Episode 32: Dragonball Evolution


Recommended Posts

While Dragonball Evolution certainly isn't the worst movie your heroic hosts have ever reviewed, it is probably the laziest adaptation of a source material ever seen to this point. Join them as they tell the tale of a spiky-haired kid and a Jim Carrey cosplayer embarking on the world's fastest Easter Egg hunt. This is the part when we note that this podcast is longer than the movie. [ 2:08:58 || 64.5 MB ]

There has been a weird amount of stuff on this movie lately. Cinema Sins on this showed up on Youtube yesterday. There was an honest trailer on it a few weeks back. Now this here. Is there a reason I am missing for all this interest in this movie all of a sudden?

DBZ has regained a bit of its popularity since around the Goku and his Friends Return special in 2009. Since then there's been DB Kai, Episode of Bardock, Battle of GODS, Toriyama showing Goku's mother and Bulma's sister in Jaco the Galactic Patrolman, and DBZ Abridged. It's been a fairly active series after over a decade of dormancy.

I've yet to see this movie in full, and am probably going to wait until we come to it for my DBZ podcast. From what I've seen though, "lazy adaptation" certainly covers it. Goku in high school, WTH?

I noticed the same thing. Pure happenstance. We originally had this one scheduled for the November slot, but moved it up when Waterworld was canned. The Cinema Sins went up literally as I finished editing and I watched it wondering if we missed anything.

I'm pretty sure the Honest Trailer has been up for quite a while. I'm almost positive that I watched that many months ago.

EDIT: Upon checking, it was December, so yep.

Ugh. I saw this pop up on Netflix a while back, and thought, "No way. Not watching that."

But, again, a great episode. Your pain brings us so much entertainment.
