The Breakdown of 'Rocketman', 'Always Be My Maybe' and 'Rim of the World'

This week on The Movie Breakdown we've got three movie reviews to kick off your Monday right. The big theatrical release is the musical biopic of Elton John called Rocketman and yes, I make some comparisons to Bohemian Rhapsody. We also discuss the latest romcom from Netflix with the story about two best friends falling love in Always Be My Maybe. Then we review the children fighting aliens adventure in Rim of the World. We also are going to look at why some critics will change their opinion on a movie. From there, we discuss if actors should do their own stunts or not. As always, it was a great time recording the show and if you enjoyed it, please spread the word to other movie fans.

Reminder that you can subscribe either to The Movie Breakdown feed (a subscription link is at the top right hand of this site) or on iTunes (if you enjoy the show, please help us by giving us a five star review).
