Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

Wouldn’t they have announced an extended cut of this movie by now, if they planned on releasing one?

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

The fact that it doesn’t seem like any other outlets have picked up on this story only serves to further convince me that this is just another example of WGTC talking out of their ass.

Re: It's such a shame how Uub was handled, he could have been the first strong black DB hero

I don’t understand where people get this idea that Oob is supposed to be black. Everything about him would suggest that he’s meant to be the Dragon Ball equivalent of a South Asian.

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

But at what point do original storylines turn Dragon Ball into something else entirely? Won't the fan base be turned off by that kind of thing? I think there's a risk that audiences will respond poorly to seeing their favorite plots tossed aside in favor of something unrelated. It's also messing wi...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

I can see why people want Goku to be Asian since he is a gag version of Sun Wukong and Journey to the West is a story from China. With Vegeta, and Nappa, I can see a white person or a different person of color playing them. Planet Vegeta is probably diverse much like Earth with their culture. Even ...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

It bugs me when they chop books in half when they adapt them. That trend seemed to die with the Divergent series. Good. It bugs me going to the theater to see half a story. It's not like TV. Actually, scratch that. I completely forgot that they split Stephen King’s It into two separate movies. Stil...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

I think barring a few revisions, the Piccolo Daimaou and Saiyan arcs are the easiest to adapt into a movie. The Cell Saga? Good God, that would be a nightmare. You'd have to rewrite the entire arc I can’t even imagine what direction they would’ve gone in if DBE actually managed to be the first in a...

I think funrush is talking about CM from a purely visual approach.
If you want to talk about visuals, that should be a no-brainer. There’s basically nothing that can’t be translated into live action at this point.

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

Disney's already proven a decent DBZ movie is possible, thanks to the final act of Captain Marvel. Captain Marvel is basically the MCU's Goku. She's zipping around space glowing like a Super Saiyan, shooting ki blasts and blowing up ships. If the sequel to her film is just chock full of DB-esque fi...

Does Dragon Ball Minus seem unlike Toriyama to anyone else?

I know that Minus is old news, but this is something that only gets more and more confusing to me as time goes on. Dragon Ball Minus does not feel like it was written by Akira Toriyama. It’s far too sentimental and straight-faced for something written by him. That’s not to say that the original mang...

Re: What specifically was wrong with Vic Mignogna’s take on Broly?

I hate the inserted music. It feels so dropped in it's painful to me. There's only maybe one or two instances where I actually like the Dub music better. In the Trunks special when Trunks goes SSJ and when the group goes SSJ in front of Broly . The only reason I like them at all is because it's ins...

Re: What specifically was wrong with Vic Mignogna’s take on Broly?

As for the scene in question I never cared for the insertion of rock music in the movies, honestly I always thought that was a weird choice even as a kid. The falconer score is already comprised of psuedo-elctro rock music, which at the time I was fine with at the time and i still have a bit of a s...

Re: Would Level Sets be more sucessfull if Funimation wait more?

Rewatching videos like this (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=mWGVrxP_KV0) really hammers home how much it sucks that the levels were discontinued. The video quality on those things were amazing. If it hadn’t been for the relatively low episode count per set, they could’ve been pretty damn successful.

Re: What specifically was wrong with Vic Mignogna’s take on Broly?

Yeah I think the rock music was a great choice that really enhanced the overall product in a way that distinguished the movies from the tv series. It's a step up from the usual Faulconer tracks as it should be when going from ordinary tv episodes to features. It made perfect sense to me. Eh that’s ...

Re: What specifically was wrong with Vic Mignogna’s take on Broly?

As far as FUNimation replacement scores are concerned, the decision to use rock music for Movies 4, 5, 8, and (to a lesser degree) 10, as well as the Bardock and Trunks specials, was certainly a fascinatingly strange choice. It always struck me as weird that a dingy little company (at the time) like...

Re: Rumor: Disney Developing New Live-Action Dragon Ball Movie With Asian Cast

Dragon Ball certainly isn’t popular only in Japan, that much is certain. Globally speaking, it’s probably the most mainstream a manga/anime can get (not counting Pokémon, which is a video game franchise first). Still, being popular doesn’t mean that people are going to turn up in droves to see a liv...

It is weird that Toei hasn’t announced the return of Super yet. I guess it’s possible that they’re waiting on Toriyama to come up with the stories, but they didn’t exactly wait when they green lit Super in the first place, so I have a bit of trouble imagining that they would be patiently waiting rig...

If they aren't investing anything in DB, it's not because they think their schedule is too packed. It's because they don't think there's money to be made. If it's just packed, you move things around. That was exactly what my point was. Disney most likely doesn’t think there’s money to be made from ...
