Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (Extended)

Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior allowed director George Miller to take the concepts and character from the 1979 original and really put the boot in. That meant a bigger myth, bigger stunts, bigger men, more butts cut out of leather trousers. And the result was a lot of the iconic imagery we know of the character even today. Forty years on it still holds up and it’s influence has been felt across multiple other media properties. MAD MAX. Mad Max. Thanks for watching our Caravan Of Garbage review.

Mad Max (Extended)

Before there was Max Fury Road there was two other Mad Max movies and then the original Mad Max movie from 1979. The directorial debut of George Miller and the first feature film from Melvin Gibson it gave the Australian film industry the kick in the arse it needed with it’s influence the world over still being felt today. Crazy stunts, insane (or mad) performances and more Victorian Country Roads than you can possible imagine there’s a reason it’s legacy still endures. Thanks for watching.

King Kong 1933 (Extended)

We’re going back to where it all began, the original King Kong movie from 1933. It’s influence is still felt to this very day with it’s unique story, amazing use of stop motion coupled with rear projection and a symphonic score to accompany the iconic imagery. It’s easy to see why it became an instant classic and remains relevant in the year 2024. Thanks for watching.

Godzilla 1954 (Extended)

It seems unlikely that the creators behind the 1954 original Japanese Godzilla movie could anticipated it not only remaining culturally relevant at least 70 years but also would eventually feature Godzilla and King King (sans metal gauntlet) traveling into the hollow earth to fight a race of giant orang utans or whatever happens in Godzilla V Kong. And yet here we are. Anyways, lets all take a look at where it all started. Thanks for watching our Caravan Of Garbage review

The REAL Ghostbusters (Extended)

After the success of Ghostbusters 1984 but before the mediocrity of Ghostbusters 2 there was The REAL Ghostbusters, an animated childrens show that aimed to keep the series alive. And also sell toys to children. The story behind it’s creation is fascinating unlike the show itself which is not great. Thanks for watching our Caravan Of Garbage review.

The Legend Of Zorro (Extended)

In 2005 we finally were treated to a follow up to The Mask Of Zorro with The Legend Of Zorro. Antonio Banderas is back as Alejandro de la Vega along with Catherine Zeta Jones this time going up against Rufus Sewell. Whilst not reaching the heights either critically or financially of the 1998 original it’s still got a bunch of great Zorroing in it and that’s fun. Thanks for watching our Caravan Of Garbage review.

The Mask of Zorro (Extended)

Here at Caravan Of Garbage industries there is one hard and fast rule. Zorro is the best. And arguably the pinnacle of Zorro (of which there are many) in the 1998 action adventure romance triumph The Mask Of Zorro starring Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta-Jones directed by Martin Campbell. Great movie. Good Zorro-ing.

Her story is honest and raw and an example of what happens when we have the courage to really live a creative life and find ourselves with vulnerability, humour and joy.

In 2010 Hollywood attempted the impossible, a direct live action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender. Turns out. It was impossible. With many considering this to be M.

Spider Man: No Way Home (Extended)

Despite numerous stumbling blocks leading up to the release of No Way Home including a temporary ending to the MCU/Disney and Sony deal, Covid protocols and the uncertainty that both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield would be willing to return. But it all worked out in the end with a pretty crowdpleasing experience at the time and a box office to the tune of 1.9 billion dollars. Thanks for watching our Caravan Of Garbage review.

Luckily he has the help of a magical green smoke spewing hero in the form of Mysterio, a being from a parallel dimension who’s only out to do good.

Spider-Man: Homecoming (Extended)

After the cinematic lows of The Amazing Spider-Man series it was time for another Spider-Man reboot, this time by folding him into the MCU. After his first appearance as Peter Park in Captain America: Civil War, Tom Holland got his own (sort of) movie dealing with the trials and tribulations of being a high school superhero. Going up against Michael Keaton’s Vulture and his terrible surrogate dad in Tony Stark/Iron Man the film did a great job at youthifying the franchise and taking the character in a new direction. Which some people like and some people don’t. Thanks for watching our Caravan Of Garbage review.
