Marry Me: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" I'm hungry for a rom-com that shows us a couple with their own bent definition of destiny and Marry Me could be it. We just have to hope that it gets a little easier to root for Annie and Jake as time goes by. "

The Walking Dead: Season 5 (TV, 2014)

" For one thing, it's exciting television. For another, it adheres to the one principle that every television show should always stick to, yet few bother to do so: Tell your story and move on. "

Dracula Untold (2014)

"Dracula Untold is not a masterful or deep re-introduction to the franchise; but as genre fare, it's relatively fun in its depiction of the monster in a different light."

Homeland: Season 4 (TV, 2014)

Annabelle (2014)

Gracepoint: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Season 2 (TV, 2014)

Key & Peele: Season 4 (TV, 2014)

Forever: Season 1 (TV, 2014)
