Simply A Masterpiece
Am i the only one who thinks........Average?
The story, direction, characters, and writing/dialogue is akin to taking a tranquilizer shot to the neck, but everything else was so well done.
This is one of my favourite films. I am still a little girl at heart.
Well really nice and enjoyable movie!!! Very interesting to watch and do recommend to everyone who hasn't watched it yet!!!
The movie was cute and my little one liked it so I can't be too critical.As for me, it looked like a Disney movie with monsters. Mavis (Selena Gomez) was the Disney princess except she's the daughter of Count Dracula. Same difference. She wants to explore the world outside of the protective bubble created by her father. Her father, based upon his negative experiences, goes to great lengths to keep his daughter from the bad world outside of the Hotel Transylvania walls. Of course that can only last so long and of course there will be a falling out and then the reunification.Everything from beginning to end followed the Disney formula. I guess that's why it did so well.
I got all the way to the end of this before I realized what was missing - crucifixes. This traditional way of repelling a vampire (here the most famous one - Dracula) is omitted, presumably because a healthy number of the production staff are of Jewish ancestry and/or faith.I just have a problem with someone trying to re-write fictional characters now grown to legends, just because some details don't mix with their personal beliefs. I accept fantasy stories within whatever context they present themselves. So when "Hotel Transylvania" delves deep enough into Dracula lore to present him sporting fangs, sleeping in a coffin, and wanted by angry torch-carrying villagers sporting wooden stakes and mallets - but omits crucifixes... the whole thing left me feeling a bit cross.
