All Quiet on the Western Front Review

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

Top Thirty 2022 New Release Movies, #10-1

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

Top Thirty New Release Movies Of 2022, #20-11

It’s part two of Stew’s look back at the 72 new release movies he saw in 2022.

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

Episode 51: Green Hornet

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

Housing Complex C (from Adult Swim)

A bit predictable, but maybe that’s from seeing a lot of Anime in my life. Beautifully (and frightfully) animated from top notch studio Project I. G. (They do most of the Ghost in the Shell stuff), “Housing Complex C” tells the tale of an apartment complex where several seniors and a few families reside. There’s a girl named Kimi, who lives with her mother. All … Continue reading Housing Complex C (from Adult Swim)

The Top 50 First Time Watches of 2022: #50-41

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 The Top 50 First Time Watches of 2022: #50-41

Clerks 3 Review

NOTE: This review will contain spoilers for Clerks III! I was surprised when I had started hearing good things about the third installment in Kevin Smith’s Clerks franchise. I know Clerks II is somewhat divisive, and I don’t personally recall having cared at all for it (though it has been years since I watched it). I heard such abhorrent things about The Jay & Silent … Continue reading Clerks 3 Review
