Now that the summer has begun, we can expect week after week of big releases, and this last weekend in May is certainly no exception. We’ve got two big budget studio films coming down the pike and ready to head into wide release this Friday. Get ready for X-Men: Apocalypse and Alice Through the Looking Glass.

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.

X-Men: Apocalypse
Rotten Watch Prediction
I love the X-Men franchise and have yet to dislike anything they’ve brought to the table. Even the weaker offerings like X-Men: The Last Stand are only lesser by comparison to the whole. Both the originals and the reboot have such solid flicks and X-Men: Apocalypse’s director Bryan Singer has been on both sides of the franchise timeline with X-Men: Days of Future Past (91%) and X2: X-Men United (86%). But this one is struggling to keep up critically with the others.

A majority of reviews are already in and critics split it down the middle. Sitting at 51%, X-Men: Apocalypse is being applauded for the construction of its action sequences and the moral plot points; but the more negative voices are gripping about blandness and a possible oversaturation of the franchise. No matter what, I’ll still put the X-Men up against any other comic book franchise, but this one doesn’t look like it’ll top the list of reasons why.
