This Rotten Week: Predicting Hercules, Lucy And And So It Goes Reviews

This Rotten Week: Predicting Sex Tape, The Purge: Anarchy, And Planes: Fire And Rescue Reviews
We're sort of getting into the dregs of the summer movie season with some bigger name flicks that look completely uninspiring hitting the big screen. It makes me wish I had just gone ahead and done a writeup about Boyhood (Predicted: Amazing, Actual: 100%) just for the sheer brilliance of the concept and execution. Alas, we are stuck with planes, sex tapes and purges.
This Rotten Week: Predicting Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes Reviews
After a one-week long, unexpected hiatus from This Rotten Week, I am back and better than ever. Did my reader(s) miss me? I promise I wonít do it again. There is only one movie on the docket this time around, and it's a sequel about the inevitable ape takeover of Earth. It should start any day now.
This Rotten Week: Predicting Transformers: Age Of Extinction Reviews
It's been a pretty slow week around The Rotten Office, which is good because most of my mental energy is being consumed focusing the U.S. game against Portugal. But movies persist and there is one on the docket today. The Transformers are back and hopefully not headed to extinction
This Rotten Week: Predicting Jersey Boys And Think Like A Man Too Reviews
Mrs. Rotten Week is away for a girlís weekend leaving me with Little RW for the last couple of days. Happy Fatherís Day, I guess. What did we do?

There arenít any superhero movies on the docket this week but weíve got Jersey crooners and thinking like men again.
This Rotten Week: Predicting 22 Jump Street And How To Train Your Dragon 2 Reviews

This Rotten Week: Predicting Edge Of Tomorrow And The Fault In Our Stars Reviews
Itís a beautiful day in this neighborhood. Which means Mrs. Rotten Week has a laundry list of outdoor jobs needing be done. Theyíll have to wait though. Weíve got a lot of business to take care of with movies coming out this week. Cruise goes Phil Connors and Shailene Woodley gets sick.
This Rotten Week: Predicting Maleficent And A Million Ways To Die In The West Reviews
Iím running a little behind after my annual trek to the holy and sacred ground known as the Monmouth Race Track for our yearly Memorial Day extravaganza of beer and yelling at little men atop horses.

This Rotten Week: Predicting Godzilla And Million Dollar Arm Reviews
Sneaking in one last Happy Motherís day to all those moms out there, in particular Mrs. Rotten Week, who keeps the parenting on lock down around here. She has to because Iím mostly just thinking about movies all the time. My brain can only do so many things at once. She really picks up the slack, which is great. Love you baby! This week weíve got Godzilla and one expensive arm.
This Rotten Week: Predicting Neighbors, Moms' Night Out and Legends Of Oz Reviews
With summer in the air we have some bigger and bigger movies hitting the silver screen.

This week weíve got bad neighbors, moms hitting the town and Dorothy returning to Oz.

Do you feel something? Is there a disturbance in the air around you? A shift in the "rightness" of the world? Is there something out there heightening your awareness? Thatís your Spidey Sense tingling because the wall-crawling webslinger is swinging back into theaters this weekend. Iím pumped.
This Rotten Week: Predicting The Other Woman, Brick Mansions And The Quiet Ones Reviews
Big movie weeks are ahead of us, and this is the crappy quiet before the awesome. Hold fast Rotten Week-ites, better times are coming. But for now we have other women, brick mansions and quiet ones to talk about.
