Which is why I also looked at MC user scores and they basically give the same results.

Re: Happy Death Day 1 and 2 : the MC user scores are only slightly higher (around 6.5), same goes for their IMDB scores (6.5 and 6.2), so it's not the critics.

Interesting. Although I'd never give any credence to the user scores either haha

I guess you're right; even Jodie Foster has gone there with a movie like Elysium.

I'm a huge Swank fan and am sure she'll hit all the right notes with this one. I was also pleasantly surprised to see other recognizable actors like Madigan, Roberts, Hartley, and W. Duvall. So obviously they don't feel like this movie is beneath them if they accepted the roles. Maybe they were drawn to political statements intended by the script. Maybe they did need to pay their taxes like all of us.

And I'm not even downing the movie! I'm all for a nice fun gore-fest once in a while. I was simply surprised to see this is where Swank ended up.

Additionally, on IMDB she's slated for "Fatale" on October 9, 2020. Tag line is: "a married man is tricked into a murder scheme by a female police detective." Maybe she has broken bad!
I have heard the phrase "difficult to cast" with Swank before. Basically, she's not your traditional pretty Hollywood actress. She is pretty but in a more intriguing and arresting way.

Let's put it this way, her gifts are more specialized rather than the vanilla skillset across Hollywood. So when you do find the right role for her, she flourishes. But otherwise, she has too much individuality to pigeon hole her into traditional Hollywood roles. There are perhaps some other good actors like that in Hollywood. She's one of them.

I don't always, but I find those useful double checks on the critics scores.

A defense of the movie from an unusual quarter.
