Ep. 278: Classics Catch-Up (or) Hot Garbage? -- "The Rocketeer" (1991) / "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" (2004)
The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are looking backwards to a time that was looking forward, dreaming of the future and all the fun adventures we'd have battling robots and possibly Nazis. The guys are looking at Disney's 1991 adventure movie "The Rocketeer" or this week's classic and the throwback to adventures of old for the cult movie, 2004's "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow."
