DragonBall Kai Final Episode Predictions

I know I'm jumping way ahead of things here but I just watched the final ending of GT and it got me thinking. If/when we finally get to DragonBall Z's natural ending, maybe Kai will do something of that sort. It would be cool if they re-animated EVERY important scene from the series and then present...

Dragonball Evolution nominated for Best Comic Book Movie??

http://www.spike.com/event/scream2009/page/vote/category/33546 I haven't been on here in a while. I don't know if anyone has seen this but apparently the people at Spike think that Dragonball Evolution is worthy of being nominated for their Scream 2009 awards. Yeah...I've never heard of it either.....

I would have it be a quick one shot 120 minute episode. The whole episode consists of Goku's fight with Freeza. During the fight, we flashback throughout Goku's life to learn how he got to this fight, and what it means to him. It would show his training with Gohan, his training with Roshi and befrie...

It seems the reviews linked here are always from someone familiar with the DB universe. Here's one from Movie.com, don't know if it's been mentioned but it's short..and really positive?

I know you've all been mentioning the series but the movies have had some really hopeless moments. My example being movie 9, when Gohan is being bear-hugged to death. Goku had to break the rules of heaven just to save him. Jeeze. That movie really is one of the best.

Models will always look better than CGI when done correctly. I'm a film student and CGI is what is known as "rich man's laziness". Audiences can connect with something that was crafted in reality...not virtual reality. Some CGI is very well thought out and used to the best of its ability. There is n...

You mentioned the special effects being not up to par with "today's standards" well, I hate to break it to you, but no movie's CGI is as good as Jurassic Park 1 which came out in 1993. How terrible is that? Funny you should say that. I just watched JP again on HBO last night and kept thinking, "I a...

This movie is barely going to pass 100 million. It's gonna debut at 3rd place at the box office and fall off the top ten in a week. If they released this same movie at the height of the DBZ sensation in the US, it would easily get 200 mil.

I've been waiting for something to sway my opinion one way. AND...these clips have gotten me very excited. This is impressive stuff. In the Bulma meets Goku scene, I was very happy when she said "Bulma Briefs". This is going to turn out to be a pretty impressive movie. I'll be there opening night.

Ramsey clearly is in the right here. DTX's e-mail was juvenile and unworthy of being read by anyone. I find it appalling that his e-mail was read by the person who physically wrote this movie. It's a movie folks. Soldiers are dying overseas and some of us have gone out of our way to insult someone's...

I don't know one person that uses MSN messenger. Anyway, I'm pretty sure DragonBall Evolution will only end up around 3rd or 4th at the box office opening weekend here in the US. "Observe and Report", the new Seth Rogen comedy is as sure to blow it out of the water as Hannah is.

Maybe they based Namek in the movie off of the "filler Namek" from the show :) And if I'm not mistaken, when Namek was first mentioned in the manga, there was no description given. It could just be assumed that Namek is full of bad guys because a bad guy came from there. Maybe the sequel will turn t...

I'm all for this movie. If it's kickass then yahoooo and if it's just plain ass then who cares? Least we got a crazy good manga and an awesome anime to fall back on. 2 outta 3 aint bad.

I watched the new special when it first premiered online. Since then, I've stuck to the manga. I've recently lodged volumes into my textbooks to read at class. It really makes lectures fly by.

It would be nice if someone made a chart showing which specific arcs and/or episodes featured re-dubbing and for what characters. Especially since I believe they haven't re-dubbed anything for the past few orange brick sets. Right?

Joon Park IS Yamcha. Please watch him speak English in interviews, he's freaking him. Same attitude and everything. And like I've said a million times, Yamcha is hilarious in the movie, and he's what I imagined him to be like in live-action. Wait..JAPPO...did you see the movie already? Because I do...
