Sons of Anarchy: Season 7 - Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em (TV Episode)

Gotham: Season 1 - The Mask (TV Episode)
Gotham: Season 1 - Penguin's Umbrella (TV Episode)
"This isn't the kind of episode the series can, or should, give us every week. But when they do put all the other action on hold, it needs to feel special. For the most part, "Penguin's Umbrella" did. "
Gotham: Season 1 - Spirit of the Goat (TV Episode)
Gotham: Season 1 - Viper (TV Episode)
"Gotham continues to feel like a project where no one's entirely sure what the show is -- or, at least, how to make it function as a weekly TV series that has to offer some kind of episodic closure even as the different arcs build. "
Gotham: Season 1 - Arkham (TV Episode)
Gotham: Season 1 - The Balloonman (TV Episode)
"Though the show's narrative continues to sprawl all across Gotham's underworld, "The Balloonman" was in many ways the most focused episode of the show so far... That said, there are still some kinks that need to be worked out. "
Gotham: Season 1 - Selina Kyle (TV Episode)
The Interview (2014)
"The Interview is laugh out loud funny all the way through, and once again proves that Rogen and Goldberg will do anything, no matter how dark, for a big laugh, and that character is just as important as punchlines in their work. "
Key & Peele: Season 4 (TV, 2014)
"Given the success of the show so far... it would have been really easy to come back this season and coast. Instead, the duo and their creative partners decided to try something else. Key & Peele took a big risk, and it led to a huge creative reward. "

Still Alice (2015)
Top Five (2014)
"It's still fun, still sweet, and still a pleasure to hear Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Wallace Shawn and the gang voice these characters, but I checked my watch several times and would have probably preferred it at something closer to Toy Story Toons length. "
"[It] has some funny lines from Plaza while occasionally inserting Grumpy Cat into ridiculous situations, but is mostly trying to do what it can within the limitations of its budget, its network and its leading feline. "
Gotham: Season 1 - Pilot (TV Episode)
"The easy joke is to call this film "the best Iranian vampire film I've ever seen," but that's reductive and unfair to this gorgeous, sad, haunting accomplishment by writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour. "
The Mule (2014)
State of Affairs: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015)
American Sniper (2015)
"For people who want a perfunctory tribute to a man who seems to have lived an anything-but-perfunctory life, "American Sniper" should thrill, but for anyone looking to this as a film first, it is a flat, oddly stilted misfire. "

The Theory of Everything (2014)
The Comeback: Season 2 (TV, 2014)
"I had little patience for the show back in '05, even as I admired the utter commitment of King and Kudrow. The new series is no more pleasant a viewing experience, but in some ways it's an even more impressive achievement from the duo. "

Happy Valley: Season 1 (TV, 2014)
Mom: Season 2 (TV, 2014-2015)
Olive Kitteridge: Season One (TV, 2014)
"I like the idea of HBO as a place where serious novels can be adapted with top talent, and in a relatively faithful fashion that doesn't have to pander to box office in the way a feature film would. "
