Wall Street Journal
"In a lesser episode, the scene of them dancing in their underwear on their bed in a pile of cash and glitter to Riff Raff's "Dolce & Gabbana" might have seemed over-the-top silly. OK, OK, it was over-the-top silly - but hilarious all the same. "

Sunshine Superman (2015)
Mad Men: Season 7 - Person to Person (TV Episode)

Good Kill (2015)

The D Train (2015)
Hot Pursuit (2015)
"While she can make static cinema as well as anybody in the boys club -- Hot Pursuit is solid evidence of that -- Ms. Fletcher also monkeys with the conventions enough to make one wonder what kind of mischief she could ultimately commit. "
The Walking Dead: Season 1 - Guts (TV Episode)
Grace and Frankie: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
"The show has its mind on matters other than husbands coming out-matters like women suddenly alone, women no longer young, marriage itself-large subjects it pursues with a keen instinct for the hilarious and no stops for right-minded messages. "
The Walking Dead: Season 1 - Days Gone By (TV Episode)
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
"The film is a work of craft, from the actors like Mr. Downey, who can deliver a comic line with the timing of a mouse trap, to the editors, Jeffrey Ford and Lisa Lassek, upon whom so much of the movie's very elegant fluidity rests ... "
Game of Thrones: Season 5 - High Sparrow (TV Episode)
"Game of Thrones was in a groove this week. Instead of jumping all over the globe, there were several instances when narrative threads flowed right into each other, particularly when it focused on Brienne, Pod, Sansa and Littlefinger. "
Happyish: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
The Casual Vacancy: Season 1 (TV, 2015)

The Driver: Season 1 (TV, 2014)
Dior and I (2015)
True Story (2015)

The Longest Ride (2015)
Clouds of Sils Maria (2015)
Better Call Saul: Season 1 - Marco (TV Episode)
"Whether you come away seeing Scientology as a cult that ensnares vulnerable people or as a faith of self-empowerment, the film leaves a terrible taste of too much information. This must be its point, but take heed just the same. "
Wolf Hall: Series 1 (TV, 2015)
"It takes some while before the immensity of the history it covers dawns on a viewer of this extraordinary series, so deftly is that history-the reign of Henry VIII, Henry's court, the dawn of the Protestant Reformation in England-woven into drama here. "
The Comedians: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
"[Its] origins are likely to slip one's mind fast, so deeply American is it in its roots, which show up in force in the polished, energetic, captivating pilot directed by Larry Charles, a toiler in Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm." "
Furious 7 (2015)
"The film follows an exceedingly well-traveled road, though the formula-a crew of racer-adventurers who put dual premiums on speed and family values-has been spiked with ever more spectacular, or preposterous, effects. "
