3/5 63% Hercules (2014) " About as good as it can get for this type of picture. It's utter tosh, but impossible not to enjoy." — Radio Times
Posted Jul 23, 2014
3/5 17% Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014) " The cinematic equivalent of being repeatedly hit over the head with a food mixer." — Radio Times

1.5/4 50% Hemlock Grove: Season 2 (TV, 2014) " Hemlock Grove no longer suffers from lethargic pacing, but it's also been scrubbed free of any residual weirdness. " — Slant Magazine

2/4 44% Power: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " Power is a warmed-over soap opera only superficially obsessed with its protagonist's relationship to guns and drugs. " — Slant Magazine

1.5/4 63% The Grand Seduction (2014) " Like many films that contrast the simplicity of a rural community against the confusion of city life, The Grand Seduction exhibits a patriarchal, xenophobic attitude." — Slant Magazine
Posted May 23, 2014
.5/4 31% Bad Johnson (2014) " Huck Botko's film asks us to laugh at, even revel in, the misadventures of womanizing men, even as it condemns them for their behavior." — Slant Magazine
Posted Apr 28, 2014
3.5/4 100% Veep: Season 3 (TV, 2014) " In Veep, political life is so all-consuming that no happy, well-adjusted person would ever choose to be a part of it. " — Slant Magazine

3/4 —— Youth " Tom Shoval, who eschews stylistic flourishes in order to focus on character, leaves the film's heavy lifting to the actors and his own screenplay. " — Slant Magazine
Posted Mar 16, 2014
3.5/4 100% Big Men (2014) " Rachel Boynton remarkably reveals just how much influence corporate interests have on public wellbeing, and how rarely Ghanaians are part of any debate." — Slant Magazine
Posted Mar 8, 2014
2.5/4 29% 3 Days To Kill (2014) " McG may strip down his approach and serve up a variety of slick, well-paced shoot-outs and car chases, but his technical skill can't quite overcome the story's lazy sense of humor and incomprehensible account of international espionage." — Slant Magazine
Posted Feb 20, 2014
3/4 85% House of Cards: Season 2 (TV, 2014) " The weather in Washington, D.C. continues to be permanently overcast in season two of House of Cards. " — Slant Magazine
Posted Feb 18, 2014
3.5/4 100% Manila In The Claws Of Light (1975) " For Brocka and his characters, Manila is a libertarian dystopia, where poverty breeds its own predators and victims as the city's poor grasp for the little wealth that hasn't yet been distributed." — Slant Magazine
Posted Feb 1, 2014
1.5/4 57% Fleming: The Man Who Would be Bond: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " Fleming is a Bond epic reduced to the most generic of redemption stories. " — Slant Magazine
Posted Jan 27, 2014
3/4 100% When I Saw You (2014) " Like Antoine Doinel in The 400 Blows, Tarek has a way of using defiance and sarcasm to make himself seem smarter than any ostensible authority figure. " — Slant Magazine
Posted Jan 17, 2014
2/4 59% Detour (2013) " In comparison to its superior predecessors, Detour's redemption plot feels banal and slight." — Slant Magazine
