This week we dive into the world of Dave Stevens' The Rocketeer in the 1991 film directed by Joe Johnston. Starring Bill Campbell as the spitting image of Cliff Secord, a young stunt pilot in the late 1930's, taking on the villainous Nazi spy, Neville Sinclair, charmingly portrayed by Allen's second favorite James Bond, Mr. Timothy Dalton. The film is as family-friendly as it could be, but without once talking down to its audience and never once slipping into being stupid or silly. 

Also in this episode, we hate the radio and love Jennifer Connelly.

This week, hosts Allen Christian and Steven Granger spend most of the runtime of the film talking about entertainment in the 90's while realizing they're too old for this movie. Production-wise, Secret of the Ooze is leaps-and-bounds ahead of its predecessor, but at the same time fully succumbs to the cartooniness of the popular animated series. Divorced from the nostalgia, everything here is bad, but everything here is still a lot of fun.

Also on this episode, this movie and Vanilla Ice are accused of killing an entire cultural movement, Kevin Nash won't put anyone over, Big Daddy's gonna take Cool of you, and we remember when NBC were winners.

Hosts Allen Christian and Steven Granger truly suffer for this endeavor when they dredge the depths of the superhero genre and crack open a fresh Blu-ray of 21st Century Film's Captain America movie. Our second crossing with the infamous Menahem Golan, and thankfully our last, Captain America drives home everything that was wrong with his idea of hasty, cheap filmmaking. Starring Matt Salinger, this movie is a tidal wave of boring, and we emphatically discourage you from wasting your time.

It's 1990, and Warren Beatty's Dick Tracy, starring Beatty, Al Pacino, and Madonna, is the order of the week. Set inside a comic strip Chicago in 1938, the film is full of your typical gangster film tropes, but never slips into the despair of cliche. Beautifully designed, well shot, well acted, and passably written, Warren Beatty's pet project manages to be one of the few films to actually capture the look and feel of a comic strip. 

Also in this episode, James Caan gets shade, the Spider-Man newspaper strip gets all the hate it deserves and the Peanuts get praised as we realize our city's paper just wasn't cool enough to get a Dick Tracy syndicated strip, and a rabbit hole is tripped down in an attempt to research a Dick Tracy porn parody.
