REVIEW: Ruh Roh! ‘Scoob!’ (2020) is a Confusing Vehicle for a Hanna-Barbera Shared Universe

“‘Scoob!’ gets bogged down by the uncanny horror of mixing 50-year-old easter eggs with already outdated modern pop-culture references.“ From the initial trailers, I was skeptical of what Tony Cervone’s Scoob! was selling. Promising an epic new spin on the long-running story, the 2020 reboot boasts a star-studded cast—Zac Efron (Fred), Amanda Seyfried (Daphne), Gina…
