While audiences will have the chance to take a break from big action blockbusters this week, there is no shortage of options when it comes to new releases. Comedy, history, horror and sports are all covered in the films hitting the big screen. Get ready for Blockers, Chappaquiddick, A Quiet Place and The Miracle Season.

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
87%

On its surface, Blockers looks incredibly stupid, and I'm honestly very lucky that a lot of reviews of the film are already online. There's no way without a significant head start that I would have put up the prediction anywhere in this range. Comedies like this typically have a massive critical uphill climb because raunchiness and hijinks don't appeal to all professional cinephiles. This looks like one of the rare exceptions.

This is Kay Cannon's first directorial work after penning all three Pitch Perfect movies (79%, 65%, 31% respectively). Critics are celebrating the story within the comedy as a female empowerment film for the teenagers as parents bumble their way through a landscape they simply don't understand. Blockers having an 89% through nearly fifty reviews is rarified air for this type of movie, and suggests a feature that offers laughs and heart in equal measure. Those make for the best kinds of comedies.
