GI: Retaliation acts as both a sequel and soft reboot to The Rise Of Cobra. And it’s out with the old, Channing Tatum and the like and in with the new with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson plus friends. We get into what works with the sequel including more Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow in addition to the origin of the one million dollar Bruce Willis payday. Thanks for watching our Caravan Of Garbage review!
With Snake Eyes getting his own origin movie it’s time to revisit the Snake Eyes origin movie, 2009’s GI Joe The Rise Of Cobra. A blatant Hasbro attempt to cash in on the success of the Transformers movie it seems Channing Tatum’s Duke go up against the might of Destro, Cobra Commander and other people in goofy costumes with the back of GI Joe, an elite fighting force of weirdos with bizarre weapons and a green screen base. Also nanites and the President becomes the guy from The Mummy or whatever. It’s a great movie and everyone thought so. Thanks for listening!
Iron Man 3 in 2013 landed red hot off the back of the The Avengers. Promising to delve into Tony Stark’s PTST resulting from the Invasion Of New York along with the revelation about the villain that was supposedly behind it all, The Mandarin. I mean it does do these things but not with some twists and turns along the way in addition to some very odd choices. Despite some minor controversy it does a lot of things right which we get right into in this final film in the Iron Man trilogy, this is our Caravan Of Garbage review.
The turnaround between Iron Man and Iron Man 2 was shockingly quick in an attempt to cash in on the first, build the universe and set the wheels in motion for The Avengers. All of this results in a sequel that doesn’t reach the heights of the first but is not without it”s redeeming moments. Justin Hammer, Whiplash, the new War Machine, that racetrack bit, a boird, some of this works. Anyways here’s our Caravan Of Garbage review, thanks for watching!
Who new upon it’s release in 2008 that Iron Man original Iron Man would kick off the biggest movie franchise of all time. The MCU is now twenty plus movies deep but it all began with Marvel’s relatively small independently budgeted project. Acting as the introduction of Tony Stark and the revival of Robert Downy (more…)
There’s nothing less exciting than a sequel featuring no original cast members. HOWEVER. Tokyo Drift, the third entry in the Fast Saga is not without merit. It introduces Lucas Black’s Jack Henley or something but more importantly Sung Kang as beloved fan favorite Han. I like it. It’s a good movie. You don’t even know (more…)
2 Fast 2 Furious was rushed into cinemas to capitalise on the success of The Fast & The Furious two years earlier. But at some cost. Paul Walker returns but gone is Vin Diesels Dom Toretto and in is Tyrese Gibson’s Roman Something. This time it’s an undercover operation or something plus James Remar is (more…)
2001’s The Fast & The Furious kicked off a franchise in a way that absolutely nobody saw coming. Shooting both Paul Walker and Vin Diesel into super stardom the super car racing/Point Break knock off is in many ways vastly different from what it has become. But there’s still the bones of it in there, family, Corona, d*ck swinging, rappers turned actors. Anyways here’s our Caravan Of Garbage review, thanks or the support!
Look. We all agree that The Mask was an absolute flawless classic 1994 screwball comedy. Which is why it came as a shock to all that the 2005 sequel Son Of The Mask is also bad. Sorry I mean just bad. This time Jamie Kennedy, plus a baby plus a dog take on the roll (more…)
The Mask from 1994 was extremely cutting edge for the time. Blending live action with modern CGI animation it managed to bring a classic cartoon aesthetic to life plus couple with Jim Carey’s lead performance it became a monster hit which is still beloved to this day. Anyways one of us doesn’t think it’s very (more…)
Space Jam 1996 mashed together two of the 90’s biggest phenomenons, the Looney Tunes and NBA Chicago Bulls Basketball Slam Drunk After Doing A Big Jump Michael Jordan. This time he faces his greatest challenge yet, acting against a green screen whilst having pretend he’s playing basketball with Bugs Bunny against the Monstars so they don’t end up on the moon or something. All in all it”s aged weirdly and we didn’t like it. Thanks for supporting our Caravan Of Garbage reviews.
Saw III managed to wrap up the Saw franchise in what many consider to be a return to form for the series. Except it wasn’t the end but let’s just say it is because there’s so many of these and quite frankly we need a break.
Anyways this sees the return of Jigsaw, Shawnee Smith, Donnie Whalberg, and Leigh Whannell in what amounts to a pretty decent follow up. Anyways this is our Caravan Of Garbage review and next week we have to do Space Jam so that’s good I guess.
