Stage Fright (2014)

"Horror movies can get away with inconsequential plot details. Musicals aren't as lucky. The two can play nice, but in Stage Fright they're like two halves of a schizophrenic psychopath's inner monologue. "

They Came Together (2014)

"A film that's as funny as it is silly, twisting every cliché in the rom-com cannon to impressive effect, so much so that you'll never be able to look at a Katherine Heigl movie in the same way again."

42 (2013)

"42 is a solid crowd-pleaser about courage, endurance, justice and tolerance, but also about love: Robinson's love for his wife, the bromance between Robinson and Rickey, and their love for the game of baseball."

24: Live Another Day (TV, 2014)

" Having long since proven that they can indeed fill 24 episodes with action, cutting it in half gives the creators the chance to cut the fat and deliver a lean, mean ride. "

Nymphomaniac: Volume I (2014)

"Nymphomaniac is brave, thought-provoking filmmaking from a genuine auteur."

DCU: Son of Batman (2014)

"Son of Batman, the 20th DC Universe Animated Original Movie, makes considerable alterations to the original Grant Morrison comic book tale, but still delivers plenty of entertainment value for Bat-fans."

Walk Of Shame (2014)

"It's the rare goofy comedy in dire need of thoughtfulness, the kind of reality that's implicit in male-driven movies because life's so male-dominated in the first place."

Battlefield Earth (2000)

"Overall, I liked the movie. I thought it was a good, mindless sci-fi flick with a lot of effects and action."

Medium: Season 6 (TV, 2009-2010)

" CBS and the series waste no time in getting things back to the status quo. This will please fans who are undoubtedly happy to have Medium back. "

Bad Teacher: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" Hilary Winston's TV adaptation of Bad Teacher has the potential to exceed the movie version with the help of its vivacious lead, Ari Graynor, and a great ensemble cast. "

Black Box: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" Black Box is awful. It aims for high art, but it's pure juvenilia. "

Brick Mansions (2014)

"If Walker was still with us, we'd write Brick Mansions as lame action filler; With tragedy lingering, the movie just seems unfair."

Orphan Black: Season 2 (TV, 2014)

" I'm very much onboard for Season 2 and hope to spread the word to those who haven't watched this show yet on what they're missing out on. "

Fading Gigolo (2014)

"The film nevertheless offers some enjoyable scenes and plenty of humorous dialogue between Turturro's florist-turned-Casanova and co-star Woody Allen's bumbling hustler."

Locke (2014)

"Its star delivers a note-perfect performance that saves the film from its own shortcomings, with Tom Hardy once again proving himself to be one of the finest actors of his generation."

A Haunted House 2 (2014)

"A Haunted House 2 occasionally tries to be a legitimate horror movie, but just like the comedy, it doesn't really work. Basically, this means you'll be hit with extremely generic jump scares every now and then."

Transcendence (2014)

"Ultimately, the film is a missed opportunity; long on ideas and short on execution."

The Quiet Ones (2014)

"A mish-mash of familiar horror ideas that - unlike the story's malevolent spirit - never really gets inside its characters or audience and pales beside recent supernatural rivals. "

Mad Men: Season 7 (TV, 2014-2015)

" On a show all about advertising and projecting a certain image, it's very entertaining when the show can actually play with the idea of how the media can sell us something. "

Fargo: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" The tone of the piece and nature of the characters echo the original, but there is a slightly different, in some ways warmer, feel here. "

Oculus (2014)

"Oculus is a pleasingly creepy low-budget horror flick that plays with some interesting ideas, offers a fresh and unique structure, and understands that some questions are best left unanswered."

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

"Ultimately, due to strong performances by Garfield, Stone, and DeHann, and some great action and sincere moments, Spider-Man is strong enough to survive. Just."

Rio 2 (2014)

Poseidon Rex (2014)

Game of Thrones: Season 4 (TV, 2014)

Friends With Better Lives: Season 1 (TV, 2014)

" A generic three-camera sitcom that attempts to capture the lightning in a bottle that was Friends. However, its whitewashed cast, conventional jokes and unoriginal premise keep it from being anything other than another failed copycat. "

Max Nicholson

Sabotage (2014)

"Sabotage is far more effective than its action-centric trailers have suggested, with the film more a mystery-thriller that actually offers Arnold Schwarzenegger and the cool ensemble a chance to act and not just shoot guns."

"That the documentary condenses such a complicated game and scenario into a clear, engaging package is a tremendous accomplishment by Valve."

Blood Ties (2014)

"Visually a throwback to the era of Sidney Lumet's NYC crime dramas of the 1970s, the slow-moving Blood Ties features fine performances from Clive Owen and Billy Crudup, but wastes Marion Cotillard, Zoe Saldana, and Mila Kunis."

Da Vinci's Demons: Season 2 (TV, 2014)

" What it lacked in thematic substance it more than made up for in content and did a great job of building on the energy of the conclusion to Season 1 while also setting up the journey for Season 2. "

Patrick: Evil Awakens (2014)

Frank (2014)

"If you're willing to go with that - an affectionate character study of a bloke in a massive papier mache head - you'll find Frank to be a richly rewarding film, and the title character to be one you can't help but fall in love with."
