THE BOTTOM LINE: ‘First Cow’ is an original, and often exquisite, cinematic experience

The Bottom Line: ‘The Silencing’ is surprisingly entertaining, and worth a watch

THE BOTTOM LINE: ‘Guns Akimbo’ is 98 minutes of stupid, offensive fun

'Guns Akimbo' isn’t a particularly great film, but it manages to entertain in its own twisted way. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but if you’re not easily offended, you...

THE BOTTOM LINE: ‘Midway’ delivers a riveting, historical drama

“Midway” is a surprisingly solid historical drama that faithfully mixes fact with old Hollywood melodrama. There’s a bit too much reliance on CGI, and the dialogue is a bit stiff,...
