This Rotten Week: Predicting 300: Rise of an Empire and Mr. Peabody and Sherman Reviews
Which movie will get a higher Tomato score?Overall, not too bad. First off, Son of God (Predicted: 22% Actual: 26%) grabbed me a little heat in the comments section over a little tongue-in-cheek ribbing of religion. Whatever the opinion there was, no denying the prediction was right on the money. This flick was just a repackaging and shrinking of the longer History Channel miniseries. To me, thatís a bit of a cop out and it reflected in the critical consensus. If you want a summation of the flick, just read the first paragraph of Seanís review. Thatíll about do it. Meanwhile Non-Stop (Predicted: 45% Actual: 58%) had me just on the wrong side of the middle. I almost put the prediction at a solid 50% but dipped it a bit lower at the last second. Burn. All in all though Iím just so pleased with this stage of Liam Neesonís career. Just keep playing that guy in the impossible situation with a certain cache of "skills". Thatís the wheelhouse. Next time around we have a need for speed and get into the single momís club. Itís going to be a Rotten Week!
