No Score Yet The Pack (2016) "We learn nothing much about the family members except that outsmarting dogs doesn't seem to be their forte. Also not a forte of anyone involved in this project: originality in picking a name. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Feb 5, 2016
78% Southbound (2016) ""Southbound" is something you don't see much anymore: an anthology horror film. Its five segments do what they're supposed to do - unsettle you - but as a bonus, they also leave you wanting more. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Feb 4, 2016
91% Grease: Live "This... was a show that was more about individual moments than about building a story. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Feb 1, 2016
53% Jeruzalem (2016) "The more desperate the characters' flight becomes, the less interesting the movie grows. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 28, 2016
53% Lazer Team (2016) ""Lazer Team" ends by setting itself up for a sequel, but that's mighty wishful thinking. There's not a big demand for laugh-free comedies. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 28, 2016
82% You, Me and the Apocalypse: Series 1 (TV, 2015) "It's an eclectic (and nicely cast) group, to say the least. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 28, 2016
80% Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) "Lots of comedic fight scenes break up the story's more somber stretches, and the animation, especially in 3-D, is simply gorgeous. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 28, 2016
79% Chelsea Does: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Chelsea Does... [is] a four-part series on Netflix by Chelsea Handler (Eddie Schmidt directed) in which she breaks the documentary mold, sometimes for better, sometimes for worse. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 25, 2016
49% Lucifer: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Even Satanists will be reaching for the remote when ... The Devil deserves better than ... Oh, heck, Fox's Lucifer is so terrible that it doesn't even warrant the effort of a clever opening line. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 25, 2016
29% The Boy (2016) "It ... has enough scary moments to satisfy horror fans, but you're left wondering whether it might have been more disturbing had it stayed on its original path. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 23, 2016
75% Prescription Thugs (2016) "Even before a "do as I say, not as I do" twist costs it all credibility, "Prescription Thugs" is a not very good documentary about a very important subject. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 21, 2016
67% Dark Net: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "In general, the program successfully walks a fine line between glorifying technology and treating it as a curiosity. No one knows where all this is headed, but Dark Net is at least peering into the possible futures with more sophistication than most. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 21, 2016
42% Moonwalkers (2016) "The misguided "Moonwalkers" invests too much in the comedy potential of things that haven't been funny for a long while. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 14, 2016
67% Teachers: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Teachers, born as a web series and now expanded by TV Land into a half-hour comedy, is convincing evidence that more can be less. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 13, 2016
30% Second Chance: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Yes, this sounds preposterous. And the crime-of-the-weeks sometimes dabble in clich├ęs... But the actors sell it, and the writers throw in enough winking humor to let us not take it too seriously. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 13, 2016
11% The Forest (2016) "A decently executed creeper built around a convincing performance by Natalie Dormer. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 7, 2016
50% The Shannara Chronicles: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "This show is best if not overthought; if you're going to make time for it, just enjoy the escapism. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 5, 2016
56% Shades of Blue: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Ms. Lopez and Mr. Liotta pair well, and the early episodes certainly have a pulse. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 5, 2016
No Score Yet 9-man "The tournament, though, just provides a framework for the film. Its heart is its exploration of the sport as an expression of cultural identity. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 1, 2016
100% River: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "[The premise] might sound hokey, but this series, created and written by Abi Morgan, is anything but that, growing deeper, darker and more intricate with each episode. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 30, 2015
100% Galavant: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "Galavant,for the uninitiated, is a ridiculously likable musical comedy - yes, a musical comedy. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 30, 2015
86% TransFatty Lives (2015) "There was an opportunity to explore in more depth the phenomenon of abandonment that many with debilitating diseases speak of - the people they thought would be there for the long haul fall away - but Mr. O'Brien doesn't take it. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 27, 2015
85% He Never Died (2015) "Mr. Krawczyk never lapses into over-the-top horror parody, which too many others have done too often. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 17, 2015
19% Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip (2015) "Now would be an excellent time for parents of young children to invest in earplugs. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 17, 2015
69% Childhood's End: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's heady, unsettling stuff, adapted by Matthew Graham and brought to life with affecting performances, especially by Osy Ikhile as a scientist who becomes the final witness to the great transition. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 14, 2015
