Beyond My Imagination (by ChristinaBarrett-USA1986)
This movie is most appreciated. My favorite in the movie is the Count Dracula. There were so many creative things put in this. I honestly did not personally like the little boy myself, whereas the Count saw so much in him being his grandson, impressive. It was cute to see the girl with her dad. I don't recall seeing the 1st installment. The father was pretty cool but a little annoying. I guess no little pets in this one save for the hundreds or whatever of the little wolf creatures. I guess the little boy was cute in some ways, save for things like the bulbous red curly hair. He was a <more>
little mushy for even if he is a little boy. Anyway, most of what makes this movie what it is is the collective work of all the artists, especially also with the storyboard sequence humor, and the voice of Dracula.
Loving, Forgiving and Just a Little Bit Crazy! (by rannynm)
This animated movie directed by Genndy Tartakosky is truly hilarious and left the audience and me laughing out loud. If you didn't enjoy the original Hotel Transylvania very much, give this sequel another try because I truly believe this movie is much better than the original. By far my favorite character is Dracula Adam Sandler , because he is such a special character. He is so loving, forgiving and maybe just a little crazy sometimes. This movie makes me want to have a grandfather like him because he is so powerful and loving. A continuous joke is Dracula trying to get used to his cell <more>
phone. His fingernails are too long to type with so he is always frustrated with this new technology.The relationship between Dracula and his daughter, Mavis Selena Gomez is so beautiful and memorable. With very exciting news, Mavis is pregnant! It's a boy! The strong bond between baby Dennis and his "Vampa" vampire grandpa Dracula, is my absolute favorite relationship through this whole movie because their love is so strong even though it is hard for Dracula to accept that his grandson is half human. Dracula is concerned that his grandson hasn't indicated that he is going to be a vampire, so he takes five of his hotel friends to try to scare the fangs out of Dennis. They go on this ridiculous adventure to do whatever it takes to get Dennis's fangs showing. Will Dennis be more like his mother who is a vampire, or stay a human like his father?Adam Sandler puts his own spin on this movie. As co-writer of the screenplay, his goofy short songs pop up throughout the movie. Not only are the song lyrics funny, but they are also relatable and entertaining for the audience because he takes commonly known songs such as twinkle twinkle and alters the words to be slightly inappropriate and silly. The special effects are outstanding and I enjoyed all of the different things they do with the animation. I watched this film in 3D and loved how it makes the characters and settings pop and makes each setting special. In the scene where Dracula leads Dennis and some other monster guests on a crazy adventure, there are so many special effects that it becomes total chaos. The message of this film is that no matter how different someone else is, they could be the best thing that ever happens to you, so love them no matter how different they are. This film really makes me realize how crucial to accept others.The character Blobby, a gelatinous blob, is definitely a crowd pleaser and the younger audiences laughed out loud at his silly antics. The target audience for Hotel Transylvania 2 is anyone who wants to laugh and have a good time. I recommend this movie for ages 5 to 18 because some of the scenes might be a little scary for some young children. I recommend seeing this movie in 3D as well because it is a very cool experience and give it 5 out of 5 stars because this movie is truly hilarious. Reviewed by Lainey A., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.
Animation movie that stars Adam Sandler in a comedy that is fun for all ages. (by patrickclay)
This movie is definitely very funny. Overall the plot isn't something that is a serious message and IF the audience accepts the fact that they are only going to be getting a funny movie out of Hotel Transylvania, then the experience will be much better. The evolution of Drac's beloved hotel is apparent in this movie. When his grandson enters the setting this changes the dynamic of the movie making it more interesting. The animation in this film is nonetheless, absolutely incredible. I have to hand it to the animation design crew, because in that regard, this movie was something <more>
special. The introduction was a little sped up, and the movie itself moves very fast so if you stop to take a pee break, there's a good chance you will definitely get lost in the movie. 9/10 from me. Patrick Clay
Hilarious! Great film for children and adults (by trguyiii)
My husband and I took our 3 year old to see this film a few weeks ago and I already want to go back and see it again. I laughed harder than most children in the audience. There were such great references to old Hollywood monster movies and TV shows that the younger children don't understand yet, but were hilarious. I love the overall concept of the storyline and it wasn't a repeat of the first film. The ability of the writers to poke fun at both a younger parent generation with the first child syndrome of over-protectiveness to the older parent generation seeing no danger because <more>
"that's how I learned" was spot on. I highly recommend this film to both young children and parents.
