Review: “Scoob!”

Post by Jasmine »

Yesterday I watched “Scoob!”, which went straight to digital release due to the coronavirus pandemic. Interestingly, it costs $25 to purchase the movie, which is about $5 more than most digital releases. I guess that helps the movie companies recoup their losses.

Anyway, “Scoob!” Is a delightful and fun family film that all fans of the “Scooby Doo” cartoons will enjoy. It even includes the origin of how the gang got together, which I thought was pretty cool. The real star of the movie is the cgi animation, which is flat-out gorgeous. Everything is colorful and vibrant, with faithful renderings of Scooby and his friends.

The theme of the movie is “friendship.” The story primarily focuses on Scooby and Shaggy. While Fred is the muscle of the group, and Velma is the brains, and Daphne is the empath - what do the lovable but cowardly Shaggy and Scooby bring?

My only gripe? For me, it strays too far from the cartoon’s basic themes of mystery and scary fun. It’s very sci-fi in nature, as the story prominently also features the Blue Falcon, Dick Dastardly and other Hanna Barbara characters. It’s still fun and entertaining, but I much prefer an old-fashioned story with the gang going up against spooky ghosts and monsters.

I do recommend “Scoob!” for anyone who loves the “Scooby Doo” franchise or quality animation. **** out of five stars!

Twenty-five bucks for a movie that's a hundred percent computer-generated! That seems awfully steep!

It’s a little pricey, but they have to do what they can since they won’t be able to show it in theaters. And animated films aren’t cheap to make.

Wife and kid watched it this morning. Your review is pretty spot on. Wife and I laughed harder at some of the things than the kid. I don't think he got the jokes about masks.
Galatians 5:13-14 You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. The entire law is summed up in a single command: "Love your neighbor as yourself."
