Goofs

When the teens are serving their detention in the library and the weather storm begins, at one point Velma says "unusual 'climactic' anomaly" referring to the impending weather storm. In fact Velma should have said "unusual 'climatic' anomaly. Her use of the adjective is in error as "climactic" refers to the word "climax" whereas "climatic" would be the adjective to use when referring to "climate." See more »

Wow, Amazing compared to others
15 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I grew up watching scooby doo I watched every single episode that I can get my hands on to, hell I got 7 DVD volumes as birthday presents, X-mas presents, and easter. As a 7 year old I knew ever episode by heart then I moved onto watching Pup Named Scooby what a good show it was I use to play sick just to watch it then I heard about the real time movies the first one I loved it even though it's cheesy that's what Scooby Doo was based on honestly. The second one had nothing really special about it that gave it that Scooby feeling. Then I watched the animated movies I felt they where all that was really needed to keep it alive I was sad when they stopped then I heard about this. What can I say I knew it was a TV and there wasn't going to be top class actors but something urged me to watch it something like a mystery. I watched it just a while go I fell in love with it they could have had room for improvements but you know I soon realised it's supposed to have that cheesy feeling. I was particularly impressed with how Shaggy acted and Velma I thought they're going to mess up on them but they did good specially towards the end. The cgi really out-stood me I thought that this Scooby was going to look to CGI affected but it was the perfect mixture not to much nor to less. You know I liked how everyone got angry that they're throwing away some of the key elements like the blonde affect but now adays who has blonde hair like that in high school? I know damn well no one does at my school it's a modern day version not supposed to be in the 60's. I really liked the story they built a good enough background story for me and they developed the plot just like any classic SD cartoon. It might just be the perfect revival in a way. I hope that these actors get respect and more chances on CN's network if they have another movie.
