THE BOTTOM LINE: ‘Death of Me’ is more disappointing than shocking

A flawed script dooms a decent premise in 'Death of Me.' Not even Maggie Q can save a one-dimensional horror flick that relies too much on atmosphere and visuals. It...

THE BOTTOM LINE: ‘Mortal’ is an Entertaining Twist on the Superhero Genre

Don’t let the subtitles or modest budget dissuade you – Mortal is a surprisingly good film, and an inventive twist on the superhero genre. It is heavy on the character...

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

Who knew that a movie about stealing milk could be such an emotional viewing experience? First Cow is unusual, to be sure, and the slower pacing and abrupt ending may...

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

“The Silencing” may not have gotten much attention because of the theater shutdown, but is a worthwhile watch. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Annabelle Wallis turn in some solid performances, and while...

THE BOTTOM LINE: Finally, a Worthwhile Movie Adaptation of a Video Game

It’s not a great film, but Sonic the Hedgehog delivers exactly what a video game movie should. It’s fast, fun, doesn’t linger over the details, and stays true to the...

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: Hartnett elevates a by-the-numbers crime drama

Don’t expect “Inherit the Viper” to be a great film, but you can expect a nice performance by Josh Hartnett. He elevates a pretty average crime drama into something watchable....

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,...
