      Fire of Love (2022) The doc is a capsule history lesson on an eons-old natural phenomenon. But it’s also the greatest lava-fueled love story ever told. - Rolling Stone

      (undefined) This is an absolute: Top of the Lake is great. - HitFix

      Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy vs. the Reverend (2020) The special is actually a bit more emotionally grounded than the series had been in a while... But most of this special is just comedy -- fast, furious, very strange comedy from some of the best practitioners in the business. - Rolling Stone

      Friends: The Reunion (2021) Every part of the show that's not just the six of them talking struggles to justify its existence. - Rolling Stone

      The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion (2020) What separates the special from so many others of its type comes towards the end, in a one-on-one conversation between Smith and Janet Hubert... It justifies the special's existence all on its own. - Rolling Stone

      You Don't Know Jack (2010) Pacino spends most of the two-plus hours of "Jack" being a distraction in his own movie. - Newark Star-Ledger

      Be Water (2020) Because Lee is so fascinating, Be Water is never less than watchable. It provides a solid overview of Lee's life and legacy, particularly for the uninitiated who may have only seen Lee's face on T-shirts. - Rolling Stone

      No Crossover: The Trial of Allen Iverson (2010) It's a wonderful film, one of the best of this terrific film series, and I highly recommend it. - Newark Star-Ledger

      John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch (2019) It is, like Galaxy Quest, The Princess Bride, or Jane the Virgin, one of those gems that manages to simultaneously parody a genre and be an excellent recreation of it. - Rolling Stone

      El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie (2019) When you have Vince Gilligan operating near the peak of his powers, and taking the time to fix one of the few things the show didn't get quite right, it makes for one hell of an entertaining gift. - Rolling Stone

      Deadwood: The Movie (2019) It's not much of a conclusion to the story of Deadwood, but it brings the experience of it, as well as the arcs of its two main characters to resting places that feel as perfect as they can. - Rolling Stone

      Live in Front of a Studio Audience: Norman Lear's 'All in the Family' and 'The Jeffersons' (2019) There was enough of interest last night to be worth trying again, whether with more Lear shows or another classic. Hopefully, though, the next attempt will try to be its own thing rather than just a lovingly slavish recreation. - Rolling Stone

      Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe (2011) Campbell's got the charisma and self-deprecating sense of humor to carry a whole film. We know that. But the Sam presented here isn't nearly as much fun as Campbell gets to be on the show. - HitFix

      My Dinner With Hervé (2018) It is, in most ways, a fairly standard HBO biopic... But goodness gracious is Dinklage something to see. - Rolling Stone

      Too Big to Fail (2011) Takes a topic that could have felt like homework and turns it into effective entertainment - even if that entertainment might teach you something along the way. - Uproxx

      Clear History (2013) The revenge plot brings the characters together...and doesn't come together as satisfyingly as your average "Curb" episode... [but] the funny parts of "Clear History" are good enough to act as an acceptable 100-minute substitute. - Uproxx

      O.J.: Made in America (2016) Though Simpson himself only speaks through archival news footage and occasional audio recordings, Edelman paints a rich, three-dimensional, tragic portrait of the man. - HitFix

      7 Days in Hell (2015) Quick, easy, filthy, stupid, funny. You don't need to know anything more. - HitFix

      The Leisure Class (2015) It's insubstantial, clumsy, and ineffective as either comedy or drama. - HitFix

      Skyfall (2012) Skyfall easily moves into the top 5 of Bond movies ever, maybe even the top 3 with From Russia With Love and Casino Royale. - HitFix

      Toy Story That Time Forgot (2014) It's still fun, still sweet, and still a pleasure to hear Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Wallace Shawn and the gang voice these characters, but I checked my watch several times and would have probably preferred it at something closer to Toy Story Toons length. - HitFix

      Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever (2014) [It] has some funny lines from Plaza while occasionally inserting Grumpy Cat into ridiculous situations, but is mostly trying to do what it can within the limitations of its budget, its network and its leading feline. - HitFix

      The Normal Heart (2014) The good in Normal Heart outweighs the bad, which isn't always the case with Murphy's work. It's an important story packed with vivid individual moments, but with this material and these actors, it feels like it could be so much more than what it is. - HitFix

      Veronica Mars (2014) The film doesn't just feel like a double-length episode of the series. The scope feels bigger, the look is richer, and the focus on who Veronica is and why she's so good at this job goes much deeper than the show usually did. - HitFix

      Ghost Shark (2013) There is a peak to the insanity and it arrives too soon (and probably doesn't rise high enough). - HitFix

      Scott Turow's Innocent (2011) Simultaneously too familiar (by rehashing the plot of the first film) and not familiar enough (by depending on the audience to remember and care about material from two decades ago). - HitFix

      Mockingbird Lane (2012) I'd put the Mockingbird Lane pilot more in line with the others I found interesting but didn't want to watch every week. - HitFix

      Clear History (2013) The movie also feels at time like an extended all-star jam episode of Curb. Those are, perhaps not coincidentally, the best, and funniest parts of Clear History. - HitFix

      Sharknado (2013) The title and premise of this one was so ludicrous that it became a draw for me and other looky-lous, and it gave us exactly what we wanted: something unapologetically dumb and cheap and outrageous to laugh at (and, occasionally, with). - HitFix

      Behind the Candelabra (2013) It's rare that I hate an HBO movie, but it's been a long time since I loved one. Until now. - HitFix

      24: Redemption (2008) Redemption didn't so much whet my appetite for the show's full-time return in January as it did remind me of the many problems I had with it the last time it was on the air. - Newark Star-Ledger

      Crossfire Hurricane (2012) If Crossfire Hurricane doesn't offer much that's new, or tell a spellbinding story along the way, it still vividly captures how they became legends in the first place. - HitFix

      George Harrison: Living in the Material World (2011) Scorsese makes it into something more than a three-plus hour rehash of an oft-told tale. - HitFix

      Game Change (2012) Game Change is a big disappointment, a broadside at a very big target, and a waste of some impressive talent in front of and behind the camera. - HitFix
