Oh, don't worry, the talk pup isn't dead, but his latest film, called "Scoob! , "is utterly lifeless.
I thought that the 2002 live-action film Freddie Prinze Jr. would never be topped in its badness, but that one at least understood the classic "Doo" formula: Mystery Inc. arrives at the haunted locale, the gang investigates humorously, the ghost is revealed to be a creepy area, "And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn't for you to interfere with children! "Exclusive. Definitely perfect.
"Scoob!" he said. "The CGI reboot offers little in the way of ghosts, waswolves, vampires, swamp creatures or other monsters. Or even mysteries. It is a subpar adventure flick where a bad guy tries to take over the world, with a supernatural sprinkle.
Exactly two spectators are in here. One we meet during a Halloween night twee prologue, in which Shaggy, Scooby, Fred, Daphne and Velma first meet as kids. That costume for Little Velma is Ruth Bader Ginsburg sets the self-conscious tone for the rest. After a ghoul in a haunted house is thwarted by the group we are leaping to the present day.
Grown-up Mystery Inc. is enlisted by fellow Hanna-Barberian Blue Falcon (Mark Wahlberg) to help prevent Dick Dastardly (Jason Isaacs) from unleashing Hades' dog Cerberus around the world.
Zac Efron (Fred), Gina Rodriguez (Velma), Amanda Seyfried (Daphne), Will Forte (Shaggy) and Frank Welker (the original Fred, now Scooby) voice the adult versions of the core gang, quite indifferently. You miss the overblown energy of the actors in the 2D version.
I especially yearned for the bone-dry sense of humor of the old cartoon. The curiously timed fog, remember? Or when comedian Jonathan Winters flipped a coin to decide who's going first into the haunted house, only to realise it was Canadian currency and didn't count? For some of the jokes, as kid-aimed as this debacle is, are pretty lowbrow.
That exchange occurs when Dastardly meets Scooby: "My friends call me Dick," he says. "And Rick? "" Scooby asks. "My name is Dick! Dick Dick Dick Dick Dick! "Nothing lodges a word like repeating it five times in an impressive young mind.
By the way, the CGI is looking terribly cheap in a market that includes boundary-breakers like Pixar and DreamWorks. Hanna-Barbera was never the powerhouse for animation that Disney and Warner Bros. had back in the day, but it overcompensated with personality. "Scoob!" by Warner Animation Group! "Does not have any of that.
