Five Favorite Films with Elton John

Summary

In the pantheon of popular music, few artists have been as celebrated and enduring as Sir Elton John. The Grammy/Oscar/Tony winner is also a Kennedy Center honoree, a Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer, and a Commander of the Order of the British Empire. And, with lyricist Bernie Taupin, John has crafted some of pop's most iconic ? and best-selling ? music. However, John is hardly one to rest on his laurels; he still plays scores of concerts each year, and a long-gestating passion project, the animated comedy Gnomeo and Juliet, finally hits theaters Friday. In an interview with Rotten Tomatoes, Sir Elton shared his favorite films, and discussed the making of Gnomeo and why it's still a thrill for him to hear his old songs. Back to Article

Maybe I should've rephrased my comment by saying something that because he's a legendary, talented singer! And, my intentions for my reviews was to get into films or be a part of that industry, which is more than what most musicians do, and by submitting reviews may provoke some kind of discussion about films! Nothing wrong about that!

This is no different than asking 'Bill Gates' or 'Donald Trump' what their five favorite films are since they're more comfortable with they're doing right now as opposed to being a part of an industry that bares no relevence in contributing to there financial success! I, at least wrote a few ideas on my own which can be more than what most successful musicians had done!

A quick check reveals that he's appeared in 4 movies (The Country Bears, Spice World, Tommy, Born to Boogie), appear on numerous TV shows including Will & Grace, helped take The Lion King and Billy Elliot movies from screen to stage, scored numerous films, and won an Academy Award. So I'd say he's very much a part of the industry.

Feb 11 - 12:56 PM

More successful as a musician, though! As a person who loves music as well, if I had the same passion as Sir Elton John's notoriety about music, I'd be more curious about the origins or opinions about some of his songs such as "Mama Can't Buy Me Love", "Danial" or even "Levon" as well as other music artists but a man can only do so so much! For the time being, I chose films!

"Tommy" was about "The Who" a wonderful LP and CD I have at home, "Spice World" unsuccessful film about the Spice Girls inspired from "A Hard Day's Night" which can help me nothing, "The Country Bears" cartoon for 5 year olds, "Born to Boogie" is something I never even heard before but don't care and because of Elton's successful well known musical status can open doors on other areas into his sitcom appearances! Elton was paid for all that you mentioned, and the two stage from screen I suspect only served as an investor!

I am familiar with all four movies but thanks for the summations. I was simply trying to point out that someone with such close ties to the movie industry, in my opinion, is more than qualified to discuss their favorite films.

Feb 11 - 02:03 PM

Brad Hadfield

As far as musicians being part of an industry that bares no relevance to the financial success of a movie? I think the Bee Gees would disagree. Saturday Night Fever, Grease, Dirty Dancing, Purple Rain, The Bodyguard...to name just a few.

Feb 11 - 02:09 PM

Dave J

Dave J

That's your opinion but there seems to be a trend here where everytime there's a successful musician happening, they're usually encouraged to transition their known 'status' or their notoriety to doing someting different, in this case it's films! Justin Timberlake and Jon Bon Jovi, also included on to this list is Dwayne Johnson who started as a WWE wrestler, now wants to only do films- these people didn't start off as actors or movie writers but as other forms of entertainment while at the same time Oscar winning Actors or actresses transitioned to produce music like Jeff Bridges making a CD with T Bone Burnett, and Sissy Spacek who made an LP after "Coal Miners Daughter". There's nothing with that but sometimes it's best to stick what you do best since alot of other well known musicians attempted this feat and were not always so successful!

Feb 11 - 02:27 PM

Dave J

You can accept Elton John's five favs, but how about someone else other than Elton like Madonna or Austailian pop singer Kylie Minogue, the dreadful Paris Hilton and then there's Justin Bieber whose already starting to exercise his star status by starring in his fair share of televison stcoms such as CSI! How many more films does Bieber have to star in before being asked what his five favs films are! What more can these musicians tell you about films what you don't know yourself and more!

