Hop (PG)

★★☆☆☆

This latest animation/live-action movie from the team behind Despicable Me is unashamedly middle-of-the-road. Russell Brand voices E.B., teenage rabbit heir to the mantle of Easter Bunny, currently held by his tradition-bound father (Hugh Laurie). But E.B.’s dream is to be a rock drummer, not run the Wonka-esque candy factory manned by worker chicks deep below Easter Island—you got it, with the statues—so the Easter Bunny can dispense treat-filled baskets to children everywhere once a year. Decent effort, but not anyone’s best.

Movie Review

Sucker Punch (PG-13)

Only the rarest of movies is given a title that perfectly encapsulates the experience of watching it, but sitting through Sucker Punch, a ludicrous fantasy from 300 director Zack Snyder involving underage prostitutes fighting droids and dragons, really is like being attacked and beaten without any means of defending yourself. While you’re not busy looking for the nearest exit, you can ruminate on how decent actors such as Carla Gugino, Abbie Cornish and Jon Hamm wound up in this mess.
