70% Sons of Anarchy: Season 7 Episode 8 " "The Separation of Crows" seemed primed for further shocking developments. Strangely, the episode merely rehashes much of the same ground, biding time until the bloody series finale and leaving viewers in a state of disorientation. " ‐ Slant Magazine

Posted Dec 31, 2014
100% Sons of Anarchy: Season 7 Episode 2 " "Toil and Till" amplifies the theme of brutal retaliation to another level, piggybacking on the sporadic splashes of violence in last week's premiere to expand the battlefield across multiple California zip codes. " ‐ Slant Magazine
Posted Dec 28, 2014
95% Beauty and The Beast (La Belle et la bĂȘte) (1946) " If the first act of La Belle et la BĂȘte showcases familial insecurity in all its ferociousness, the second part, which actually involves a monster, is amazingly peaceful, full of surrealist cinema tricks and haunting mise-en-scene.
