Movie Irreview: Happy Death Day 2U


***

Wow.  Anytime a sequel improves upon its predecessor, it deserves massive kudos.  While I enjoyed Happy Death Day, I didn't love it.  It was well made, there was enough new brought to the Groundhog Day formula, and pretty fun.

Happy Death Day 2U, despite its awkward title (and, let's face it, the title of these movies suck), is so much better than the first.  It mostly sheds its claim to being an actual horror franchise in order to become, really, a pretty solid science fiction franchise.  Happy Death Day 2U is funnier, more heartfelt, and all in all more fun.

I'm probably being a little too nice in my rating (mostly out of sheer surprise), but...

8/10.
