As the air gets crisp and autumn rolls in, things get a little spookier in Los Angeles. Finding fun fall things to do it a city that has everything is easy, however accepting an invitation to anything in L.A. means strategic planning and to get there on time takes some focused execution, so one must to be choosy when it comes to invites.
When Smart and Final sent me an invitation to be one of the first people to see the new movie, Hotel Transylvania, even during Emmys Week, I accepted.
You heard it right; I cut short my Emmy’s Gifting Suites tour to race off to The AMC in Century City in the middle of rush hour, just to see this sweet movie. I rarely go to movies, let alone animations, but for some reason I couldn’t resist.
My guest and I arrived at the theatre about 30 minutes early to get the usual essentials, some yummy snacks and a frosty bevie, and on our way up to the movie we surprisingly received some super-stylish 3D glasses. Being the L.A. diva I am, looking good even in the dark is important, so I was happy that these 3D glasses weren’t the typical cardboard version.
But I have to say, I had no clue Hotel Transylvania was in 3D. I love anything in 3D so by now I am thinking, “this is already fun”. Then we walked into the theatre which was packed full of Moms, Dads, and kids, all with their movie essentials as well.
Grabbing two seats close to the front, we get prepared for the show. Looking around, here we are, all of us with our 3D glasses in place, ready for Hotel Transylvania to begin.
The next 90 minutes was a blast, even for the adults in the theatre. My guest and I were shocked at how the kids were completely entranced by the story, the songs, and the monsters, monsters, monsters! Hotel Transylvania was a perfect little story about a young boy and a girl exploring a new world. Entertaining and simple, appropriate for all ages.
And being from Los Angeles, you know we stayed for the credits. Again we were amazed at how many big Hollywood actors joined in to create this film. A few familiar voices were Dracula (Adam Sandler), Mavis (Selena Gomez), Frankenstein (Kevin James), Eunice (Fran Drescher), Murray the Mummy (Cee Lo Green), and the Werewolves (Steve Buscemi and Molly Shannon).
The Hotel Transylvania movie was light, fun, festive, and sweet. My guest and I both agreed it’s a perfect Halloween movie for kids and grown ups that will get everyone in the mood for the fun things this season brings.
