Oh no, here we go again. It is another Tuesday and that means new blu-rays. There are a few movies coming out this week.  The Mummy is coming out and I’ve seen it but I am definitely not picking that. I am picking Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie.

George Beard and Harold Hutchins are two overly imaginative pranksters who spend hours in a treehouse creating comic books. When their mean principal threatens to separate them into different classes, the mischievous boys accidentally hypnotize him into thinking that he’s a ridiculously enthusiastic, incredibly dimwitted superhero named Captain Underpants. – 20th Century Fox

I may be somewhat biased picking this film but I don’t care cause I’m going to do it. I am not positive but I’m pretty sure the Captain Underpants series of books may have been some of the first books I’ve ever read. As a nerd I love books and comic books and Captain Underpants is probably the reason I do. My mother may not have originally approved of the material but she loved to see me read. How could a 6 year old resist a super hero that fights talking toilets in his underwear, exactly I couldn’t resist. When I heard the news of the movie I was beyond excited especially with the cast, Kevin Hart, Thomas Middleditch and Ed Helms play the main three characters of George, Harold and Captain Underpants but the rest of the cast looks great too. Unfortunately I missed this one in theaters. I really wanted to see it but I figured it would look weird for a 23 year old to go see this movie by himself so I decided to wait for the blu-ray and it is finally here.
