8/10 No Score Yet Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Season 3 (TV, 2010-2011) "I also have to commend the animation in this episode, which included some stunning shots of a rain-soaked Kamino that looked pretty much photo-realistic.

Posted Oct 30, 2015
7.8/10 No Score Yet Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Season 2 (TV, 2009-2010) "It's also great to see more ongoing storylines developed - while the specific story in the Jedi Archives is wrapped up by the end of the half hour, there are major threads set into place for the next episode and perhaps beyond.

8.5/10 100% Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 3 (TV, 2015) "SHIELD is an ever-evolving show and Season 3's premiere found it, more than ever, truly becoming something some fans have wanted since the start - a show about superheroes, not simply a show set in a world where superheroes exist. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Sep 30, 2015
8.8/10 83% The Last Man on Earth: Season 2 (TV, 2015-2016) "I can see this being a big turn off for a mainstream audience, but I love just how far they're going here with pushing the boundaries of a what you'd see in a half hour network sitcom. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Sep 28, 2015

6.8/10 83% The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 11 "This... was a very Andrea-centric episode.. It was a challenge going in, given how much this show has bungled this particular character, making her increasingly exasperating and frustrating to watch. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jul 30, 2015
9.3/10 83% The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 8 "The Walking Dead has turned into a show that is perhaps less grounded and "realistic" -- in the midst of its genre scenario -- than it once felt, but this is easily the most entertaining and exciting that it's been for a prolonged period. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jul 30, 2015

Posted Jul 29, 2015
8.5/10 100% The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 5 "It was understandable to have "Say the Word" be more of an aftermath episode, taking a step back after the huge events last week. But it was also pretty jam-packed in its own right, as The Governor revealed just how twisted he was. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jul 29, 2015

7.3/10 50% The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 16 "The Walking Dead finale had a lot to deal with and there were certainly some exciting and crowd pleasing moments. But it also suffered from some dramatic missteps and off moments that ultimately made it good but not great. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jul 29, 2015
8.6/10 100% The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 3 "The TV series has gone for the exact opposite approach as far as the appearance of The Governor and Woodbury - and while I love the comic book, I think this depiction works very well. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jul 29, 2015

Posted Jul 28, 2015
8.5/10 100% The Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 12 "Overall though, this was a suitably strong swan song for a character as important to the show as Shane - and I thought it was kind of cool to have it happen in the penultimate episode, not the season finale, as we might predict. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jul 28, 2015
8/10 93% The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 2 "While not as strong as the season premiere, the second episode of Season 3 kept up the momentum, with the struggle to save Hershel's life intermixed with Rick and the group getting to know those prisoners they came across last week. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jul 28, 2015
6.5/10 67% The Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 11 "And here we are, a week after the excellent "18 Miles Out" aired, and we get the especially dull "Judge, Jury, Executioner." Even a notable character death at the end couldn't do much to save this one. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jul 28, 2015
9.5/10 83% The Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 10 ""18 Miles Out" was easily one of the best episodes of The Walking Dead so far. An extremely tense episode that both felt big and bold... and more specific and focused... it really showed off the strengths of the series. " ‐ IGN Movies

8/10 92% The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? (2015) "The personalities involved and the stories they tell are worthwhile and offer some great insight into just what a struggle it can be when so many people try to work together to pull off a film of this scope. " ‐ IGN Movies

Posted Jul 27, 2015
92% The Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 7 "Well... I feel weird saying, "I loved it!", but it certainly worked, didn't it? It was very powerful and succeeded as the sucker punch it was intended as. " ‐ IGN Movies

It had scary zombie scenes, good action, interesting character interaction and a revelation at the end that gave us a whole lot to process. " ‐ IGN Movies
