Goosebumps may or may not have done it better, but they definitely did it first. Well, maybe not "first", the idea that cameras are cursed objects has seemingly been around for about 5 seconds less than there's been cameras, but certainly before this. Polaroid jumps from "seen this" to "seen that" and on and on as fast as it can, and as much as I like Kathryn Prescott, it's not exactly a stellar vehicle for her.
I feel veeeeery much that we've done this dance before now. I definitely didn't hate The Hidden World, the animation's pretty speccy, Toothless is eternally adorable, some of the creature design is pretty cool (especially the new bad guy's beasties) and I appreciate ending a franchise on your own terms. But to me, this is still definitely the low point of the trilogy. Not crap, for sure, but hit on a lot of things I genuinely don't care for.
Strong contender for best John Wick movie to date. And that ain't faint praise. I've been strong invested in the franchise ever since it was first announced John Wick would be a playable character in Payday 2. Then when I actually watched that first movie? Forget about it. I fuckin' love this guy. And now, here we are with a trilogy cappin' Parabellum. Strength to strength to goddamn strength.
A notable step down from the first Happy Death Day but I was still pretty happy with this. There are some problems though. Calling it repetitive seems like a no-brainer, given the content, but it's not so much that 2U is doing mostly the same thing as the first one, as that it's doing the same thing as the first one, and that all of the things that are changed are worse. I didn't need an explanation or really much of anything that I saw in 2U. But I guess something had to give if Happy Death Day was going to get a sequel, and as I said, I didn't dislike this. I actually actively did like it. I just don't think it was up to the standard off the first, which even then, was good but not great.
A worthwhile build-up with a pretty "meh" payoff.
