This week sure makes us feel like the year is finally getting its movie swerve back. We are rolling into the swing of things with actual quality flicks to sink a tooth or two into thus fall. Coming this Friday, we've got Deepwater Horizon, Masterminds, and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. It's gonna be a Rotten Week!

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.

Deepwater Horizon
Rotten Watch Prediction
75%

From director Peter Berg, the hero who brought us Friday Night Lights, we now have the big screen story of the crew of Deepwater Horizon - oil drillers party to one of the biggest cluster fucks of environmental disasters we are likely to ever see in our lifetime. It's a little hard to make a hero story out of an event that basically poisoned a large portion of water and killed a lot of aquatic life - but Berg seems to have done it with this one. His directing career's been hit or miss with flicks like Lone Survivor (75%) and the aforementioned Friday Night Lights (81%) mixed in with crap like Battleship (34%) and Hancock (41%). Don't get me wrong, I love Berg, but critics haven't been so warm on him all the time.

Deepwater Horizon, though, is trending the right direction. It is currently sitting at 84% with 25 reviews counted. That's a great start, and I don't expect it to dip all that much throughout the week. It's just a shame we need to have this kind of source material.
