I'm not going to watch it if I can't get someone to come with me. Watching movies alone at the theater isn't fun. If there's no Japanese version, I may have to reconsider going even with friends.

I'd go see it twice if it was shown here in Norway. And I could go see it twice (dubbed and subbed) if I was in france at the time it will be shown.

I want to watch it on the cinema but I'd rather watch it subbed in Japanese or dubbed in Castillan rather than FUNi's English dub so I guess I'll just wait for the home media Blu-ray release.

I'd love to watch it in theaters, but the only way I'll be able to do so is to trojan my way into the theater (Basically get some family friends to take me to see a movie my parents would actually approve of, with one of those family friends knowing that I want to see a different movie... and even that friend won't know which movie. Don't worry, I'll buy a ticket out of my own money).

My parents know nothing about Dragon Ball in general, and I intend to keep things that way.

...and before you ask, I'll be 24 right before Valentine's Day.

I doubt it is showing in UK cinemas, but even if it is I won't see it as I very rarely go to the cinema anymore anyway. I don't think it represents good value for money these days.

Basically the guy in the video says that he will not go and see the new movie because of the spoilers. So I wanted to know, if there are any other DB fans (if you happen to know or if you are one of them) who will not see this movie in theaters (when it's available in their country) and what's the reason for that decision.
spoilers about what? this movie bearly have a storyline

I'm still thinking about it. I really don't care. The only question I truly want to know is if Broly lives or dies. Other than that I can predict to a T exactly how this movie will play out, and that's boring. Battle of Gods you weren't too sure, and had an ending you weren't expecting.

Probably won't go see do to a combination of having work tomorrow and the in general not liking what I see of the new Broly in general as a character from the trailers(he feels really boring and 1-dimensional). I'll hopefully catch it online sometime later.

Ignoring all the “because dub” comments, I’m not seeing either but for different reasons.

I just have no interest. I spoiled myself purposely when they first dropped and I wasn’t impressed at the least. I tried to care, I really did, but I can’t bring myself to.

For one, they adapted Minus and it’s still as bad as ever. Two, I don’t care about another Goku and Vegeta movie. For all it’s issues; the ToP was a step in the right direction with actually using other characters. But they went right back to the old formula. Also I’m really not on board with rebooting characters from the old movies and making them “canon”. It’s a cheap way of making your movie popular. On the topic of Broly I really don’t like what they did with him. He’s basically full blooded Saiyan Gohan now. For all his faults I really like movie 8 Broly and I was sad to see that he was all but wiped away in favor of this new “he’s a good boy don’t hurt him” version nd when he inevitably joins the cast that puts the final nail in the coffin of anyone else doing anything significant. Also not seeing what the hype about Cheelai is either.

Honestly, I wholeheartedly believe that the large majority of the reason this movie is so popular is because of the animation. It’s really something special going by the trailers so people are more forgiving and are just in awe of the visuals. If DBS Broly looked like BoG or RF, it would be viewed much more critically I think. And that’s kind of a shame.

Because dub.

Jokes.

I've no interest in watching in cinemas, when it hits on Blu Ray, I'll pick it up then.

Having seen it in theatres, and have been since watching the various bootleg cuts on YouTube, this is definitely a movie worth watching in theatres. Even going in spoiled, this movie was a rush

I was spoiled on a lot of the details and I agree it’s not the most exciting thing they’ve done, but there’s a lot more to enjoy about it than other DB movies. I felt it was a lot more cinematic in scope. The dialogue of the early scenes was really goood and of course the animation itself. Plus the new characters are far more enjoyable than I expected.

One here. There's plenty of theaters showing it...but all the times are either 930 or 945 at night. Since I work mornings that won't do. I'll just buy the Blu ray 2 or 3 times since that's how many times I was gonna see it.

How about just taking a Uber bro lol, Unless your like 3hrs away from your nearest theater but even still though, much like anything else in life its only worth what you're willing to give up for it. :wink:

I find it really weird that this question would get asked about the Broly movie, but not BoG or RoF - two movies that it kicks the living shit out of.

Tbh while I still think the manga version of Minus is subpar, I really enjoyed its presence here in the movie. When combined with the opening scene of Frieza's rise to power, including Bardocks rebellion against Frieza, and the improved storyboarding/art and animation, I really became a fan of it.

Of course, how a film looks (especially a film with a lot of action) is a huge factor in how much people like it. For the most part, BoG looked like a video game cut scene and R'F' felt like a slightly higher quality DBS episode. I would give each of them about a 7/10 and I would give Broly a 9.5 out of 10. If either of them looked as good as Broly, I would probably rank them at about a 9/10(BoG), and 8.5/10(R'F').

I regretted watching the movie last December. I was reminded why I told myself I’d never go to an anime movie showing again. Because of the fans. I like watching movies without overreaction and talking every other second. Some reaction is fine like when SSG Vegeta appeared, but it was just so consistent that it was hard to enjoy.

Maybe if I was back in the states, I wouldn’t of minded going off on a couple people. But since I’m in Japan, and in the military, I probably would’ve ended up all over social media for being an agressive, entitled foreigner. Wasn’t worth it.

Definitely just going to buy DVDs from here on out.

You haven't even watched BoG and RoF online? Those two and this one are all of a higher quality than the Super television show. This movie in particular probably had the best fight scenes in the series.

My theater didn't have much reactions, so I wasn't detracted at all, but here is at tip. If the fans are a problem just go at a show time when not much people will be there. If you go to a movie a few weeks after it is out to a really late or really early showing, other people really won't be much of a problem and you could even get an almost empty theater.

I'm not understanding you. The better the movie the more relevant this question would be, as if the movie was bad there would be no reason to ask it, but the reason would be that the movie is bad, lmao.

The better the movie is, the increasingly ridiculous and/or petty the reasons are to not see it. Is that what you're trying to unearth?
