Excerpt: This is a great little animated movie where a human and monster fall in love. The AQ and PQ are both excellent. Until the extras you almost getting the feeling this is Pixar like, almost a spin off of Monsters Inc. As for extra content you only get about 41 minutes worth and the short included is not as good as Pixar's shorts are. You do however get a commentary, a DVD copy and a Digital copy (online version) that was still valid.
Excerpt: Not as impressively funny as I was expecting to see given the comedic talents involved but nonetheless a regular run of the mill family animated entertaining film featuring cinema's most famous scary monsters from over the years. The side note being a subplot featuring Dracula's daughter. That's funny in-itself. Outside of that Sony turns out a nice looking PQ & AQ reference blu with shining colors and a smooth visual spectacle. The 5.1 DTS track is clear and crisp.
Excerpt: Count Dracula (Adam Sandler) is the owner of a 5 star hotel for monsters. He has a daughter named Mavis (Selena Gomez) who falls for a fun human named Jonathan (Andy Samberg). Thin plot, Dracula surviving sunlight and the message of letting go child was the low points. The gags and soundtrack were terrific, nothing groundbreaking or special about the entire film. A family flick for kids which showcases a variety of monsters.
Summary: The thing that I liked most about the movie was the relationship between Dracula and his daughter. The human made me laugh and certain other parts as well. But not many. The ending was cute. I wished I could have liked this movie. I really did.
Excerpt: For those of you that are loyal readers of my reviews (I love you all) you will know that i usually watch these kind of films due to my children. However now i am tending to watch alot of these computer animated (The new age cartoons) films on my own as i am really starting to enjoy them. Hotel Transylvania is one of them, my daughter had seen it in it's initial theatrical run and told me she really enjoyed it.
