This summer has been a constant ebb and flow of big blockbusters and smaller movies, and following Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom's big debut last week, this time around we are looking more at the latter category. In other words, we don't have any big action or spectacle, but we do have the thriller Sicario: Day of the Soldado and the new comedy Uncle Drew.

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
61%

If there was a metric that tracked how often people watched a single sequence, I'd be the leader in the clubhouse when it comes to the boarder crossing scene from Sicario (93%). The whole movie was a butt-clenching, and a how-to in suspense and layered story, and now we have a sequel that's going to try and live up to it. Taylor Sheridan has written the screenplay for Sicario: Day of The Soldado, but director Stefano Sollima has taken the reins from Denis Villeneuve, telling a new story that follows follow Matt (Josh Brolin) and Alejandro (Benicio del Toro) in their quest to continue keeping the drug cartels off balance and disrupted.

It was always going to be tough for Sicario: Day of the Soldado to match up with the original, and early reviews are trending lower. It's currently at 68 percent with 19 reviews posted, and I suspect it continues to drop over the course of the week. It's a bit of an odd story to follow up on, especially because the main characters worked well as side notes to Emily Blunt in Sicario, but it does still look like it could end up with a "Fresh" rating.
