Hotel Transylvania

(PG) ★☆☆☆☆

Dracula (voiced by Adam Sandler) operates a swanky resort for his fellow outcasts and monsters. His daughter Mavis (Selena Gomez) is turning 118, or 16 in human years. Despite his best efforts, Dracula cannot keep his daughter from the wider world forever. When a backpacker (Andy Samberg) stumbles upon the castle, he and Mavis take a shine to each other. Unfortunately, nothing in this movie is funny or remotely engaging. It’s really not worth any kid’s time.

ONE DOPE SHOW: When Marilyn Manson performed “Rock Is Dead” in ’99, he probably didn’t suspect that he’d someday be part of a package show that kind of proved his point. But Rock Vegas, a two-day festival of rawk at Mandalay Bay on Sept. 28-29, ($46-$90; two-day passes $89-$175), is a show of once-mighty headbangers whose thunder has been largely muted by current popular trends, from dubstep to downloading music without paying. Nevertheless, the thunder gods are coming: Godsmack, Staind, Adelitas Way, P.O.D.
