Monster Bump it seem..... Let it just be said, this has actually been old news..... Older than this thread. At least I've known about a 20th Centuray Fox DBZ movie....

My god will it suck...

Isn't it going to be live action too?

Yes, faster than a black hole.

On the plus side (at least what I heard) Nappa will be played by Bill Goldeberg. JOBBER JOBBER JOBBER

I heard about this a couple of years ago. It was said that they wanted to make 4 movies, one for each arc, and they would each be about 3-4 hours long. I actually wouldn't mind this at all, depending on the cast that is.

They're either going to be really really good, or really really bad, unfortunatly I think the latter will happen

This is silly. I'll just assume they're doing the Saiyan Saga (God help them if they do ANYTHING else from Z).

A) It won't work time-wise. It'll be 8 hours long, and that's if you cut out the characters of Bulma, Yamcha, Tien and the baby doll. But then again, they have to be there for the Nappa fight (well, not Bulma, but you get the point), or else Nappa's gonna look like a bitch even before Goku gets there.

B) If they could shorten it to 3 hours or less (mostly by cutting dialogue and the anime tradition of explaining or screaming out what you're going to do right before you do it), character development is completely lost. DBZ had an entire SERIES of backstory and it still took a whole season to explain what exactly Goku is.

C) Where in the blue hell are you going to find an 6-year old boy who looks like he could take on the majority of the planet and win?

Now, if they just do a movie, like say "The World's Strongest," I would be happy. It would be fairly easy to adapt, doesn't really require much backstory, and Dr. Wheelo would look really cool as a live action character. Plus, Master Roshi fights in "The World's Strongest," And he could be done in a cool Pai Mei type way.

So, in conclusion:

TV Series adaptation=stupid idea.

Movie adaptation=okay idea, but you still run into the problem of finding a kid that stacked who can do martial arts.

They could cut a lot of time out of the series if they cut out the hours of "charging up" and heavy breathing.

Not to mention the hours upon hours of idiotic egotistical dialogue, the blank staring, the constant flashbacks to episodes past, etc. etc. etc.

Please let me know if I left anything out of the "DBZ List of Regular Occurences".

Repeated character deaths and ressurections?

Master Roshi constantly viewing porn?

The live coverage and commentary on all earth-based fights, even if the combatants attempt to find a deserted island?

Oh, JESUS, how did I forget the seemingly endless supplies of barren wasteland where the combatants can blast every friggin' thing in sight, which amounts to nothing more than a bajillion miles of nothingness???????
