Lucy (2014)

"Lucy will not speak to a wide audience but those that fall within its target reach should be rewarded with some thought-provoking science fiction."

Hercules (2014)

"If the phrase "Brett Ratner's Hercules starring The Rock" sounds like a fun movie to you, then you'll get your money's worth from Hercules."

Boardwalk Empire: Season 4 (TV, 2013)

" Boardwalk Empire has developed so many characters and separate plot threads (some worthwhile and some not so much) that it has effectively segued into an accomplished ensemble piece. "

Boardwalk Empire: Season 3 (TV, 2012)

" Boardwalk Empire has grown into a series interested in the rippling effect that competition, greed and duplicity can have on an individual and the choices he or she makes. "

Boardwalk Empire: Season 2 (TV, 2011)

" Season 2 is already shaping up to be every bit the powerhouse hour of television the first season was. "

Boardwalk Empire: Season 1 (TV, 2010)

" Consider it a warning shot to the other networks: HBO is back with another hit show and they are laying claim to Sunday night. "

Sex Tape (2014)

"A jumbled mix of on-the-nose comedy set pieces and contrived emotional threads that squander any potential within Sex Tape's entertaining premise."

Planes: Fire And Rescue (2014)

"Planes: Fire & Rescue is a better made film than its predecessor on a technical level, but otherwise just as generic (in some ways, more so) on a storytelling level."

The Purge: Anarchy (2014)

"A step down from the original in terms of narrative but the basic promise of the series - thrills, kills, and mayhem - is still fulfilled in satisfying fashion."

Married: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

Hemlock Grove: Season 2 (TV, 2014)

The Strain: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" When you're plastering posters of a worm digging its way into an eyeball all over the place, you better earn that eerie imagery and Guillermo del Toro's The Strain absolutely does. "

Masters of Sex: Season 2 (TV, 2014)

" That's what makes Masters of Sex so heartbreaking, beautiful and funny simultaneously. There are no clear cut villains or heroes, just people being people and it's something Ashford should never change. "

Welcome to Sweden: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" Welcome to Sweden mines laughs from mildly uncomfortable situations and awkwardness in a way that no NBC show has since the good old days of the Steve Carell-lead Office. "

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014)

"Dawn of the Planet of the Apes takes everything great about the first film and kicks it up to a higher level. One of the best (and most technically proficient) films of 2014."

Deliver Us from Evil (2014)

"It might not be the scariest movie of the year but, thanks to a compelling look at evil in our world, Deliver Us From Evil is still very frightening."

Ben Kendrick

Tammy (2014)

"Tammy is another effective demonstration of McCarthy's comedic abilities - but much like its protagonist, the film is too jumbled and directionless for its own good."

Earth to Echo (2014)

"A fresh-yet-familiar sci-fi adventure for adolescents that's not as good as it could've been, but still delivers a solid good time, nonetheless."

Under the Dome: Season 2 (TV, 2014)

The Leftovers: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

Girl Meets World: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" It's a surprisingly terrific [children's show] which not only manages to capture the essence of the much-loved Boy Meets World, but it also begins an exciting new chapter for the Matthews family - one that's worth keeping an eye on, regardless of age. "

Snowpiercer (2014)

" A unique vision, strong execution (in action, wit, and humor) as well as compelling characters culminate in one of the year's best dark horse hits."

Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014)

"Age of Extinction won't win over Transformers movie skeptics but Michael Bay succeeds in giving his fans what they are looking for - unmatched CGI spectacle."

Teen Wolf: Season 4 (TV, 2014)

" It's starting to feel very much like the set pieces were written in advance, and that the justification for them was scribbled into the margins of the script much later. "

Tyrant: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" The story doesn't just feel like a deliberate homage to The Godfather; it feels like an uninspired mash-up of several prominent television tropes from the last 15 years or so. "

Almost Royal: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" (Almost Royal) feels like a take on Sacha Baron-Cohen's antics in Borat and Da Ali G Show. But whereas Cohen's work seemed harshly satirical and occasionally mean-spirited, this aims to be more broad, message-less, fun and easy. "

The Last Ship: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

Defiance: Season 2 (TV, 2014)

" The show takes an unabashed stance on constantly drawing up such a mind-bogglingly assorted set of characters and alien species that the average episode might just trump happy hour at a Mos Eisley cantina in terms of diversity. "

Jersey Boys (2014)

"Jersey Boys is an enjoyable but ultimately straightforward stage-to-screen transfer - over-polished and lacking in the raw energy that made its source material so enchanting."

Think Like a Man Too (2014)

"An amusing matinée or rental at best, Think Like a Man Too rests on its laurels - and, as a result, pales in comparison to its much funnier predecessor."

Louie: Season 4 (TV, 2014)

" Louie isn't an etch-a-sketch that can be shaken clean every time CK wants to go in a different direction. No more starting fires and walking away. "

How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)

22 Jump Street (2014)

"22 Jump Street pulls off the comedy sequel balancing act better than just about any comparative franchise - with extra points for skewing its own sequelness."

The Fault In Our Stars (2014)

Crossbones: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" When a legendary two-time Academy Award-nominated actor like John Malkovich decides to take part in a new pirate series - Crossbones, written and created by Luther's Neil Cross, as well as James V. Hart and Amanda Welles - one must take notice. "

A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014)

Chef (2014)

Maleficent (2014)

"In its attempt to depict the 'real story' of Sleeping Beauty, this Django Unchained of Disney fairy tales never soars as high as its bad-girl-gone-good namesake."

The Goldbergs: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014)

" While it may be a few weeks before Garlin settles into his character (it is the pilot, after all), there's more than enough reason to give The Goldberg's a watch - and not just because of all the REO Speedwagon songs. "

Blended (2014)

"There's a tenderness to the story that should connect with modern moviegoing (blended) families but the film is held back by Sandler's usual low-brow humor and cheap gags."

Belle (2014)

"Belle might be a little too polite at times; though, it has an intelligence that should even make it appealing to moviegoers who aren't usually keen on corset period dramas."

Godzilla (2014)

"A crowd-pleasing return for Godzilla with poignant human drama, blockbuster spectacle, and a third act brawl that sets a new bar for the King of the Monsters."
