On Cheelai, t wasn't just that one shot though, it was several shots back to back putting her in tantalising positions. I didn't mind the scene where she stretches her armour over her boobs because that had purpose, i did take issue with the scene I'm referencing though.Kanassa wrote:A side shot where one of the characters is bending over in an average manner, with no focus on making the shot tantalizing, nor even showing or putting detail into the areas that would be sexual is not even remotely sexualizing Cheelai.nato25 wrote:- Lastly I just remembered, when they really over-sexualised Cheelai in that one scene where she was talking with Lemo. Like she wasn't trying to be sexy or talking about anything related to that, and the camera was framing her in the most sexualised way, it just seemed really off. Could be a Japanese culture thing, I found it really strange and perverted frankly.
That wasn't a throwback, that was just contributing to the joke that he was making such a simple wish sound like a dramatic and sinister plot with how he presents it.Dragon Ball Ireland wrote:The way he held his fingers when saying he was going to make that wish was clearly a throwback to the 5 minutes scenario. It was done for the sake of a gag, one that I'd say worked well.Kanassa wrote: How did Frieza's wish have anything to do with Namek? If anything, it was a parallel to the Bulma scene that came just before, right down to them both saying that they specifically have to go for five otherwise it'll be noticeable.
On Freeza, its an obvious juxtaposition to Bulmas scene that happens two minutes prior. I did find it a little strange Freeza would care about something like that however the joke worked really well in my opinion so ai didn't mind it. If it was going to be a throwback I believe commander red wanted to wish for the exact same thing back in Dragon Ball. You can believe its a Namek throwback if you like and maybe the fingers holding up thing is, heavily doubt it though.
