Million Dollar Arm (2014)

"For a heart-warming movie that praises risk taking and out of the box thinking, Million Dollar Arm plays its narrative surprisingly safe."

Locke (2014)

"Locke has its flaws, but manages to satisfy as a minimalist work of social realism that is both dramatically-rich and often quite engaging."

Penny Dreadful: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" I'm in, and between the rich setting, curious mythology and enchanting characters, Penny Dreadful seems to have all the potential in the world. "

Maron: Season 2 (TV, 2014)

" Maron actually comes out on top and that's a clear sign of growth as the show enters season 2. "

Neighbors (2014)

"Some will be underwhelmed by Neighbors' reliance on laughs over substance but most viewers will find plenty to enjoy in its outrageous comedy setups and likable characters."

Fed Up (2014)

"Fed Up is imperative viewing for just about anyone in America who is currently eating food."

Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return (2014)

"A glorified 90-minute distraction for kids - not an enchanting and memorable addition to the Wizard of Oz movie pantheon."

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

"Sets a new bar for big and splashy comic book blockbusters; unfortunately, while The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is enthralling, in the end, it's also pretty empty."

Brick Mansions (2014)

"Outside of a few entertaining action moments, Brick Mansions is a clumsy mess that rarely lands a memorable punch."

The Other Woman (2014)

"Not at all mandatory theater viewing, but as far as date night goes, both guys and gals will find themselves in pretty good hands with this one."

The Quiet Ones (2014)

"Full of intriguing concepts and potential, but by the end much of that promise goes unfulfilled - with the film as a whole nearly sliding off the rails in the process."

Orphan Black: Season 2 (TV, 2014)

" Orphan Black could be in for yet another innovative, smart and powerful run. "

Dom Hemingway (2014)

"Dom Hemingway delivers on half of its well-meaning intentions - prioritizing eccentric comedy beats over its unconventional tale of love and self-reflection."

Under the Skin (2014)

"For cinephiles that enjoy artistic debate more than concrete answers, Under the Skin provides an intriguing platform for discussion and reflection."

A Haunted House 2 (2014)

"Even fans of the series should wait until they can see Haunted House 2 at home - where they can take as many verbal potshots at its awfulness as they like."

Posted Apr 18, 2014

Sandy Schaefer

Transcendence (2014)

"They must've titled this movie with total irony, because Transcendence stumbles hard in its attempt to rise above."

Fargo: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" It works as both a polite nod to the original and an indication that things have been changed, as Hawley ushers in a batch of similar but different characters, plopping them into roughly the same milieu. "

Posted Apr 17, 2014

Kevin Yeoman

Mad Men: Season 7 (TV, 2014-2015)

" The equivalence of Don and Freddy is actually far more pronounced than previously imagined. "

Rio 2 (2014)

"Enjoyable music and traces of authentic Brazilian spirit provide reasonable compensation for Rio 2's derivative qualities and storytelling flaws (if only barely so)."

Posted Apr 11, 2014

Sandy Schaefer

Draft Day (2014)

"Draft Day is an enjoyable and sentimental sports drama that, sadly, falls short of greatness - one that might also require die-hard football fans to suspend serious disbelief."

Oculus (2014)

"The unique stylistic approach to haunted house horror will be a novelty to fans of the genre - just don't be disappointed when it all ends with a fizzle instead of a bang."

Silicon Valley: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" Silicon Valley takes a skewed look at the pressures associated with finding rapid success, and how money too often becomes the determining factor of a person's level of achievement, rather than the effort and the outcome of building something. "

Posted Apr 8, 2014

Kevin Yeoman

Turn: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" The problematic nature of TURN does not arise from its absence of fantastical creatures and places, but from the lack of any kind of charisma from its leading cast. "

Game of Thrones: Season 4 (TV, 2014)

" Every character beat feels like it's been crafted to its finest point, while each scene carries with it the possibility of drastic change - but that is only because the series has done such a fantastic job conditioning the audience to expect such things. "

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

"A timely narrative, deep exploration of fan-favorite characters, and unforgettable action set pieces make Captain America: The Winter Soldier one of Marvel's best."