Saw II took everything that was great about the first in the series, turned it up to eleven but also made sure it came out not quite as good. And whilst that is certainly the general consensus it’s not without some interesting Saw-narios. This time Donnie Whalberg of Whalbergers fame comes face to face with Jigsaw himself in a game of cat and mouse so needlessly complex and impossible to win it sends everyone into a real tiz. Anyways we talk about Saw II in this. Did I need to say that I mean you get it. Thanks for the support.
Do you remember the movie Saw? When it came out people were like omg did you see the movie Saw? Well considering we”re getting another entry with the movie Spiral in 2021 it’s time to revisit the first three films from the six hundred that were made starting with the low budget horror classic that (more…)
After the dreadful and unintentional conclusion in Mortal Kombat: Annihilation the franchise in live action lay dormant for nearly 20 years. That is until the Mortal Kombat: Legacy web series.
Aiming to be a gritty reboot of the franchise as a web series it reintroduces the characters of Sub Zero, Scorpion, Jax, Sonya, Liu Kang, Johnny Cage and others but it’s world but also absolutely not. Not even close. Anyways this is our Caravan Of Garbage review. Thanks for listening!
What a big bunch of crap this is. Mortal Kombat Annihilation took everything that was good about the first one (not much) and made an infinitely worse version. Just an absolute pile of dreck. Some much of this doesn’t work it’s astounding. It’s pretty good though. Just kidding it’s an awful movie and if you like it you’re an idiot. Thanks for listening!
Before Mortal Kombat makes its way back into cinemas let’s take a look at the movie that started it all!
The 1995 adaptation is often considered the high watermark for video game to movie adaptations which is credited for it’s close adherent to the source material. All your favorites are here, Liu Kang, Sonya Blade, Johnny Cage, Sub Zero, Scorpion, Shang Tsung and more! Does it hold up? Yeah I guess? Thanks for listening.
People may be loving Zack Snyder’s Justice League but little known fact but not really Smallville introduced a very early days live action version of the team in the Season 6 episode, Justice. Featuring a team up between Clark Kent, Cyborg, Aquaman, Impulse and Green Arrow it certainly is something and a series of events (more…)
Before King Kong takes on Godzilla in 2021 let’s take a trip back to the year 2005 for the remake of the 1933 classic King Kong. After the success of the Lord Of The Rings Trilogy Peter Jackson was given the opportunity to take a shot at one of his all time favourite properties. It’s (more…)
The Falcon & The Winter Soldier is bringing small screen Marvel espionage back to the small screen. A tradition I dare say began back in 1998 when one David Michael Hasselhoff took on the role of Nick Fury in the full length television movie Nick Fury: Agent Of Shield. With a swath of legendary Marvel (more…)
It’s nice to cap of the Christopher Reeve series of Superman movies by circling back to Superman II as it was originally intended. With all of the original scenes edited back into the film (with a few minor editions) and the removal of all the Richard Donner nonsense this presents as an entirely different film. (more…)
Superman 4 A Quest For Peace was heralded as a return to form for the Chris Reeve movies. But it was…not. Despite bringing back Gene Hackman and the introduction of a nuclear powered supervillian things took a turn with budget concerns, wonky story beats and a brutal edit. Things didn’t end well for the series (more…)
Superman 3 is considered by many to be the Superman 3 of he Superman franchise. Lex Luthor is gone along with most of the cast and Christopher Reeve this time plays second fiddle to Richard Pryor is a movie so bafflingly stupid it makes me question my own sanity and if movies have ever been (more…)
Building off the good work done in Superman The Movie in 1978, Superman II this time around brings the action with three evil Kryptonian villains lead by General Zod. However this movie was absolutely riddled with problems all stemming from the firing of original director Richard Donner who was replaced with Richard Lester. It’s a wild ride. Thanks for listening!
Superman The Movie from 1978 is considered the gold standard in superhero film making. Setting trends that resonate to this very day the Richard Donner classic introduced the world to Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder as well as bringing a air of legitimacy to the DC Comics universe with the casting of Marlon Brando and Gene Hackman. It’s also kind of very silly. This is out Caravan Of Garbage review, thanks for listening!
Due to popular demand and shear force of numbers we have returned to finish off the final episodes of 2017’s Inhumans. A terrible show by most metrics with the less said about it the better. And yet here we are. With a second episode. Hours wasted watching, recording and editing. Thanks for listening.
