Two things Hollywood loves are remakes and animated movies. This week we are treated to both! Coming this Friday we've got the The Magnificent Seven and Storks. It's gonna be a Rotten Week!

Let's 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.

The Magnificent Seven
Rotten Watch Prediction
55%

Retelling the 1960 classic starring Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen (among many, many others), an updated The Magnificent Seven now has it's own all-star cast including Denzel Washington, Christ Pratt, and Ethan Hawke (among many, many others). The group is tasked with defending a small town in Western shoot'em up-style with a modern day vibe. It looks solid if unspectacular.

Directed by Antoine Fuqua, there does appear a similar vibe to his other action flicks, including Olympus has Fallen (48%), Brooklyn's Finest (43%), Shooter (48%) and Training Day (72%). His works have found varying levels of critical success, though it does appear his style, for the most part, translates here. Critics are liking it thus far, with the Tomatometer at 64% through 36 reviews. That's a solid score, which I doubt moves too much over the week. It's an action film first and foremost with the name recognition of the original and a great cast. I don't love the remake culture in Hollywood, but I think this one gets a pass (if not just for being a remake of a remake itself).
