  • Hotel Transylvania 2012

    ★★★ Watched 19 Oct, 2014

    Even though it's computer animated, Hotel Transylvania has the look and feel of a 2D animated movie. The way the characters move and look takes me back to classic Looney Tune cartoons. This is all thanks to Genndy Tartakovsky, the great animator who made Samuari Jack and Dexter's Laboratory

    Movies and magic go hand in hand. The best magic trick is where you doesn't question how the trick was pulled off, but how awe inspired you are. The same goes for movies. Méliès was, after all, a magician turned filmmaker who used many of his tricks to create special effects for his films (You've all seen Hugo).

    Alfonso Cuaron is not a Director, but a Magician and Gravity pulls of a spectacular and emotional trick.
