Wall Street Journal
Testament Of Youth (2015)
True Detective : Season 1 - Seeing Things (TV Episode)
Game of Thrones: Season 5 - The Dance of Dragons (TV Episode)
Power: Season 2 (TV, 2015)
"As with filmed masterpieces like The Godfather and The Sopranos, almost nobody in Power is without some guilt, and in a more-perfect world the worst of them would not be presented as entertainment, let alone as people to root for. "
Odd Mom Out: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
True Detective : Season 1 - The Long Bright Dark (TV Episode)
"Tropes are tropes for a reason and because good acting, smart writing and lush cinematography are the most significant variables. Based on this first episode, True Detective appears to have nailed them all. "
True Detective : Season 1 - Haunted Houses (TV Episode)
"While anything might happen, I don't think writer Nic Pizzolatto and director Cary Joji Fukunaga are playing tricks on us. I think they're just telling an old-fashioned murder story really, really well. "
Game of Thrones: Season 5 - Hardhome (TV Episode)
The Walking Dead: Season 1 - Vatos (TV Episode)
"Glenn continues to be one of our favorite characters, and the reveal of the Vatos gang - one of the tv series first big departures from the comic book series - was done in an alternately frightening and humorous way. "
Gemma Bovery (2015)
San Andreas (2015)
"In a lesser episode, the scene of them dancing in their underwear on their bed in a pile of cash and glitter to Riff Raff's "Dolce & Gabbana" might have seemed over-the-top silly. OK, OK, it was over-the-top silly - but hilarious all the same. "
Aquarius: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
The Walking Dead: Season 1 - Tell It to the Frogs (TV Episode)
Sunshine Superman (2015)
Mad Men: Season 7 - Person to Person (TV Episode)
"Still, it's okay to enjoy that rom-commy scene from last night's "Person to Person," because we like seeing Peggy happy - and boy, was she ever happy, giddily smiling to herself and touching her hand to her heart. "
Good Kill (2015)
"Compelling as the subject may be, its abstract nature would challenge the most skillful of dramatists, and Mr. Niccol's script seldom rises above slogans, argumentation and standard-brand domestic tension. "
I'll See You in My Dreams (2015)
Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)
Wayward Pines: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
"Fox's seductive new miniseries Wayward Pines -- in which a man wakes up in an unfamiliar town where nothing is what it seems -- is not like any other show in the what-is-really-going-on-here category. "
The D Train (2015)
Hot Pursuit (2015)
"While she can make static cinema as well as anybody in the boys club -- Hot Pursuit is solid evidence of that -- Ms. Fletcher also monkeys with the conventions enough to make one wonder what kind of mischief she could ultimately commit. "
The Walking Dead: Season 1 - Guts (TV Episode)
Grace and Frankie: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
"The show has its mind on matters other than husbands coming out-matters like women suddenly alone, women no longer young, marriage itself-large subjects it pursues with a keen instinct for the hilarious and no stops for right-minded messages. "
The Walking Dead: Season 1 - Days Gone Bye (TV Episode)
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
"The film is a work of craft, from the actors like Mr. Downey, who can deliver a comic line with the timing of a mouse trap, to the editors, Jeffrey Ford and Lisa Lassek, upon whom so much of the movie's very elegant fluidity rests ... "
Game of Thrones: Season 5 - High Sparrow (TV Episode)
"Game of Thrones was in a groove this week. Instead of jumping all over the globe, there were several instances when narrative threads flowed right into each other, particularly when it focused on Brienne, Pod, Sansa and Littlefinger. "
Happyish: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
The Casual Vacancy: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
"Amid the stern political message in the series... there is some black comedy as leavening. Occasionally, the score even brings in comforting glockenspiel-like music reminiscent of a Harry Potter movie. "
Adult Beginners (2015)
Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck (2015)
"Mr. Morgen is perhaps the leading revolutionary in American documentary filmmaking, a collagist/synthesist extraordinaire who has channeled Mr. Cobain's physical legacy ... into a work of art completely his own. "
The Age of Adaline (2015)
The Driver: Season 1 (TV, 2014)
Dior and I (2015)
True Story (2015)
"A movie to be seen, if you can endure it-as a shrewd commercial venture, as an online opus that undoes your self-composure and, last and foremost, as a window on a mode of thinking that equates to a state of being. "
Turn: Season 2 (TV, 2015)
Ex Machina (2015)
The Longest Ride (2015)
Clouds of Sils Maria (2015)
Better Call Saul: Season 1 - Marco (TV Episode)
"Whether you come away seeing Scientology as a cult that ensnares vulnerable people or as a faith of self-empowerment, the film leaves a terrible taste of too much information. This must be its point, but take heed just the same. "
