The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

"Its screenplay may clunk, and its logic may be questionable even by the standards of comic book movies, but The Amazing Spider-Man 2 remains a rather fun bit of cinematic overkill."

Bears (2014)

"Bears, the latest of Disney's Earth Day releases, might not win any awards, but it has the bare necessities of any terrific nature-doc: stunning images, arresting voice-over and a powerful story of survival."

Transcendence (2014)

"Transcendence can only muster a sloppy, dull, inept watch that refuses to present a single exciting idea about man's inevitable technological self-destruction - despite Wally Pfister's eye for visual beauty."

All Cheerleaders Die ()

"All Cheerleaders Die mixes a dash of Mean Girls, a pinch of Bring It On, and a heaping helping of witchy horror to conjure one fun-filled dark comedy."

Ride Along (2014)

"From Kevin Hart and Ice Cube's great chemistry to surprisingly engrossing action and a witty script, there's a lot to like about Ride Along. "

Philomena (2013)

"Though sticklers for realism will balk at some of the more Hollywood-ized aspects of Philomena, those willing to go along with it will discover a profoundly affecting drama that boasts a preeminent performance from Judi Dench."

Fading Gigolo (2014)

"What could have been a shallow, salacious romp ends up being a much more heartfelt endeavor about old friends, new love, and the need for human compassion."

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

" Even though its opener is moody and a bit muddled, Mad Men still brims with sex, symbolism and surprises, as well as television's finest ensemble. "

Black Coffee (2014)

"Black Coffee's courtship-over-eroticism ideals are appealing, but the film is too nice to bother us with things like conflict or drama."

Draft Day (2014)

"Lacking feeling and momentum, Draft Day seems like it would be more successful as an ad for this year's NFL draft, rather than a piece of worthwhile entertainment."

Camp Dread (2014)

"Being a low-budget rendition of 80s campfire slashers isn't necessarily a bad thing as long as you have enough of your own creative ideas, like Camp Dread does."

Turn: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" AMC's newest drama, Turn, brims with intrigue but is subpar with its execution for the first hour. "

Game of Thrones: Season 4 (TV, 2014)

" From a telescoped perspective, "Two Swords" is an assured hour, touching base but keeping things moving with many of the major ideas and remaining players of Game of Thrones. "

Silicon Valley: Season 1

" If Judge can deliver on the promise of the show, then Silicon Valley could very easily end up being another comedy hit for HBO "

Nurse 3-D (2014)

"Unabashedly outrageous and all the better for it, Nurse 3D holds your attention with enough gore, generous nudity and batty characterization to please genre fans."

Rio 2 (2014)

"Rio 2 is a bird of a different feather, beefing up a story full of heart and soul for this better than average sequel."

Dark House (2014)

"Dark House could really benefit from an Extreme Home Makeover, because as it stands, this is one architectural mess of a horror film."

Arrow: Season 2 (TV, 2013-2014)

" This week's episode comes after a brief hiatus due to the Olympics, but it was definitely worth the wait. Packed full of great action, character moments and teases for what's to come, "Time of Death" was another winner for The CW's hit show. "

Hannibal: Season 2 (TV, 2014)

" Welcome back, Fannibals! It's been a long wait, but Bryan Fuller's incredible, dark and beautifully haunting take on Dr. Lecter has finally returned, and if the premiere episode is any indication, we're in for one hell of a season of Hannibal. "

Island Of Lemurs: Madagascar (2014)

"While Island of Lemurs: Madagascar occasionally rises to the beauty of its subject, it's hard to ignore the fact that it is an oversimplified look at a complex problem."

The Machine (2014)

Knights of Badassdom (2014)

Outpost 3: Rise Of The Spetsnaz (2014)

"Despite the addition of Russian special forces soldiers, the Outpost franchise is beginning to lose steam by falling into a dull state of Nazi zombie filled redundancy."

In the Blood (2014)

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

Sabotage (2014)

"Sabotage doesn't know whether it wants to be a cheesy 80s action throwback or a gritty, raw assault on reality - a bi-polar watch that creates tonal confusion instead of exciting entertainment."

Wolf Creek 2 (2014)

"Wolf Creek 2 is the ferocious kick in the ass that the slasher genre needs right now - bloody, brutal, and lead by a slasher icon in Mick Taylor that rivals the most memorable horror villains produced in the last decade."

13 Sins (2014)

"13 Sins may not be the most dangerous game, but Daniel Stamm's Jigsaw-inspired contest presents plenty of moral conundrums worth experiencing - because you're not the one answering them."

Better Living Through Chemistry (2014)

Odd Thomas (2014)

The Raid 2 (2014)

Frozen (2013)

"With catchy tunes and a heartwarming story, Frozen is another instant classic for the Mouse House - although given the film's popularity, the slim number of bonus features on the Blu-Ray is a letdown."
