I used a site called parcl, when I bought the DBZ 30th Anniversary set, because the official licensers don't have the rights to distribute it to my country.
I just checked this website and apparently it will cost me $85 to ship a $10 Blu-ray.

I think I may just put on my eye patch for this one. lol
Just use amazon uk.

NGL I didn't think this would work because it never does when I try to order off Amazon Japan, but it worked. Mucho thanko~
Special Beam Cannon!

I was expecting an extended version of this beauty to come out before I rewatched it, but since at this point that may never come out, I decided to rewatch it today. I had a blast!

Surprisingly the CGI scenes were better than I remember.

The pacing I still think it could better. If the length cannot be extended, I would reduce some time from the present battle against Broly and show more of Bardock's rebellion.
A world without Dragon Ball is just meh.

I watched it again a couple of weeks ago and I felt it was much less good than my first and second times watching it.

The problem is that the story and characters take a backseat to the visuals. Seeing those fights and animation the first time around is breathtaking, but once you're used to them, there's not much else worth revisiting. This is why I still consider BOG to be the best out of the 3 movies we've gotten, it focuses more on the story and characters. The producers did say the next movie will try something different, so hopefully it's more story driven than Broly was.

Does anyone know what Daigen's name pun is? I noticed it is not listed on Kanzenshuu's movie guide page. He's the big purple guy that tries to make a move on Cheelye.

Just rewatched this for the first time in nearly two years. My enjoyment now is the same as it was back then.

I don't think the fighting portion diminishes the story at any point; it's just a more subdued way of highlighting Broly's internal dilemmas, which ties into the larger theme of fathers and how their actions affect their offspring. This all culminates in the formation of Gogeta (an excessive fighter by design) to have the viewer progressively sympathize with the titular character as the fight escalates, and blurs the line between protagonist and antagonist in ways that Dragon Ball has never really done before. Despite borrowing concepts from older "non-canon" movies, that feels refreshing in its own right.

The battles being so fun to watch on a surface level is just a bonus, and directionally plays to Toei's strengths. With Toriyama at the helm, coupled with the anime team doing what it does best, its execution represents what Super should have been from the start.

Still my favorite DB film by far.

Does anyone know why the Dragonballs only granted 1 wish again? I remember this being a problem in Movies 14-15 too, but the first one had the excuse of Shrenon being scared of Beerus so him retreating made sense. Then Movie 15 had Pilaf/Mai wish for money as their second wish if I recall.

This one there was just no explanation. Shrenon granted their wish to move Broly back to the planet and then he just said their wish was granted and disappeared. I don't know why they always overlook this in the movies because it creates a plothole.

Ehh I wouldn't say it's a plot hole when there's reasons it could by going by the shows established mechanics.

It just means someone else used the other 1/2 wishes recently.

It turns out Bulma has been wishing for youth in instalments so perhaps she did it less than a year ago.
Yamcha almost certainly did not cheat on Bulma:
He was afraid of Women, Bulma was the flirty one.
Yamcha wanted to get married (it was his gonna be his wish)
He suggested they settle down in the Trunks saga.
Alternate future Trunks is not a reliable source.
Toriyama wanted new SSJ Kids and not make new characters.
