Junkfood Cinema Podcast: The Rocketeer

By  · Published on September 17th, 2015

Brian and Cargill soar to new heights, and at points during the show to new lows, as they discuss the sky-swashbuckling adventure flick The Rocketeer!

They chat about the stellar assembled team, the specificity of references that make up this weird pulp-pourri, and how Terry O’Quinn may be cinema’s greatest Howard Hughes! Sorry, Leo.

They also discuss the film in the context of the era in which it was released and how Captain America: The First Avenger would not have been the movie it was without The Rocketeer!

You should follow Brian (@Briguysalisbury), Cargill (@Massawyrm), and the show (@Junkfoodcinema).