Feb 11 - 02:50 PM

Dave J

Dave J

Also, those movies that you mentioned are labelled as 'musicals', aren't they! In which directors have more of a hand than the music artists themselves, who work with directors who're making them because Prince can't direct "Purple Rain" on his own!

Feb 11 - 03:29 PM

Brad H.

Brad Hadfield

I'll give you Grease, but Saturday Night Fever, Dirty Dancing, Bodyguard...those are not musicals. Music just plays a big part in them, and contributed to their success. Footloose, Top Gun - also heavily supported by music but not musicals. However, since you brought it up, there ARE movie musicals - which proves just how closely movies and music can be related.

Feb 11 - 05:29 PM

Also, there's a major difference between most of the 'users' here on this site than say successful musicans, other forms of artists such as novelists, even sport legends such as Madden and Jordon, and that is a continuation discussion about films or a love of films here, especially from movie critics who can help oneself to be a part of that industry! That is why they're film schools here, and if you don't understand that then you're more naive than I thought! My point is that I can get more insight about films by any of the 'users' here than by most successful musicans or WWE wrestlers or novelist on any era probably except Sting!

Elton John knows more about Hollywood than you think.

Feb 11 - 02:07 PM

Dave J

That's because of his musical notoriety, right! Which can open more doors than the people who devoted much of their lives in the film industry such as stand actors, writers and still haven't gotten anywhere! Listen, if Sir Elton wasn't a successful musician would he still be able to have those same opportunities! Be realistic!

Well, Elton's connections to anything to do with the public should be able to converse with anyone, because everybody heard of Elton John the musician! Even I wouldn't mind meeting Elton! And if you mean John Williams the music composer, in my opinion is not a good example because he works with film directors how music has to be done- he contributes into inhancing films which is something Mr Elton is not good at, as far as I know! And I have John Willliams CDs and LPs both the instrumental guitarist as well as the conductor!

There's a little double standard here whereas if it's someone else who's unpopular such as Madonna, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus or other unpopular music artists listing their five favs, people 'wouldn't' defend them so much! And as I recall, Jennifer Aniston as well as other actresses also didn't fare so well here either! All I did was make one comment( which wasn't even negative), that I'd probably know more about films by the 'users' than by reading what Elton John had to say, all I can say is that it can get overwelming around here!

Madonna, Justin, Miley - unpopular? Depends who you ask. Either way, I'd still be interested in their 5 favorites. It could provide a good laugh, or could show that they have some depth despite bad choices of their own. I personally would love to see Madonna's five. She's been in a lot of movies - most not good - which makes me curious as to what she thinks IS good.

Surely seeing so much of his character in a public light part of the reason for asking about his favourite movies is to let us get a further, more personal insight into Elton John the person. I don't believe he is reviewing movies to create a greater understanding for the all knowing, such as yourself. Seeing as he's heavily involved with a cinematic release, i also felt that the idea of the article was to draw attention to this release, not just to get Sir Elton to do a random movie report. 16% Dave J. 14/2 ; A lack of humour creates a seemingly pretentious character driven by a mild case of megalomania. A base idea poorly executed lead this story in circles leaving us feeling dizzy and slightly ill.

What a great list. Every film is first rate. Godfather II is probably better than Godfather I but I just call it one film now.

Feb 10 - 03:54 PM

Andreas Babs

Agreed and agreed. I prefer II, but I have to watch both together. I also consider them one movie because they are just so perfect as a whole.

Elton has great taste. He seems so humble and he's one of the most renown pop musicians of all time. His answers felt so honest and with thought put into them (well, thought put into why he picked the films anyways). I didn't get the same impression with James Cameron's.

Feb 10 - 05:04 PM

If you read the article on Cameron he made the list on the fly...alot of the folks that are on here do. He was being interviewed on a press junket for Sanctum with only about 5 min. to give each interviewer. Thats the way most of these lists are made. Some people have more relaxed schedules than others and those are the lists that seem more fleshed out...for obvious reasons.

Have you seen the Godfather Saga?

