Stew’s June 2022 Movie Log

It's the halfway point of the year, and with it, the 50% marker of my journey to 300 movies watched within the span of January 1st 2022 to December 31st 2022. It's almost quaint to remember this started as a mission to 250 when the year changed and I saw I'd surpassed 200 total movies... Continue Reading →

Jab’s Reviews: TMNT (The Archie-Exclusive Characters… yes including Cudley the Cowlick)

https://photos.smugmug.com/TMNT/i-XBQn7Pr/0/d339be1f/Th/Jagwar-Th.jpg JAGWAR: -Jagwar is the de facto leader of the Mighty Mutanimals, a spin-off attempt from the TMNT Adventures Archie Comics series. Like I said earlier, they were short-lived (a three-issue mini-series followed by an ongoing that was cancelled after only 9 issues), and were killed after a six-part back-up storyline in the main "TMNT" book- a SHOCKING move...

Jab’s Disney Reviews: Treasure Planet

TREASURE PLANET (2002):Written by: Ron Clements, John Musker, Rob Edwards, Ted Elliot & Terry Rossio The backstory to the making of this movie is more interesting to me than the actual film itself, which is totally forgettable. Clements & Musker, two A-level directors responsible for The Little Mermaid, basically begged the studio for 12 years to make... Continue Reading →

Sailor Moon SuperS (Final Summation)

SAILOR MOON SUPERS:-… sigh… well, HERE GOES… Out of all the seasons of Sailor Moon, the fourth seasons, Sailor Moon SuperS (said like "Supers", but with a big "S", because reasons), is almost universally the most disliked by the show's adult fanbase. Even back in the 1990s, in the early days of the widespread online... Continue Reading →

May Movie Log: 2022

You know what I realized I needed? A score card to correlate my ratings. Because a 2.5 for me is perhaps very different than a 2.5 for you. So here's my little cheat sheet: 5/5 - Essentially perfect 4.5 / 5 - A top-tier, extremely high-quality and rewatchable movie. The difference between this and a... Continue Reading →

2021’s First Time Watch Report!

Wow, I feel like this article needs about three different openings because I haven't written anything in a while. Let's get to it! Yes, first off: where has my writing been? What the heck, right? AP and Jabroniville have done a STUPENDOUS (Stew-pendous. ha!) job keeping SWOProductions flowing lately with all of their fantastic contributions!... Continue Reading →

Jab’s Image Comics Deep Dive: The Authority Continued!

Superman Fights The Elite:In 2001, a year after Millar and Authority fans LOL’d through his team massacring parodies of the Avengers, Joe Kelly wrote the Superman story What’s So Funny About Truth, Justice and the American Way? , a sensational book in which a team of obvious parodies of The Authority show up and act like… well, the Authority. Moralistic, hyper-aggressive,... Continue Reading →

Jab’s Disney Reviews: Rescuers Down Under & Oliver and Company

https://photos.smugmug.com/Disney/i-sZHWzL2/0/cbccdade/M/OliverCompany-M.jpg OLIVER AND COMPANY (1988): Written by: Charles Dickens (original story), Vance Gerry, Roger Allers, Gary Trousdale, Kirk Wise, Dave Michener, Pete Young & Mike Gabriel This one is odd, comparing it to the rest of the Disney Animated franchise. I mean, "Take a famous story and make them animals" has been done, and "people in... Continue Reading →
