100% Better Call Saul: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "The writing on Better Call Saul is as tight as any show on television, with every scene feeling like it has thematic or narrative purpose without being overwritten. " ‐
Posted Feb 12, 2016
82% The Club (El Club) (2016) "It's a movie that almost doesn't reveal its brilliance until it's over, as one ponders its themes and appreciates its deft, light touch. " ‐
Posted Feb 12, 2016
78% Vinyl: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Vinyl sometimes feels like it's still just warming up for the songs that will bring the house down, but I'm not leaving this show any time soon. " ‐
Posted Feb 11, 2016
75% 11.22.63: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "While the construction of 11.22.63 holds it back from greatness, Franco deserves credit for really committing to the high concept of it all. " ‐
Posted Feb 10, 2016
2/4 84% Deadpool (2016) ""Deadpool" fails to live up to the potential of its beloved source material, subverting its own agenda by becoming a remarkably generic, by-the-numbers man-in-tights flick. " ‐
Posted Feb 10, 2016
3.5/4 78% Jim: The James Foley Story (2016) ""Jim" is a moving portrait of courage, but it is most of all a concerted effort to take back the life of James Foley. " ‐
Posted Feb 5, 2016
97% The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Alexander and Karaszewski have delivered a drama that's both as soapy as you'd expect from the man who created Nip/Tuck and surprisingly genuine as historical document. " ‐
Posted Feb 2, 2016
57% The X-Files: Season 10 (TV, 2016) "Give six writer/directors six chances to do whatever they want with these iconic characters. It's a great idea for a series that can't just repeat itself as it will inherently feel nostalgic. " ‐
Posted Jan 20, 2016
62% Mad Dogs: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Ryan's writing, collaborating with Cris Cole, is typically razor-sharp, but the real draw here is the cast, all of whom find ways to stand out in a show that's very plot-driven. " ‐
Posted Jan 19, 2016
2/4 43% Intruders (2016) "The result is a promising film that leaves a bad taste in your mouth, like a meal well-presented on the plate that just doesn't fill you up. " ‐
Posted Jan 15, 2016
72% Billions: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Over time, the mega-talented cast finds a way to ground the characters just enough that we stick with it. " ‐
Posted Jan 14, 2016
30% Second Chance: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It's shocking that a show with this much talent involved in 2016 could be this ineffective, this inept and this awful. " ‐
Posted Jan 11, 2016
1/4 40% The Abandoned (2016) "Just when you think this IFC Midnight flick will slide into an effective genre track, it flies off the rails in spectacular fashion, getting more unbearable and ridiculous all the way up to its closing minutes. " ‐
Posted Jan 8, 2016
78% Killing Fields: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "In the case of its premiere episode, an interesting mystery is hampered by over-production, scripted interview scenes and other signs of a show trying to please instead of just letting the action unfold. " ‐
Posted Jan 7, 2016
56% Shades of Blue: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "While the premiere, directed by Barry Levinson, is more promising that the ads may have made it look, the show quickly devolves into a series of silly twists and nonsensical plotting in subsequent episodes. " ‐
Posted Jan 6, 2016
97% American Crime: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "John Ridley's American Crime is one of television's most underrated shows, and one of its most consistently engaging on an artistic level. " ‐
Posted Jan 6, 2016
94% Halt and Catch Fire: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "AMC's bafflingly underrated drama is one of the best programs ever at capturing the human fallibilities that go into into carving your own path in business and life, including blind competitiveness, crippling insecurity and overwhelming doubt. " ‐
Posted Dec 28, 2015
96% You're the Worst: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "It is a masterful comedy about how our actions often say what we cannot. " ‐
Posted Dec 28, 2015
3.5/4 82% The Revenant (2015) "You don't just watch "The Revenant," you experience it. You walk out of it exhausted, impressed with the overall quality of the filmmaking and a little more grateful for the creature comforts of your life. " ‐
Posted Dec 21, 2015
97% Making a Murderer: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "This excellent series captures a system that so easily loses sight of its most important duty: finding justice for its victims. " ‐
Posted Dec 17, 2015
5/5 100% Fargo: Season 2 Episode 10 "Television is a writer's medium. The production details on Fargo are terrific, and the show boasts one of the year's best ensembles, but in this incredible season finale, it all comes down to the writing. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Dec 15, 2015
0.5/4 0% The Ridiculous 6 "It's like someone put ideas for Western-themed sketch comedy on a board and then Sandler threw darts at it to determine its order. The film has no flow, no rhythm, and absolutely no reason to be 119 minutes. " ‐
Posted Dec 11, 2015
97% Transparent: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "I like these characters so much that I really just want to sit around and listen to them talk naturally to each other, examining the dynamics between one of the most fascinating families on TV. " ‐
Posted Dec 10, 2015
69% Childhood's End: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Syfy's adaptation plays with Clarke's plot and themes but does so in such a leaden, DOA way that it's almost like a grade-school paper from someone who didn't read the assignment. " ‐
