Thirteen The Fridayth: Shudder Roulette!

Sometimes these Fridays The 13th just sneak right up on you! I didn’t even know this one was coming. I better glance at the calendar and see when the next one might be so I can prepare. (January!) Anyway, welcome back to another edition of THIRTEEN THE FRIDAYTH, the insipidly named series where I discuss random horror movie goings on. Mostly since I just love … Continue reading Thirteen The Fridayth: Shudder Roulette!

Thirteen The Fridayth: Multiple Jasons Theory!

I’m not crazy, okay? Just… don’t forget that as we go on here. I mean, I’m nuts for Jason Movies, but that’s allowable, right? They are good-to-great movies! Well… okay-to-great. All right, they are sucky-to-great. I know, I know. Jason Goes To Hell still exists. More on that one later, though, because it’s about to be my Exception-That-Proves-The-Rule movie. (I have actually always hated that … Continue reading Thirteen The Fridayth: Multiple Jasons Theory!

Thirteen The Fridayth: Part 3!

In case the title isn’t tipping you off, we’ve been here before. Twice, even! Nary a Friday the 13th passes without my ranting about horror flicks. It’s mostly a horror stream of consciousness, frankly. I never go into these articles with a plan. Planning is for people that have something important to say! So what’s not important right now…? I was recently at some very dear friends’ going … Continue reading Thirteen The Fridayth: Part 3!

Thirteen The Fridayth: Part 2

Wait a minute… This feels familiar. (Also, the longer I look at the word (“word”) “Fridayth”, the more I think it looks like the name of a Norse deity. Just throw a misplaced J in there, and we are good to go. Frijdayth! The dawn of our Norn blessings!) Anyway, remember back in October when we ranked our best candies in honor of Halloween? Originally, I wanted that … Continue reading Thirteen The Fridayth: Part 2

Ranking The Franchise: Friday The 13th

This is something I did last year during the infancy of SWO Productions for the Halloween franchise, and it’s something I kept meaning to come back to: a series where I rank all of the movies (or all of the ones I have seen) in a classic film franchise. I get a lot of mileage out of discussing my Halloween rankings, so I bet I … Continue reading Ranking The Franchise: Friday The 13th

Top Ten: Fictional Mothers

Mothers and their children share a special something something. Hey, I don’t know what to tell you; my own mom was the dirt fucking worst. All kinds of abusive and really just the absolute pits. She died a long time ago, though, so it’s fine. I won. But what are you, my therapist? This isn’t what you are here for! You’re here for the Top Ten … Continue reading Top Ten: Fictional Mothers

Top Ten: Horror Films of the 2010’s

I was improperly raised on horror movies as a child, as I have detailed before. In addition to the semi-regular Jason-based nightmares that are just ingrained in my DNA at this point, it has given me a lifelong love of the genre. Horror cinema just combines some of the best parts of every other field of film-making; they can be funny and mysterious and tense and … Continue reading Top Ten: Horror Films of the 2010’s

Coming Soon: The NEW SWO Productions!

Hello, world! On October 9th, 2020, SWO Productions debuted to bring you entertainment reviews and news takes from the world of Pop Culture. Since then, I’ve been working moderately hard–hard-ish–to provide new content each and every day. And I greatly appreciate every single one of you who have taken the time to read and enjoy articles, lists, drafts, and more here at SWO Productions! I … Continue reading Coming Soon: The NEW SWO Productions!

Top Ten: Movie Franchises (by the #ODPH!)

Hey everyone! This is Ken M from the ODPH podcast, better known as the Ocho Duro Parlay Hour, and for this GotS top 10 challenge, we’re talking best movie franchises. In all of Hollywood’s history, to get 3 or more quality films out of an idea/concept/story can be more of a challenge that you think. For my list, I broke down my criteria for what makes a great … Continue reading Top Ten: Movie Franchises (by the #ODPH!)

Top Ten: Movie Franchises

Franchises. No, not… I mean, MOVIE franchises. Why make one good movie when you can make somewhere between three and a hundred movies of varying quality, right? Hollywood is ON BOARD with this notion. If a movie is released to more than 2000 theaters nationwide, you can almost bet someone behind it all envisions it becoming a sprawling film empire. As someone who grew up … Continue reading Top Ten: Movie Franchises

Ranking The Friday The 13th Franchise Movies

I don’t actually call the Friday The 13th movies “Friday The 13th”. I mean… I know that’s the name of the Franchise, but it just doesn’t work for me. They’re “Jason Movies”. They’ve always been “Jason Movies” to me, and they always will be “Jason Movies” to me. Even when a startling number of them don’t have… you know… Jason in them. That’s weird. But … Continue reading Ranking The Friday The 13th Franchise Movies
