Narcos: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Z For Zachariah (2015)
The Carmichael Show: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Public Morals: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
We Are Your Friends (2015)
"Besides Bentley's performance, the only thing "We Are Your Friends" has going for it is the occasional directorial flourish. These jolts are few and far between, but they're most welcome when they arise. "
Fear the Walking Dead: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Blunt Talk: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
"Stewart and Scarborough make Blunt Talk worth watching, as they're an offbeat co-dependent pair who clearly have great affection and respect for each other, and watching Stewart embrace Walter's often loony behavior is a treat. "
No Escape (2015)
"Between the script and the superior editing by Elliot Greenberg, there's an enormous amount of tension and thrills to be found here; unfortunately, they're all in the service of a movie that's reprehensible to the core. "
Digging For Fire (2015)
"With all the pretty, vapid Los Angeles navel-gazers lounging by swimming pools and engaging in pointless (and seemingly endless) conversations, the results feel like a sub-par Henry Jaglom movie, conceived on the quick after a location became available. "
Documentary Now!: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
She's Funny That Way (2015)
"Despite the farcical set-ups (involving adjoining hotel rooms, private detectives, and a brusque, busybody therapist played with aching exaggeration by Jennifer Aniston), there's very little here that brings the funny. "
"Smart and sweet, mature and bawdy, knowing its characters' flaws yet open to the possibilities of people acting upon their best instincts. It is without a doubt one of the year's best films, even as it lands in theaters amidst the late-summer doldrums. "
Hitman: Agent 47 (2015)
American Ultra (2015)
"The director and screenwriter lose their way, allowing the film's sensibility to degenerate from outrageous to cartoony, and piling up plot contrivances and corpses in stacks so high that they obscure whatever charms the film once might have held. "
Show Me a Hero: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Mistress America (2015)
"What makes Mistress America so lovely is its balance of compassion and scrutiny: Baumbach and Gerwig don't let these characters get away with their shortcomings, but neither does the film condemn these people or present them as irredeemable. "
Fort Tilden (2015)
"The near-miracle that 2014 SXSW prize-winner "Fort Tilden" pulls off is eventually making [its central] familiar and easily hateable pair into nuanced, melancholic and disastrously overcompensating individuals worth getting to know. "
Club de Cuervos: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Kevin From Work: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015)
Mr. Robinson: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet (2015)
Shaun the Sheep Movie (2015)
"Refreshingly for children (but especially for adults), there are no lessons to learn and no faults to admonish. Instead, it's an 84-minute, dialogue-free distillation of all the innocent fun we wish childhood could be. "
Fantastic Four (2015)
"Director Josh Trank has assembled a quartet of engaging, charismatic performers and stranded them in a miasma of exposition and set-up. So much time is spent putting the pieces on the board that there's barely any time to play with them. "
Ricki And The Flash (2015)
Straight Outta Compton (2015)
Best Of Enemies (2015)
The End Of The Tour (2015)
"All too true to the experience of taking a long family trip: there are a few special moments you'll remember and talk about later, but for the most part, it's a featureless, repetitive voyage that can't be over soon enough. "
"Doesn't do anything particularly wrong inasmuch as it overdoes something right - by the time we reach the final chase/shoot-out/hand-to-hand combat set piece, a bit of ice-cream-headache fatigue has begun to set in. "
Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015)
The Gift (2015)
"Nothing here feels cheap or hasty, which is why the horror, when it comes, is all the more chilling and grim. Slick, sharp and terrifying, "The Gift" is a truly brilliant thriller - and, one hopes, the first of many features from Edgerton to come. "
"The point of "Pixels" - other than some genuinely thrilling SFX of matter evaporating into digitized blocks of confetti - is the dumb message that guys who peaked in middle school totally deserve hot girlfriends because of their awesome gaming skills "
The Jim Gaffigan Show: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
"Gaffigan exudes a relaxed, unpretentious air, no doubt helped by the dozens of TV shows and films on which he's appeared. But the dopey-guy persona he's crafted in his stand-up doesn't completely translate to a sitcom. "
Impastor: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Lila & Eve (2015)
"In a just world, this deeply compassionate and politically relevant revenge fantasy would do for Viola Davis what last year's Alzheimer's odyssey did for Julianne Moore: deliver a long overdue Oscar to one of the finest actresses of her generation. "
"Ultimately comes down in favor of mainstream girl-gets-boy in a way that Inside Amy Schumer might find a little dubious, but it never feels like Schumer is aggressively watering down her uniquely prickly brand of comedy for a mass audience. "
Mr. Holmes (2015)
"After his recent string of what feels like too many comic-book blockbusters, social-media memes and chat-show appearances, it's nice to see McKellen in a role that actually demands - and rewards - his acting abilities. "
Jenny's Wedding (2015)
"A necessary portrait of a multiracial L.A. as a concrete-surfaced hard-knocks-a-thon... as well as a hilarious and high-spirited comedy with a dramatic, third-act curve ball that reminds us that there are aching hearts under the quips and weaves. "
The Spoils Before Dying: Season 1 (TV, 2014)
Paper Towns (2015)
"Even if the smarmily sanctified and beautifully doomed male lead of The Fault in Our Stars made you want to run screaming from the theater, you may find yourself on board with this movie's road trip. "
