Justified: Season 4 (TV, 2013)

" Season 4 matched the series' muted epicness from beginning to end. "

Gotham: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" So is Gotham, with all of its tricks, tropes, and Easter Eggs, done well? Sure, for the most part. "

Selfie: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" While the series' sustainability is dubious at best, Selfie is worth a look for the two stars alone. "

A to Z: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" Mimicking a long line of rom-com predecessors, NBC's A to Z adds almost nothing new to the genre, and features cookie-cutter characters that harp on old "love and destiny" tropes. "

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

"Though it doesn't recapture the sense of innovation of the original, and occasionally feels fragmented, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For provides an entertaining, though familiar, ride for those anxious to revisit that world."

The Sopranos: Season 6 (TV, 2006-2007)

" One can understand David Chase's desire to have a completely unique ending... But that doesn't mean we have to like it. "

The Giver (2014)

"As one in a long line of YA adaptations, The Giver may test some viewers' patience, but director Phillip Noyce brings his own unique visual style to the proceedings, adding a bit of flair to the story's well-worn structure and superficial themes."

Life After Beth (2014)

"Life After Beth arrives more like Frankenstein's Monster than the revived corpse of a well-worn genre. "

Batman: Assault on Arkham (2014)

"Their [Suicide Squad] fun interactions and clashing character dynamics keep the energy levels high so you won't even notice that Batman's appearances are being saved only for special occasions. "

Septic Man (2014)

"There's no fun in it at all, and worse, it's just plain gross."

Let's Be Cops (2014)

"Let's Be Cops is good for some chuckles and a couple of big laughs, but won't keep you rolling in the aisles throughout."

Summer Catch (2001)

"The film is as predictable as the outcome of a New York Yankees-Tampa Bay Devil Rays game, but you can bet nobody will be standing up to do the wave. "

The Hundred-Foot Journey (2014)

"Hallström designs The Hundred-Foot Journey to provoke smiles, tears, and stomach growls. It's not filling, but it's tasty."

Deepsea Challenge 3D (2014)

"Deepsea Challenge 3D dives to the depths of modern Earthly exploration, but Cameron steals too much of the spotlight. "

What If (2014)

"What If draws on all the best tropes of the romantic comedy genre and transcends the sum of its parts with a sharp script, pleasing direction and charming stars. "

Into The Storm (2014)

"A moment of weightlessness in the eye of the storm is literally and figuratively transcendent. Into the Storm is aware of how to be effective, if only grand blockbusterisms would get out of its way."

The Inbetweeners Movie 2 ()

"This sequel features at least as many shocks and laughs as its predecessor, all wrapped in a cinematic sheen that sets it apart from what's gone before, and suggesting that there might be life in the Inbetweeners yet."

Partners: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" Partners is a putrid, lazy swamp of a series. Even for those of you who are no longer (or never have been) a fan of the multi-camera traditional sitcom format, this is a new level of terrible. "

The Expendables 3 (2014)

"They are enjoyable moments in a film that entertains for much of its run-time, and it's still a blast watching these '80s icons get together to blow stuff up onscreen."

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

"Despite the strange revamp of the Turtles into huge, superpowered behemoths who seem ready to throw down with Colossus or the Thing, the film does a nice job of capturing their brotherly in-fighting, camaraderie and rapport."

Eric Goldman

Get On Up (2014)

"Reflective of James Brown's invigorating, transcendent music, Tate Taylor's Get on Up blares and bangs its way through the iconic soul singer's life, kept on beat by star Chadwick Boseman's explosive energy."

Zoom (2006)

"Although it is aimed at very young children, Zoom doesn't even work as a kid flick. It is truly one of the worst films of the year."

Hercules (2014)

"An entertaining and boisterous action flick, Hercules offers a fresh take on the legendary character and his heroics."

Happy Christmas (2014)

"The two leads have great chemistry together as respective sisters-in-law, and their shared arc is funny and strong. Happy Christmas is worth checking out, if only for Kendrick and Lynskey."

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

"From the opening credits to the final reel, there's a genuine swagger about the whole film. It exudes charm and confidence throughout, and is flippant in all the best possible ways."

Paranoia (2013)

"A couple of business rivals trying to steal each other's cell phone secrets is just not that gripping to watch unfold, especially when it's anchored by such a dull protagonist."

I Dreamed of Africa (2000)

"I Dreamed of Africa is, quite simply, one of the worst mainstream movies ever made."

A Most Wanted Man (2014)

"A naturalistic thriller that gives itself over to the tremendous, hushed force of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman."

Lucy (2014)

"Bolstered by Scarlett Johansson's confident performance and director Luc Besson's eye for action, Lucy will likely be a bit too much of a mind job for most viewers but it deserves kudos for its sheer loony ambition."

Bless the Child (2000)

You're the Worst: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

Matador: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" While El Rey's Matador won't have the viewers yelling "Gooooal!", the show's unique, frenetic style will still probably catch their attention. "

Masters of Sex: Season 2 (TV, 2014)

The Purge: Anarchy (2014)

"A marked improvement over its predecessor, The Purge: Anarchy is a scarier and more effective thriller that also features a solid central performance from Frank Grillo."

Boardwalk Empire: Season 2 (TV, 2011)

Sex Tape (2014)

Extant: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" Extant appears as though it will center on relationships. The characters aren't treated as the backdrop for the story about possible alien life and artificial intelligence, they're woven into the plot and so are their interactions. "

The Strain: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

Nothing Lasts Forever (1984)

"Nothing Lasts Forever surpasses its status as an oddity in the history of film. While it could've been an indie classic alongside the likes of Ed Wood had it been released a decade later, it stands as a funny, albeit weird, commentary on art."

A Brony Tale (2014)

"While it could have benefited from more insight from the people involved with show and follow-up commentary from Bryan, the movie poses interesting questions about gender roles in modern society."

Earth to Echo (2014)

"Earth to Echo is a simple, sentimental tribute to the glory days of '80s kid movies, but the adventure's derailed by the rigid qualities of found footage packaging."
