REMINISCENT of the RAZZIE®- NOMINATED 1987 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093507/ - MASTERS of the UNIVERSE MOVIE, the LIVE-ACTION VERSION of http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum_topics.asp?FID=350 - DRAGONBALL: EVOLUTION ARRIVED AT LEAST TWO YEARS TOO LATE to BE of INTEREST to MUCH of ANYONE AT ALL...   

ADD IN THAT the ORIGINAL MATERIAL WAS MEDIOCRE at BEST, the CASTING INCLUDES a 28-YEAR-OLD PLAYING a TEEN-AGER, the EXECUTION HERE IS STRICTLY BY-the-NUMBERS (and THAT FOX's ALMOST NON-EXISTANT AD BUDGET ON THIS SUGGESTESTS EVEN THEY ARE EMBARASSED by the FILM) and YOU CAN SEE WHY WE THINK THESE BALLS SMELL an AWFUL LOT LIKE RAZZ-BERRIES.

SO, FEEL FREE to GRAB SOME PAST-ITS-SHELF-DATE HAIR GEL, SPIKE UP YER TRESSES, and START THROWIN' SOME HARD BALLS...'CAUSE ONCE YOU SEE the DVD, YOU'RE LIKELY to BE THROWIN' Z-Z-Z-Z-Zs...

GOKU: "So, Bulma...wanna play with one of my balls?!?!?"

It was exactly a decade ago when "Dragon Ball Z" was big and my friends and I were talking about how cool of a live action movie it would be. This is NOTHING like the movie we had in mind.

Meanwhile, Keanu Reeves will star in and produce the live action "Cowboy BeBop" movie. He said he's a big fan of the series and if he doesn't like the script, he won't do the movie. Wow, that's pretty sad when the fate of a movie depends on what Keanu thinks is a "good" script.

This Americanized anime thing is unpleasant.  Live action DB, live action Cowboy Bebop, CGI Astro Boy (w/ Nick Cage as Dr. Tenma), etc.  I kept getting mad when Adult Swim took away all that anime, but now I wonder if they drove people away to protect the anime from Hollywood.  There were rumors of a live action Evangelion as well.

As for DBE, you can tell there are over 9000 things wrong with it just by looking at the commercials.  No Krillin whatsoever, a white Piccolo (he's supposed to be green), no blue hair for Bulma (the producers? apparently said coloring Rossum's hair would make her look weird or something?), the school-boy Goku thing, the "discovering" of his powers, etc., etc., etc.

Did the people making this movie even watch the show?

*Rabidly booes the over 9000 joke.*
As for Piccolo, he's KINDA green, and Bulma has blue streaks in her hair.
As for making a live action movie... There may have been a time when I didn't hate the idea, but now I definitely do, this movie aside. I remember thinking that during the final Matrix movie (which I hated) and during that final fight scene where Neo and Smith are flying that, "Ok, I guess it'd be possible to do a live action DBZ movie now at least." But I didn't really want it that badly. Now I really don't. And after this movie, I really, really, really don't.

I doubt it. If they did, they would know each season goes like this: First ten episodes, there is this all powerful and evil being who wants to destory the planet, and he's killed all my friends. Quickly, we must collect the Dragonballs and wish them back to life. Next ten episodes, I'm fighting the super villain, but I'm too weak. I must power up for my fatal energy blast. Ten episodes later, I'm still powering up for my fatal energy blast. Ten episodes after that, okay I fired my energy blast ... but I missed! Ten episodes later, no matter, I defeated the super villain with a different energy attack that didn't take an entire season to power up for. Last ten episodes, I have all seven Dragonballs, and I wished my friends back to life. All is right in world ... until next season ... when an even more powerful super villain will show up.

Yeah, based on that, I kinda don't blame the producers for wanting to go a different path ... like not making the movie at all would have been nice.

If this show follows the format of the series as shown on Cartoon network, the first half will be a recap of what happened previously, then there will be about 5 minutes of "Powering up" and then as the credits roll, they will tell you what is going to happen in the sequel... They will carry on this way until there are too many damn movies to count, and all but the most rabid fans have given up.

Then every theater manager had better equip all the ushers with fire extinguishers wherever this turd screens, because Dragonball: Evolution will be easily worse than Speed Racer.

Speed Racer collapsed on several levels http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=2693&PN=1&TPN=2 - of which I detailed over on that movie's thread , but this adaptation of the beloved Dragonball series appears to simply crater, as would the mind of anyone lured into watching.

Even sadder is, this may not even be the worst movie aimed at kids being released this weekend.  I really feel for parents this weekend.

