One Big Happy: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Community: Season 6 (TV, 2015)
It Follows (2015)
"It's an undeniable triumph of mood - perfect for anyone who wants to practice clenching their fists for nearly 100 straight minutes - as well as an ambitious effort at reinventing horror by eschewing the genre's common tricks. "
"If you can get past the giant pumpkin in the ballroom - really, why bother to remake Cinderella in 2015 if you have no new spin on the material? - there's a lot to like about director Kenneth Branagh's gorgeously fanciful tale. "
Seymour: An Introduction (2015)
""Seymour: An Introduction" is a compendium of tutorial anecdotes and poetic aphorisms he's collected over the years. Hawke's approach is apostolic, as if he's recording for posterity the sublime wisdom of a philosophical master. "
"Perks up a bit when vets like Winslet or Octavia Spencer or Naomi Watts pop up for a scene or two, but for the most part, this all plays out like yet another movie about pretty young people in futuristic sportswear punching or shooting each other. "
Home Sweet Hell (2015)
"A rancid comedy fueled by male entitlement and uxoricidal rage... "Home Sweet Hell" is the cinematic equivalent of the guy who's so busy ranting and raving about how untrustworthy women are that he hasn't noticed everyone's backed away from him. "
Run All Night (2015)
The Returned (US): Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Dig: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
The Gunman (2015)
"What begins and ends as an exploration of Western exploitation of the Congo mostly follows the standard track of the retired hit-man who realizes that he hasn't quite yet eluded the sins of the past. "
"Coasting is all there is, in the hopes that these charismatic actors can somehow make tandoori chicken salad out of a screenplay full of lazily-constructed conflicts so contrived they'd get booted out of the Two and a Half Men writer's room. "
"You'll be told repeatedly in whispers and shouts, that Chappie has feelings. It's too bad that neither the philosophy nor the pyrotechnics on-screen in "Chappie" can distract you from your own sinking feeling that you've seen almost all of this before. "
CSI: Cyber: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Unfinished Business (2015)
"The fact that it can't spell out the basics of this business deal - outside of some "robble robble projected income graph percentage closing" jargon - is indicative of a general lack of focus and an inconsistency in tone. "
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. "
