In the depths of summer, there is opportunity for members of every demographic to go see movies - and while this weekend doesn't see the release of any typical summer blockbusters, we are seeing a healthy smorgasbord that is offering up options for all cinema fans. Get ready for the fast-paced crime thriller Baby Driver, the R-rated comedy The House, and the animated sequel Despicable Me 3. 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.

Baby Driver Ansel Elgort Jamie Foxx
Rotten Watch Prediction
95%

In Baby Driver, the latest film from director Edgar Wright, Ansel Elgort stars as Baby, a getaway driver extraordinaire who operates his life with earbuds in - speeding criminals around the streets of Atlanta with a specific soundtrack of his own design. And man this flick looks like a ton of fun. With the film making its world premiere at SXSW a couple months ago, critics have already had the opportunity to express opinions about this one, and so far its record is perfect. It's sitting at 100% on the Tomatometer with more than 30 reviews posted, and each one reads better the one before it.

Edgar Wright looks like he's using the same frenetic energy we saw in other works like Hot Fuzz (91%), The World's End (89%) and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (81%), which were all critical darlings in their own right. The star-studded Baby Driver looks like it's sporting some awesome car chases, and it appears to have more than enough laughs to go with the thrills. This is the exact kind of movie the summer needs, full of energy and originality. It's hard to imagine its Rotten Tomatoes score slipping very much.
