Hotel Transylvania Reviews
Chaos ensues as Mavis comes of age (118) and yearns to experience the outside world, complicated by the unexpected arrival of Johnny, young human vagabond extraordinaire. Disguised (by Dracula, to avoid causing a panic) as a distant relative to Frankenstein's Monster (also in attendance), Johnny-Stein's infectious slacker optimism gradually wins over the guests and eventually forges a grudging relationship with Dracula himself.
The film's only major fault is that there's literally something for everyone to identify with, from all points on along the generation gap. While this does make the movie thin in several places, the pacing ensures that the next in-joke shows up before anyone has time to think of refilling the popcorn bowl.
NOTE: For a movie replete with classic silver-screen monsters, the stylization keeps them well suited for younger audiences. The only truly dark spot comes when Dracula relates what happened to his wife so long ago, though even this is handled in a manner unlikely to cause concern for parents. Even the rare moments of adult humor are handled in such a way as to go right over the heads of younger viewers without notice, though adults are sure to enjoy a nudge and a knowing wink.
When who we are others are naturally scared when we are the most feared monster. When we are also a scared parent that is willing to protect our family from all things that are scary. When we teach how being inside is safe and outside is scary when there are way worst scary things that lurk. When we are not scared of our own kind but afraid of other kind we feel safe knowing others dont associate with other kinds to protect them. When what scares us the most is not knowing what is out there when we are shut off from the world. When our worst fears come true when we meet the vary thing that is scary to run away. When our worst fears come true when what's scary comes to us. When we are among monsters we naturally are scared. When what is scarier is knowing the truth when things could change once the scary thing others fear is present. When our ways are different that makes some things scary to others but not to us. When we get to see the vary thing we are scared about closer in a different light we see they are not so bad after all. When some monsters we should be scared of when they prepare the main course as you the meal. When scariest thing for some are not what they see what what they feel when finding love is scary and losing love is scary. When the only thing scary to others is when we realize we are the scariest monster to be afraid of. When we being perceived as scary to witnessing a scary event done by scary people we can't get past such a scary moment in our life that changed everything. When we see that the scariest thing is making our loved ones lose what we lost and never get a chance to experience what we did for our own shellfish needs. When we see we do anything for our family to venture into the scary part of the area to get what we want. When who we are and what we represent we are appreciated when there are fans who dedicate a day to showcasing the scariest part about the town a real life monster to be proud comes from here. When we see others are not scary as they make themselves to be to get their help. When we realize that who we are we are not that scary as well to be friends and fans of. When we are scared to let go of some people we only have and always have been holding to see them grow, it scares us losing that part in our life, but we gain a new part in our life which is less scarier.
Despite many many perks in all departments, Hotel left too bland a taste.
