Recapping last week:

Nice little week for the Rotten Watch. To start with, my biggest gamble, Here Comes the Boom (Predicted: 43% Actual: 44%) paid off. Kevin James has had a miserable run of movies so predicting this one close to the middle could have looked bad. Instead, I nearly hit it on the nose. Boom! is right.

Next, Argo (Predicted: 94% Actual: 94%) was a direct hit. There was a healthy head start on this one, so I canít go totally crazy. What is funny though, as I mentioned last week, is every Affleck-directed film has scored exactly 94%. Completely amazing.

Meanwhile, Seven Psychopaths (Predicted: 92% Actual: 84%) was another win that already had a bunch of reviews in before post. Cinema Blendís Eric Eisenberg gave the movie five stars, but also wrote a very different, sort of meta, completely excellent review that is more than worth the read.

Finally, Sinister (Predicted: 85% Actual: 63%) dipped significantly over the week and represents my only miss of the week. Up until October 8th, and through thirty-seven reviews, Sinister held an 81% rating. Over the next seventy or so reviews it carried a 53% rating. Thatís a stark dip as more critics got their eyes on it and meant I finished way over the mark.

Next time around we hang ten, get our head in the clouds, go to a Halloween party and trek back up Silent Hill. Itís going to be a Rotten Week!
