    Happy Death Day 2U

    ★★★

    This isn't a horror movie, it's a comedy. Jessica Rothe is really good in her role as Tree, a woman stuck trying to get her self out of the time loop she's in.

That was the most disappointing aspect of the movie.

I also saw 'The Empire Strikes Back' and 'Return of the Jedi' during their original runs. I remember the excitement of seeing them being pretty incredible. 'Star Wars' was especially big.

    Even as I grew through my teenage years with the series, I didn't think of it any differently than other franchises like…
