We are moving through the spring season, and while summer isn’t here just yet, we still have some pretty big titles coming out. Get ready for Elvis & Nixon and The Huntsman: Winter’s War.

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.

Elvis and Nixon
Rotten Watch Prediction
Elvis & Nixon might wind up being totally fine, but I almost couldn’t get passed a very simple thing: neither Kevin Spacey nor Michael Shannon look anything like Richard Nixon or Elvis Presley, respectively. Now, is this crucial to the overall arching theme and possible success of the movie? No. But considering those are two of the more popular figures in American history, you’d think there would be a little more effort to make the leads look, you know, like the real dudes.

Elvis and Nixon tells the story of the Blue Suede Shoe’d one showing up at the White House one day, requesting to be an undercover NARC and ultimately getting a famous photo shot with Tricky Dick. It looks cute enough on the surface, has an excellent cast, and the trailer provided a laugh or two. But I suspect the film is quickly forgotten in the Rolodex of movie history, and runs into problems with the leads performing more caricatures than actually diving into the real people. It won’t bomb, but I can see it grating on certain critics.
