Wall Street Journal
"One of Mr. Kapadia's most inspired strokes in this valuable documentary is to put her lyrics on screen as she sings them, so we can see for ourselves the essential elements of her songs as they reflected, and intertwined with, her tumultuous life. "
Magic Mike XXL (2015)
"However discursive-and repetitive-the movie may be, it delivers the fantasy goods of formidable male bodies in motion, and ups the fantasy ante by making the men as sensitive, self-doubting and nurturing as they are virile. "
The Walking Dead: Season 4 - Indifference (TV Episode)
Terminator Genisys (2015)
The Walking Dead: Season 4 - Isolation (TV Episode)
Ted 2 (2015)
The Tribe (2015)
Orphan Black: Season 3 - History Yet to Be Written (TV Episode)
"Orphan Black wrapped up Season 3 with a thoroughly satisfying finale, tying up loose ends, giving us moments of joyful emotional release, of course adding some new mysteries, and ultimately bringing us full circle back to where it all started. "
True Detective : Season 2 (TV, 2015)
The Walking Dead: Season 4 - Infected (TV Episode)
"It's another example of the show's ability this year to contrast the big, set-piece zombie attacks with small, intimate stories that really illustrate the human toll of this horror story, and it shows off the depth of storytelling that's being presented. "
True Detective : Season 1 - Who Goes There (TV Episode)
Infinitely Polar Bear (2015)
"Mark Ruffalo is yet again a revelation in "Infinitely Polar Bear," and he's not the only one. This is a first feature by Maya Forbes, yet many of its accomplishments put far more experienced filmmakers in the shade. "
Inside Out (2015)
True Detective : Season 1 - The Locked Room (TV Episode)
Game of Thrones: Season 5 - Mother's Mercy (TV Episode)
The Walking Dead: Season 1 - Wildfire (TV Episode)
Deutschland 83: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
"It's certainly entertaining and well-done but, based on the first two chapters, the viewers are going to have to swallow quite a large helping of implausible sauerkraut to attain their suspension of disbelief. "
Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Me & Earl & the Dying Girl (2015)
Jurassic World (2015)
"Nothing said here will have the slightest bearing on its performance at the box office. All the same, something should be said about the film's cheesiness -- it doesn't even look good, though it sounds grand -- and the shoddiness of its workmanship. "
Love & Mercy (2015)
Testament Of Youth (2015)
True Detective : Season 1 - Seeing Things (TV Episode)
Game of Thrones: Season 5 - The Dance of Dragons (TV Episode)
Power: Season 2 (TV, 2015)
"As with filmed masterpieces like The Godfather and The Sopranos, almost nobody in Power is without some guilt, and in a more-perfect world the worst of them would not be presented as entertainment, let alone as people to root for. "
Odd Mom Out: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
True Detective : Season 1 - The Long Bright Dark (TV Episode)
"Tropes are tropes for a reason and because good acting, smart writing and lush cinematography are the most significant variables. Based on this first episode, True Detective appears to have nailed them all. "
True Detective : Season 1 - Haunted Houses (TV Episode)
"While anything might happen, I don't think writer Nic Pizzolatto and director Cary Joji Fukunaga are playing tricks on us. I think they're just telling an old-fashioned murder story really, really well. "
Game of Thrones: Season 5 - Hardhome (TV Episode)
The Walking Dead: Season 1 - Vatos (TV Episode)
"Glenn continues to be one of our favorite characters, and the reveal of the Vatos gang - one of the tv series first big departures from the comic book series - was done in an alternately frightening and humorous way. "
Gemma Bovery (2015)
San Andreas (2015)
"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. "
Aquarius: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
The Walking Dead: Season 1 - Tell It to the Frogs (TV Episode)
Sunshine Superman (2015)
Mad Men: Season 7 - Person to Person (TV Episode)

Good Kill (2015)
"Compelling as the subject may be, its abstract nature would challenge the most skillful of dramatists, and Mr. Niccol's script seldom rises above slogans, argumentation and standard-brand domestic tension. "
I'll See You in My Dreams (2015)
Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)
Wayward Pines: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
"Fox's seductive new miniseries Wayward Pines -- in which a man wakes up in an unfamiliar town where nothing is what it seems -- is not like any other show in the what-is-really-going-on-here category. "
