This week have two movies so wildly different from each other that it's almost like they shouldn't even be featured in the same article. But I don't make the release calendar, and few people make stuff as weird as Darren Aronofsky anyway. Get ready for American Assassin and mother!

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.

Rotten Watch Prediction

Um, what? Man, the trailer for Darren Aronofsky's mother! was tough for me to get through, and not because it made the movie looked bad. It's mostly because it's such a weird mind-fuck. Aronofsky already has multiple movies on his resume that may make you physically ill - Pi (87%), Requiem for a Dream (78%) - and his latest looks like it might have the same psychological effect. It appears part horror movie, part thriller, and 100% sure to make you squirm in your seat.

Aronofsky has an impressive resume when it comes to critical reaction, with other movies like The Wrestler (98%) and Black Swan (87%) providing very different watching experiences. The dude has range. Mother! has a fantastic cast (led by Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem), and is sitting at 78% through 40 reviews. While it's scoring pretty positive, the critics who didn't like it, hated it. It's polarizing nature makes me think the score will drop significantly once more eyeballs see it.