Posted Dec 9, 2015
76% The Expanse: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Unlike SO much of what the network that has become known for Sharknado has offered lately, The Expanse actually challenges audience intellect, forcing them to follow disparate subplots, multiple characters and thematic intentions. " ‐
Posted Dec 9, 2015
5/5 100% Fargo: Season 2 Episode 9 "This great episode was directed by Adam Arkin... Good news: He also directed next week's finale, "Palindrome." " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Dec 8, 2015
78% A Very Murray Christmas (2015) "A Very Murray Christmas is so much of what Bill Murray and Sofia Coppola fans would expect it to be that it's almost perfect. " ‐
Posted Dec 7, 2015
2.5/4 71% The World Of Kanako (Kawaki) (2015) "I grew tired of the nihilism of "The World of Kanako" long before it was over, and I have a high tolerance for that sort of thing, so that has to be taken into account when assessing the overall product, but the quality of the filmmaking never flags. " ‐
Posted Dec 4, 2015
4/5 100% Fargo: Season 2 Episode 8 "Although it has a slightly slower pace than we've seen, "Loplop" was ultimately just as rewarding as the rest of this season has been. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

Posted Nov 24, 2015
95% The Man in the High Castle: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "With The Man in the High Castle, Amazon proves they can play with the competition provided by Netflix on a nearly weekly basis. It's smart, driven, stylish and creative. " ‐
Posted Nov 18, 2015
93% Marvel's Jessica Jones: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It is a Marvel piece more concerned with aftermath than origin, which is a major change of pace for the brand. " ‐
Posted Nov 18, 2015
2.5/4 67% The Night Before (2015) ""The Night Before" is a well-intentioned comedy with some big laughs and some big misfires, but it ultimately works because Rogen and his well-cast buddies ground it in a way that makes them likable. " ‐
Posted Nov 18, 2015
4/5 100% Fargo: Season 2 Episode 6 "Crossing the halfway point of this brilliant second season, we reach what could be considered a transitional episode. It's filled with cliffhangers and unanswered questions, but amplified with enough tension to also entertain. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Nov 17, 2015
46% Chicago Med: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Like Chicago Fire,Chicago Med is a really quick hour of television. Nothing lags, nothing bores, even the familiar. " ‐

3/4 78% Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans (2015) ""Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans" is an interesting documentary because it approaches its well-known subject from an unexpected angle. " ‐
Posted Nov 13, 2015
53% Into the Badlands: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "When Wu and Csokas are off-screen and people aren't kicking each other in the face, Into the Badlands is deadly dull. And even when they are, you keep waiting for the next fight to break out. " ‐
Posted Nov 12, 2015
88% W/ Bob and David: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "People found Mr. Show, and people will find With Bob and David. And people will laugh. " ‐
Posted Nov 11, 2015
4/5 100% Fargo: Season 2 Episode 5 "Truly great shows cast even their smallest roles perfectly, and two of the best performances this week came from Emily Haine as Noreen and Greg Bryk as Virgil. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Nov 10, 2015
13% Edge: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "What are you doing, Shane Black? " ‐
Posted Nov 5, 2015
57% Patriot: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Patriot has some moments that work, but it mostly feels like it's trying too hard to be edgy and idiosyncratic. " ‐
Posted Nov 5, 2015
56% Z: The Beginning of Everything: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "I have no idea what this is. I watch a lot of TV, but rarely have I seen something so formless and oddly shapeless as this dramedy premiere. " ‐
Posted Nov 5, 2015
75% Highston: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Yes, this is one of those comedies that telegraphs its unique sense of humor with every other line of dialogue. However, that doesn't change the fact that some of it is very funny. " ‐
Posted Nov 5, 2015
71% Good Girls Revolt: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Good Girls Revolt takes place in a thematically rich era, has a strong cast, and top production values... Is it Mad Men? Not even close. But it could be something unique for a company that needs a strong drama. " ‐
Posted Nov 5, 2015
89% One Mississippi: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Holofcener gives the premiere interesting shape and Notaro has some solid acting ability (not always true for writers and comics). " ‐
Posted Nov 5, 2015
100% Master of None: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Master of None is so confident in its tone and execution that it almost feels like a show in its fourth or fifth year. This may be the most confident first season of a comedy since Veep. " ‐
Posted Nov 3, 2015
5/5 100% Fargo: Season 2 Episode 4 "The fourth episode of a program like this can often be a deal-breaker... And so fans of the show should be happy that this week's Fargo was arguably the season's best. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Nov 3, 2015
98% Ash vs. Evil Dead: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "I'm happy the producers of the upgrade made a very clear decision not to "upgrade" the proceedings too much. Things still feel tactile. When the buckets of blood pour, you can feel the stickiness. " ‐
Posted Oct 28, 2015
