Hotel Transylvania 2 – Maven

Adam Sandler’s sequel made even more money than the first movie. So that must mean it’s better…right?

Welcome back, Maven. How’s the family?

I’m someone who actually enjoyed the first movie to an unexpected degree – the animation was incredibly energetic and fitting, the story about “letting the kid go” was done pretty well and I didn’t mind the true-to-life lack of an actually bad guy – but the sequel is a huuuge disappointment and a letdown. For all the reasons you listed (though especially that ending that contradicts the whole story and the point of the film) and more. Even that amazing animation style was changed visibly and not in a good way, at least in my opinion.

I need point out one thing.. Vampires are human! It is a curse what cause rise od dead body and sustaining it “undead” state by stealing life force from living. I know that Hollywood make them less like that but still this analogy is hilarious.

Yes and no.
Once they become the undead, blood thirsty creature; they are no longer *human*.

Look at cannibalism and necrophilia… Once you commit to that, you have voided your *human* cred.

I’m now wondering if Maven (as distinct from Elisa) is also married to Paw, since that would make hers a “mixed marriage” too. Cute kid, though.

I’m surprised no asshole has began bitching about “indoctrination” and “brainwashing” in regards to the ending.

Why WOULD you be surprised?!

Lets just say there’s a reason “if X were honest” and Dogu’s “sjw” jokes are sheepishly worshipped ’round these parts

Because they’re as averse to making a direct point as you are? After all, if you say something outright, you have to take responsibility for it.

Gotta say it… Maven hits the nail so hard on the head that it made sparks. I think any one of us could have written a better movie. I think it would have been a better movie if Dennis was human thus Dracula has to change and grow. It seemed like there were five or six different stories all mashed together and none of them work. I was honestly shocked by how much bigotry there was in this film! I think that Sandler should stick to producing and leave the writing,directing and ACTING to everybody else. Seriously… He should stick… Read more »

omg your kid is so freaking cute!!! [and i don’t say that very often] couldn’t agree more, everyone i know loved Hotel Transylvania and i’m left going ‘why?” the only thing i liked was Steve Buscemi as the wolfman, but that’s just because it combined two things i love.

Actually, he should be a Dhampyre, a human-vampire hybrid that most often becomes a powerful vampire killer.

Then again, to quote an alternate version of the character, “Only a human can truly destroy a monster!”

Apparently Doug Walker likes both of these films. I’d kinda like to see the two of them debate over it.

I’m surprised nobody mentioned Dunpeels in this movie…you know, the result of a vampire producing a child with an unturned human? Which is what this kid IS? It could have even been a good compromise ending.

First, Maven, your boy is adorable <3 Second, I am pretty sure that Maven and paw are canonically Married, they are certainly a couple(watch Music Movies, by PAW and you will see their in character relationship develop). Third, I think a factor that Maven and maybe some of the commenters are missing is that Adam Sandler is a Jew, and this movie is the story of a modern Jewish family dealing with modern day dating and marriage. I think Catholics, Russian orthodox, and Greek orthodox might also recognize and Identify with the characters in this movie as well, not to… Read more »

This was probably my favorite review of yours. I like both movies. It’s still better than 90% of Adam Sandler movies. I wasn’t made by Happy Madison Studios. That’s always a plus. I like your thoughts.
