| If rami got an oscar and taron doesn't I will riot!
This is twice the movie 'bohemian rhapsody' was. It had everything BR lacked-drama, consequences, everything. It's not 'a star is born' (will Forever be mad bradley got screwed) but it's pretty close. I felt a lump in my chest almost from the start of the movie from how devastated I felt for Poor Elton. Of course you're going to wonder how much is embellishment for sympathy for John, but the same was true of 'bohemian rhapsody'. Queen protected Freddie to such an extent it made for a dull movie. There were some moments in the film I felt weren't fleshed out but maybe they didn't need to be. I can't say much without spoiling the film but it really is fantastic. That being said, like others have said, it's a true musical. It's not a biopic with concert moments sprinkled in. If you can't handle the songs speaking as dialogue, not the film for you.
