We finally pinpointed the beginning of the "curmudgeonly Alan Arkin" era.

This week, the "Second Run" crew and special guest Drew Taylor tackled 1991's superhero movie "The Rocketeer" starring Billy Campbell, Jennifer Connelly, Alan Arkin, and Timothy Dalton. Topics discussed include depictions of Howard Hughes in cinema, the movie's remaining footprint (or in one case "jetpack blast print") on current Disney properties, and an epic third act that rivals anything in "Indiana Jones" or "James Bond"

Up next is Rachel's pick, 2001's musical comedy quagmire "Josie and the Pussycats," starring Rachael Leigh Cook, Tara Reid, and Rosario Dawson.
