The holiday movie season is in full gear this year, with some big flicks coming out just in time for the long Thanksgiving weekend. Get ready for Creed, Victor Frankenstein and The Good Dinosaur.

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.

Creed
Rotten Watch Prediction
I remember being excited for Rocky V. It was fresh off Rocky’s defeat of that bastard Ivan Drago, and it just seemed like another Balboa film was coming at just the right time. That sentiment proved very much incorrect, as Rocky V was straight trash. Then, in very underdog fashion, Rocky Balboa actually punched its way to critics’ hearts – and nothing more shocking has ever happened in the history of movies. Except that now we are getting another iteration called Creed, and it looks even better.

Take a look at a real boxing movie in the trailer below:
This film, from the trailer and the early reviews, is a clear example of how true talent can take really any subject matter or story line and turn it into a legit piece of art. There is absolutely no reason an effective Rocky VII should be anything but a straight-to-DVD flick and yet here we are. Playing the angle of Apollo Creed’s son coming out of the woodwork in order to fight his own personal demons and for his father’s legacy is the kind of thing that could be terrible. Except when that kid is played by Michael B. Jordan and the director is Ryan Coogler.

These two teamed up for the gut-wrenching Fruitvale Station (94%) and are back now with a story about a kid looking to make sense out of the senseless death of his father (by the hands of a roided-out Russian). The trailer for Creed looks fantastic and the early reviews have it at 88% with almost twenty reviews posted. That there is even a hint of Oscar buzz is a testament to the filmmaking ability.
