After watching the complete Scooby Doo, Where are You! on DVD, I still needed a Scooby Doo fix. So I decided to pick up the Double Feature release of the live-action/CGi Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo: Monsters Unleashed. I had seen the first film on cable TV a few years back and I did not remember being impressed. Now maybe this is the Scooby high I am on talking, but I really enjoyed watching these films this time around. I especially enjoyed Matthew Lillard as Shaggy — he is dead on.
Laughs and scares aplenty are unleashed in these two popular live-action/computer-animation romps featuring Fred (Freddie Prinze Jr.), Daphne (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Shaggy (Matthew Lillard), Velma (Linda Cardellini) and that canine you-know-doo. The Mystery Inc. gang reunites in Scooby-Doo to find out what’s behind the jinky-jittery goings-on at Spooky Island, the Spring Break hot spot run by Emile Mondavarious (Rowan Atkinson). Scooby-Doo 2 Monsters Unleashed finds our heroes with their hands and paws full trying to find out why Coolsville is overrun with monsters the pals thought they’d defeated years earlier…but now the beastly beings are b-a-a-ack. Doo the fright thing, Scooby-Doo fans, and enjoy!
The discs have some decent extras and look great in HD. It will make a perfect addition to any Scooby fan’s collection (especially if you have Scooby itech you just can’t scratch).
