The Zero Theorem (2014)

"It's bonkers and brilliant, folding in pop culture icons with classical influences."

This Is Where I Leave You (2014)

"An engaging and fun exploration of the dynamics of the ties that bind and sometimes gag. "

The Mysteries of Laura: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" Oy. The awful jokes and atrocious "wannabe screwball comedy" dialogue made me wish The Mysteries of Laura was a sitcom instead of a totally tone-deaf hour-long procedural. "

The Boxtrolls (2014)

"The Boxtrolls isn't just a superb movie for the whole family, it's the best animated film of the year."

Red Band Society: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" It's entertaining and mostly offers the right level of emotional payoff for fans. Its characters are well-rounded and differ enough in age and interest level to bring viewers of different ages to the show. "

Deepsea Challenge 3D (2014)

"All in all, Deepsea Challenge 3D is a grand, thrilling, and inspirational ride."

Tusk (2014)

"The problem with Tusk, ultimately, is that it doesn't hold up to scrutiny as a movie, despite its assemblage of commendably unusual scenes. "

Foxcatcher (2014)

"I could dig, analyze and appreciate Foxcatcher for years. All of that being said, Foxcatcher is remarkable."

The Hotwives of Orlando: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" I have so few complaints about this show, I'm kind of shocked. Everything works for me, from the always-changing opening to the non sequitur "Coming Up" segments to the over-edited flashback clips. "

Nick Venable

The Imitation Game (2014)

"Morten Tydlum's The Imitation Game is a first-rate biopic, a thrilling espionage game that's beautifully crafted and acted."

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (2014)

"This movie feels more like an actor's reel than a cohesive narrative. "

The Skeleton Twins (2014)

"Uneven, but not uninteresting."

Dolphin Tale 2 (2014)

Nightcrawler (2014)

"It holds a mirror up to a major city in a modern time, but introduces a psychotic, sociopathic tour guide who instantly becomes one for the ages. "

Sean O'Connell

The Equalizer (2014)

"The Equalizer remakes a 1980s TV drama. But it reclaims some of Hollywood's '80s attitude, in the process."

Men, Women & Children (2014)

"With all due respect to the male actors, I walked out of Jason Reitman's new Men, Women & Children in awe of the ladies... and its their stories that stick with me days later."

Sarah Landon and the Paranormal Hour (2007)

"Clocking in at just over eighty minutes, Sarah Landon is a filmmaker's clinic in consistency: how to be consistently awful."

To Be Takei (2014)

"Director Jennifer M. Kroot delivers something that is as profound as it is funny and uplifting. "

Sons of Anarchy: Season 7 (TV, 2014)

" He's [creator, Kurt Sutter] far more interested in giving his longtime audience an explosive, adrenaline-fueled final chapter to one of the darkest and oddly comedic dramas to ever hit the boob tube. "

The Last Of Robin Hood (2014)

"It's less a portrait of a maligned and misunderstood girl, and more a lazy excuse to sift through her dirty laundry. "

The Cosmopolitans: Season One (TV, 2014)

" The Cosmopolitans suffers from dull and awkwardly presented conversations, one-note characters and a storyline that does essentially nothing beyond make Americans look sort of goofy in the presence of Europeans, who aren't presented any better. "

As Above/So Below (2014)

"This is a terrible film. Just an ugly, disappointing exercise that actually had potential, if it somehow could have landed in the hands of a director who understood the function of a camera. "

Sean O'Connell

Starred Up (2014)

"Boldly and brilliantly made. Starred Up is raw, relentless and riveting. "

Kristy Puchko

The November Man (2014)

"The cinematic equivalent of a Golden Parachute, a paycheck role in a burgeoning franchise that may pad Brosnan's retirement fund but asks very little - in terms of performance - from its rugged, disinterested lead."

Sean O'Connell

Angels in America: Season 1 (TV, 2003)

" Yes it's a miniseries, but that's a technicality. This is the finest piece of filmmaking to be made this century! I would give this fifty stars if I could. I swear! "

Bill Beyrer

If I Stay (2014)

"Like the car riding along that snowy road, the movie starts to swerve into uncomfortably melodramatic territories, and it isn't long before any forward progress established by director R.J. Cutler smashes into an embankment, as well. "

What If (2014)

"'What If' is 'When Harry Met Sally...' for the current generation. I guess you could call it 'When Harry Potter Met Zoe Kazan....' Has anyone used that yet? No? Good, then I'm stealing it. "

When The Game Stands Tall (2014)

"Trips over itself while trying to sell its product very hard as a faith-based blockbuster."

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

"Feels like a half-hearted obligation. The plot is disjointed, the pace grueling. The performances range from flat-lining to bonkers. "

The Giver (2014)

"Jeff Bridges is so amusingly philosophic in the spectacular role of mentor and sage - the overly experienced veteran who has so much to share with his younger cast mates but needs to pick and choose his moments. "

Sean O'Connell

Life After Beth (2014)

"Life After Beth is content to meander a bit throughout its runtime, ditching story momentum in favor of its overqualified cast."

Frank (2014)

"Being so close to these deeply miserable people made me feel smothered, and desperate for escape. "

Let's Be Cops (2014)

The Expendables 3 (2014)

"Even by the standards of this particular series, The Expendables 3 is barely a movie."

Partners: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" Partners has an opportunity to push the line with its humor, beyond the kind of jokes we might see from a similar comedy over at CBS. Partners barely approaches the line, which is a shame. "

Who's Your Caddy? (2007)

"The lackadaiscal plot, cheesy jokes and lack of originality make Caddy nothing more than a trashy comedy, but at least it's occasionally an entertaining one."

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

"Entirely hollow, poorly put together, and will require an audience on its level of stupidity to survive. Don't be one of its supporters."

Outlander: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" There's always a challenge with adapting a book series to television. Outlander finds its footing in that respect early on, clearly embracing its wonderful source material, while marching forward as a serialized drama that's well worth watching. "

Kelly West

Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014)

"Sharknado 2 isn't aiming for that kind of subtlety, as the tone leans more toward thrills and action rather than tension and fear."

Get On Up (2014)

"If anything this is more of a cautionary tale about capitalism, about Brown coming from the bottom and seeking to assert his dominance with success."

College (2008)

"College is painfully stale, pathetically unfunny, and I can't think of a single reason why you should sit through [it]."

The Apparition (2012)

"None of this matters at all because the main characters are completely unlikable, and the momentum is consistently ruined by poor decision-making."
