Overall, the Rotten Watch had another nice week with two of the three movies falling within 10% of their respective predictions. Den of Thieves (Predicted: 43% Actual: 40%) was a near direct hit, and falls firmly in that "destined for cool basic cable watch" not too far in our future. These kind of heist/action films have their place in the movie world in that they can be fun without the expectation level getting all that high.

12 Strong (Predicted: 71% Actual: 54%) finished on the right side of positive even though my prediction was just a little out of range. I probably boosted the score a little too much on the "emotional war movie" piece and ignored that there could just be a meh flick in there lurking. Critics who disliked it used words like "superficial" and "bland," two things you definitely don't want from a movie in this genre. It wasn't all bad of course, but it definitely had critics split down the middle.

And finally, no one was conflicted at all about _Forever My Girl _(Predicted: 21% Actual: 18%). It sucked. My prediction on this one was pretty easy. It didn't take much to tell from the trailer that this was a sappy mess, meant to cater to exactly one small subset of viewers. Hell, the trailer didn't even have any dialogue, just a country song playing. That could have been for effect, or it could have been because the movie had absolutely nothing to say.

Next time around, we've got Winchester: The House that Ghosts Built. It's gonna be a Rotten Week!
