Re: Would you say Dragonball Evolution is better or worse than The Last Airbender?

DBE had such a low budget it was pretty much doomed from the start. That said, I always thought Chow Yun Fat COULD have been a good Roshi, had they aged him up via make up. Only showing him young during flashbacks. I also at least appreciate that they TRIED to make the world a bit fantastic and colo...

Re: What do you want with Broly?

Looking though a user’s post history? That’s shit the manbabies on reddit use when they don’t have much of an argument. :lol:

Focus on the content in the current thread, people.

Re: What do you want with Broly?

That doesn't make sense. There's plenty of superhero comics that are for all-ages, while also being plenty of titles for an older audience. I didn't realize there was a mandate that you couldn't have both. I’m not against comics for adults obviously. My statement about Dark Knight Returns and Watch...

Re: What do you want with Broly?

Oh if only we had some really strong resourceful person around, we'd be saved. I don't really think this is the message that those stories primarily send. I see it more as "Look at how these folks are living their lives, see what's possible when you work hard enough and/or are fortunate enough and ...

Re: What do you want with Broly?

More to the point, I feel one of the one reasons the Bardock and Trunks specials were as impactful as they were was BECAUSE they were the exception and not the rule.

Re: What do you want with Broly?

My question is; what would a more “adult” Dragon Ball even look like? Would it entail more graphic violence? More focus on the politics of the Dragon World? Blatant sex and nudity? I think this is assuming a lot about what it means for a story to be "adult." HxH is pretty definitively for kids but ...

Re: Dragon Ball and COVID-19

To bring this back to something slightly anime related as per the topic, I’m not so much concerned with Toei as I am Kyoani. Recall they had already suffered a huge tragedy last year due to arson.

Re: Dragon Ball and COVID-19

Exactly, IF proper measures are taken. The problem is that a lot of people (especially on the right/conservatives) aren't taken these measures, which is resulting in things getting worse. It's even worse than that; there are a shitload of people who actively believe that this is nothing but "a slig...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

[When they separated from Saban, that would have been a golden opportunity to start fresh, but they didn’t take it. Hell, even the Cloverway dub of Sailor Moon started to use the Japanese ost. And I can’t believe I’m defending that dub! :lol: The Pioneer dub of the movies gave Funimation a golden o...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

There are definitely some standout tracks, and its implementation is often much worse than the music on its own. Still, English Dragon Ball and Japanese Dragon Ball are two different beasts entirely. You can't really say that the Faulconer music is better than the Kikuchi music as they were respons...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

The main issue beyond all the bullshit is simple. Funimation, an American company, dared to think they new better then the people who ACTUALLY made the anime. They even did this long after replacement scores were unpopular. I don’t get how anyone in this community can be for the blatant Americanism...

Re: Vic Mignogna

I'm out of the loop here, so sorry if I sound ignorant but what happened with AmaLee? The reasons are two fold if I remember right. I may screw up the details, so forgive me. The first reason is to look after her son who was/is suffering from a deadly (if not terminal) illness. I forget what it was...

Re: Is it time to accept Faulconer OST did it better than the original?

Just look at how literally the rest of the world got the show and you have your answer. They have no problem with it. That is true. Ironically enough, I think that the attempt to "modernize" DBZ by throwing the Faulconer score in, actually had the opposite effect. Because it was synth, it sounds so...
