I see. And judging by the fact that I haven't seen any kind of relation between those airing movies and Dragon Ball Super movie, I don't know how the former stuff confirms anything for the latter stuff. I take it it's just coincidence.

It’s a movie that doesn’t follow a single, monotonous plot line; there’s a story in the present and a story in the past, and there are changes in setting, so it’s got quite the sense of scale. I think it’s become a spectacular “space opera”. There are some multilayered elements as well, so I think it will be something people can watch and enjoy again and again, with everyone imbuing all sorts of characters with a variety of feelings.
Oh, that actually got me excited... Will they bring John Williams as the composer too? lol

Interesting, how would you improve RoF?

I don't know what would be worse, that or the fan reactions. :lol:
2 hours of tense drama and then Broly defeated in 1 second. That sounds good to me and anything that makes the fanbase go nuts is usually a good thing.

Jiren has no deals with Universe 7 that would make no sense.
As long as it is entertaining then all is good to me especially as it is Jiren.

I detailed it here shortly after the movie came out. It's been 3 years so most likely I have some better ideas now or I could have developed my ideas better, but this should cover it for now. Some of it got addressed in the Super version of F, which is why I prefer the arc to the movie.

If Goku/Vegeta/Broly have new forms or something spoiler-y then they will be blanked but presumably labelled.

Now I got sent September, October and November's catalogue scans early so if I hopefully do again I should have them exactly 2 weeks today.
Were SSBKK and SSR(both of them) telegraphed by catalogues?
Nah DBS didn't get properly marketed until 2017. So by then all the pre-ToP stuff didn't need to be blanked since obviously everyone knows about them.

Funimation also hints that Gogeta might be in the movie since part of the dbs movie promotion was the 3 movies/specials airing in theaters. And Bardock and Broly are both confirmed. We just need Gogeta.

https://mobile.twitter.com/FUNimation/s ... 6308771840
Bardock isn't exactly confirmed yet. Also the 3 movies aren't part of DBS movie promotion.
Maybe not directly stated to be but its obvious that they’re airing db movies now of all times for the new broly movie. And so far, 2 of the 3 movies/specials happen to have something that shows up in the new movie as their own key factor in their own movie/special.

Movie 8 is mainly about Broly and boom, the new movie is also mainly about Broly. The Bardock special is mainly about Bardock and his story and it just so happens that the new movie has DBMinus which is Toriyama’s version of the Bardock special. It can’t be a coincidence, IMO.

I called it that Gogeta, Bardock, and something Broly related would be in the movie before it was even announced that it was a Broly movie. 8)

It was an entertaining Dragon Ball movie compared to most. Aside from the rushed feeling the ending had, it was always moving and when the action kicked off, it was fun as hell. I was never bored with it like I was with, let's say Cooler's Revenge, where there's odd periods of just dull scenes like Gohan and Icarus going to get senzu beans for Goku and the terrible fight scenes.

It's just a fun Dragon Ball film that I can easily rewatch. The other 2 Broly movies however...

Yes. As I explained in another post, this trailer did not show anything to get me interested and "hyped" except for what it might be Bardock's hand. However, since Bardock himself does not appear properly and nothing that I wanted was shown, it is not enough for me to consider the "main series" to be alive and kicking again.

It will remain dead until they finally decide to present some good content in it (and properly on-screen).
I don't see how you not liking it makes the main series 'dead'

Because it's a "snowball" issue. Nothing from the "main series" the came out since 2014 was good, so...

Yes it does, it's my personal stance on this. I won't watch this movie and the next series if they don't surprise me with something good.

Yo, people keep saying Gogeta the fusion should beat Broly, but like what if forcing a potara on his ear and fusion with someone who has to calm him down internally was how they did it? That'd be a neat twist and a unique way to end the battle.

No room for Talk no Jutsu in this movie. They're going to beat the peace into him!

Dunno, haven't bothered with the manga. If that's what happens, then sure, but hopefully, y'know, better.
