January to February 2017 Tomatometer Predictions

Tomatometer Guess: 75%.

Actual Score: 92%. Hidden Figures wonderfully sheds light on an overlooked part of history. The acting from the entire cast is solid. All three main leads are likable and empathetic (Kevin Costner is also great), the story is fascinating, and though it's a smidge paint by numbers, the film as a whole is a feel-good experience that will make you appreciate the true story more.

Tomatometer Guess: 6%. Based on early reviews, the fifth installment of this supernatural film series looks dead on arrival.

Actual Score: 13%.

Tomatometer Guess: 70%.

Actual Score: 86%. It's not exactly a movie you'll want to watch over and over again, but A Monster Calls is a well-acted and touching film that pulls no punches when it comes to its subject material without ever feeling manipulative or sappy.

Live by Night (2016)
Tomatometer Guess: 36%.

Actual Score: 33%. Live By Night offers Great production values, stunning cinematography, and several intense action scenes, but the acting is surprisingly hit and miss, the main character is uninteresting, and the movie sort of falls apart at the end. A disappointment, but not a completely irredeemable film.

Tomatometer Guess: 10%.

Actual Score: 24%. Let's cut to the case, The Bye Bye Man is awful in every aspect (acting, writing, realism, scares). But it's so awful at times, that it becomes unintentionally funny. Unless you want a cheap laugh, don't bother with this.

Tomatometer Guess: 56%.

Actual Score: 29%. If you have really young kids, they're probably going to love the hell out of this movie, if you're above the age of 7, you'll probably find to be uninteresting and dull. Paramount Pictures essentially spent $115 Million on a 90 minute toy commercial.

Tomatometer Guess: 20%. Vin Diesel returns in this sequel to the 2002 sleeper hit, xXx. Will it prove to be a fun time at the movies, or will it be an Extreme dud?

Tomatometer Guess: 80%. After breaking his mediocrity streak with 2015's The Visit, M. Night Shyamalan returns with this psychological thriller starring James McAvoy.

Actual Score: 78%. Split is yet another solid and tense thriller in the classic style of M. Night Shyamalan. Though the plot is a bit silly, James McAvoy absolutely sells it with his portrayal of each personality, managing to evoke both sympathy and fear the character.

Tomatometer Guess: 17%. The movie series loosely based on the popular video games reaches its conclusion in its sixth installment. And by "conclusion", they probably mean take a 5-year hiatus and reboot.

Actual Score: 43%. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter has all of the mindless action, thin story, and loose tie-ins to the games as the previous films. If you liked the last five, you'll like this. If you haven't, this won't change your mind.

Tomatometer Guess: 40%.

Actual Score: 13%. The Space Between Us is an overly sentimental, sappy, and cheesy YA romance story that will do very little for anyone besides its intended audience.

Tomatometer Guess: 10%. The sequel to the movie adaptation of a glorified Twilight fanfiction looks like it has more of the things that made the first film "great".

Actual Score: 8%. To nobody's shock, Fifty Shades Darker is every bit as awful and soul-crushing its predecessor.

All of the hallmarks of the series are back, including terrible acting, cringeworthy dialogue, loathsome characters, cheesy soap opera tier writing, sex scenes that are awkward and laughable, and a love story that is in fact, WORSE than Twilight.

If you're already a fan of the material, then you've probably already seen it by now. If you're like me and hated the first one, stay as far away from this one as possible.

Tomatometer Guess: 88%. Seeing as how Batman was one of the many highlights of The LEGO Movie and was already one of the most profitable fictional icons, it was no surprise to hear that he would be getting his own spin-off movie.

However, only time will tell if it had the same passion in heart put into its construction as the original.

Actual Score: 90%. The LEGO Batman Movie is a blast! The animation is vibrant and colorful, the jokes and visual gags are gut-busting funny and rapid fire. There are tons of references to the comics and previous movies (The writers of this movie show that they understand the character of Batman inside and out), and the movie is full of heart that gives it depth.

If you are a fan of LEGOs, Batman, comic books, or animation in general, you owe it to yourself to see this movie as soon as you can.

Actual Score: 90%. John Wick: Chapter 2 is just as exciting, action packed, and satisfying as the first film. Check it out as soon as possible.

Actual Score: 100%. Get Out is a not only very good horror movie, it's also surprisingly funny and a very impressive directorial debut from Jordan Peele. Go Check it Out!
