It’s Stew’s time to shine! Every year for the past… I dunno… many (?), I have watched the Royal Rumble match[es], reviewed the Royal Rumbles, and ranked them all in order of my own preference. And now it’s time for the 2023 editions. We’re going to be breaking down the matches, figuring out where the new editions fit in the all-time rankings, and then talking … Continue reading Ranking The Rumbles: 2023
Here we are! It took most of the first month of January to get here, but I am finally at the top ten movies I watched for the first time in 2022. Having met my goal of 300 movies in 12 months (I actually hit it in 11) for SWO Productions, I am WAY off that pace for the first few weeks of 2023! I … Continue reading The Top 50 First Time Watches Of 2022, #10-1
This isn’t the first time I’ve talked about Komi Can’t Communicate here at SWO Productions, but along the way, I just fell off reading the series. I’ve continued BUYING the books, but I haven’t been reading them. I’ve been letting them accrue space on my manga shelves as I waited for… the right time, I guess? Most of 2022 was NOT the right time. I … Continue reading Stew’s [Series] Reviews: Komi Can’t Communicate Volume 1
NOTE: SPOILERS FOR ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT, WHICH, I MEAN…. GOD BLESS YOU IF YOU NEED THIS WARNING. Just to clarify up front: war movies are not typically my thing. I never like when someone says something akin to “All [X] movies are the same to me!” because that’s a lazy person’s way of writing something off. To say any franchise or genre … Continue reading All Quiet on the Western Front Review
NOTE: THIS ARTICLE MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR RRR, A 10 MONTH OLD MOVIE! It’s January 19th. I’ve just watched the best movie I’m going to see in 2023. I don’t know if this makes me happy or sad. It’s a shame I didn’t watch RRR last year proper when it came out. It would have pushed basically EVERYTHING back one spot on my Top 30 … Continue reading RRR
This is definitely my top ten movies of 2022. I say that because last time there was some consternation about one of my picks in my #20-11 range. Someone was displeased I included Werewolf By Night. It seems enough like a movie to me, but maybe not to others. So you could argue my last “ten” only had nine “movies”. So I put it up … Continue reading Top Thirty 2022 New Release Movies, #10-1

How do percents work again? What is ten out of fifty? Let’s see… that would be 20 out of 100. So 20%! Let’s get into the next twenty percents’ worth of my favorite movies I watched for the very first time ever in 2022! Since there are two lists left, that means we are in the… (twenty times two…) top fortieth percentile here! Fun with … Continue reading The Top 50 First Time Watches of 2022, #20-11
CHAPTER FIVE: Five Years Ago… “Man, I am really sorry about earlier. I didn’t really know you were talking to Butterfly like that. I thought there wasn’t nothing there! Anyway, I was out of line asking her to The Date Spot.” “Naw, man. We’re all here for the cash, man. You gotta do what you think can help us win. It’s cool. It’s cool.” With … Continue reading The Chosen, Chapter 5
We are back to running down the best 50 films I saw for the first time ever in 2022, and this is where things go from Very Good to Great, as we officially cross over from the 3.5 star movies to the 4 stars. Let’s see what they are! 30. Evil Dead Prior to 2022, I’d seen Army of Darkness innumerable times. I had seen … Continue reading The Top 50 First Time Watches of 2022, #30-21
It’s part two of Stew’s look back at the 72 new release movies he saw in 2022. Look, I didn’t want to take up your whole life and rank all SEVENTY-TWO of them, but I did want to shout out the ones I can unquestionably recommend. So I decided to do this Top 30 list! We reviewed #30-21 last time. Now we are onto the … Continue reading Top Thirty New Release Movies Of 2022, #20-11
We are back to my covering the best 50 movies I watched for the first time ever in 2022, excluding actual 2022 new releases, which are coming out in their own top 30. Remember, I had seen 120+ movies in 2022 that were neither new releases nor movies I’d seen before, so these are all recommended watches! How many have you seen? As a reminder, … Continue reading The Top 50 First Time Watches Of 2022, #40-31
Gaius from Back To The Blockbuster joins The Order this episode to look at a failed franchise starter that tried to reinvent a classic hero with a modern spin and a new feel. It… didn’t work. But was it actually a hidden gem? For some download options to support this episode, click HERE! For more from Back To The Blockbuster, click HERE! And for more … Continue reading Episode 51: Green Hornet
Much was made from January through November of my quest to watch 300+ movies in the calendar year. As I write this, it’s December 23rd, and I’ve seen 317 individual movies across the year, easily smashing the target I set for myself, so much so that I could take December “off” more-or-less and focus on my writing and getting stuff scheduled and ready at SWO … Continue reading Top Thirty New Release Movies of 2022, #30-21
Me, about six hours ago: Well, I want to do more full movie reviews in 2023, so I’m going to see that snazzy looking new horror flick M3GAN, and afterwards, I’ll be able to write a review on it. Also me, as I walked out of M3GAN an hour ago: I have no fucking idea what I’m going to say about this movie because I … Continue reading M3GAN: Kind Of A Review?
