Review: Scooby-Doo! Mask of the Blue Falcon

Thanks to Warner Bros. for the review copy of “Scooby Doo Mask of the Blue Falcon.” It’s a whole new original movie for Scooby Doo fans old and new for 2013.

Scooby Doo Mask of the Blue Falcon

The Mega Mondo Pop Cartoon-a-con is in sunny California for a mystery adventure.

There are Herculoids, frankenstein Jr. and Space Gosh with a megabucks movie premier starring Scooby-Doo and Shaggy’s all-time favourite super heroes, Blue Falcon and Dynomutt.

The movie also features Ultraviolet, the fabulous ability to download the films onto many tablets and mobile phones to take with us and amuse our kids. We are also allowed to share our move with up to 5 friends or family members.

The film is a PG as it features some scenes that may be unsuitable for very young children, buy a quick viewing by parents would make it easy to decide if it was suitable for yours or not. It’s 73 minutes of non-stop Scooby-Doo capers and includes some Bonus Vintage Cartoons as part of the package.

I don’t think anyone is too old for Scooby-Doo. Thanks again Warner Bros.

Warner Bros. Halloween Box for 2012, including Ultraviolet

Alas, our Halloween box for 2012 was a little late, so I couldn’t do a lovely thank you on the 31st October to Warner Bros.   It didn’t matter for the kids as they were still highly delighted with the box of goodies.  I’ve said it before, and I’ll keep saying it that kids never get too old for things like Scooby Doo and Ben 10, even if they pretend they are.

We have a birthday boy on Guy Fawkes night, so the boys are saving their bottles of bubbles for then.  Thank you Warner Bros. for remembering I have three boys and for sending three bottles of bubble maker.

The movies that my boys are going to enjoy for middlers birthday are:

  • Lego Hero Factory – Savage Planet
  • Tom and Jerry – Trick & Treats
  • Ben 10 – Destroy All Aliens
  • Big Top Scooby Doo – Original Movie

The boys have decided the cat mask was a little too girly, so it is being donated to our local special needs school, along with the Lego Hero Factory movie after my boys have watched it.

That means something for the girls, and something for the boys.  I’m sure they will absolutely love a wee gift.

Our box was missing the stickers so we couldn’t make any Halloween cards, but the boys didn’t know the stickers were meant to be there, so they’re still chuffed to bits with movies, sweets and bubbles.

A couple of the movies have Ultraviolet, which is new to me.  Ultraviolet says that the movie can be instantly streamed and downloaded with instant access to the movies on computers, tablets and smartphones.   It can also be shared with up to 5 friends or family members.  I signed up by using Facebook to join Flixter and then was able to download the movie.

Adding a movie to a new account was pretty simple, and it means that I can play it on my iPhone, iPad, Android devices, and store it in the cloud.    There are apps on iTunes and Android markets to get to our movies, so it seems a much easier way that actually taking up loads of space on our devices to keep them there.

Playback looks easy enough, so it seems a great way to keep movies to hand to watch over 3G or wifi.  I had no idea this even existed, and I can imagine I will look out for it in future.

Thank you again to Warner Bros.  Your packages always make for a lovely surprise arriving at our door.   If anyone is interested in buying any of the movies, they are all available on Amazon, at really good prices.

Warner Bros. Scooby Doo Spooky Games DVD Review

Thank you to Warner Bros. for the lovely box with a their brand spanking newly released Scooby Doo DVD.   I decided to hang on to mine until the paralympics were on, since I have a special needs child in the house.

Along with Scooby Doo Spooky Games, there were a couple of sacks, beanbags, some winner stickers and a whistle for the off.  It’s really helped him get into the spirit of it all.

I don’t think we’re ever too old for Scooby Doo, so the adventures at the World Invitational Games in their brand new episode was actually quite refreshing to enjoy with middler.

I’ll tell you that a statue comes to life and between bullfights and mountain climbing, the familiarity of the tales kept us interested.    There are the Scooby Doobies, the Yogi Yahooeys and the Really Rottens.    There’s even a visit from guest stars Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble.

With 4 episodes on the DVD, there’s a whopping 123 minutes of adventure to watch.


Thanks again Warner Bros.
