Many moons ago, I wrote this little piece about one of my favourite films: The Rocketeer. The 30s-style pulp adventure wasn't quite as successful as it could've been – opening opposite Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and Terminator 2 will do that – but I love it all the same. Read about it here: Movie Classics: The Rocketeer
I love Rocketeer, it’s pretty much the perfect post-Indiana Jones adventure movie. And it’s a terrible shame we never got a sequel – though we did at least get another retro comic-book adventure movie from director Joe Johnston in the form of Captain America: The First Avenger.