38% American Hero (2015) ""American Hero" starts off seeming as if it is going to be a fresh take on superheroes, but Nick Love, who wrote and directed, turns out to have nowhere to go with his intriguing premise. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 10, 2015
11% Dixieland (2015) "This is well-worn territory, and though the two leads are very good, the romance that is supposed to drive the story isn't particularly well delineated ... " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 10, 2015
78% A Very Murray Christmas (2015) "The result is a show that probably isn't destined for repeat viewings but provides a few wry moments and even a listenable song or two. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 4, 2015
83% Orion: The Man Who Would Be King (2015) "It's a curious, bittersweet story, flecked with dashes of bombast and overstatement that Presley himself would have admired. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 3, 2015
70% Dementia (2015) "It's an assured, deftly acted movie that builds its creepiness slowly and keeps its secrets well hidden till the end. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 3, 2015
79% 7 Days in Hell "Golf has its Caddyshack. Baseball has its Major League. And now tennis, another sport that some people find boring and that sometimes comes off as a wee bit pretentious, has 7 Days in Hell. Center Court may never be the same. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 3, 2015
88% Bessie (2015) "Bessie shows us an assortment of moments from that life but doesn't really make us feel it, despite Queen Latifah's best efforts. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 3, 2015
80% Saints & Strangers: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Compelling two-part film about the Mayflower settlers and the first Thanksgiving. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Dec 3, 2015
80% Sweet Micky For President (2015) "It's a friendly and shallow look at the ascendance of a pop-star-turned-politician whose presidency, now more than four years along, has hardly been a panacea. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 19, 2015
47% Criminal Activities (2015) "It owes as much to Quentin Tarantino as the four bunglers owe to Eddie. Yet it doesn't feel like a mere imitation; it has too much wit and too many striking performances for that. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 19, 2015
92% Drone "There are no suggested solutions here to the difficult issues raised, but the film at least reminds us that it's important not to accept this new way of warring without scrutinizing it. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 19, 2015
28% The Art of More: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The casting is delicious, the characters and their stories grow more complex with each episode, and Graham and Roxanna find that you can't serve the rich without becoming caught in the quicksand of greed. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 17, 2015
46% Chicago Med: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Chicago Med is so exactly what you expect it to be that there's practically no point describing it, a bad thing if you like your shows innovative and unpredictable, but a good thing if you can't get enough trauma room gore and dramatics. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 16, 2015
78% Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans (2015) "It doesn't really succeed in conveying McQueen's great passion for auto racing. In truth, it mostly makes him seem like a jerk - but cinephiles might enjoy it as a case study of moviemaking gone wrong. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 12, 2015
80% Man Up (2015) ""Man Up" ... has just enough edge to distinguish it from a Lifetime movie. It also has Lake Bell and Simon Pegg, versatile and likable actors who help the mild story considerably. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 12, 2015
20% Love the Coopers (2015) "Classic Christmas movies have a magic that can't be manufactured, but "Love the Coopers" desperately tries to do just that. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 12, 2015
24% Marco Polo: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "Yes, perhaps women were nothing but sex objects in the real Kublai Khan's empire, but this series is historically accurate only when it wants to be; the better examples of the costume genre have found ways to treat female characters less dismissively. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 12, 2015
23% Donny!: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It has a certain crass, infuriating charm. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 10, 2015
82% Blindspot: Season 1 Episode 1 "With a good cast and crisp delivery, Blindspot should at least compel you to stick around for a few more episodes to see where it's going. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 10, 2015
57% Blindspot: Season 1 Episode 2 "This show needs to keep us guessing, and so far it's doing that job pretty well, even if it's straining credulity. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 10, 2015
100% Blindspot: Season 1 Episode 3 "Blindspot seems determined to defy expectations, which bodes well for the future. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 10, 2015
50% Blindspot: Season 1 Episode 4 "Weller doesn't say much in this series; anyone else wish he would stop saying anything at all? " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 10, 2015
86% Blindspot: Season 1 Episode 5 "I know turf wars between law enforcement agencies are a real-life thing, but that near-gunfight made me laugh, which was probably not the intent. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 10, 2015
67% Blindspot: Season 1 Episode 6 "Between those intriguing bookends, we got a reasonably satisfying thriller involving Russian drug runners who were trying to steal a truckload of Homeland Security weaponry. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Nov 10, 2015
33% Blindspot: Season 1 Episode 7 "The characters themselves commented on the unlikelihood of it all, but that didn't make it any more believable for me... Anyway, am I the only one who thought this episode achieved new heights of nonsensicalness? " ‐ New York Times
