Review & Giveaway: Scooby -Doo! Legend of the Phantosaur!

If you've ever been to my house and looked at the kids' DVD collection then there is one big section you can't miss. The Scooby Doo DVDs. Ever since last year my son has been obsessed with Scooby Doo. He was even Scooby Doo for Halloween. I try to get every DVD I see so I was super excited to review the latest DVD: Scooby Doo! Legend of the Phantosaur being released today September 6, 2011!
Synopsis: What begins as a relaxing spa getaway for Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Fred, Velma and Daphne, somehow takes a very strange turn when the gang uncovers a frightening Phantosaur, a ghostly dinosaur that’s come to life to protect hidden treasures buried in secret desert caves. The Phantosaur appears to be on a mission to keep a group of paleontologists from digging for fossils. The gang sets out to investigate the prehistoric haunting and in the process, uncover all sorts of colorful suspects including a free-wheeling motorcycle gang, greedy corporate investors and over-zealous scientists. Will it be prehistoric panic or will our teenage sleuths put all the pieces together and solve this strange mystery?

My Take: Sometimes it's hard to tell whether these movies are for me or for the kids. Now don't get me wrong. I'm not talking about the content of the movie. Well, actually I am! I enjoy the movies just as much as the kids. Whenever I see previews of upcoming releases of more Scooby Doo movies I just know I have to get them. They are a perfect length for road trips and with all the action in the show the kids stay entertained for the whole time. I love that even though it's a mystery and it's about a creature that could be considered scary (although my kids love dinosaurs) it's still light hearted and fun! Just the way I remember Scooby Doo cartoons growing up. They have also added more and better humor. My kids loved Shaggy not being able to stop screaming in the beginning of the movie. They thought it was so funny! Of course I had to hear them running all over the house for the rest of the week saying that they had seen a dinosaur!

And if that doesn't sway you to check this movie out then check out this clip: YIKES

Buy it: You can purchase Scooby Doo! Legend of the Phantosaur at most retailers for the price of $19.98 SRP and Blu-ray™ Combo for $24.98 SRP. (BTW- the blu ray is awesome!

  12. I've always liked Daphne. Not sure why. Maybe because she wears purple, my favorite color. Or maybe I've always been shallow and liked her because she's the prettiest, most girly character ... LOL
