I have never been a fan of animation movies, except for the Tom and Jerry series.


Come on, who doesn’t like Tom and Jerry? Even my old man, who doesn’t have a great sense of humour, also enjoys the humorous cat and mouse chase.

Animation movies didn’t appeal me much at all until I saw Hotel Transylvania 2.

If all cartoons were like Hotel Transylvania 2 or something like it, I wouldn’t mind sitting with the little ones for a few good laughs.

But perhaps the reason why Hotel Transylvania 2 is different from the others is because it features one of my favourite comedy actors, Adam Sandler.

Sandler has the Midas touch when it comes to comedy movies.

In Hotel Transylvania 2, he lends his voice to main character Dracula, and it’s already reaping gold.

For the benefit of those who haven’t seen Hotel Transylvania, Dracula (Sandler), the owner of high-end resort where the world’s monsters take a rest from human civilisation, invites some of the most famous monsters to celebrate the 118th birthday of his daughter, Mavis (Selena Gomez).

Unexpectedly, 21-year-old traveler Jonathan (Andy Samberg) drops by to the hotel and later, falls in love with Mavis.

Dracula goes all-out to protect his daughter from Jonathan and Hotel Transylvania’s reputation as a “non-human hotel.”

In Hotel Transylvania 2, Mavis and Jonathan are married and have a son Dennis (Asher Blinkoff).

Mavis thinks Dennis won’t be able to have a proper upbringing among the monsters and decides to leave for human civilisation.

Dracula and his friends try to bring out the monster in his half-human, half-vampire grandson in order to keep Mavis from leaving the hotel.

There is nothing spooky about Hotel Transylvania 2. In fact, the monsters in this movie are petrified at things that amuse human beings. They are probably the friendliest monsters you could ever hope to come across.

The wittiness that Hotel Transylvania 2 director Genndy Tartakovsky brings to the screen will sent both younger and older audience into a riot of laughter.

The punchlines are well timed to give the audience their money’s worth in this monster mash.

After some intense sevens battles at the BCI Stadium today, Hotel Transylvania 2 is where you can go for the best rest.

Daniel Craig’s Spectre premiered last night at the Empire Cinema and you can read my review of this James Bond movie next week.

I hear it’s one of the best Bond movies ever made – but we’ll wait and see.
