The November Man (2014)

"In a genre where smarts and thrills are pivotal, The November Man delivers only routine (and uninspired) spy drama."

As Above/So Below (2014)

"As Above, So Below milks a surprising amount of richness from its premise and found-footage format, but is hampered by its inability to fully develop both."

Doctor Who: Season 8 (TV, 2014)

" There are more than enough fun moments to at least keep fans interested enough to tune in to next week's episode with the Daleks. With a new Doctor, we'd say that's a win. "

Justified: Season 4 (TV, 2013)

" Season 4 will likely be remembered for its wonderfully executed (but sometimes wildly digressive) storyline that did without a typical big bad - a move that seemed risky at times, but ultimately paid off by putting the characters ahead of the plot. "

Justified: Season 3 (TV, 2012)

" The great thing about Justified is the way it fills itself with characters who live and die by a code that strives to keep even the most dastardly of characters from crossing some sort of ethical or moral line they have put down for themselves. "

Justified: Season 2 (TV, 2011)

" While Timothy Olyphant and Walton Goggins play their cat and mouse game with practiced skill, it's the two new women of Justified's second season that really shine. "

Justified: Season 1 (TV, 2010)

" Justified is a solid show that has the potential to be winner for FX and one that I'll continue to watch. "

If I Stay (2014)

"If I Stay's blend of teen romance and supernatural melodrama doesn't break the YA mold, but it's a decent addition to the genre nonetheless."

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

"Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is a jumbled but still enjoyable followup that, for most moviegoers, arrived on the scene too late."

Let's Be Cops (2014)

"Let's Be Cops tries to offer coming-of-age gravitas, action movie thrills and comedic slapstick, but never excels at any one of them."

The Expendables 3 (2014)

"The Expendables 3 offers its share of old-school action thrills and fun, yet it has the same problems as its predecessors - and then some."

The Giver (2014)

The Killing: Season 4 (TV, 2014)

The Knick: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" The Knick takes the familiar tropes of everything from E.R. to St. Elsewhere to Chicago Hope and more and transposes them into a setting that radically changes the game by demonstrating the struggles of a time in which modern medicine was in its infancy. "

Outlander: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" Whether you're a loyal fan of the books or a newcomer to Outlander, Starz latest entry in the world of television dramas looks to be a story you'll want to stick with until the end. "

Into The Storm (2014)

"Into the Storm is another found footage failure - a gimmicky natural disaster film that fails to provide exciting tornado action or impactful human drama."

Get On Up (2014)

"Get on Up has elements of greatness but ends up being just one step above a standard musician biopic - as result of its fairly derivative narrative"

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

Boardwalk Empire: Season 4 (TV, 2013)

Boardwalk Empire: Season 3 (TV, 2012)

Sex Tape (2014)

Planes: Fire And Rescue (2014)

Masters of Sex: Season 2 (TV, 2014)

Girl Meets World: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

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. "
