Quick Review: HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U...

Tree Gelbman (Jessica Rothe) is on the hunt for another baby mask-wearing killer in HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U.

So I watched Happy Death Day 2U yesterday. It was just as enjoyable as 2017's Happy Death Day! Happy Death Day 2U not only worked on a horror film level (with nice bits of drama, a murder-mystery theme and comedy), but it also had some cool sci-fi elements too.

Make Happy Death Day 3Peat happen, Universal! Yes, I made that title up.

Quick Review: MISS BALA...

Gina Rodriguez plays Gloria, a make-up artist-turned-assassin in MISS BALA.

So I watched Miss Bala at the theater earlier today. Like last year's Sicario: Day of the Soldado, this film is released by Sony Pictures—meaning that it would be cool to see a crossover between Alejandro, the hit man played by Benicio Del Toro in Day of the Soldado (and 2015's Sicario, which wasn't distributed by Sony), and Gloria...the make-up artist-turned-assassin portrayed by Gina Rodriguez in Miss Bala! SPOILER ALERT: They are both rogue gunfighters who end up working as CIA assets to take down Mexican drug cartels. And they both look badass doing so! That is all.

Alejandro, played by Benicio Del Toro, opens fire on a hapless member of the Mexican drug cartel in 2018's SICARIO: DAY OF THE SOLDADO.
