Game of Thrones: Season 4 - The Lion and the Rose (TV Episode)
" It's a delicate road we've started down at the end of "The Lion and the Rose," but one that has begun with a beautifully orchestrated moment of chaos. We'll see soon enough where it takes us and if the scales start to even out. "
Dear White People (2014)
A Most Wanted Man (2014)
Game of Thrones: Season 4 - Two Swords (TV Episode)
Mad Men: Season 7 - Waterloo (TV Episode)
" Matthew Weiner -- who directed and co-wrote last night's mid-season finale with Carly Wray -- gave us plenty to chew on in an immensely satisfying and oddly optimistic stopping point with the men in a panic and the women in calm control. "
Mad Men: Season 7 - The Strategy (TV Episode)
" "The Strategy" found its characters perhaps at their happiest. Not one member of the limited cast appeared even remotely flummoxed until Roger and Joan were brought back together over a mutual distaste for Harry Crane. "
Love Is Strange (2014)
Mad Men: Season 7 - The Runaways (TV Episode)
" Well, at least that wasn't boring. After last week's rather ironic by-the-book ode to Kubrick, Mad Men threw the kitchen sink at us in episode five including a blast from the past, a threesome, and some particularly dirty office politics. "
Mad Men: Season 7 - The Monolith (TV Episode)
" Unlike most of what came before on Mad Men, most of this episode wasn't made to be an enjoyable effort to decode -- it was laid out as directly, if not more so, as any episode yet to air. But did it have to feel so lifeless? "
Mad Men: Season 7 - Field Trip (TV Episode)
Mr. Turner (2014)
Mad Men: Season 7 - A Day's Work (TV Episode)
Mad Men: Season 7 - Time Zones (TV Episode)
Boardwalk Empire: Season 5 - Friendless Child (TV Episode)
Boardwalk Empire: Season 5 - Cuanto (TV Episode)
Boardwalk Empire: Season 5 - The Good Listener (TV Episode)
" As things draw to a close, the odds of the great characters developed over the last four years reuniting grow, which can only lead to great things. A less scattered Boardwalk is one that will likely end in triumph. "
Homeland: Season 4 - Long Time Coming (TV Episode)
" The season finale's mimicking of past resolutions can be seen in one of two ways: a ripoff treading over well-soiled ground, or a poetic consideration of character priorities. I, for one, am siding with the latter. "
Homeland: Season 4 - Krieg Nicht Lieb (TV Episode)
" I loved seeing Sterling's nerd rant, putting Carrie in her place yet again for letting down Fara. It was a thing of beauty, but it won't quite surpass Rupert Friend's surprisingly quick and ruthless takedown of two armed soldiers. "
Homeland: Season 4 - 13 Hours in Islamabad (TV Episode)
Homeland: Season 4 - There's Something Else Going On (TV Episode)
" Vivamus. "
Homeland: Season 4 - Halfway to a Donut (TV Episode)
Homeland: Season 4 - Redux (TV Episode)
" Carrie has snapped -- again. She was wearing a straightjacket -- again. She's alienated everyone who cares about her -- again. "Redux" may be an appropriate title, but all-in-all, it's too spot-on to be complimentary. "
Homeland: Season 4 - From A to B and Back Again (TV Episode)
Homeland: Season 4 - About a Boy (TV Episode)
" As much as I wasn't a fan of watching a retread of the Carrie/Brody dynamic, [this] follow-up episode sounded like a direct message to fans: we know what we're doing. Trust us. I will, especially after a week like this one. "
Homeland: Season 4 - Iron in the Fire (TV Episode)
Homeland: Season 4 - The Drone Queen (TV Episode)
Homeland: Season 4 - Shalwar Kameez (TV Episode)
" While I understand why a panicked writers' room would resort to a romantic subplot -- like it or not, the new pace of this show is sluggish compared to what fans were used to -- matching up Carrie and Quinn is a terrible idea. "
A Most Violent Year (2015)
Love & Mercy (2015)
Top Five (2014)
" The director combines elements of film noir and the restraint of Iranian New Wave cinema with the subdued depictions of a bored youth culture found in early Jim Jarmusch... the comparisons go on and on, but the result is wholly original. "

American Sniper (2015)
Butter On The Latch (2014)
The Gambler (2014)
The Game: Season 1 (TV, 2014)
" While The Game is far from a broad analysis of Britain's socio-economic construct, it does analyze what was at the heart of David Simon's first season. Is it all in the game, or is the game the only reason people play? "
The Tribe (2015)
" While the specifics remain uncertain, it's never particularly difficult to keep up with the movie's pace, since their actions speak plainly enough -- and sometimes add far more expressiveness than any verbal exchanges could provide. "
