Say something nice about Dragonball Evolution.

It did everyone a favor and did not subject us to what Pilaf, Mai, Shu, Tien, or Krillin would look like

I'm grateful

It ended.

Scratch Mai off that list.

Movie's so bad I forgot who was in it.
>>
It was pretty enjoyable with some friends.

It ended.

it stopped a flood of jewlywood adaptations for several years. Pray for Ghost in a Shell to bomb hard so we wont see anything else butchered by hook nosed kykes.
>>
too modernize and change goku pure nature
>>
It was funny to watch in a livestream.
>>
>>134019131
That's what gets me about DB Evolution.

They were going for a market that knows and loves the source material, so they made literally every single decision that ran contrary to fan's desires.
>>
I want to see the second one to see how bad the butcher Frieza.

>>134018955
It tanked so bad no one ever mentioned it again.
Except faggots who make shit threads

what
>>
The fight where Goku beats up the high school students sort of captured the Dragon Ball feeling.
>>
Chow Yun Fat and Jamie Chung were in it.
>>
The kamehameha was better than in the show.
Also the romance was actually felt between Chi-Chi and Son Goku. I'm a stickler for the original feeling and Goku really should adore his wife. He could have married food or Oolong instead but he went with her.

I've always wondered if this movie killed anyone's career.

Since it made some people vomit, dangerous microbes were ejected from their system making them healthier.

It didn't bring about a sequel.

Others said it was so bad, so I didn't see it.

It gave me inspiration.

The idea of them picking King Piccolo as a villain instead of Vegeta/Frieza was nice.

I seriously hope this is bait

I liked wolfman Goku
>>
>>134018955
Yamcha and Bulma were pretty good in my opinion, even though their wishes were changed and Yamcha wasn't a good fighter
>>
>>134021411
It's not. King Piccolo was a cool choice because most of the casual DBZ fanbase never watched Dragon Ball and barely even know who King Piccolo is.

Either Frieza or Vegeta would've been the obvious and lazy choice because they're arguably the most known/popular villains of early DBZ.
>>
>>134021758

Its a dragonball movie
Not a dbz movie
>>
It's actually somewhat decent when you view it from the perspective of a parody.
>>
Shit movie.

Still better than live actions made by Japan.

>that fucking Kenshin movie
>>
>>134022209
Didn't china make at least 1 live action dragon ball adaptation in the 90s.
>>
>>134022121
Z is just an extension of Dragon Ball. Nothing stopped them from picking Vegeta just like how nothing stopped them from picking Pilaf, or the Red Ribbon Army.
>>
>>134020106

Nigger...

>>134022246
I believe it was based on the legend of Son Goku, you know the one DB took the idea from.

The fuck are you on about? The first 2 kenshin movies were great. I havent watched the last one yet, but im sure its gonna be as good as the others.

There isnt a sequel

It made FOX lose a lot of money

It was filmed in a nice park that I used to enjoy in my youth

>>134022361
actually it's "legend of monkey king" and no, that movie was indeed based on dragon ball, with muten roshi and everything(he was actually the best part of that movie) except it was mostly shit

why do these people always try to change everything when adapting dragonball to liveaction?
>>
>>134018955
The negative response persuaded them to make a real Dragon Ball movie.
>>
>>134018955
No one remembered it, until now. Why'd you have to ruin the one quality it had?
>>
the movie was so bad that james marsters, who played the main villain, didnt even want his name on the project. James Marsters only real claim to fame is playing Spike on Buffy the Vampire Slayer
>>
>>134022588
The live action movie?

You actually like that trash?

The fuck is wrong with you.
>>
Chow Yun-Fat looked like he was having fun.
>>
>>134018955
it managed to reach the big screen...
could never watch more than the first 5 minutes of the stupid "movie"
>>
It helped to get Super created
>>
It never had a sequel
>>
Emmy Rossum and Jamie Chung manage to be very good looking.
>>
>>134019682
They had already written the script for the sequel, apparently.
>>
>>134019937

Only thing that could possibly redeem it and it didn't.

It's a great bad movie to watch while drunk with friends, so that's a thing.

What the fuck was wrong with the Rurouni Kenshin live action movies? You must be high.

>>134018955
I forgot it existed until now. Thanks, bitch nigga.
>>
>>134018955
It isn't shown in my country before I read the reviews.
>>
>>134018955
IT would be a nice movie if it didn't had the dragon ball name on it
>>
>>134018955
I'm glad that they hired a white actor to play Goku.

I understand it was a controversial decision at the time, and a lot of people wanted an Asian actor, but as an Asian myself, I'm actually glad they chose Justin Chatwin to play Goku.

Had an Asian actor actually played Goku, this would've set back Asian actors another several decades and more or less cement their role in Hollywood as the laughingstocks of the film industry.

That game was actually decent though.

That game was ahead of it's time.

Look good

>>134018955
Idk how much you guys care about /tv/ but the leading actor/actress went on to appear on Shameless which is like one of the top shows on television right now.

Prob wouldn't have had same actors if not for DBE
>>
>>134018955
The Bulma actress was hot.
>>
>>134018955
Bulma and Chi-Chi's actresses were hot?
>>
>>134020106
It sure was short lived.
>>
>>134022246
Korea made a version too and it's 1.1 with the source material. Korean Bulma is qt. Cheap as fuck though, but more enjoyable than Evolution.
>>
>>134022209
>Still better than live actions made by Japan.
Even Japan's worst adaptions tower over it. It's not better than anything at all.

>better than the show, where it's a giant planet destroying laser beam

Oh i get it, you're trolling. Also the "Goku x Chichi romance of the movie was lame and basically a lesser versin of Gohan and Videl's "romance" ( in fact the "Goku" in this movie is basically Gohan) and there is NOTHING in this movie that is on the level of Goku and Chichi's first meating in Dragonball or when he proposes after fighting her in the tournament. Fuck off!
>>
I remember laughing at that part where they're looking for Master Roshi in the phonebook and Goku is sitting there eating chicken or something and says, "Did you look under Master?" That was one of the only parts where he really felt like Goku to me, and it stuck with me. I haven't seen the movie since it came out in theaters but I remember that line clearly.

That was both bad and kind of hype. Trunks has a stupid accent and super saiyan looked kind of dumb
but dat cell
dat Goku

they cancelled that G
>>
>>134027667
They made Battle of Gods good to give people faith in the new movies. Now that Battle of the Gods had convinced people that DBZ movies were still good, Frieza wouldn't need to be good to attract the same audience.
>>
>>134027667
I liked Resurrection of F better than Battle of Gods.
>>
>>134018955
It made me appreciate the original series more.

Toriyama didn't do Resurrection F.

Is it wrong to say an American Attack On Titan movie would be more accurately cast

I re-watched it recently and the final scene with Mai nursing Piccolo is hilariously bad.

>Say something nice about Dragonball Evolution.

By the virtue of Dragonball Evolution's low quality, it lit a fire under Akira Toriyama's ass and made him start writing comics again, specifically related to DB, due to how bad the film was.

Jaco, Minus, BoG, RoF and now DBS are all thanks to how thoroughly Hollywood fucked DB as a live action film.

Irregardless of what anyone thinks of Toriyama's newer work, it's worth noting that DBE must have some some serious dick to make someone like Toriyama, who seemed to want to wash his hands with non-gag manga completely, come back with a vengeance.
