The recent Monster High films are very underwhelming. Before I come off as a full on hater, I'll start with some things I did like about these two movies. The animation and models improved a lot. Especially the faces are really beautiful now, shout-out to Clawdeen, Lagoona and Ari. Then again, it gives off a very 'doll-y' vibe. I know these are basically dolls, but it's not really pleasing to watch. If anything it reminds me of stuff like Peter Lord's Chicken Run. Some of the voice actors got replaced and I have to admit I prefer Draculaura speaking in a lower voice. The music is still good too I really liked Tash' song, but 'Me and my Amigos' was also really nice. That's about it for the positive notes. Except for that I'm screaming over the fact they changed the canon. Monster High was about Frankie, a 16 days old girl, being the newbie at school and learning how hard it is to be accepted. As this is targeted at a young audience, the character didn't have a lot of character development already, but these films stripped them off of the little unique quirks they had. Frankie is not the new girl. She's also older than she original was and suddenly there's not such thing as the Monster world, but just Monsters hiding from humans in our world. The new canon focuses on bridging the gap between Monsters and humans, rather than Monsters and Monsters. And every time there's Monica making a mess and Frankie saving the day. In this canon Monster High isn't a school that exists for 100's of years, but it's built by freaking Draculaura and Frankie. I'm also disturbed by the amount of characters that got cut out, most notably Abbey and Ghoulia. They basically changed everything. From the way the school came to exist, to how everyone meets each other. In this movie Frankie meets Twyla after she (or one of her friends, can't remember) steps on her leg. In this universe Twyla isn't friends with Howleen. Another thing that truly disturbed me were the designs. I don't like how Frankie looks, but that's not the worst. The freaking haircuts in electrified were a sin. I must admit they look okayish as dolls, but wtf Frankie. Just wtf.
