Summer is still a couple months away, but every year it seems that blockbuster season is starting sooner and sooner. Late March has found itself as a strong spot for big movies in recent years, and that’s why we’re about to see the arrival of one film that should be one of the giant blockbuster releases of 2016. Get ready for Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice and My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2.

Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer. Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Rotten Watch Prediction
Is all the hype going to pay off? That’s really the only question left to answer about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Though the convoluted and needlessly long name would suggest major issues right from jump street, I’m holding out insane hope this flick is everything we’ve wanted and more. The trailers to me suggest a mixed bag, and there’s reason to believe director Zack Snyder (Man of Steel-56%, Watchmen-65%) bit off more than he could chew trying to create what’s been dubbed as the DC Cinematic Universe.

Certain aspects of what we’ve seen look amazing, don’t get me wrong. But the Jessie Eisenberg as Lex Luthor voiceovers, the limited back and forth between Bats and Supes and other odds and ends feel just a little bit off. I suspect what we get here is 65% a good movie and 35% a "what could have been" scenario. Again, I hope I’m wrong because I’ve been jones-ing for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice for a while, and really want it to be good. But enough of the stilted dialogue, possibly cheesy CGI and other uh-ohs have me thinking this could even finish below the halfway mark. Here’s to hoping I’m way off base.
