Slow & didn’t pick up until halfway,one time watch
Owned for 8 months when reviewed.
4k is the best on an OLED panel.
Dolby Atmos track was weak (level and effect) even on a 11.2 (7.2.4) but picked up during the party scene in a good way!
It was a led down compare to the first two. It lost its fun factor and the plot changed. Honestly, I though it was going to be about her daughter getting married and having kids that would’ve been a better route than the zing idea & the boat vacation.
Over priced & not worth the 4k purchase with the a weak Atmos mix.
Still a good movie even after the 2nd but not as good as the first but still for any child who liked the first 2 they will definitely like the 3rd and the good thing for the parents is it has a really good sound track so if they watch it over and over again it will be pleasant to the ears.
I actually sort rent Hotel Transylvania 3 in the theaters with my girls youngest boy. Didn't really think a lot about it but it is actually a very good movie especially with all the talent that hasn't. Yeah. Adam Sandler, Mel Brooks, Selena Gomez, a bunch of other people. The reason I got this on a whim is it's been more to 1499 the one day I went in checking out movies they mistakenly marked it at $8.99. so I bought it especially for a steelbook that's extremely cheap it was Best Buy's mistake and my game.

Continued fun, blah blah blah
Hotel Transylvania 3 proves there's still plenty of bite left in the series, even if it feels just a touch long in the tooth.
Perhaps the ratio of LOL jokes to eye-rollers aren't quite as favorable as in the previous two installments, but there's plenty of blood left to be drawn on, where you'll realize it may be a touch short of the standard it's set for itself, but still rises above 75% of the family movies produced currently.
It entertained our family, with our son a bit of a HT snob- he's adored the first two films, really enjoyed this one (especially "Sprinkles," the newest member of the Dracula family, Denisovich's pet dog,) but watched all of one episode of the Netflix series cartoon and immediately pronounced it, "NOT MY Hotel Transylvania".
What I respect most about the Hotel Transylvania series, above say, Cars, (which my son also adores,) is that it isn't tied intrinsically to merchandising. New characters don't feel pressed into service as a new toy for the Disney overlords. Characters are allowed to exist much more naturally in the story- while I'm lucky enough that my son doesn't often feel a need to want the newest Car character, (in fact, i'm more likely to hunt it down as a gift for him if he seems to enjoy the character in question,) it's refreshing to know that watching a family movie won't be tied to neverending commercials to sell the newest tied in toy releases that pull at a child's desires.
HT is a wonderful series, and it may have lost a quarter step here in the 3rd story, it's still a fun film that will keep the kids and adults entertained. Even if a Hotel Transylvania 4 doesn't return to 5 star territory, if it manages to match the third film, it will remain a welcome, fun, and funny series for the entire family to enjoy!

Continues to be a cute, down to earth story that both children and adults love
