Scoob! Review

Hi everyone. This review was requested by friend and supporter Alan Sebastian. He wanted me to review the movie Scoob, and even donated money to me so I could rent it and give it a watch. So, I gotta be honest, I am only a casual fan of Scooby Doo. I've only seen a few episodes of the TV shows and like one or two of the movies. From what I can tell, it's pretty formulaic. In each episode, mystery inc sets out to solve a mystery about a supernatural creature, some chase scenes ensue, and then they find out that the "monster" was really a person in disguise. All there is to it. So, when I heard about the newest iteration of Scooby doo, simple titled  Scoob, I was just like eh, that's cool. This is gonna exist. I wasn't too stoked to see it, but when I was requested to watch this movie, I of course gave it a watch. and now that I have seen it, what did I think?

Well, I'll be honest, I was kind of pleasantly surprised. Despite not being a big fan of Scooby Doo, I liked this film a lot. However, if you are expected the old traditional mysterious Scooby Doo, you will be really disappointed. This movie was more like an action and superheroes kind of movie. I'm guessing that since superheroes are really popular with the kids, they really wanted to make that kind of movie. But as a movie, I thought it was a pretty decent movie on its own merits. It had a really good message about how best friends should always stick together and never leave each other. So, with all that said, is it worth paying $20 to rent or $25 to buy? Ehh, not right now I would say. I would wait until it's cheaper to rent or until it hits streaming service, that is, unless you're a hardcore fan of Scooby Doo that must watch everything from Scooby Doo. So at the end of the day, it's a decent family film and it's pretty harmless. I would recommend watching it when it comes to streaming services or becomes cheaper in price. God bless!
