2-in-1 Movie Review - DRIVE-IN EDITION: Hotel Transylvania 3 & Incredibles 2

This is a special post! For the first time, I went to the drive-in! I enjoyed it immensely. I want to go again! I went with two friends and my friend's daughter! So fun.

Film Title:
Hotel Transylvania 3 Summer Vacation
Length: 1 hr and 37 mins 
Released: 2018
Genre:  Comedy, Family Movie
Rating: PG
Where I Got It: Drive-In


Count Dracula and company participate in a cruise for sea-loving monsters, unaware that their boat is being commandeered by the monster-hating Van Helsing family.


I believe I watched the first movie, but I can’t remember now. Good thing this movie did well as a standalone. My friend just gave me a quick rundown before this started, so I was good to go. 

It was a cute film. I loved the whole concept of a vaca for this family and friends. Even monsters need to get away. 

I was meh about the whole love story. Maybe it was the fact that it was so predictable. I called it right away. It was cute watching her fall for him. 

Overall, this was just cute. You can watch this without watching the first couple of movies. I should backtrack and rewatch. Eh. I’ll give this 3 stars. 

Film Title: Incredibles 2
Length: 1 hr and 58 mins 
Released: 2018
Genre:  Comedy, Family Movie, Action/Adventure
Rating: PG
Where I Got It: Drive-In


Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible) is left to care for the kids while Helen (Elastigirl) is out saving the world.


Took WAY too long to get this film. I can barely remember the first one. I’m glad they did a quick recap at the beginning there or I would’ve been pretty lost. 

It was fun to watch this family and see the baby’s powers come into play. My goodness that baby is funny! I loved the scene with the raccoon. I’m still chuckling even just thinking of it. 
The story, again, was pretty predictable. I pinpointed the baddie right away. Clever, but it was still easy to point out as an adult. Maybe the kiddies wouldn’t catch it. 

I felt so bad for the Dad. I mean…it was good he got to reconnect with the kids, but it really was unfair that they left him and the kids behind. The mom is more logical, but I wanted to see more of his power and the kid’s power. I’m glad we got the scene at the ending where everyone was powering it up, but I felt like they deserved more airtime.

The art was fun like the old one. I don’t get the proportions of the bodies though. They seem very unbalanced, but other than that I liked it a lot. 

Overall, I did like it. A few laughs but it was a hair underwhelming. I’ll give it 3 stars.
