I recently rewatched The Rocketeer and it is amazing how well the film hold up after 20 years. A couple of the flight scenes have slightly dodgy special effects, but other than that I would put ir right alongside any of today's superhero blockbusters. I was thumbing through my Dave Stevens Rocketeer hardcover as I watched it and it really is the comic coming right to life - the characters and designs in the movie are all spot on. Between it and Captain America: The First Avenger, Joe Johnston has made two of my all time favorite comic flicks ever.
