Rajeev Masand has interviewed literally everyone in Bollywood and now it’s time for Hollywood to open up in front of him..!!
His recent celebrity chit chat was with Selena Gomez.
In this interview with Rajeev Masand recorded in Cancun (Mexico), pop star and actress Selena Gomez talks about her voice-role as Count Dracula’s daughter Mavis in the Hotel Transylvania films.
The 23-year-old musical and film artiste also talked about starting early and reflected on celebrity culture. This interview was first aired on CNN-IBN yesterday.
This is what Rajeev felt about the movie:
Drac, now living happily with his daughter Mavis (Selena Gomez) and her human husband Jonathan (Andy Samberg), suddenly finds he has a pressing issue to deal with when it starts to become apparent that his baby grandson Dennis may have none of the vampirish tendencies that ‘Vampa’ was counting on. Convinced that the kid must be a late-fanger, Drac gathers his monster pals (Kevin James, Steve Buscemi, David Spade) and whisks Dennis off for a rites-of-passage road trip so he is encouraged to embrace his dark side.
Director Gendy Tartakovsky keeps the jokes coming fast and furious, while slipping in the odd message about respecting those that are different from us. There are some nicely staged set-pieces too, although a final-act action sequence involving fearsome monsters might scare the really little ones.
Sandler performs his voice duties competently, giving us a character that’s wildly over-the-top and relatable at once. Scenes in which Drac wrestles with technology are a real hoot, as is his version of the nursery rhyme Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
I’m going with three out of five for Hotel Transylvania 2. It’s familiar stuff, but also unmistakably entertaining.
Here’s the movie trailer for you:
