We have already seen a number of major blockbusters released in 2018, but still it's special whenever we are getting a new Spielberg blockbuster. And not only that, but we have two other features on the docket. This week's movies take us to the world of virtual reality, a burned down church, and a woman looking for revenge on her husband. Let's take a look at Ready Player One, God's Not Dead: A Light in the Darkness, and Acrimony.

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
82%

Imagine the ultimate treasure hunt: an escape into virtual reality to find life-altering fame and fortune just by knowing a lot of crap about 80's pop culture. That's what you get in Ready Player One, the film adaptation of Ernest Cline's 2011 novel of the same name. And the book is a lot of things. It's a look ahead to a frightening future "reality." It's a "chosen one" tale about an underprivileged kid who games the system out of sheer hard work and smarts. And it's an homage to the 80's and all its cheesy music, television, movies and more. Steven Spielberg's adaptation looks fantastic, in many ways even bigger than the words on the page.

Critics seem to feel the same way about it following its early world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival. It is currently sitting at 81% with more than fifty reviews counted. Ready Player One is being praised for its visuals, lighthearted nature, frenetic energy and ability to rework the source material into a big budget hit. I don't expect it to move much at all as we get closer to the theatrical release.
