This Rotten Week: Predicting The Internship And The Purge Reviews

Recapping last week:

Well, let’s take a look at the damage. After Earth (Predicted: 44% Actual: 12%) was a mess and very likely spells the end of M. Night Shyamalan’s agent needing his/her secretary to answer any more phone calls from studios. A flop by any conceivable metric, this film was crushed by critics, got demolished at the box office, and proved that Will Smith alone does not a movie make. What a mess. I gave it the benefit of the doubt because Smith does have a certain action film persona that helps in overcoming suspect scripts. But he couldn’t do it here. A real shame is what this is.

Meanwhile, Now You See Me (Predicted: 70% Actual: 43%) started off the week strong but faded, and faded and ended up way off the mark. The general (and snarky) conceit among critics seems to be: This movie could only “trick” us for so long (or something like that). For all the elaborate magic tricks, the flick as a whole lacked any significant substance. Though the friends we had over for for drinks last night saw it and loved so nevermind, I’ll count my prediction as a win. Friends over critics is what I always say.

Next time around we come to the end and it’s a bird...it’s a plane...it’s going to be a Rotten Week!
