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

How would you describe Toriyama's distinct comedic style? Silly, Childish, and often times perverse. Now, I'm not the most steeped in Hong Kong action movies, but I can't really think of many action movies that I've seen that include people spying on young girls, an old man groping women, a young b...

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

Not sure where you got the idea that people are "getting wise" to the Marvel "formula" whatever the hell any of that means. Considering every MCU film this year has crossed 1B and their denouement is the highest grossing film of all time, that's a bizarre claim. People like more than one thing. The...

Re: It's actually amazing that DBZ was successful on Japanese TV

I feel the reason once a week works is because it gives the viewer something to look forward to all week. I know I look forward to the manga and that only comes out once a month. I feel nowadays we are spoiled by "binge watching". It makes shows feel more disposable and I think is the main reason Ne...

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

I just want to be clear that I was in no way advocating for a "grimdark" or "edgy" take on Dragon Ball. All I was trying to say is that it seems that the average movie goer is starting to get wise to the "marvel formula" and might be growing weary, I know I myself am. With Dragon Ball the challenge ...

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

Fair enough, I don't agree, and again, I don't have the problem with a ton of humor in superhero movies as you apparently do, but I get what you mean. I don't have a problem with humor at all. Just for me there is a line where it goes from "nice and humanizing" to just plain stupid (for instance Dr...

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

Not sure what you mean by not taking chances with either, but regardless, if you don't like them, that's fine. Hero gets powers, fights villain with same exact powers, humor and quips thrown in every couple minutes. They are designed to be easily digested by the masses. There is basically no differ...

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

Does it know when to be serious? This is a series where in the middle of a fight where a main character gets into an argument with one of his attacks for so long that the scene cuts to the villain drinking a ice cream float out of boredom. It seems like people have this idea that using humor makes ...

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

Yeah, that reason is if it has jokes, apparently it can't be considered mature. The reason people are clamoring for dark stuff isn't because they want mature sophisticated material, it's because they conflate grimdark with mature. It's the same reason we got the glut of dark comics in the 90s, and ...

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

I can't think of anything I'd want to see LESS on Dragon Ball than the MCU's residue leaking out of its pores. I agree with this sentiment. I can't believe how many action/adventure/sci fi movies have been "MCUified". It's almost like everything has to be a "joke" now. There is a reason Joker was a...

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

Asian male leading men in Hollywood are basically nonexistent right now. I think it would be best to leave Goku and Vegeta at the very least as Asian.

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

Titanic would not have had that insane 15 week run at #1 these days. Release windows are much shorter, which if you wanna know a big reason why big budget movies are generally not very good, there's your culprit. Movies used to be able to rely on word of mouth to get around but since films are basi...

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

Streaming and HDTV's are a big part of the reason ticket prices are going up. Less people felt inclined to go to the movies and to make up for fewer tickets sold, theaters raised prices. I'd also be willing to bet that the seemingly ever increasing budgets of big movies is driving up prices It's a ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Am I the only one who's badly waiting for the current manga-only content to be animated? this won't be animated If super ever does come back ( i doubt it) they will start on another arc. Why would they do this? They have source material to go off of that has Toriyama's name on it. Part of the issue...

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

As someone who was the head manager of a movie theater for 11 years I can say without a doubt that the movie theater as we know it is probably going to die. Even back in the mid 2000s almost any movie opening weekend would have a sold out a show or two. It took a real stinker to not even have one se...

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. Unfortunately this is the society we live in now. Everything is click bait and embellished to extreme degrees or j...

This definitely won't happen but it would be HILARIOUS if Vegeta's training leads to Mastered Ultra Instinct and Goku still struggles with it.

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

Superhero comics aren't the same thing at all. They aren't one single story with a single unified continuity. It's a bunch of different takes on the same characters over decades.

After GT we've seen the character in some video games but it's a shame that he's excluded from other new media since other concepts from GT have made big returns.
I agree with this.

I hate to be that guy but isn't Uub supposed to be like Indian, southeast Asian or Middle Eastern?