This movie is hilarious, for kids AND for adults! (by Amthermandes)
Just got back from seeing it in theaters, and let me tell you, there were several moments when just the kids would laugh, and moments when just the adults would laugh, and even moments when everybody laughed. This is coming from a guy who doesn't watch a lot of "kid" movies, and I can tell Adam Sandler wanted more than just kids to enjoy it, so he threw in child-raising jokes, nipple jokes, and a few other jokes and themes that go right over your average kid's head. And of course there's silliness plentiful for the kiddies to enjoy. If you're reading reviews, you <more>
should already be familiar with the plot, which in a nutshell for those who aren't, is basically the two kids from the first one are older and married and have a kid, who the grandfather, Count Dracula, hopes is a Dracula/monster like his own bloodline, but it doesn't seem to be the case. So family relationships are slightly strained in this movie as Dracula wonders if he'll be helping to raise his vampire grandson, or watching his human grandson and human son-in-law and vampire daughter move away and leaving him behind alone in his hotel, to go live with *gasp* HUMANS. So on top of it being hilarious for everybody, there's a lot more to it as well. Obviously if you're a fan of the first Hotel Transylvania, it's a guarantee you'll enjoy this sequel. The style of animation is exaggerated, highly sporadic, like a human gas molecule with ADHD and an IV inserted coffee bag. There is a lot going on in almost every scene, and with the characters behaving so hyper, it may take a couple viewings to take in all in. The humor is quick, very in your face, but welcoming. And trust me, humor is a-plenty. There are a few minor flaws; while tailored to two separate audiences, obviously there will be moments where one side will feel out of place. Either a child will cock their head to the side in puzzlement and maybe laugh but only because the adults are, or an adult will think to themselves "well that was just weird." And yes it's mostly a kid's movie so much of everything is easy to swallow. Go see it, even if you don't have kids, it's a fun, easy-going flick that's sure to make you jiggle with joy like Blobby. The characters are fun and diverse as before, humor is constant, and for those sticklers out there you know who you are , the plot exists and it flows sufficiently enough to follow, and at a reasonable pace. So bust out your popcorn and brain juice, and enjoy this light-hearted comedy.
Well, many people says this movie sucks but I think they are saying it because Adam Sandler is in the movie but I think this is a good movie, it's funny, is not trying to be something it is not because is not a movie with a super message obviously no, it knows that is just funny, the animation is beautiful, the mayority of the characters are OK but it have some flaws and they are: it have some characters that are in the movie just because they have to be on it but they really unnecessary and boring characters. The opening scenes feel very accelerated and many things pass so fast that you <more>
can't pay attention to all of them. I would say that is as good as the first one but I think that isn't better and they are in the same place, none is better than the other. Well I'm going to give it an 8.2 of 10, it's a good movie that is really enjoyable to watch.
When I first heard this movie was announced I did not know what to think. The first one was entertaining, witty and brought a new spin the old story of a dad not thinking the "slacker dude" is good enough for his daughter. There have been many occasions where sequels either aren't as good as the original or wear out the original concept too much. This movie thankfully does neither of those things. From start to finish this movie feels fresh and unrestricted by the expectations set by the first.If you've seen any of the previews you already know the plot. Johnathan, the human <more>
from the first movie, and Mavis, Dracula's own daughter, get married and have a child which they are raising in Dracula's hotel. Count Dracula, proud of his own heritage as a monster, wishes for his grandson becoming a vampire like himself and is concerned when he does not show signs of being a monster. He also wishes to raise him the traditional monster way. This of coarse begins to clash with the human teachings from the other half of his family and cause the conflict of the entire movie. Said conflict is whether or not young Dennis should be raised in the hotel or in the monster-less safe human world. Though this plot sounds like the first one remixed, I feel it is more of a continuation as good sequels should be. The animation is on par if you've seen the first movie, which is not bad. The animation of the first movie was active and full of life and that same attention drawing quality animation is here again. Everything in this movie flows to an unseen rhythm and nothing feels stiff or artificial. That's not saying there aren't a few scenes that are more dynamic then the first movie, because there is, but as a whole if you liked the animation from the first movie you will like it here as well.As far as the characters go everyone is as kooky as they were in the first movie. Adam Sandler's brilliant comedic version of Dracula taking center stage, leading the still funny renditions of classic movie monsters. As Dracula, Sandler is just the right amount of hammy without it being off-putting. Such a performance makes it seem as if the over the top way movie monsters acted in our films was just the "old way" of acting for them.The mood and colors used in the movie are a great mix of themes. The moody backdrops with dank dark colors fit the horror movie style the characters in the movie originate from perfectly. Then add some bright colors to mimic the happy comedic tone of the movie. Combining this together you have a brilliant mix of happy and spooky that made both the first movie and this one enjoyable for everyone. When it comes down to it Hotel Transylvania 2 is a heartwarming family movie full of comedy that everyone, whether you're big or small, can enjoy.
