Movie Of The Week September 9, 2011: The Rocketeer (1991)

Welcome to a brand new  Movie Of The Week, a new weekly feature at the Blog!  How does this differ from Trailer Park, well one it is weekly and two I hope to get interaction from YOU, the Comicpalooza fans.  I want you to email me a pick for Movie Of The Week, and I will use them and post those picks as the weeks go by!  Email me your picks at!  Start thinking of your Movie Of The Week and send it to me!

The Rocketeer (1991)

Synopsis: A young pilot stumbles onto a prototype jetpack that allows him to become a high flying masked hero.

Released June 21, 1991
Director: Joe Johnston
Domestic Box Office Gross: $46 Million
Running Time:  1 Hour 48 Minutes
Starring: Billy Campbell & Jennifer Connelly

Why You Should Watch It:  First off, it's actually really good!  It's directed by Joe Johnston before he ever thought of making a Captain America film 20 years later, and it's a fun throwback to old fashioned super hero action films!  The film is hitting Blu-Ray soon too so more the reason to watch it now
