The best thing about Scott S. Kramer’s song parody is that his pal Joshua Elson sings and plays it really well.
Yes, the lyrics are on point about kids preferring the prequels, adults needing to forgive George Lucas, and the perils of online ticketing. But assuming one is not doing the Shatner rendition of “Rocketman,” none of that would matter if the singing were terrible.
It’s solid. All of it.
And NOW, Mr. Kramer, you may Shatner it for an encore.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
