After a King Kong centric prequel things return to Godzilla himself in Godzilla: King of the Monsters! The idea with this Monsterverse entry being to bring in other legendary creatures including King Ghidora, Mothra, Rodan and for one gigantic epic battle. And sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn’t. Thanks for watching our Caravan Of Garbage review.

Instead of jumping directly into another Godzilla movie after Godzilla 2014 the inexplicable decision was made to make a King Kong prequel set during the events of the Vietnam War. Completely revamping the character in a new narrative absolutely pays off in what is one of the more more fun, gory and entertaining Monsterverse movies that brings together Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Sam Jackson and more. Thanks for watching our Caravan Of Garbage review.

Godzilla 2014 managed to kick off a new era of monster movies, now titles the Monsterverse. Directed by Gareth Edwards of Rogue One/The Creator fame it became the latest americanized attempt to revamp Godzilla for the west after the disaster that was Godzilla 1998. Whilst it might not be everyone’s cup of tea we thought it was pretty good with the inclusion of Bryan Cranston, new creatures in the form of the Muto’s and the biggest Godzilla we had every seen.

Great news. We’re finally at the end of The Hunger Games trilogy and by that I mean the second part of the third movie. At the very least in this one at least a bunch of stuff happens including a big traps, big action sequences, big love triangles and big Julianne Moore being shot with an arrow.

Because Harry Potter split it’s last book into two movies and it worked really one that one time a decision was made to take the weakest book in The Hunger Games franchises, Mockingjay and do the same. The result is two reeeeeally drawn out movies that pretty much ground the series to a sputtering halt. (more…)

After the huge success of the first Hunger Games an adaptation of the sequel book was inevitable. So a year later in 2013 Jennifer Lawrence returns as Katniss Everdeen in a bigger budgeted follow up that asks the question, what if Hunger Games but more? With great new inclusion like Phillip Seymor Hoffman and…I dunno a poison fog or whatever this entry turned out to be the biggest box office return for the series before the decline.

In the early 2010’s every single dystopian young adult fantasy novel got a chance at a movie adaptation. Most either bombed at the box office or experienced a mild success before completely disappearing. One of the rare exceptions was The Hunger Games series, which exploded into cinemas in 2012 bringing Jennifer Lawrence mainstream success. The concept is simple. Put a bunch of kids in an arena and have them kill each other. No wonder everybody loved it. Thanks for watching our Caravan Of Garbage review.

You’d think with the combination of Seth Rogan & Evan Goldberg the minds behind The Boys, Superbad and TMNT Mutant Mayhem, director Michel Gondry from Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind and the cast of Christoph Waltz, Jay Chou and Cameron Diaz that The Green Hornet 2011 would not be terrible.

In 1996 Paramount Pictures took a shot at creating another Indiana Jones franchise with The Phantom.

Before the genesis of Batman there was The Shadow. But after the movie Batman 1989 there was The Shadow 1994. Aiming to capitalise on a comic book trend kicked off by Warner Brothers and Tim Burton it sees Alec Baldwin, a contender for the role of Bruce Wayne, manifesting the ghostly presence of Lamont Cranston. By day, good time millionaire playboy. By night, a guy with a hat and a bandana and a prosthetic nose with vague mystical powers which he uses to fight crime. Anyways it bombed.

Big apologies this week, our Caravan Of Garbage on The Rocketeer is delayed due to illness. And although it’s not the same as a video here’s the audio extended version. Again, apologies for the delay.
Before Captain America: The First Avengers director Joe Johnston brought us The Rocketeer. Second in our series of pulpy/throwback comic back adaptations (that failed) this adaptation takes us back to the 1930s, an era with rocket powered heroes, thin mustachioed villains and swashbuckling action. Intended to kick off a new Indiana Jones styled adventure series it fell short of Disney’s expectations and is largely forgotten despite being quite a fun ride.

In 2014 the most powerful people on earth (Hollywood) decided to bless us all with a reboot of the original RoboCop. Taking some cues for the 1987 classic it brought Joel Kinnaman into the title role of Alex Murphy in a effort to again revamp the classic series. With a stellar cast including Michael Keaton, Michael K Williams, Jack Earl Haley, Abbie Cornish, Sam Jackson it certainly tries some things but ultimately comes out feeling rather toothless. Thanks for watching along as we reviewed all of the RoboCop movies!

By RoboCop 3 the good people at Orion knew what kind of audience the franchise solely appealed to, children. This obviously wasn’t true but for this final entry in the original RoboCop saga things take a PG turn with toned down violence, satire and the disappearance of Peter Weller for Robert John Burke. Sure he has a jet pack and a flame thrower now and there’s a Japanese Cyborg ninja but none of it really comes together. Thanks for watching our Caravan Of Garbage review!

RoboCop 2 was inevitable after the success of the original. And you know what? It could have been much worse. With a more competent cyborg enemy, some solid comedic moments and Peter Weller being at the top of his game in terms of RoboCop sequels this remains the best case scenario despite some obvious shortcomings. Thanks for watching!
