"Finding Dory" is a sweet, silly swim into familiar waters

Hollywood Vampires is less than the sum of its superstar parts
Describing the star-studded supergroup Hollywood Vampires sounds as close to fan fiction as the rock world has to offer: Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp (sure, why not) on one stage. The band is a bit more Frankenstein than vampire, however.