While I could care less about Dragonball Evolution this weekend (this is a glorified DTV release that will be forgotten come next week), it truly is a slap in the face for fans of this franchise or anime. Here you've got a chance to make a big-ass martial arts epic, and you hand it over to the director of the miscalculated Black Christmas remake (Billy had yellow skin, Mary Elizabeth Winstead put on the most retarded southern accent since Jessica Simpson did Daisy Duke, and blood = filled theater seats), while it should've been given to Stephen Chow (who executive produced). Chow would've been able to burst open every opportunity to give the film the personality it so desperately needs. Instead, we've got a watered-down, family-friendly version that has suffered nothing but negativity from fans.

For full disclosure, I did not watch the last 45 minutes of Speed Racer. I couldn't. It is possible that the last 45 minutes were a fertile garden of sophisticated dialogue and coherent storytelling, but I doubt it. Let's face it, the cheesy dialogue made the script from Gigli look like freaking poetry, because at least you could tell that Gigli's script was written by (incompetent)adults, but the people who made Speed Racer probably hired a seven-year old to write most of the script while they worked on the visuals. And not to mention the plot gets outrageously convoluted at the point I shut it off.


Remember when people were complaining about the Wachowski's Matrix sequels and saying they made you dread mentioning their name when they really weren't that bad?

Speed Racer actually is that bad.

I have a new phrase for movie adaptations like this: Catwoman-ized. It suits an adaptation that is adaptation in name only, because although it shares the title or character names of the source material, the adaptation's story has little or nothing to do with the source material's story.

Example: The "Dragonball" cartoon is all about an alien child who crash lands on an island with his old fighter who raises the child as his own and teaches him how to fight. Later on, they meet more characters and take on an alien invasion with help from the wish granting Dragonballs. HOWEVER: In this "Dragonball" movie, they went the way of the token "it was all a thousand year old prophecy about a chosen one saving the world". Of course, the "chosen one" is a teenager who is a social outcast of his high school that is bullied by jocks and hopelessly longs to hook up of the school's supernaturally hot Asian girl. He gets superpowers and learns how to use them by a wise mentor who gives him cliched words of wisdom like "true power comes from within", and as a result, schools the jocks and wins over the supernaturally hot Asian girl. By the third act, the alien invasion finally shows up and the Dragonballs come into play, a superpowered engery blast later ends the alien threat, and end with a cliffhanger in order to set-up for a sequel, repeat.

Gee, how many times must that story be told?

PS: I know of only one person who really, really, really wants to see this movie full price in theaters. His reasons are 1. To see how bad the movie will be. 2. He believes if this movie does well at the box office, the sequel will be better (there's moviewizguy logic for you). I had to explain to him in three different ways that when a crappy movie is successful, it doesn't lead to a better sequel, it just leads to crappier sequels. And also like moviewizguy, he refuses to listen to reason.

Speed Racer wasn't that bad. I'm sure the few people who actually saw that movie turned out to like it. The plot was sophisticated, but still easy enough to understand. The performances were great (and you can't say they weren't -- they were). The visuals were simply fantastic, the action scenes mind-blowing (including the acid trip finale).

There's nothing you can complain about. It's an action movie with brains and a plot.

http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/dragonball/news/1812302/weekly_ketchup_dragonball_hangover_sequels_announced - WHAT? Apparently, they are already working on a sequel to DBE and have the script done.  It also mentions the new guy for Freddy Krueger, but the focus here is DBE.

We don't even have figures for this movie yet...though http://blogcritics.org/archives/2009/04/10/0025532.php - one source predicts a weak opening .  Also, I heard some stuff that the actual budget for this movie was only $50 million, not the $100 million initially listed.  I don't know if that is true.

Dead on! Whatever articulacy the original screenplay once had was clearly
lost in translation because what appeared onscreen was a cold artless
lump. Granted, the visuals are amusing to look at, but if you're over the
age of 5, then in no sense will they be able to salvage this stiflingly dull
and useless "action" movie.

One more thing, while the Wachowskis do film the race sequences with
some nice style, all of the all of them together are still inferior to the
amazing car chase sequence the Wachowskis made in the second
Matrix movie, which is still in my #1 spot for "Best Car Sequences of
All Time".

Whatever happened to the twin albinos with the cornrows?  I'd guess they would eventually get taken over by Agent Smith since they were software programs, but they never appear in the third movie.



Posted By: movieman

Yeah, it's never explained what happened to them, but my best guess is that
they reported back to their master, the Merovingian.

And Dragonball is now sitting at 18%, and according to the critical
consensus, it's lacking in both style and substance, meaning this
could be worse than Speed Racer*shudder*.

Oooooh, I don't know about that. The Matrix 2 car chase was prtty fantastic, yes, but I like the ones more in Speed Racer. The Island had a fantastic car/aircraft chase too. Final Destination 2 had a fantastic, jaw-dropping car accident sequence. Yes, I know my car chases. Cellular had a simple but very effective car chase. Death Proof was also decent. For me, the best car chase sequence is one that has my heart pumping. I think the best, for whatI can think up right now, is Cellular, but that's just me.