Sabotage (2014)

"Those just hoping for some good-ol' action fun - you get one major shootout set piece, a couple small sequences, plenty of blood, gore and foul language and that's about it."

Kofi Outlaw

Noah (2014)

"Viewers who give Aronofsky a chance will find that, despite differences of opinion and belief, there's plenty of universal value in this gripping tale of good overcoming evil."

Posted Mar 28, 2014

Ben Kendrick

28 79%

The Raid 2 (2014)

"Falls short of matching the simple pleasure of the first installment, but for action fans, there is still plenty of next-level choreography work present in Evans' sequel."

Posted Mar 28, 2014

Kofi Outlaw

Bad Words (2014)

"Plays out as a farce that (sadly) just isn't all that insightful, witty, or creative with how it approaches its premise - one that is kind of funny but only goes so far."

Sandy Schaefer

Muppets Most Wanted (2014)

"Kids and Muppet fans will find plenty to enjoy but nearly every element of the film fails to capture the heart and larger social relevance featured in 2011's The Muppets."

The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

"A wondrous celebration of everything that Wes Anderson holds dear - while moving farther away from being a universally recommendable title for casual viewers."

Divergent (2014)

"Divergent falls somewhere in a middle ground between high points of The Hunger Games and the low points of The Twilight Saga."

13 Sins (2014)

"The logic behind the whole operation isn't entirely sound, but Webber's performance is so engaging and Stamm has such a firm handle on every other element of this production that those flimsy narrative elements rarely pulls you out of the experience."

Perri Nemiroff

Need For Speed (2014)

"It's not particularly smart or original, but car lovers and films fans that are willing to switch off their brains should find Need for Speed offers an amusing ride."

Ben Kendrick

Veronica Mars (2014)

"A no-brainer for Veronica Mars fans, but for viewers that have never seen the TV show, the movie will be (slightly) confusing and offer only average mystery drama in return."

Posted Mar 14, 2014

Ben Kendrick

Mr. Peabody & Sherman (2014)

"Mr. Peabody & Sherman has a heart and mind but the film is still a second-tier contender when compared with similar CGI animated movie offerings."

300: Rise of an Empire (2014)

"Like the real Battle of Artemisium, which often takes a backseat to the Battle of Thermopylae, Rise of an Empire cannot step out of 300's lofty shadow."

Mixology: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" There's the hope that these other characters catch when they're introduced, but that's asking viewers for a lot of patience, especially for a sitcom. "

The Americans: Season 2 (TV, 2014)

" We know how the Cold War turned out, but as viewers, we're far less certain as to the fates of these characters who may lack our knowledge, but understand full well the potential cost of the games without frontiers they're playing at. "

Vikings: Season 2 (TV, 2014)

Hannibal: Season 2 (TV, 2014)

Pompeii (2014)

3 Days To Kill (2014)

"3 Days to Kill offers little substance that hasn't been handled more effectively in previous Luc Besson directed Euro-action/thrillers."

Sandy Schaefer

House of Cards: Season 2 (TV, 2014)

" House of Cards doesn't simply plod along like Frank and Claire's leisurely jog connecting the seasons; it jumps right off a narrative cliff without checking to see what's below. "

Kevin Yeoman

Winter's Tale (2014)

"Despite an often muddled story, the meaningful fantasy yarn about life and love in Winter's Tale will at least leave viewers with something to mull over afterwards."

About Last Night (2014)

RoboCop (2014)

Vampire Academy (2014)

"Vampire Academy will likely only satisfy fans of the books. To most everyone else, it's another disposable addition to the growing pile of cheap YA movie adaptations."

The Monuments Men (2014)

"An entertaining but extremely uneven film that might satisfy historical drama fans but falls very short of realizing the full potential in its gripping premise."
