Marvel's Jessica Jones: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
House of Cards: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
"The production values are lush, the pacing tight, the dialogue razor-sharp ("I love that woman," Underwood says of his wife at one point. "I love her more than sharks love blood"), the tone dark and delightfully nasty. "
The Night Before (2015)
The 33 (2015)
By The Sea (2015)
"There's little real drama here. Just one shot after another of Jolie lying on a chaise longue, stretching out a pale leg, elegantly arching one foot and thinking hard about the emptiness of existence. "
Love the Coopers (2015)
Flesh and Bone: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
"Portentous and pretentious, Starz's new prestige drama Flesh and Bone, about the cutthroat world of ballet, could have been watchable had it fully embraced the camp into which it occasionally pirouettes. "
The Peanuts Movie (2015)
"This tautly directed, terrifically acted movie springs from a Boston Globe investigation a decade ago that led to hundreds of incidents of abuse - in reality, an entire perverted culture - being hauled out into the sanitizing glare of daylight. "

Rock the Kasbah (2015)
"It needs a smarter script. It needs at least two or three perfectly engineered, joke-after-joke sequences. It needs a smart director - did you really do "Wag the Dog," Levinson? - whose idea of political satire goes beyond freshman-year sarcasm. "
Game of Thrones: Season 5 (TV, 2015)
Heart of a Dog (2015)
Truth Be Told: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
""Truth Be Told" is being marketed as an edgy comedy about race, sex and other hot-button matters. In fact, it is a traditional laugh-track sitcom that lazily circles the taboos and only rarely scores a hit. "
Beasts of No Nation (2015)
"The pace is great, with the last hour being an all-out monster attack, as all of Stine's creatures - a werewolf, zombies, a mummy, murderous garden trolls and a particularly sarcastic ventriloquist's dummy - go on the rampage. "
"Its only agenda seems to be to uncritically support the person on whose memoir, not surprisingly, it's based. It's not a real drama. It's an argument for the defense. It skips who, what, when, where and why and goes straight to whine. "
Bridge of Spies (2015)
Crimson Peak (2015)
"For all the eye-popping effects and hyperkinetic action, there's no joyful innocence here. There's no sense of childlike wonder. Just a lifeless machine, dully ticking away like a clock in a crocodile's belly. "

The Walk (2015)
"Danny isn't all that interesting. And the sadder fact is that the filmmakers seem to know that, but worry an audience won't identify with a more flamboyant character. So they present this safer, paler alternative. "