Caravan Of Garbage is back for a new year and what better way to kick off 2021 than with the MCU’s biggest failure, Marvel’s Inhumans. Beginning life as a movie before being shifted to ABC Television (with a brief stop over at IMAX) it’s…just not very good. Why did they do this? I mean we (more…)
Wonder Woman 1984 hits at a time when the character has never been more popular or mainstream. But go back a decade and the character of Diana Prince was being lined up for her own series with everything you love about the character! Or at the very least some of the things you love about the character and some other weird inclusions. Bad show though. You’ll see. Thanks for listening!
Concluding a look into the horrifying The Santa Clause universe trilogy we’re covering The Escape Clause, objectively the worst one.
Absolutely horrendous implications surrounding childbirth, curses, time travel, death, it’s a nightmare. But thanks for the support and for watching.
We’re right back into covering Tim Allen’s Santa Clause trilogy with the second in the trilogy, uniquely titled The Santa Clause 2.
And here’s the thing, he’s older, he’s wiser, he has an evil robot doppelganger. Also his son is evil and he needs a wife look there’s a lot going on. Thanks for watching!
Tim Allen’s The Santa Clause bucked the trend of Christmas movies at the time by telling the story of a Father Christmas where if you can kill the previous one then I guess you’re Santa. It’s a weird universe so we’re going to get stuck into all three starting with the 1994 original. Thanks for (more…)
Leading up to Ahsoka Tano’s live action debut in The Mandalorian Chapter 13 we take a look back and one of her most significant appearances in Twilight Of The Apprentice from Star Wars Rebels. It features the confrontation with her former master Anakin Skywalker now Darth Vader on the Sith world of Malachor. Thanks for (more…)
Batman The Animated Series is often considered one of the best iterations of the DC Universe with the introduction of characters such as Harley Quinn and reinvention of others like M Freeze. SPEAKING OF this week we cover the episode Heart Of Ice and his follow up appearances in things such as Sub Zero and (more…)
Quibi is dead, but it’s legacy will last a…month. Today with the help of Sam and Zach from Aunty Donna (Netflix series out now) we take a look at The Golden Arm, the first in what was to be 50 chilling stories from the 50 States Of Fright anthology series. Anyways it’s hilarious. Thanks for (more…)
The Mandalorian Season 2 is rumored to bring back a number of animated Star Wars characters into live action. In the lead up to the live action appearance of Ahsoka Tano we revisit the final four episodes of The Clone Wars covering the events of Order 66 from a different perspective, Darth Maul wrecking shop (more…)

Judge Dredd brought the classic 2000 AD comic was first bought to life in live action though the 1995 Sylvester Stallone movie. As far as a Judge Dredd movie it’s…pretty far off the mark but not without some interesting world building and cod pieces. Some even consider it a cult classic. Some people think it’s (more…)
Mission Impossible 3 is the often forgotten entry in the series. Considered the big break for J.J. Abrams and coming out in the bizarre couch jumping era of Tom Cruises career it fleshes out the series in interesting ways and in many ways sets things back on for the franchise. Also, Phillip Seymore Hoffman so (more…)
Mission Impossible 2 is such a bizarre follow up to the first entry. Sure it has a lot of the series staples including masks, espionage and Tom Cruise but the John Woo centric action and wonderful Tom Cruise hairstyle makes it the black sheet of the family. I mean it has some redeeming qualities sure, (more…)
Mission Impossible from 1996 acted as a full reboot to classic series and kick started a new Tom Cruise movie franchise that’s still around to this day. The Brian De Palma directed project popularized some series staples such as face masks, big stunts and the evolution of Tom Cruises hair. This is our Caravan Of (more…)
Mulan 2020 has hit Disney Plus BUT FORGET THAT LIVE ACTION REMAKE because the 1998 animation is where it’s at. Telling an epic tale tacking the patriarchy in ancient China it sees Mulan tackle the Hun killing most of them and saving a nation. This is our Caravan Of Garbage review! Sorry mate, you need (more…)
To wrap up our Nolanpaloza (his words) we revisit the 2014 sci-fi epic Interstellar. Starring Matthew Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Michael Caine it sees the future of humanity threatened by a global catastrophe so they go into space and time dilation and wormholes and stuff like that. Pretty full on. Thanks for (more…)

Pacific Rim 2013 was a movie that brought to cinemas the promise of giant robots vs giant monsters. And boy does it. That being said it was a franchise that never entirely took off despite a full blown sequel and a variety of planned spin-off materials. However how does it hold up in 2020? We (more…)
