The month of May was filled with some absolutely huge, beloved, and successful films, from Captain America: Civil War to The Nice Guys to Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. We’re continuing to tear through Summer 2016, however, and we’re ready to flip the calendar page and dive head first into June’s lineup of blockbusters. Get ready for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, and Me Before You.

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.

TMNT: Out of the Shadows
Rotten Watch Prediction
Can a franchise have a renaissance if it was never that good to begin with? The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles look to put that question to the test with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, the second movie in the rebooted series. As a pre-teen, I saw the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the theater and even at the time thought, "Man this is corny." (I was 12) Now they are back as part of the modern kid culture with a second movie in this new-look TMNT. It’s kind of unreal. I mean these are radioactive, martial arts turtles in live action. Yikes.

The first movie in the franchise re-up, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles bombed with critics, and wound up with a 22% Rotten Tomatoes score - but because it seems we are still headed toward Idiocracy at warp speed, it grossed about a half a billion in box office sales. So of course there’s a sequel. I’m sure kids will eat it up faster than Donatello and company put down a pizza. But critics? Nah, this one finishes right around the first one.
