Default Re: OFFICIAL The Rocketeer Appreciation Thread

After Superman 1 this was my favorite superhero movie all the way up until the late 2000's. Just love it and nobody does early 20th century period pieces quite as well as Johnston does. You can just tell he loves it so much with this and October Sky and CA:TFA. Getting someone with that kind of enthusiasm would be crucial to doing any remake right. The Rocketeer just drips with a vibe/atmosphere that is awesome. It doesn't have the greatest action(it's fine just not stand out) but it's the over-all feel that is inescapable with this movie. Definitely a great one.
