The 90s was an important decade to my generation if only for the simple fact that it shined a light upon the polluting ways of the world. And media reflected that message of hope and climate change reversal in the form of many things, namely, Captain Planet. But since they didn’t make a movie for that, I watched the 1996 “eco-friendly comedy:”

Guys, I picked one of the worst Puppet Masters for this week’s #52PickUp, time is NOT kind to:
That’s right, I watched Puppet Master 4. I remember loving this film because it was a new Puppet Master and this one and the fifth installment were filmed back to back.
This may come as a surprise to some of you, but growing up, I was a fat kid. So naturally, I wholeheartedly related to this 1995 comedy about fat kids who go to camp, only for the previous owners give it up to a maniacal health nut hellbent on making money, and have a nightmare befall them that year.