I also think that the twin ghosts are programs of the Matrix, as is the
Merovingian, so Agent Smith couldn't have consumed them to clone himself.

Speed Racer is considered a Box Office Bomb both domestically and worldwide. Domestically, it made only up to a little more than $44 million, and add the worldwide grosses, it reached up to only a little more than $93 million on a $120 million budget, so, it's considered a Bomb alright.

I've heard BO numbers for DBE expected to hit $40m opening weekend. I've also heard that I don't always believe everything I hear.

By the way, Observe and Report was fricken sweet. When I'd heard Rogen's character compared to De Niro in Taxi Driver, I kind of shrugged it off, with this being a comedy. But he is definitely, DEFINITELY as crazy.

According to the estimates on BOM, Dragonball opened up with $2 million
on its opening day. It was expected to make $40 million, but depending on
the word-of-the mouth, it might not even make $4 million this
weekend.

$2 million growing into $40 million within two days? That would have to be some amazing word of mouth, and from what I hear, DBZ fans are in an uproar over this movie. The REAL total it will make, anywhere between $5-10 million before dropping off next week.

No, I meant before the weekend started they predicted it would make $40
million, but yeah, for this movie to gross $38 million in two days is less
likely than Uwe Boll sweeping the Oscars next year.

Not surprised. Even I didn't know the film was released this weekend. I mean, really, there was, literally NO COMMERCIALS AT ALL! It's kinda stupid. Fox doesn't seem to have faith of this film in America. Worldwide, Dragonball is a hit, actually.

I know $40M is an outrageous estimate for something that's competing against a teen-magnet and a cop comedy, but I think I might have found who or what might've given you that thought: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lz6IgU3m3lM - LINK .  Ironically, he doesn't comtemplate its competitors, but he does give a logical reason why it might make that much, even though it was overestimated.

As far as Razzie nominations go, the only category that this film would probably make is Worst Remake or Ripoff, but it'll probably end up losing to Friday the 13th.

My friends saw the movie in theaters because they just had to know how bad it really was. They said it was on par with "Catwoman"! They even said the movie erased all memories of any good films they have ever seen in their lifetimes. "Godfather", "Citizen Kane", "Goodfellas", "Pulp Ficition", all replaced with memories of this horrid movie. When I told them I was a voting member of the Razzies, they told me that this movie better be listed all over the voting ballot come voting season. Word had it a sequel was already in the works. Judging from this stink bomb at the box office, that sequel will never come to be.

This movie had one really big thing going for it. Expectations were so low, that all it had to do was not result in spontaneous brain aneurysms to actually be considered a success, which could explain why there are a smattering of good reviews. I have to admit that there is a morbid sort of curiosity that makes me want to head out and see this film, and so far I have had better things to do... Next week though, I may have to do bad movie catch-up... And may the FSM have mercy on me then.

As I wrote above, my friends hated it, too. As for winning Worst Screenplay, that's going to be a hard choice considering all the other crappy screenplays there are to choose from. It's almost like the studioheads figured "Since this movie is going to be seen by mostly 12 year olds, we'll have 12 year olds to write it!" That would certainly explain alot.

Michaels, I hope CriticalFrank heard your friends: This movie is like a Dementor: Its influence, as long as it lasts, wipes your memory clean of good memories and traps you with horrid ones.

CriticalFrank, unless it's curiosity like you've never experienced before, I'd take their word for it. If it is record-breaking curiosity, dispose of all guns, explosives, and poisons first, then remove from your access any and all swords, axes, spears, bracers (which enhance fist power), knives, maces, flails and nunchakus, bows and arrows, staves, flat weapons (like hammers and skillets), spell tomes, and all throwing weapons like boomerangs and shurikens.
 
Besides all that, my biggest fear is that my friends will see where this movie ranks on my Bottom 40 of Double-O-Nine, and they'll revolt: As deep as it ranked, it won't be deep enough.

Again, I watched it on my PS3... They have it on that at least. but yea, make sure you don't pay for it like I did. It's worth a larf, especially if you know anything about Dragon Ball, but this kind of behavior shouldn't be encouraged. It's like a kid poking a dead cat with a stick, it's kinda funny at first, but it gets disturbing after an hour or so.

Or lesson being Hollywood can't make a good live action anime movie even if the lives of their children depended on it.

Actually Anime just can't be adapted into live-action.It's hard to explain but if you look at it you'll understand.

Well yeah, the only thing you can really do is convert it a CGI film, but anime is just too creative and animated to be mad into live action.

Why didn't this movie swept the 2010 razzie ceremony?

Rushmore, at first I thought it was because it wasn't seen by a lot of people. But then I realized that ALL ABOUT STEVE did worse at the box office. Now I think it's because this movie didn't have major stars, and the Worst Picture nominees did.
