The summer blockbuster season is still rolling on - and this week is a special one, as it happens to be the first week of July. Will the crop of new movies get big reviews and blow up at the box office? We'll have to wait and see, as we have The BFG, The Legend of Tarzan and The Purge: Election Year arriving in a theater near you.

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 BFG
Rotten Watch Prediction
68%

In our day and age, it seems like The BFG would stand for something graphic - like if you were pissed off about something. It's perhaps a little too close to BFD, so when I see "The BFG," I can't think of another particular word that starts with "F" other than "friendly." Of course, that wasn't what Roald Dahl had in mind when he wrote the story, as he penned the book of the same name about a dream-capturing giant who takes a young orphan girl under his wing and off they go adventuring. Directed by the legendary Steven Spielberg, the big screen adaptation is live action movie with a heavy dose of CGI, and it certainly looks as though it has some magic flowing through its veins.

Steven Spielberg continues to churn out critical hit after critical hit theses days, with his latest being Bridge of Spies (91%) and Lincoln (90%). The guy may be pushing 70 years old, but he continues to make big movies that people love. Critics aren't as high on The BFG, which currently sits with a 70% on the Tomatometer. But that number really only looks low by comparison to Spielberg's incredible legacy. Appearing to be a very kid-friendly big screen adventure, I predict that the score will stay in this region as more reviews continue to flow in.
