    Happy Death Day 2U

    ★★★

    Man, did I want to LOVE Happy Death Day 2U. I'm a vocal fan of the first one and thrilled by its success. The movie begged for a franchise treatment, and I eagerly anticipated it's release. Unfortunately, 2U goes 2Big, and doesn't stick the landing.

    There's a lot to love, though.

    Jessica Rothe's all-in performance is maybe even better than her first turn as Tree. She's so damn likable and compelling, I'm willing to follow her on wherever the movie…

    ★★★★

    Wow.

    I loved this fantastic little movie. The performances, rather than the horror, were at the center. Everyone here feels lived-in. The mystery is compelling, and the third act had me squirming in my chair.

    I love this movie. It’s a rare “just as good as the book” type of film where everything clicks. The performances are top notch, the score is evocative, and every dramatic beat is well excecuted and earned.
