Recapping last week:

Not a particularly strong week for the Rotten Watch. Starting with Homefront (Predicted: 51% Actual: 35%) which left me on the outside looking in with the score. I expected a bit more from my boys Statham and Franco, but the flick couldnít deliver, falling short of my expectations. Kristy summed up this kind of disappointment in her review calling the flick "flat". What a shame, as the filmís two major players really should have been able to pick up some slack in the script. But it was not to be, and this prediction just misses the mark.

Meanwhile, keeping the theme of close-but-no-cigar Black Nativity (Predicted: 67% Actual: 54%) also fell short of my range. Critics seemed to feel the musical component of the film was strong, carrying the production through the weaker elements of the plot. This kept the score above the middle, but still short of my prediction. Because this wasnít a widely reviewed movie (only sixty-three at time of post), thereís an outside chance of a few positive reviews trickling in over time and bumping this score within my ten percent range. Honestly, four more "thumbs up"s and Iíll be golden. So get to work critics. Like this movie so I can add it to the resume.

Next time around we see beautiful desolate Smaug and enjoy and Madea Christmas. Itís going to be a Rotten Week!