Feb 10 - 07:20 PM

Roman Zolanski

Gaylord Focker

NO. You're wrong. Not all these movies are first rate. "The Exorcist" is my pick for most overrated film of all time. I know a lot of you love "The Exorcist" but to me it's just nonsense. Now "The Omen", and "Damian: The Omen II", and "Rosemary's Baby" one the other hand, they are the films about Satan that you want to see. Not "The Exorcist"...that just comes off as cheap and tacky, offensive, smutty, etc.

Feb 11 - 02:08 PM

Gaylord Focker

No, if you want to see a riot, go to Egypt. Anyway, The Exorcist is in MY opinion the most overrated movie of all time. Hilariously, it's supposed to be based on a true story! Yet when you look at the most cursory details of the story, it has nothing in common with the film! Right, a demon girl with a cross asking her Mom to "rape me! Lick me! fuck me with this cross!" and then she starts stabbing her vagina with said cross...Bahaha! That is nothing but cheap, nasty sensationalism...B-grade soft porn, and it conjurs none of the actual horrifying, creepy religious terror of say, the cemetary scene from The Omen - one of the scariest scenes I've seen.

Feb 11 - 03:06 PM

Shiva the God of Death

Noah F

The Exorcist is supposed to be that way. You know it was based off a novel? You are in no position to say whether something like that it fake, because you have never seen a real exorcism. William Friedkin, director of Exorcist (and French Connection), is a serious director, and I'm sure he and Blatty (author), did their fair share of research before doing this.

Feb 11 - 03:18 PM

dethburger

dethburger hates Flixster

I saw both the Omen and The Exorcist when they came out. People were passing out in The Exorcist. The Omen, while a great horror film, did not have even close to the same impact.

Read what Blatty has to say about the scenes in The Exorcist and their source material sometime.

Next time, don't state opinion as fact...especially when most folks would disagree with said opinion.

Feb 11 - 03:24 PM

Roman Zolanski

Gaylord Focker

In MY opinion - and this is just me speaking - The Exorcist opened up the slash and gore type of horror, paving the way for the likes of Wes Craven, Toby Hooper, and the likes. I'm not saying the Nightmare movies and the Freddy movies are bad, I'm just saying they are the slash and gore type of fare that I pick up in The Exorcist. When I compare it to The Omen, I think that The Exorcist is about as subtle as a crucifix in the cervix - which is exactly what The Exorcist gave us. I don't even think of the Exorcist as a well-written and directed movie. If people passed out watching it, I don't blame them. Seeing a little girl growling and begging her Mommy to give her cunninglingus and insert a crucifix in her, it is shocking. But the moment in The Omen when they open the child's mother's grave and find the jackal skeleton, and then the demon dogs are there, that is true horror. In my opinion.

Feb 11 - 06:26 PM

dethburger

dethburger hates Flixster

Fair enough Zoo. I respect your point of view but I do disagree.

One fyi though...The scene in the Omen that really flipped people out at the time was the beheading. Nothing like that had ever been seen before in major Hollywood film.

Feb 11 - 08:55 PM

Big Brother

The Exorcist was all those things you say, but it also backed the shocks and gore up with a terrifying premise and a set up that made it believable. Do you really think Satan would ask them for tea and crumpets? I think shocking and horrifyingly disturbing are probably two adj that most people expect from a demonic possession.

Feb 12 - 05:13 PM

Roman Zolanski

Gaylord Focker

Oh and before I forget, Rosemary's Baby - the dream sequence is - in MY opinion - arguably the most genuinely disturbing sequences in cinema.

BTW before you guys start hollering about "Toby" Hooper, hahaha...I put that in as a red herring. I know his name is interchangeable, Tobe or Toby. Just like his namesake, Tobe[y] Maguire :p

Good list, Sir Elton John. I agree with him with the comment about The Godfather Part II. It was the best of the trilogy, IMO. I always found it shocking that Al Pacino never won an Academy Award for Best Actor with Godfather Part II. It's his finest perfomance, alongside his unforgettable portrayal as Tony Montana in Scarface.

Dog Day Afternoon was an amazing movie, the motivations of Pacino's character and the honest and sincere manner with which they are revealed to the audience are quite simply outstanding. His acting/performance along with Chris Sarandon was absolutely top-notch.
