Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Joe Johnston’s The Rocketeer is still the best movie he’s ever done. I like Cap a whole lot, but it felt like halfway through it was just a jumble of scenes mashing together to me. I didn’t feel the stakes of Hydra taking over and as a result the final act lacked a weight to pull me in.
The Rocketeer is very similar in pace and tone to Cap, but it doesn’t feel like it has the same problems for me. When Billy Campbell takes off for that zeppelin I was totally involved. Maybe it was because I was 10 years old when I saw the movie for the first time, but I’ll be damned if I don’t still feel that way when watching today.
Today’s pic from The Rocketeer features Timothy Dalton as the sleazy as can be Neville Sinclair trying to woo the incredibly luscious Jennifer Connelly. Pretty sure that’s Johnston standing behind Dalton as well.
