    you have to disconnect your brain for the premise to work. 
    That's true for any opera or musical. Most people don't burst into song in everyday life.
    wait ... what !!!???
    Mamma Mia is not social realism or political commentary ??

    FWIW, his recent autobiography is terrific.
    Haven't seen the film, but am hell bent for reading the book.

    Ah, I was referring to the film "Yesterday" with that comment. Seen it/heard of it? Basically the world suddenly forgets that the Beatles ever existed - apart from one man who's a struggling musician.

    i just watched Rocketman, finally.  damn was i floored.  i don't really like musicals, either, generally speaking, but this was very well done.  i thought Taron Egerton did a fantastic job.  also, Robb Stark looks pretty good in a black suit!  lol  apologies if this has been discussed before.  i used the search function and didn't find a thread on it
