What is Transylvania? Dracula's terror-tory
I've never been a huge fan of animated movies. I remember at school, we watched Finding Nemo, at least once a year and I'd be busy drawing stick figures in my notebook instead. After winning a Family Pass to Hotel Transylvania, I had to admit, it did seem like the most appealing animated movie, I had seen out in a while. I like all that sort of dark, quirky and funny humour.
Putting on my 3D glasses, which usually give me a headache 20 minutes in, (however in this movie I was too busy laughing and enjoying it, that I never noticed any discomfort) I was ready to get sucked in (yes, that was my attempt at a Dracula pun).
Adam Sandler as Dracula, owns a high-end 5 star Hotel, for Monsters to stay in and escape the "evil" humans. He built this in order to also protect his 118 year old daughter, Mavis (Selena Gomez). Yet, somehow, even with all the protection and security over the hotel, a young man (Andy Samberg) discovers it and that's when things take an even crazier turn.
In this movie, the vampires weren't a pain in the neck. I can truthfully say I loved every minute of it. The mix of well-known monsters, like Frankenstein, the Mummy and Zombies add for extra laughs and kookiness. Adam Sandler proved to be absolutely incredible as the voice of Dracula, while the other voice cast shined too.
It may be a little scary for the very young, but age 6 and up should appreciate this terrific movie. When watching in 3D, the special effects were really well done and at points made you even feel like you were exploring the hotel yourself.
This movie had the "Wow" factor for me, incorporating brilliant animation, laughs, quirkiness and a love story. I'll be sure to recommend it to anyone wanting to watch a great movie, young and old! Make sure you "check in" to Hotel Transylvania.
