Egerton glitters in glossy, conventional ‘Rocketman’

Whatever you say about Dexter Fletcher’s glossy, glittering Elton John blinged-out biopic “Rocketman ,” a shiny sequin of a movie, it doesn’t lack for sparkle. Like its flamboyant subject, it’s a movie outfitted to the nines in dazzle and verve, even if it’s gotten all dressed ...
