This Rotten Week: Predicting Prisoners And Battle of the Year Reviews
Football season is in full effect so who really cares about movies on a Sunday? You and I of course. That’s why we’re here, to look at the real Sunday scores, the Tomatometer percentages. Those are the only numbers that count. This week we’ve got prisoners and dancing.
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 what This Rotten Week has to offer.
We only have Little Rotten Week running around the house right now, so she gets all the love this family can give. If for some reason, she disappeared tomorrow I don’t know what I’d do.

Go out, find the guy with the creepy kidnapping RV, affirm that he, in fact is creepy and therefore most likely guilty. Then from there, well he better hope my daughter stops playing hide and seek in time.
Canadian director Denis Villenueve helms this in a followup to last year’s Incedies (92%) which was nominated for Academy Award in the Best Foreign Language Film. Actually, my man had a pretty solid Toronto International Film Festival debuting this flick and Enemy (100% and also starring Jake Gyllenhaal who’s fairly quietly putting together quite the resume). Early reviews are overwhelmingly positive (89% through about twenty) and look to stay that way when it’s rolled out for the rest of the critical world.
