Saturday Matinee: Flying High With The Rocketeer!

rocketeerEvery Saturday I find a movie or clip that I think will appeal to the fans of this blog. Since most of you enjoy action/adventure, I tend to focus on something that falls into that category. This week we’re looking at a fan-made homage to Dave Stevens’ classic The Rocketeer. This video is so awesome, I’d pay to see a full-length version. For those who don’t remember, The Rocketeer was a comic book creation of superstar Dave Stevens and the character was featured in a live-action Disney flick that, while I found enjoyable, was generally considered a bust at the box office.

But check this out and tell me that The Rocketeer doesn’t deserve a chance to fly again!

  1. In my opinion The Rocketeer, and Sky Captain, and a few others bring something to the movie, and comic, and even prose tables that few other things do. They bring you the romantic notion of a gentler time when heroes were heroic not tragic, but not perfect. They remind you that there is indeed a line in the sand, that enemies must be vanquished and that the heroes expectation of getting the girl is perfectly acceptable. They bring you back to a place and time before the world became ashamed of its innocence… I’d love to write something like this.
