Hotel Transylvania, directed by Genndy Tartakovsky
0 stars out of 3 possible ("D/F," Not Recommended)
Frankenweenie, directed by Tim Burton
** (2 stars out of 3 possible, "B," Recommended)
Audience: 5th graders and up
Hopefully this review will be timely enough for some families who are still headed out to those free summer movies at the park.
I was surprised by these movies. Initially I thought the black and white Tim Burton offering would be too bizarre while the colorful Hotel Transylvania with current star voice-overs would be both clever and funny.
Exactly the opposite occurred.
