    Rocketman

    ★★

    Let me preface this by saying I've never been an Elton John fan, despite growing up in the 70s. I may have liked a couple of songs (and two of them were covers), but that's about it. Directed by the guy who sorta directed BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY (another film I'm lukewarm on).

Still getting used to Chonkzilla, but…

    That Guy Dick Miller

    ★★★★

    I'll flat out say it: if you don't know who Dick Miller then you have no business calling yourself a film fan. This documentary covers Miller's life in three stages. In the first stage he winds up in California and becomes an actor, mainly with director Roger Corman. Miller becomes both a lead (ROCK ALL NIGHT, WAR OF THE SATELLITES and, his most iconic role, A BUCKET OF BLOOD) and a memorable supporting actor (LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS). When Corman…
