100% The Leftovers: Season 2 Episode 10 "The Leftovers was the rare treat that got better in its second season. Justin Theroux and Christopher Eccleston both took my breath away with some of the most touching, most powerful performances I've seen on TV all year. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Dec 7, 2015
100% The Leftovers: Season 2 Episode 8 ""International Assassin" has ripped open a hole in The Leftovers. A pathway, might be a better word. It put its cards on the table and made a dozen decisions about the type of story that is being told. Kevin will be forever changed. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly

100% The Leftovers: Season 2 Episode 6 ""Terrible things happen in this world, and the only comfort we get is that we didn't cause them," Nora maintains, though she's trying to convince herself more than Erika. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly

100% The Leftovers: Season 2 Episode 5 ""No Room at the Inn" is Matt's season 2 showcase, and it digs even deeper into the minister's strengths and flaws, his better angels and demons. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Nov 2, 2015
100% The Leftovers: Season 2 Episode 3 "The gravitational pull of the GR and their logic has a hold that is hard to shake. Just ask Tom. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 19, 2015
100% The Leftovers: Season 2 Episode 2 ""A Matter of Geography" turned back the clock two-plus months, right back to the moment when Nora discovered Holy Wayne's baby on the Garveys' porch, and Kevin and Jill and their new pooch came back to a place that almost felt like a home. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 12, 2015
91% The Leftovers: Season 1 Episode 10 "In the end, the finale delivered what was promised... It's not a bad place to start season 2. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 6, 2015
100% The Leftovers: Season 1 Episode 9 ""Cairo" and "The Garveys at Their Best" have connected a lot of dots. The slow build of the series to this point has picked up speed, nicely setting up what looks to be an engrossing season finale. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 6, 2015

Posted Oct 6, 2015
100% The Leftovers: Season 1 Episode 6 "Back home, Nora isn't stalking the mistress at the playground anymore... She saves her brother's voicemail apology. And when the doorbell rings, it's Chief Garvey, who's tracked her down to invite her to dinner. There is hope. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 6, 2015
92% The Leftovers: Season 1 Episode 5 "Her murder presented the Garveys-Chief and Laurie-with independent spiritual tests. Each was tempted to abandon the path they've chosen, to relent and take an easier way out. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 6, 2015
82% The Leftovers: Season 1 Episode 4 "Overall, I liked this episode as much as some people are going to be offended by it. It raised the stakes, established the conflict that is now inevitable, and set the course for the rest of the show. Merry Christmas. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 6, 2015
92% The Leftovers: Season 1 Episode 3 "An episode specifically focused on Matt's personal drama and scarred history evokes episodes from Lost that delved into a character's past, revealed surprising links to other characters, and explained the personal baggage that made them who they are. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 6, 2015
100% The Leftovers: Season 1 Episode 2 "It's too early to push away The Leftovers, but the second episode did closely echo the premiere in particular ways, with the payoff being a surprising link between characters. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 6, 2015
100% The Leftovers: Season 1 Episode 1 "Theroux's simmering-souled Garvey hooked me. I don't mind living with miserable characters, as long as they're interestingly miserable. There's some glory in the gloom. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 6, 2015
94% The Leftovers: Season 2 Episode 1 "Before sending viewers to the new home base in Texas, "Axis Mundi" turned back the clock, Kubrick style, to the days of early man...the perfect metaphorical bridge between seasons 1 and 2. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 5, 2015
100% Mad Men: Season 7 Episode 7 "On its surface, "Waterloo" is a feel-good episode -- Bert's passing notwithstanding... But it's called "Waterloo," and Bert's warning could reverberate during the second half of the season, which won't arrive until 2015. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 5, 2015
96% Mad Men: Season 7 Episode 6 "Despite Joan's heroic paean to true love, "The Strategy" was a rough episode for women, a rude "Not-so-fast, ladies" for the characters who are presumed to inherit the Mad Men universe. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 4, 2015
87% Mad Men: Season 7 Episode 5 "I'm increasingly hoping that silhouette I've been watching fall from a New York skyscraper in the show's opening credits for seven seasons turns out to be Lou Avery after Don tosses him through a window. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 4, 2015
82% Mad Men: Season 7 Episode 4 ""Do the work, Don." Get busy living, or get busy dying, Freddie seems to be saying. Damn right. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 4, 2015

A- 96% Wrinkles (2014) "Rare is the "cartoon" that penetrates and even haunts; Wrinkles is not easily forgotten. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Dec 3, 2014
C- 72% Penguins Of Madagascar (2014) "Penguins of Madagascar aims primarily for the kiddies, racing from one frenetic action sequence to another like some haywire Walter Lantz cartoon. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Nov 26, 2014
C- 43% The Better Angels (2014) "It feels more like a poem. Or, at times, a symphony. But it's much less effective as an actual movie. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Nov 21, 2014
B 89% The Drop (2014) "There's a lot of repressed rage in The Drop, a Dennis Lehane crime story about a lonely Brooklyn barkeep who's drawn out of his self-imposed isolation ... " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Sep 10, 2014
C- 36% The Giver (2014) "In the end, the film practically collapses under its own...hmm, what's the opposite of 'weight'? " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Aug 14, 2014
C- 60% Hercules (2014) "Hercules might seem like the perfect role for The Rock, but the movie really needs a better Dwayne Johnson. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jul 25, 2014
B 66% Lucy (2014) "By the time the film exhausts itself-in a brisk 89 minutes-it feels like there's literally nowhere that Lucy and Besson can't go, no boundaries, no laws, no logic. Just go with it. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jul 24, 2014
B 88% A Most Wanted Man (2014) "Crackles with a jigsaw-puzzle intelligence and features a superbly subtle lead performance from the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, who single-handedly gooses the post-9/11 procedural through some of its slower patches. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jul 17, 2014
C- 23% Think Like a Man Too (2014) "Hart has to deliver a spectacular highlight every time he touches the ball for this movie to have any chance, and as a result, he takes some ill-advised shots. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jun 20, 2014
D+ 25% Fun Size (2012) "There remains a huge market for a great Halloween teen comedy, but Fun Size is the disappointing apple that your crazy-haired neighbor gives you instead of candy. Feel free to dump this one in the bushes. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 24, 2012
B+ 50% Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole (2010) "Snyder has crafted the rare 3-D eyegasm that's worth the premium ticket price. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Sep 22, 2010
D 23% Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010) "Afterlife is slow-moving but relentless, and judging from a post-credits teaser that promises at yet another sequel, it has an unquenchable appetite for your brain cells. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
