Post by coola » Mon Dec 24, 2018 7:03 am

Fans could vote for their favorite movies on Dragon Ball Super: Broly website:

1. Dragon Ball Z: Fusion Reborn
2. Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods
3. Dragon Ball Z: Broly - The Legendary Super Saiyan
4. Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F'

KaiserNeko will probably love this list :D I mostly agree with it, however, for 3rd place i would choose Dead Zone, and 4th place would take DB Movie 3, i really enjoyed its setting :)

So glad to see Movie 12 in the first place, as it is its rightful place indeed, as well as the second place is also meant to be for Movie 14. The rest can go to a trash can.

Fusion Reborn was definitely spectacular, what with Gogeta's debut, all the previous villains being released from hell for a grand fight with the Z-Fighters, and spectacular animation (perhaps the best in DB history?). It definitely represents all that is awesome and epic about Dragon Ball Z.

Broly's debut film was pretty awesome too.

I shouldn't be surprised that Battle of Gods and Resurrection F appeared, they are canon events and told their story better than DBS did.

The only one I can disagree with is Cooler. And personally, I'd have put either the Tree of Might or the World's Strongest in there, even if their early DBZ pre-Vegeta status can be against them,

What a terrible list. Fusion Reborn is a bunch of hot air. BoG might be the worst DB movie ever, ResF and the Cooler movie are ehh I guess movie 8 wasn't too bad compared to all of those 19 movies.

You're telling me that neither Path to Power nor Wrath of the Dragon are on this list? What the hell.

Fusion Reborn is the most overrated movie and Resurection 'F' was garbage.

How did they make it on list and "Path to Power" didn't?

I really would have liked to see the list for all the movies. Would like to know where Tree of Might stacks up.

It's probably unintentional, but it sure is convenient how basically everything in this list also related to the new Broly film. Fusion Reborn introduces Gogeta, BoG has Super Saiyan God and Beerus and Whis, Broly 1 is obvious, Resurrection 'F' has the reintroduction of Freeza and Golden Freeza, and Cooler 2 is the first Goku/Vegeta team-up movie. It's like the new movie saw this poll and tried to include as many elements from those 5 as possible.
I could have gotten into anything...and yet I chose the story aimed at young Japanese boys about martial arts, and later about super-powerful aliens punching each other really hard.

Opinions are of course subjective, but I have to admit, I’m somewhat offended that Ressurection ‘F’ and The Return of Cooler are in the top five. I can’t for the life of me understand what exactly the appeal of either of those movies are, but I guess I’m happy for the people who enjoy those films. This poll would also seem to reinforce my opinion that Wrath of the Dragon is an extremely underrated movie. As of now, it’s still my favorite DB movie.

Fusion Reborn and BoG are great picks. Res 'F' and Coola not so much. M8 is on the top half of the movies but definitely not top 5 material.

It's missing Wrath of the Dragon, Mystical Adventure and Sleeping Princess in the Devil's Castle. Shout-outs to the Dead Zone, The World's Strongest and The Tree of Might as well.

Seems this might have been aimed at Modern Dragon Ball fans than moreso Classic Dragon Ball fans. Hence why you have such an underwhelming top 5.

Mostly because those films don't attempt to be bigger than they are. Bio Broly at least we get to see some of the secondary characters take the spotlight and Android 13 at least there were sustained periods of action.

BoG is a film in which largely nothing happens at all. Follows the standard Z arc plot in which villain shows, Goku is out, others distract/hold down the fort, Goku the saviour arrives etc.

Beerus has a terrible introduction in which we aren't shown why he has the title of GoD instead we're just constantly told he is, sure his strength is shown but we've seen strong foes before.

The film also gave us those terrible modern DB designs, overall flat animation and mediocre direction.

It didn't even introduce the idea of the universes as it didn't show us them merely mentioned in an offhand line that fans ran wild with.

I used to love BoG but one viewing it just didn't sit right and ever since I just been disliking the film more and more.

Fusion Reborn is a fun movie with enough enjoyment to put it into the top #10 but does not have the substance to place it on the top #5, let alone as #1.

Battle of Gods is totally worth being in the top #3 (I personally would rank it #1), it's the movie with the most amount of substance and less formulaic DBZ formula that plagued, to varying degress, the previous 13 DBZ movies.

The Legendary Super Saiyan is the same case as Fusion Reborn it's entertaining (less so than Fusion) but not a lot of substance behind it (admitely it has more than the former), it has enough attributes to rank it either #10 or #9.

Ressurection 'F' just does not deserve being in the top 10, there's just nothing in that movie outside of Yamamuro's lackluster directing and not appealing character designs and aesthetics, this movie should be among the botton.

The Return of Cooler is just a whatever movie filled with nothing but fights with a dull villan and with zero substance compared to the light amount of pathos the first Cooler movie had (Cooler's ironic fate at the end).

The lack of Wrath of the Dragon on this list is disturbing, the movie that had the most amount of characterization and character drama of all the DB movies (before and after). Other movies that deserve to mentioned on a top 5 should be Path to Power, World Strongest, Dead Zone.

Personally, i don't like Wrath of the Dragon, villain was cool, but, Tapion was boring, and Kid Trunks is one of my most disliked characters in Dragon Ball. I'm also curious why they made it like Tapion Sword was one Future Trunks uses? It was needless confusion.

I enjoy movie 13, but I find Mystical Adventure and Battle of Gods to be the best of the movies. Both are just so much fun.

Even though The Path to Power is nearly 1.5 hours, it's still trying to stuff way too much into its runtime.
Bio Broly at least we get to see some of the secondary characters take the spotlight
And? That doesn't make it interesting.

It's a decent list I'd say, although I have mixed opinions about Movie 6. On the one hand it had good fights and the first ever Goku/Vegeta team up. On the other hand the way they revived Cooler felt forced and convoluted, and they cheated us out of seeing Goku and Vegeta actually fighting a billion Coolers which would have been awesome. It's a decent movie overall, but I think Movie 1, Movie 3, Movie 5, and Movie 7 are all a bit better.
