House of Cards: Season 3 (TV, 2015)
" As I would never underestimate Frank's ability to change the course of events with a quick sleight of hand, I wouldn't count out the show's writers quite yet. I will definitely be streaming the entire season this weekend. "
The Hunting Ground (2015)
Queen and Country (2015)
The Lazarus Effect (2015)
" The Lazarus Effect doesn't exactly break new ground, but it nonetheless finds plenty to relish in the mouldering bits it stitches together as it gives classic themes about death, life and the soul a literal and figurative shot in the arm. "
Wild Tales (2015)
" Damián Szifrón spins a series of superior yarns, all of them unpredictable yet at the same time recognizably human. Any anthology film runs the risk of being judged by its weakest link, but there's not a single dud in the bunch. "
The Odd Couple: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Drunktown's Finest (2015)
The DUFF (2015)
Hot Tub Time Machine 2 (2015)
Best Of Enemies (2015)
" The two men made serious policy discussions wickedly entertaining and decidedly personal, and Neville and Gordon knew that they had a gold mine in the debate footage that is the centerpiece of their movie. "
Da Sweet Blood of Jesus (2015)
The Slap: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
What We Do In The Shadows (2015)
" So smart and perceptive about the quotidian ups and downs of its protagonists' lives that it's almost a jolt when, say, they start levitating off the ground or get into a passive-aggressive argument with a pack of werewolves. "
The Last 5 Years (2015)
Fifty Shades of Grey (2015)
" "The stylish and mostly satisfying film will be [a blockbuster], and deservedly so. Starring a vivacious Dakota Johnson and a game Jamie Dornan, Taylor-Johnson's erotic romance is a skillful distillation of James' first book." "
Better Call Saul: Season 1 (TV, 2014)
" Within the first 20 minutes or so of AMC's Breaking Bad prequel series Better Call Saul, it quickly becomes clear that Bob Odenkirk is a worthy successor to the role of unlikely leading man in a New Mexico-based series. "
Seventh Son (2015)
" "Seventh Son" tells a story of dragons, witches, ghosts and ogres, but the most fantastic thing about it is the idea that someone thought this lumpy, bumpy and swollen sack of tired tropes and cluttered CGI would attract audiences. "
Love, Rosie (2015)
McFarland USA (2015)
Wild Card (2015)
Mad As Hell (2015)
" A documentary with a paralyzingly narrow focus, and one whose bigger question - What is happening to the news as we know it in this age of fractured and freewheeling media?- is shunned in favor of a simpler one: Doesn't Cenk Uygur seem like a great guy? "
Jupiter Ascending (2015)
" There is no "up" in space, and there is no "the top" over which The Wachowskis will not go in Jupiter Ascending, a sci-fi saga that's convoluted and silly, but also exciting and enthralling over the course of its two-hours-and-change running time. "
The Loft (2015)
" The more we get to know this crew, the harder it is to care about any of them; the men are all portrayed as lecherous horndogs, while the women are either shrews, ice queens or self-professed whores. "
Project Almanac (2015)
" Project Almanac has enough heart and brains to keep it steady even as the camera isn't, and its wires-and-widgets variation on "The Monkey's Paw" is very much informed and improved by the charm and capabilities of its young cast. "
Red Army (2015)
The Boy Next Door (2015)
" "Despite a sidelong glance at Guzman's behind, the ass-ploitative nature of 'The Boy Next Door' mostly focuses on Lopez herself, a decision that robs the film of the symbiosis of fear and attraction that makes the erotic thriller such escapist fun." "
Strange Magic (2015)
" That terrible character design, combined with a painful lack of laughs and a crushing plethora of ghastly songs, makes "Strange Magic" perhaps the worst animated feature ever to come out of Disney. "
Black Sea (2015)
Still Alice (2015)
" "Still Alice"might sound maudlin, or more on the frequency of a made-for-TV movie than what it is. But this is not only sensitive material handled with tact, it's also sensitive material bolstered and braced by Moore's stunning performance. "
The Wedding Ringer (2015)
Appropriate Behavior (2015)
" Let's just say that the movie's final section is so nail-bitingly tense, thanks to a skillful combination of acting, writing and crosscutting, that it puts Affleck in the big leagues as a director. "
Taken 3 (2015)
" Mégaton and editors Audrey Simonaud and Nicolas Trembasiewicz take every fist-fight, shoot-out and highway chase and shred them into milliseconds of mismatched visual information like something out of a latter-day Godard movie. "
Inherent Vice (2015)
" Anderson seems to have lost all real pleasure in filmmaking; he seems to feel it's a kind of duty now, the weight of his various influences weighing him down and crushing the bright, grasping, sensitive artist who made Boogie Nights and Magnolia. "
The Fault In Our Stars (2014)
A Walk Among the Tombstones (2014)
Game of Thrones: Season 4 - First of His Name (TV Episode)
Game of Thrones: Season 4 - Oathkeeper (TV Episode)
Dear White People (2014)
Game of Thrones: Season 4 - The Lion and the Rose (TV Episode)
" I first watched a critic's screening copy of the episode a few weeks ago, and struggled not to share my joy with everyone around me. A few days ago, I needed a pick-me-up, so I watched King Joffrey die again. Still great the second time. "
Galavant: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
