I just picked up my copy of the movie today... it was a good movie, but not overly amazing like I was hoping for.
The KISS superpowers and Crimson Witch were really cool!
The songs they picked were all good...although did anyone else think that the "Shout it Out Loud" song sounded a bit off from the original version? "Detroit Rock City" fit very well into the movie! I'd say "Rock and Roll All Nite," "Shout it Out Loud" and "I Was Made for Lovin' You" were my favorites.
The new song "Don't Touch My Ascot" really sucked! I was disappointed that WB hyped the new song so much, and then gave us a song that they probably took like 5 minutes to make. I was hoping that KISS would cover one of the classic Where Are You songs!
I loved the reference to Quest Laboratories! The reference to the Phantom of Vazquez Castle was great too!
The Daphne-Fred jealousy got annoying because they've overdone it already in the other movies. Maybe this was just me overthinking this but I thought 16-year old Daphne being in love with the 63-year old Starchild was kinda gross.
It also didn't feel very much like a "Halloween movie" as WB had advertised it.
Overall, a good movie but not amazing. 7/10

Andy Thom, who is one of the people working on the new show, posted some pics of the background art for the Be Cool Scooby-Doo Christmas Special, which apparently will air this Winter.
Here they are:
Andy Thom also posted the plot summary of the episode on Facebook!
The gang spends Christmas in the original Christmas City - Bethlehem- where the Moravian Star plays a key part in the mystery that surrounds the town.
The episode will be delivered in late November to Boomerang.
In the episode "Grim Judgment," in the yearbook, one of the students is Scott Jeralds, who is one of the people that works on the Scooby-Doo comics.

After Scooby’s not-so-monthly bath spoils Daphne’s sacred beauty regimen, she enlists Velma for a day at the spa! But lounging around in towels is only fun until the towels turn on you. And when there’s a mummy in your mineral water, there’s only one thing to Doo—lay a spa-sized trap for that toweled troublemaker, because nobody gets in the way of a good exfoliating scrub!
The name "Mystery Incorporated" was never actually used to refer to the gang in any Scooby films and TV shows until Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed. However, the first use of the name comes from a song in Scooby-Doo and the Snowman Mystery, a vinyl record from 1973.
Kate Micucci tweeted today that she will be the new Velma in Be Cool Scooby-Doo.
However, Mindy Cohn will still be voicing Velma in the current DTVs.
I'm personally really excited about the new voice of Velma and the new show. Although, I still have to get used to the animation! What are your thoughts on this? Let me know in the comments section.
This morning, I happen to stumble upon these old storyboards and model sheets that were used by the writers of the New Scooby-Doo Movies.
These first ones were rough drafts of the gang in the first episode, "Ghastly Ghost Town."
This is a background picture used in "Ghastly Ghost Town." Apparently, all other background pictures were scrapped and not saved, this is the only one remaining!
These next ones are my favorites, this is actually the storyboard outline that was used during the production of "Ghastly Ghost Town!"
This is the storyboard for episode 2. The storyboard reveals that "The Dynamic Scooby-Doo Affair" is actually the wrong title, the correct title is "The Dynamic Scooby Duo Affair."
This is a production storyboard for "Guess Who's Knott Coming to Dinner."
Also, note that if you look closely at the storyboard, you can view the production codes for the episodes. Ghastly Ghost Town is 61-1, Guess Who's Knott is 61-2 and Dynamic is 61-4. This actually shows that Guess Who's Knott should be episode 2, and Dynamic should have been episode 4 (presumably the network aired them out of order).
These are more model sheets from "Ghastly Ghost Town" which shows the original rough draft drawings of the Three Stooges. The drawing is dated June 16, 1972.
Next is the original drawing of Joker and Penguin from "The Dynamic Scooby Duo Affair".
This is the last bunch of model sheets from "Guess Who's Knott Coming to Dinner". These are my favorites, I think these are especially cool. Have a look:
This was apparently the Ghost of Captain Moody before he was airbrushed as we see in the episode today.
Where are Shaggy's eyes and mouth?
Well, that's the end of the pictures. This was really cool to find and go through!
I usually wouldn't cover this type of news and I'm sure most other Scooby sites won't cover this, but since Hayley was in the third and fourth live action movies as Velma, I thought this was worth sharing.
Hayley has released a new single entitled "Girls Like Girls" from her recent EP, This Side of Paradise, which appears to be an overnight sensation. "Girls Like Girls" has already reached 1 million views on YouTube in only a few weeks of being online, and the song has already climbed to #135 on the iTunes pop charts (and it's numbers are increasing every day).
I actually had no knowledge of the song until I began following Hayley on Twitter a few weeks ago, and I saw her tweet about the new video. I thought I'd give it a shot and I found the video on YouTube. I was very pleasantly surprised, the song was great and I thought it had an amazing message behind it.
The song is about a lesbian couple, and the message behind the video/song is "love who you want to love, you don't have to care about what others think." Only a few days after the video was released, coincidentally, same-sex marriage was legalized throughout the U.S.. I could easily see the song being a top ten hit if things continue as they are.
I wish Hayley the best of luck with her song and new music career!
