The Mindy Project: Season 3 (TV, 2014)

" In love with the idea of love and occasionally eager to pay tribute to the clever romantic comedies of Nora Ephron, The Mindy Project is now in uncharted territory. "

No Good Deed (2014)

"In the end, No Good Deed is pretty much what it promises to be: your standard home-invasion thriller."

The Drop (2014)

"The Drop is ultimately a solid mood piece, with strong performances that help elevate it above its derivative story elements."

Sons of Anarchy: Season 7 (TV, 2014)

" In the stripped down or emptied out persona of Jax Teller, Sons of Anarchy finds the simplicity that may very well drive it through the remaining 12 episodes. "

Boardwalk Empire: Season 5 (TV, 2014)

" All the various threads seem ready to tie into one another fairly quickly - and with only eight episodes to the season, that's a good sign. "

The League: Season 6 (TV, 2014)

" The League runs a risk with its "comedy and then we'll sort the rest out later" approach, but only if the show stops being funny. "

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. "

Kevin Yeoman

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."

Sandy Schaefer

The Giver (2014)

"The Giver is a surprisingly generic addition to the young adult film genre - especially for a story that champions individuality and self-expression."

The Killing: Season 4 (TV, 2014)

" Like its broken characters, this broken drama kept plugging away, trying to achieve that one story that would validate all the bad choices it had made in the past. "

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. "

David Griffin

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."

The Hundred-Foot Journey (2014)

"The Hundred-Foot Journey is a by the numbers, yet charming, handsome, and well-acted dramedy that the whole family can enjoy."

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

"TMNT is shallow popcorn entertainment - but within the spectrum of reboots and remakes, it falls on the safe side of honorable."

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)

"Guardians of the Galaxy may blast off another successful franchise for Marvel, but it has a few parsecs left to go before it can truly claim greatness."

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 1 (TV, 2010)

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."

Ben Kendrick

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)

The Strain: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

Perri Nemiroff

42 97%

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)

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."

Posted Jul 3, 2014

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)
