    I feel like if they were going to do another scooby-doo movie they should get Danny from game grumps. I always got a kind of “shaggy” the character vibe from him. And not in a weird way.


    I hate this but I loved the first two scooby doo movies

    I prefer the first Scooby-doo movie. Yeah, it wasn't perfect but the actors who plays Shaggy and the others were good and the music was nice. Also, the mystery was surprising and the monsters were kinda cool. Mary-jane was totally useless and Scrappy was super annoying though, can't deny it! In this one, the characters are pale copies of themselves. Remove all the charm from the ones in the first movie and you got theses peoples, they are bad except for Shaggy who is pretty funny ^^
    About Scooby, i prefer his old design even if it didn't look exactly like in the comics or the tv show. This new design is freaking scary O-O Oh and he isn't hilarious or interresting either. At least, the old Scooby know how to fight and was always there for his friends. He was captured by Mister Bean but manage to solve the mystery with the others. Here, he is a victim like Peach from Mario; completely pointless.
    Overall, this movie is average; not excellent, not terrible. It's alright if you don't agree with me, we have differents opinions and i respect yours.

    So after the last movie when they tackled a villain with the voice of Ratrap/Dinobot/Silverbolt we get a prequel where they’re sentence to detention by Optimus Primal? Lol what’s next, they get mugged by Cheetor? Car jacked by Megatron? Kidnapped by Rhinox?

  • TheNerdyCheerleader

    I'm seeing some comments on here saying that the Mystery Inc. show is really good and that kinda stuff, but personally as a longtime fan (literally since the day I was born in 2004) but I personally don't like it much at all.I understand the appeal it's definitely darker and has some complexity but I feel it's not right for the series. I remember it being fun and goofy but just enough seriousness to keep the mystery interesting. It shaped my childhood and to see it changed in a huge way is really sad to me. If you like it than by all means, watch it, enjoy it and don't let my opinion make you think otherwise but personally I don't like it and the changes it made. Another thing I'm seeing is people talking about the sequel to this movie and I can say confidently... I HATE IT SO MUCH! I don't remember much about it but boy the things I do remember I DESPISE. The fact that they made MY FAVOURITE CHARACTER THE VILLAIN PISSES ME OFF SO MUCH! I know she was possessed or whatever but still, as a little kid who loved Velma so freaking much , seeing her villainised was Earth shattering for my tiny brain. And the way they un-possesed her was super dumb as well, I was happy shaggy and Velma kinda ended up together but I still couldn't forgive the other things from this movie and the Lake Monster one (especially the Lake Monster) . Fred having dark hair and being all jocky also severely pissed me off, and again even as a little kid I though Scooby looked HORRENDOUS. I want to be apart of the film industry (specifically model making or texturing in animation) so I'm way too critical on movies I watch but yeah, I hated these movies so much for ruining one of my favourite franchises of all time even to this day, and making it into a putrid movie. Btw I actually really like the other two live action Scooby-Doo movies but that might be nostalgia and good memories talking, but I feel they captured the original spirit and character at least a little better than these abominations did, and the CGI for Scoob looks half decent. Thanks for reading my long rant about this Stuff 😊💖💜🌈💕✨🤩💎👍🏻
