Have you ever had a slow day? Maybe you had plans fall through, and it’s a weekend afternoon and you are just looking to kill some time. A lot of times, you end up throwing on something you’ve seen a dozen times before. Or maybe you feel bold. You pick a new movie on Netflix to try, or perhaps you find something on demand. Hey, why not roll the dice? I guess this is my longwinded way of explaining why I found myself watching Lego Scooby-Doo! Blowout Beach Bash.
If you aren’t familiar with this particular film, and I wasn’t myself until I was scrolling through what was on demand on my TV app of choice, Blowout Beach Bash is a 2017 direct-to-DVD Scooby-Doo movie. They’ve made a ton of these films over the year. I’ve reviewed a couple in the past. They’ve been alright. I liked the show Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated from a few years back quite a bit, but the movies don’t tend to be on quite that level.
The reason I decided to watch this one, though, was because it was being animated in Lego. You know, like The Lego Movie or that one surprisingly good Simpsons episode done with Lego. Honestly, my plan was to just turn it on, watch it for a couple minutes to see how all the characters and the world looked in Lego, and that would be that.
