 Yeah, that isn't his finest work. In the movie however, it fit perfectly. I was prepared to hate Rocketman, but I thought it was great.

Anything's gotta be better than the Queen one. 

There was a movie called Rock Star a couple decades ago that I honestly thought was supposed to be a comedy, but after I'd watched it a few times and kept raving about this new Spinal Tap, someone told me it wasn't supposed to be funny. Bohemian Rhapsody was right in there...
 Ouch.
What really impressed me about Rocketman was Taron Egerton singing everything himself. Lip-syncing would have ruined it.

You still haunt the Hollywood section of the beach?  That, Pompano and a little spot in North Ft. Lauderdale were my 3 spots.

Not sure if this is the right place to put this but Ryan Zinke resigned with a letter he wrote using a dry red Sharpie.
 

 
I had a thermodynamic teacher who sprung a pop quiz on us early on a Saturday morning class (yeah, my mistake...).  I wasn't prepared and performed poorly. The Prof took a red sharpie and colored 95% of the front of the test page red, and in the remaining white corner he wrote 'over' with an arrow to the back.  On the back of the page he wrote 'WRONG'.  When passing the results out the next week neglected to give me my test back, he made a good show of his displeasure when he made me specifically come to the front of the room to retrieve it with everyone watching. 

 

Did that spur you to do better? 

I've heard similar horror stories from friends in engineering programs. A few of them were taking the same 101-level course in a huge auditorium when the professor handed back homework. Before he did, however, he called out the names of about five students and said, "Please come up to pick up your homework." As the five made their way forward through the packed hall, Prof picked up their work and tossed it on the floor, saying "You did not submit your work on time. Late homework will not be graded or accepted." 

I hope technical programs are kinder and gentler these days, but I wouldn't bet the farm on it.
