B6B: TV REVIEW: The Outsider – Episode 5

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…more

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

Texans vs. Titans: Week 17 Primer

Here we are again, ladies and gentlemen. For the third straight season, the Tennessee Titans are in a “win-and-in” scenario in Week 17 of the NFL season. They were able to pull it off in 2017 when a Marcus Mariota-led Titans team defeated the Jaguars 15-10 on New Year’s Eve. The Titans weren’t so lucky…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: Watchmen Season Finale

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 Mandalorian: Chapter 6

B6B: TV REVIEW: The Mandalorian: Chapter 6

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – December 14, 2019) Another week, another attempt on Mando’s life. This is the Star Wars equivalent of “same old, same old,” but I’m not growing tired of it. While this was the longest episode of the series thus far, and it didn’t need to be, it was a well-crafted story…more

B6B: MOVIE REVIEW: Jumanji: The Next Level

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – December 12, 2019) Let’s dispense with too many words before we get to the central point here: If you liked Welcome to the Jungle, you’re going to love The Next Level, because nothing that worked in the original reboot is discarded. It’s building on what succeeded, rather than attempting to…more

B6B: MOVIE REVIEW: Richard Jewell

B6B: MOVIE REVIEW: Richard Jewell

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – December 12, 2019) Stories told about the so-called “everyman” resonate with us because we know people in our own lives that reflect some, if not most, of the characteristics of the pro… or sometimes the antagonists portrayed. There’s a relationship to a neighbor or someone at church or school or…more

B6B: THE MANDALORIAN: Chapter 5 Review

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – December 8, 2019) CHAPTER 5: THE GUNSLINGER So, whose boots did we see… and HEAR… at the end of the episode? That might be the biggest takeaway from another Mando quest and another close shave for the Child. The past few installments have been standalone in nature, but that’s to…more

B6B: WATCHMEN Episode 7 Review

B6B: WATCHMEN Episode 7 Review

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – December 1, 2019) EPISODE 7: AN ALMOST RELIGIOUS AWE (Stacy Osei-Kuffour/Clare Kiechel; David Semel) Now THAT is what I call a legitimate stunner of a conclusion. Following an episode that, although compelling, was unbelievably dark, we saw the culmination of much of the show’s first six weeks, finishing up with…more
