New in theaters June 2, 2017 "Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie" and "Wonder Woman"

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie
Starring (Voices): Kevin Hart, Jordan Peele, Thomas Middleditch and Ed Helms
Rated PG
In the film, two overly imaginative pranksters named George and Harold, hypnotize their principal into thinking he's a ridiculously enthusiastic, incredibly dimwitted superhero named 'Captain Underpants.'


“Captain Underpants” is a funny film but with a few restrictions. 

The movie moves at warp speed to keep the core audience's attention, (8 to 12 years old) but because of the film's fast-pacing there is virtually no continuity in the plot. And the film keeps taking unnecessary detours 


There are several story line changes during the film, but it's all at top speed giving the audience the feeling the film suffers from a cinematic form of ADHD.

“Captain Underpants: The First Epic Film” is a harmless film to take your kids to, but nothing in this animated movie ends up memorable.

It gets a C and is rated PG.

Wonder Woman

Starring: Gal Gadot and Chris Pine
Rated PG-13

Gal Gadot is Princess Diana, who rescues a WWII pilot when he crashes in the waters of the coast of her hidden and mythical Island.

The downed pilot, Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), tells her of the war that's being fought and Diana begins to realize her true purpose.

She leaves her island with Trevor to begin a battle against evil deeds.

“Wonder Woman” is a rip-roaring, action adventure and exactly what comic book films should be, exciting, fun, humorous and touching.

Gal Gadot is perfectly cast as the Amazon warrior. She is a fearsome fighter who never loses her femininity. It is a perfect balance she gracefully maintains. Also well-cast are the supporting characters including Chris Pine as the steadfast Steve Trevor. Pine delivers a terrific turn as Wonder Woman's guide into the world beyond her peaceful island.

“Wonder Woman” is a true summer blockbuster delivered with all the trimmings.

It gets an A and is rated PG-13.


If you haven't seen the 1975 TV Series with the original "Wonder Woman," Lynda Carter, it's at www.dvd.netflix.com right now!
