    Dragonball Evolution

    Post by Fenon on Sun May 16, 2010 12:23 pm

    I'm soiling myself by walking this crap, its that afwul rubbish thats based on something but the creators have no fecking idea what the thing they are basing the movie on is about. Aggggh its the worst! To give you an idea of how bad it is it would be like making a movie about the teenage mutant ninja turtles but the turtles aren't turtles, they go to highschool and are the school dorks that are bullied by the jocks, they don't live in the sewers, they don't eat pizza, april is a busty cheer leader idiot, and they aren't ninjas they do gay ass wushu.

    And that still wouldn't be as bad as dragonball evolution, auuugh why do people insist on buying the rights to make a movie based on something when they have no intention of having anything to do with what the thing is about. They have the name to bring in the fans but they infuriate the fans by doing this, and they aren't going to attract a larger audience with this s**t.

    Not sure if I'll continue shaming myself by watching it, even if I'm not paying to see it.

    I mind Sherbert taking me to see this at the cinema and she was amazed how much they destroyed the plot and skipped things etc. Having only seen a few episodes of the cartoons I wasn't as caught up with the destruction of the story and kinda enjoyed it as an ok fantasy action film. I can understand where you are coming from though, there's been so many things turned into films where they change things or don't follow the original source and it just annoyed people.

    One that jumps to mind is the Daredevil film where the Kingpin is suddenly a black guy?! In fact Marvel films seem to run with that trend as they done the same with Nick Fury in the Iron Man film. A stupid thing to annoy a viewer but having read the comics it kinda grated with me a bit.

    The only thing in Dragonball thats the same are the names, thats it and frankly I'm shocked they bothered to pronounce them correctly or use them at all. I know what you mean about Daredevil and the Kingpin being black, but there are so many worse things in Daredevil that it didn't really bother me much past first seeing that he was black, and I quite like the guy that played him.

    I think though even taking it as a non-dragonball fan that whole teenage thing is done exactly the same way in every single movie with teenagers in. Look at Spiderman, The Forbidden Kingdom, Transformers. Its always the same dorky guy getting bullied by jock, dock likes jocks girlfriend, girlfriend pities dork, dock goes on adventure, dork wins girl. There are only ever small variations to that formular.

    By the by Dragonball was based on Monkey Magic (The funkiest monkey that ever walked) the first few episodes are almost identical, then it starts becoming its own thing. Goku means Monkey, Monkey from Monkey Magic is based on the Monkey King who is a very important figure in Chinese mythology, he's like Loki the God of mischief. And to connect this to PSO the Monkey King Bar is based on the Monkey Kings staff. And the spiky hair in PSO is likely based on DBZ's SSJ hair.





    Not a great example you can't really see it correctly but it is almost the same.

    2. i really doubt anythin in pso is based on dbz

    When you say spiky hairs been around longer what exactly do you mean, do you mean the hair in PSO has than DBZ or that spiky hair in general has been around longer? I mean big spiky hair not just little spikes. I'm sure you know but DB has been around since the 80's.


    I would say though that DBZ has had an influence on sonic team, *Cough* supersonic - super saiyan *Cough* the internet tells me that super saiyans appeared 2 years before supersonic. Oh course the influence for the super saiyans came from hitlers love of the Aryan's.













    Even my beloved Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon has been influenced.

    Goku never had any interest in girls, he only cared about food the only reason he got married was because he had no idea what it was when Chichi asked him to marry her. He would never miss out on food and would only have gone to the party if it had more food or fighting. Master Roshi was a Hermit he wouldn't live in a city although cities are fairly isolated places. atleast Roshi is a pervert even if he doesn't look 100 years old (He never would have dropped Bulma if he had a hold of her butt). And Yamcha is scared of girls (Yamcha wanted the DBs so he could wish to be able to talk to them, Bulma wanted them to have a husband not to as a power source). The guy that plays Roshi (He was in a respectable movie, the main guy from Crouching Tigar Hidden Dragon) no idea why he would want to do this movie.

    The girl that plays Chichi is an awful fighter, I could beat her in seconds, her movies are far too big and weak.

    The special effects are quite nice though, even if everything else is rubbish/cliche.

    Oozaru was as big as a house, and completely out of control. Only Vegeta could control his Oozaru form. I doubt Goku had any idea what was happening when he was making their son Gohan, Chichi would have made him do it.

    Crap looks like they actually think they are getting a sequal...

    Nooooo!!!! This shiz doesn't need a sequel!! They've destroyed EEEEEVERYTHING!!! I mean the only thing they kept similar were the name. You can tell its meant to be based on Dragonball (not Z) but in Dragonball Goku was like 12 or something. First mistake!!! aaargh!! on a side note it was an ok film if you weren't a fan of DB/DBZ.
