This Rotten Week: Predicting World War Z and Monsters University Reviews
Recapping last week:
Wow, did Man of Steel (Predicted: 89% Actual: 57%) ever plummet over the course of the week. The early reviews came out super strong (like what I did there?) but were infused with a health dose of Kryptonite (boom) leading the score blowing up like Kal-Elís home planet (Iím on fire). Critics were remarkably polarized on the film. Cinema Blendís Eric Eisenberg gave it four stars in his review, while CB head honcho Josh Tyler offered this:
Other critics? Not so much. Some flat out hated it. Having not seen it yet, Iíll save any real opinion here, though I will say Iím disappointed my prediction finished so far off the mark.
Meanwhile, This is the End (Predicted: 78% Actual: 85%) finished strong with some calling it the best stoner movie of all-time. While this might be an overstatement (stoners are nothing if not loyal to their movies), thereís no denying this comedy lived up to the cast billing. Having this many big names sharing screen time in a comedy doesnít always equal the sum of its parts. This is the End doesnít appear to suffer from star-overkill. Instead turning out a hilarious flick for stoners and well, everyone else.
Next time around the White House is going down, while Bullock and McCarthy bring the heat. Itís going to be a Rotten Week!
