The fall movie season is offering up a little bit of of everything this week, with a big book adaptation, historical drama, and something for the tweens arriving in theaters. Coming this Friday, we've got The Girl On The Train, The Birth of a Nation, and Middle School: The Worst Year of My Life. 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.

The Girl On The Train
Rotten Watch Prediction
74%

The Girl On The Train was a novel that looks like it was basically written to become a movie. It's a nail-biter with a super-focused plot centered on Rachel, an alcoholic daily train passenger who fantasizes about a couple she she has spent years watching. Unfortunately, it's this daily action that gets her caught up in a mystery surrounding the woman's disappearance.

Do I buy Emily Blunt as the down-in-the-dumps blackout alcoholic whose life is in shambles like from the book? Nah, but this is Hollywood after all. The movie looks well-paced and suspenseful with an excellent cast. Director Tate Taylor adapted another popular book, The Help (75%), into a watchable flick and it appears he's done the same here with The Girl On The Train. No early reviews are out yet, but I suspect it finishes well on the Tomatometer based on the source material
