B6B: MOVIE REVIEW: Uncut Gems

B6B: MOVIE REVIEW: Uncut Gems

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – January 8, 2020) After watching Uncut Gems, I came to a pretty drastic realization and decision. I think I’m done watching Safdie Brothers movies. The last two I’ve seen, Good Time and Uncut Gems, have left me in such a negative mood, because the films are flat out abrasive as…more

B6B: Big 6 Takeaways from Tennessee vs. Indiana (Gator Bowl)

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – January 2, 2019) See, this is why you don’t gamble. Vegas had this game Tennessee -1.5. How they decide their lines is quite the science, but for crying out loud, I’d be crying out loud, because I was sure the Vols would make this much easier on themselves than they…more

B6B: TV REVIEW: The Mandalorian Season 1 Finale

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – December 27, 2019) With every step Jon Favreau takes with The Mandalorian, it’s so much easier to understand why The Rise of Skywalker was so underwhelming. There’s a school of thought, not inaccurate, that Star Wars is often held to a higher standard than many other properties, but here’s the…more

B6B: Big 6 Takeaways from Titans vs. Saints

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – December 22, 2019) The Titans did actually lose on Sunday, in a game that prior to the season everyone likely expected them to lose, and even this week a lot of us did. It was a loss, but how big a loss? Because of the way everything has played out,…more

B6B: MOVIE REVIEW: Bombshell

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – December 20, 2019) MeToo might be the definitive story of the last half-decade in America, alongside the Trump Administration and all that comes with it of course. We’ve seen the fall of some power brokers of power brokers, some of the biggest names in Hollywood, and yes, we saw the…more

B6B: TV REVIEW: The Mandalorian Chapter 7

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – December 19, 2019) CHAPTER 7: THE RECKONING (Jon Favreau, Deborah Chow) If there’s one take I’ve gone to more than any other in the world of covering television, it’s this one. When it’s time for the penultimate episode of a season or a series, you’d better expect the worst for…more

B6B: MOVIE REVIEW: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (SPOILER-FREE)

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – December 18, 2019) It’s got to be tough to take the single most successful film franchise in history, spawning countless spinoffs, both live action and animated, zillions of licensing dollars, video games, and everything else under the sun, and somehow continue to try and recapture what made the first two…more

B6B: Big 6 Takeaways from Titans vs. Texans

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – December 15, 2019) For Titans fans… sigh. I’m sorry. I talked on Friday’s show about being wrong and being able to admit it. I wish I hadn’t been right about this season being over long ago, but it was just asking for a truckload to keep on winning at this…more

B6B: TV REVIEW: Watchmen Season Finale

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – December 15, 2019) I’m surprised, but not in the manner I expected to be following the Watchmen finale, though it’s also not necessarily a bad thing. What I’m taken mildly aback by is how…straightforward the entire episode was, and that I’m not left confused by much of it. It all…more

B6B: TV REVIEW: The Outsider – Episode 6

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – February 9, 2020) EPISODE 6: THE ONE WITH THE YIDDISH VAMPIRE The very end of the episode was predictable and was set-up throughout, but outside of that particular sequence, which was full-on tension and one heck of a cliffhanger, it was an episode that actually felt like a bit of…

B6B: TV REVIEW: The Outsider – Episode 5

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – January 31, 2020) EPISODE 5: TEAR-DRINKER “Tell him to stop.” This brings me right back to Eddie Murphy’s classic Delirious special, talking of Poltergeist and the “get out” reaction from his family. “Too bad we can’t stay.” Pretty much. When Jeannie Anderson has that moment in her home in the…

Kobe is Gone. His Legacy Lives Forever. By: Madison Blevins (Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images) “Hearing the ball bounce. The feeling that you get when you make a great pass. Walking on the hardwood.

B6B: TV REVIEW: The Outsider – Episode 4

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – January 27, 2020) EPISODE 4: QUE VIERE EL COCO The Outsider is compelling. It’s a very good show. Usually when you read a sentence like that, there’s a “but” in the vicinity. Nope. I’m enjoying it. I thought it fitting to write bluntly and in quick strike fashion, matching Holly…
