    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!

    Hotel Transylvania 3 summer vacation. Anybody who's watched the first two Hotel Transylvania 1 and 2 no the cast yet Adam Sandler's Dracula Selena Gomez as Mavis. Adam Sandberg as Jonathan and so on and so forth. This time instead of taking place in Hotel Transylvania they take a vacation as a giant family out on what looks like a representation of the Titanic to the Bermuda Triangle then the lost city of Atlantis. The only problem is this whole thing has been staged by Abraham Van Helsing Dracula's old nemesis, and his great-great-granddaughter Erika Van Helsing who wants a fallen in love with of course Dracula. If you have the first two this is a must-have it's very quirky but it is worth having in the collection whether you're an adult or whether your kid it's got its funny parts at Scott it's so-so Parts but overall it's a very well done movie.

    I loved the first two so I knew I'd like this one too, but I was unable to see it in 3D at the theater. I was OK with that because I knew that I'd get it in 3D when it came out on blu-ray. Unfortunately, like so many other 3D theatrical releases, only 2D is available on blu-ray, at least at first. I'm guessing that they will sell what they can on 2D blu-ray, see what the demand is for 3D and decide then whether or not to sell a 3D version, so if you want that, you'll have to buy it again in 3D. That's why I deducted 1 star.

    The steel book is great everything looks very nice, my son and I were very excited to watch this movie as we loved the past 2. But this was aweful. My son lost interest in it and I had as well. The movie lost its ability to stick with the excellent cast they had built to focus on Dracula finding a new love, breaking the rule of only one true zing. They forced the movie through to make him get married in a very horribly scripted boat ride. If you loved the other 2 skip this one it was not worth the purchase.

    Drac and the Gang go on vacation. The idea for a vacation is brought up by Dracs daughter. She thinks the reason he seems so down is because he needs one. In reality Drac is beginning to feel the effects of single-dom. While on a vacation cruise with the gang Drac meets a human. He ZINGS (monster love)at first sight. It turns out this Human woman has a connection to his past. I thoroughly enjoy these movies except for one thing. Adam Sandlers voice over. The accent he uses is very cheesy.

    The Translyvania Hotel Gets Wet

    This is a very cute 3rd addition to the Hotel Transylvania franchise with the whole cast and a few new monsters to love. There is a little back story in the beginning to introduce Drac's arch enemy, which also leads the plot so that the antagonist can enter, when Drac and company go on a cruise to escape the rigors of running a hotel. Isn't a cruise ship a hotel on water? But all is well, because family, friendship and love win out in the end. Very good sequel.

    I really enjoy the first two films, but this one isn’t that great. It has some good laughs and the animation is fun, but the story is the weakest. The other films five the main characters strong arcs and the develop throughout. This film focuses more on a villain character who I didn’t really care for. The main characters don’t get a lot to do in my opinion. Wasn’t a fan of the whole van Helsing storyline.

    We have always liked the HT series and this one is no different, it adds a few more characters including a love interest, a solid villain from the human world and a few new characters that are fun (fish and gremlins) it starts out all action, but after that the action comes in only a few instances in the rest of the film, the ending is more than a bit over the top, but good for 80's rockers

    Third edition of Hotel Transylvania another great adition to my collection. Movie is colorful and family fun to watch, it has some good humor into as well. The 4K colors really popped out on my OLED, I wished they had released a 3D version. My kids really enjoyed watching this movie I did as well. If you own 1 & 2 you definitely need to get the 3rd wont be disappointed.

    What's not to love about Hotel Translvania 3? The first two films were great fun, and #3 is no disappointment. Vampires on a vacation and a cruise ship???? Laughter and great fun continue to deliver delight. For me, there is only one disappointment, and it has nothing to do with the movie. Why wasn't it in 3D, like the first two? If I am wrong, please let me know.

    I was so happy to find out that Best Buy had Hotel Transylvania 2 for online order and in store pickup. It was nice and simple to sign in purchase the item and be able to pick it up in store, instead of having to wait for it in the mail. Not to mention now I have all 3 of the HT movies and had a binge sesh this afternoon watching them.

    Our very favorite monsters are back again and I am so very happy they are. The very best things are the characters and the voices behind the characters. They are truly a good portion of what makes these movies so special. The stories are terrific too but in tis one the bad buys are very obvious. Great fun for young and slightly older, meaning everyone.

    So the movie overall is ok, obviously bought for the kids and they enjoyed it as the HT saga continues (keeping Sandler and the boys employed). The packaging is top notch as is with most of the steel books. Best Buy seems to have the most steel book offers and as it’s my preferred packaging it keeps me going back. Prices can be though sonalways a trade off.

    I never expected the third movie to be as entertaining as the first one or even the second, BUT this movie kept me laughing from the very beginning both in the movie theater and especially on the blu ray. This is my first steelbook also, and I like how it was packaged and the full cast on the inside cover when fully opened. Blah, Blah, Bah

    Hotel Transylvania has the best trilogy of every computer animated film. Well written,perfect graphics unforgettable great characters and most of all, has a great message of love and respect for everyone no matter how you look or where you come from. Great for kids and adults without the need of obscenity to also make it very appealing to the adults.

    I purchased this move for the digital copy of the movie and the digital insert was for a completely different movie. It wasn’t even a kids movie. Then I tried to exchange for another copy hoping it had the right digital insert and I was told you cannot return because it’s open. Well yes it’s open, how would I know the wrong movie was inside.

    Count Dracula and company participate in a cruise for sea-loving monsters, unaware that their ship is being commandeered by the monster-hating Van Helsing family. This film, although not quite as good as the first two, was still a great movie with lots of great humor and also great messages for both kids and their parents too. Worth a look.

    Dull writing disables the many good points of this

    So many good things, including art, music, voice acting, sound. However, although the plot had promise, a production cannot rise above dull writing. Every now and then it is mildly amusing but good writing would have transformed this movie. Hotel Trans. 1 & 2 were better. Still, own this and the kids do like it.

    When It first came out I asked my baby boy if he wanted it. He stated emphatically NO! A week later a tell me rather sheepishly "Granpa,I want it now." Just to tease him with it I I asked him why when he had said no earlier.He said I just do. Luckily Best Buy had one last Blu Ray copy left. Best Buy to the rescue again. Thanks.

    Bought this for my 9 year old and actually had to repurchase the regular blu-ray case. I expected it to have the same picture as the other formats. He is really big on the cases and this was just too dull. This was my first time buying one and also thought there would be something extra inside. Great movie though!
