Movie Review by AJ
June 24th, 2006

I was a huge Scooby-Doo fan as a little kid, and I still like the cartoons for their nostalgic value. Not unsurprisingly, 2002's live-action Scooby-Doo movie failed to capture the charm of the cartoons. And while Scooby-Doo 2: Monters Unleashed is by no means a good movie, it is at least a great deal better than the original. The first transported the Scooby formula to some odd mix between a family movie, a stoner comedy, and a really bad Sci-Fi Channel original. And while I've no problem with the first two elements, the last completely destroyed any potential the movie had. Luckily, this plot hearkens back to the old Scooby-Doo ways: Most of their previous foes are back, only this time as actual ghosts. While it's simple--not to mention gimmicky--it allows for a whiff of that ol' nostalgia, not to mention some kooky castles. Of course, none of this can make the movie good. It is inherently stupid, and damned by its lack of any true talent behind the camera...though I must admit that parts of the script are amusing, especially when the characters realize that they're caricatures and how they react to that. And, hey, we get to see Sarah Michelle Gellar wiping the floor with the undead. That's always fun.
