Episode 36- The Rocketeer

I don’t know if any kid in 1991 didn’t see The Rocketeer, Disney’s throwback to the adventure serials of the 1930s and ’40s. We loved it at the time, but to be fair any movie with a jet-pack is like crack to children. It stars Billy Campbell, Jennifer Connelly, Timothy Dalton, Alan Arkin and  was directed by Rewatchability favourite Joe Johnston. Has The Rocketeer aged well like a fine wine, or has it aged poorly, like… like, a shittier wine? Why didn’t the Rocketeer ever change jackets? Why does Howard Hughes look like John Locke? Is everyone with a pencil-thin mustache a secret Nazi? To find out, download the link below, or better yet subscribe on iTunes!

Episode 25- Jumanji

Have you ever played a board game that’s tried to kill you? Well that’s just what happens to Robin Williams and Kirsten Dunst (and to a lesser extent Bonnie Hunt and some other kid) in 1995’s family adventure film Jumanji. Directed by Joe Johnston, who gave us other classic family fare such as The Rocketeer and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, it was a box office smash, spawning a TV cartoon series, and a real-life board game that supposedly doesn’t try to kill you. Does the movie still entertain almost 20 years later? Is this Robin Williams’ hairiest role? Who is awesomer David Allen Grier or LeVar Burton? We answer these questions and more (the answer to C is LeVar Burton) on this week’s Rewatchability!
