Re: I Prefer the Dragon Ball Super Trilogy to Nolan’s

People can prefer what they want over anything but the comparison just doesn't work or make sense. Comparing big budget blockbusters to DB is like comparing an Apple to a Pizza. You can prefer the Apple but it's so different from the Pizza that there's not even a reason to compare them or prefer on...

Re: I Prefer the Dragon Ball Super Trilogy to Nolan’s

Actually, it's still an opinion. What you're calling "facts" and "objective" are only such because they play into your idea of objectivity and quality -- that is to say, there is no universal standard for what is "objectively" good or bad, you're just substituting your standards because you can't f...

Re: I Prefer the Dragon Ball Super Trilogy to Nolan’s

It kinda works as a trilogy. There are some common tropes. The second film was not as great the first, and the third took us back and revealed something that was supposed to somehow be true all along (namely that there are at least 5 more Saiyans who survived). I think Broly is a good follow up to ...

Re: I Prefer the Dragon Ball Super Trilogy to Nolan’s

If I may, my opinion is quite a fallible thing. In all humility, it is only my opinion, and experientially so. Therefore, I definitely don’t want to impose it on any of you. It is subjective on the level that while it is true for me, it couldn’t be true for everyone else. I think the reason I made t...

Re: I Prefer the Dragon Ball Super Trilogy to Nolan’s

To be sure, I speak these criticisms as a Nolan trilogy fan. It’s just that the Broly film cemented these three films as being capable of payoff worth my salt. The Nolan trilogy kind of solicited potential the MCU picked up on, and WB didn’t. The Nolan trilogy destroyed WB’s DCEU before it arrived. ...

Re: I Prefer the Dragon Ball Super Trilogy to Nolan’s

The first two movies in retrospect have the flaws any Dragon Ball film first made after years of hiatus, whether you either gate-keepingly reviewed using Z or retro-actively reviewed using Super. However, that there is no solid absolute truth as to whether they are Z or Super allows their sagas to b...

Re: Unpopular DB opinions

I prefer GT Vegeta to DB Super Vegeta. I don't think it's unpopular at all if we talk about Vegeta's personality and development. Also, many prefer GT's design since it was fresh (except mustache) and he was still muscled in place of skinny DBS Vegeta wearing armor from Cell saga 24/7. DBS Vegeta h...

Re: As A FUNi Dub Fan, Has Z Kai Replaced Z for you?

Re: Dragon Ball Super 90's Style

Dragon Ball Super is the helpful deconstruction to Z, whereby it takes place before the ending of the original manga where Goku and Uub fight. By definition, it is therefore DBZ on a penultimate, if supplementary level. I think to say “If it were made in the nineties” (while respecting your opinion...

Re: Vic Mignogna

There were the two paths of Vic Mignogna as a voice actor, in my opinion. I saw him as Broly before I saw him as Ed, and obviously I preferred the former. Looking back at how I actually viewed Vic’s voice acting as Ed, I believe it was a competent voice acting performance that did better with Aaron ...

I feel like having seen this if Broly masters a’la Kale his Berserker form, he might have a chance against Jiren. I say that as someone whose favorite character is Broly; I don’t think he’s as strong as Jiren, yet. Well, keep in mind that Broly hasn't had anyone to train with other than Paragus. Wh...

Re: I Prefer the Dragon Ball Super Trilogy to Nolan’s

The three movies are definitely the better Dragonball movies of the catalogue. However, better than the Nolan Batman films? No sir. Those are masterpieces. I will say that Broly as a third film is a far better third entry than Dark Knight Rises You see, I can completely understand this opinion. I w...

Re: Anime adaptation of the Broly movie: is it necessary?

Regarding previous retellings, I would say absolutely not. Movie 14 and Movie 15 were poorly retold and the result in general was not good at all, so it is best not to waste time retelling something that doesn't need a retelling and make the same mistakes. That said though, depending on the executi...

Re: I Prefer the Dragon Ball Super Trilogy to Nolan’s

Personally, I wouldn't consider Battle of Gods, Resurrection F and Broly a trilogy for several reasons: 1. Two are Dragon Ball Z movies and the last is a Dragon Ball Super movie, so as a trilogy they don't work when it comes to branding as they are, by definition marketing different series in the f...

Re: I Prefer the Dragon Ball Super Trilogy to Nolan’s

Are these two things really comparable? If they’re not comparable on the level of their difference in medium, at least I’m going to say that after watching Broly I ended up preferring these three films to the Dark Knight Trilogy. I know, it has roots in potential bias for me being a Broly fan, but ...

The Dark Knight is better than anything this entire franchise could ever begin to hope to come out with.

Man, I am not about to kid you. I have had a friend of mine tell me he saw Broly only having seen BOG and RF and he said it didn’t spoil any Super for him. It was there I could conclude how you could possibly see Broly without having seen or read Super in a lot of cases. As a result, for the time be...
