    Hi Lou, I always miss your shows on Wednesday night…work keeps me busy. I do love watching you all the time, you get me so excited and wishing I was sitting right there beside you all. Thanks for always uploading your videos :) Still wishing I was working for Disney somehow. Have a Magical Day ok. Lv Lucille :>)

  4. Cliff Secord should be played by…

    Anton Yelchin (the one that played Chekov in the new Star Trek)

  5. Given Alan Horn’s ‘history’ at WB, he’d be going with someone under contract with Disney who is an almost unknown. Under that presumption, I’d think Garrett Hedlund would be an excellent choice.

  6. While I loved Rocketeer. I cannot see how a remake would work. The specuall effects could get a little better, but not enough to justify a new movie. At least a remake. But finally a sequel would be good. Here’s the premise: Peavey kept the plans at the end of the movie. cliff went on to be a great pilot and married the girl had a son .

  7. But now there a problem (insert problem here) peavey (as he is want to do) tinkered with the design and improved the pack, built another but never told anyone. But the new crisis has caused him to call on Cliff’s son to become the rocketeer. Alan could reprise his role and even have cameos for the other players. So you get to pick two new up and comers for the lead roles. Bingo now there is your new movie.

  8. I just watched the Rocketeer for the first time last night and really liked it. I am curious, though, if anyone has read the comics. I wondered how closely the movie follows them, and maybe, they will play off of any differences to bring something new to a remake. Otherwise, it doesn’t seem like there is that much to improve upon. If you were going to go with a well known actor, I suggest Chris Pine he has proven he can play the good guy (Princess Diaries 2), he can play the hero (Star Trek).

  9. That was such a fun night being out of the box!
