Doraemon: Nobita in the New Haunts of Evil ~Peko and the Five Explorers~ (Blu-ray release 2014-9-18) is yet another remake of an old Doraemon anime movie.  This movie follows the series formula strictly: Doraemon and its friends go on an exploration, put themselves in unnecessary dangers, meet a new race (a dog here), show off interesting gadgets, then help save the day.  I’d much rather have the creators think of a new storyline (however formulaic it may be) than to remake an old one.  There is no surprise to be found here, simply an average movie for Doraemon fans.  I like some of the background music, but certain segments of those seem to originate from other great works.
