This movie is a lot of fun. Howard Hughes is not amused by the Nazi plan. And really, if you have a rocket pack during WWII and don't use it to kill Nazis, there's something wrong with you.
RIP, Dave Stevens.
Why didn't he just shave?
Shit, he just died? Wow...that sucks. Didn't even know till I saw it mentioned here.
Joe Johnston, were you so afraid that the audience would side with the Nazis that you made your fictional Nazi propaganda show them as ominous aggressors?
Heute Europa, Morgens Die Sonnensistem.
I'm not a historian, but I'm pretty sure the Nazis wouldn't use villainous music for their own propaganda.
5 stars for Rocketeer.....very underappreciated film.
That would be a long and cold rocket pack flight across the Atlantic
It wouldn't have been as "cool" if the animation had shown them flying for 8+ hours and all pooping into the ocean while trying to eat sandwiches.
Laughing so hard at that comment.
Yes, you are hereby forgiven for trolling for jesus and being a gay.
couldn't the allies just... shoot those rocketeers down? it worked on the Luftwaffe
The Nazis would have all been crippled by permanent boners if they'd had jet packs.
Why do the villains always give away their secret plans to the good guys?
Rocketeer was a great movie. Made even greater by the fact that the urban legend about Disney making Nazi propaganda is now semi-true.
None of those Rocket Nazis have any weapons!
What are they gonna do just walk up and ask people nicely to surrender or else they'll fly around in the air in circles menacingly!?
once you saw the nazi had jetpacks, tell me you wouldn't sign up ASAP.
My favorite part was 0:14-0:26.
0:30-0:46 was also very moving.
