this film in theaters. In my heart, I knew this biopic would be magical. My expectations were beyond high as I entered the theater. The film did not disappoint. By the time we left, I felt beyond energized. Elton John immediately put on in the car. The words I wanted to say about the film started to race through my mind with urgency. One word came to mind. One term has remained with me since.

What is your favorite musical?
Considering that the challenge I chose to do was was a thirty day challenge, I felt the need to challenge myself in this thirty-one day month. Some would probably say that was when I played catch up last weekend, but nope. I was determined to come up with a subject to write about for day thirty-one.

This was due in good part because they were both on one of the movie channels and played back to back and because I love this film. My cousin Tiffany showed me this film for the first time and I believe I kept her VHS copy of the film until my dad bought me my own copy. I basically held her copy of Grease 2 hostage when we were younger. Should I regret that? No. Should I feel bad for this? Probably so, but when you are looking for a dream on a mean machine with hell in his eyes you don’t play by the rules! Continue reading “What is your favorite guilty pleasure movie?”
