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

I never said shows airing once a week can't be successful. They are plenty throughout history in North America that were huge successes with the once-a-week format. I'm mentioning DBZ because of how much it dragged on due to the huge amount of filler. When you take a show like that and break it dow...

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

I agree with you on the Dragon Ball myth, but the "God of Planet Vegeta" story comes from a god who certainly knows the real story since he knows exactly who Freeza is and why he should be avoided. Said-god also if you'll recall *desperately* didn't want Goku running headlong into battle with Freez...

Re: If a new series were to be developed, Toei should go for a different approach

You ,and anyone else, absolutely have the right to say whatever you feel in whatever thread you want, I'm just saying there are certain things that just aren't called for. I just feel people, especially on the net, are quick to reach for snark and witticism at the expense of decency. I feel like de...

Y'know, I'm okay with people having this opinion in general, but what really ruffles my feathers is the attitude. This incorrect fan here would love to see...

We should've just let the thread end here honestly, because this is still the most correct/sane/logical answer.

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

While the shift from "pure Slumpian gag manga" to "semi-serious kung fu fantasy epic" is incredibly gradual throughout, the 22nd Budokai is certainly indeed where I've always marked the sharpest "turn" in the tone of the series. Daimao solidifies it yes, but really its the 22nd Budokai where I think...

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

Superheroes are very silly. It's people playing dress up to fight crime. It works because it's a colorful over the top genre, but if you try to take it 100 percent serious it all falls apart very quickly. Instead of Batman being heroic, if you put him in the real world, then you see him for what he...

Say what you will about the pre-MCU comic book films, but at least they had a better understanding of tonality, balance etc. Go back and try watching the 2003 Daredevil film with Ben Affleck sometime and get back to me on that. :lol: :lol: :lol: Or hell, virtually ANY scene with Willem Dafoe's Gree...

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

My biggest concern regarding nerd culture isn't that they necessarily just watch stuff meant for children, it's the gatekeeping and toxicity. Episode 1 may be a terrible movie, but Ahmed Best talking about almost being driven to suicide should've been a sobering moment for anyone paying attention. ...

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

Although, I will say for the record that putting a one note dark tone over a movie where people where costumes to beat up bad guys is rather pretentious unless you are pointing out the inherent silliness of it. If you put a one note tone of ANY KIND (dark, funny, warm, scary, etc) on ANYTHING, its ...

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

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 smash hit, there is a reason people are asking for #releasethesnydercut. People are starting to get hungry for...

To be fair there's very few of us here under the illusion that Disney is actually going to do this anytime soon. But it is an interesting topic because of the challenges that such a production would have, the many ways to ruin it, and the stars that need to align in order for it to be decent and ac...

(remember when no one knew whoever in hell Iron Man, Captain America, or the Guardians Of The Galaxy were?)

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

Because unless I'm given an unfair advantage (the unearned) I'm not actually being given something like it's a favor, I'm simply not being shackled. My issue with the term is that it's a package deal. It's lumping in people getting the unearned with those that aren't having something unjustly held ...

Re: Toei should promoto Piccolo more as a LGBTQQIP2SAA character

I don't believe that most people are saying that things aren't bad now, just that they were even worse 20/30+ years ago. Which, while in SOME ways that may be true (though in plenty of others, this is vastly over-estimated by people who don't truly know what the fuck they're talking about in the fi...
