Bottom line: I can't understand why anyone would object to this movie being made. For one thing, it's not like the making of this movie means that the original movie is going to be wiped from reality. It's still out there to be seen and enjoyed.
But let's be realistic, it was never going to spawn a sequel. It would have been lovely if it did. But 20+ years down the line, with Bill Campbell far from being a box-office draw? No Way! Instead, we're getting a chance to start all over again. And trust me, if this sucks donkey testicle, no-one will be more critical than me. But as it is, we're getting a new Rocketeer movie. And a week ago, we didn't have a new Rocketeer movie. So as far as I'm concerned, that can only be a good thing.
