If you’re a fan of anime or manga, there’s not much that Hollywood has to offer. There’s the less-than-great Alita: Battle Angel, the even less impressive Ghost in the Shell and the live-action adaptation of Akira that seems forever stuck in production purgatory. But now one of the biggest anime and manga properties is making a return to the big screen in live-action format.

If you’ll recall, we told you earlier this week that a new Dragon Ball movie is being planned and in case you’re thinking “but Hollywood already made a Dragon Ball movie before,” you’re obviously not one of the millions of fans who refuse to acknowledge the existence of that train crash. The last attempt moved the action to America, turned many of the characters white and played fast and loose with the show’s mythology to the extent that it ultimately retained only the barest resemblance to its roots.

God, I hope not. Dragon Ball is best served by great animation. It’s too fantastical to adapt into live action. I’ve never watched Evolution myself but I don’t need to because I know it’s hot garbage.
Yeah, don't watch it.

It's not even "So bad that it's amusing to watch bad". It's simply just "I wish I'd never seen it" bad.

Every time they pronounced Ki with a hard K sound, I wanted to cringe into the fetal position.

That Mario movie was so bad it was amusing to watch, at least for me.

Imagine crapping your pants in 2nd grade and being forced to sit in it for the next 5 hours. Then finally getting to go home and finding out your mom didn't pay the water bill so it was shut off and you are forced to ask a friend to clean your butt off at their house. They say yes and you are on your way over but a dog catches wind of your stench and goes after you. He gets a hold of your pants and rips them off. So now you are 4 streets away from home, no pants, and covered in your own shit. That is what it is like to watch Dragonball Evolution.

For a second there I thought you were retelling us a very traumatic story about going to see the Mario Bros. movie

Thank you for sharing with us your very true and traumatic experience. :tasty:
This never happened to me, I would be shocked if it happened to anyone in the world like detail for detail.

But I did pee my pants in school once. I was too shy to ask to go to the bathroom in front of other students. LOL I had crippling shyness, like big time.

Calm down R Kelly... :lmao:

Back on topic to the actual thread. I am basically in the same basket as other people thinking that a live-action DBZ movie would be a mistake.

I'm always optimistic in that I think it could be done well. I've seen a couple really well done fan movies.

This is an extremely accurate representation of what it is like to watch Dragonball Evolution. You feel like you're sitting through a river of shit, particularly during any scenes "Roshi" is in.

I completely blocked out Roshi being in the film. I choose not to remember it. The entire thing was a car wreck and I couldn't look away but also wanted to vomit.
