    I'd much rather have a RL movie within the style shown in the short film than that garbage Battle of the Gods crap we got last time. Let's not forget Bio-Brolly and pretend all the animated movies were classics.

    Those were just bad stories though.

    Take any good dbz episode or movie; and make an animated movie and a rl movie w/ the same script/story and the animated one is going to be better

    Thought it was pretty good, the Trunks was a wee bit young imo.

    Could go either way. He was 13-14 at the beginning of the TV special.

    17 & 18 released 16, who was the only one that could detect energy.

    Huh? Not sure what you mean here. The battles in several animated movies were complete garbage that followed the same uninspired formula, along with it's stories.

    I don't understand either why it has to be a this versus that. It's silly as shit, neither compromises the other. If it's the medium you'd rather prefer than just flat-out say that.

    Yup. It's heavily insinuated throughout the arc that was the reasoning behind 16's good-natured will.

    I'm saying if battle of the gods was shit, make a live movie version of it and it'd be worse. Bio brolly was a shit movie. It'd be even more cringe worthy as a live action film, etc. Special effects irl just aren't able to recreate shit from anime w/o looking like ass.

    You're preaching a logical fallacy. A shit movie is a shit movie. Doesn't matter whether or not it has a bow tie on it, regardless of top-notch RL special effects. I can argue Man of Steel easily has a better DBZ-style battle than some of the DBZ animated movies.

    Again, you're better off just saying you prefer animated movies and let the thread be.

    A 5/10 movie is shit, but a 3/10 movie is even more shit. While it's not everything, how the graphics/special effects look DO contribute, so I don't see how it's a fallacy. Something can be more shit RL than animated (and it can go the other way around as well; just depends on the type of movie)

    and I only prefer animated movies for this style of a show. It's not that I just prefer animated movies in general over RL movies. (I wouldn't waste time on an animated forest gump lol)

    I think that was implied in his response to yours.

    None of the DBZ movies suffer from poor animation quality, the devil is always in the bad script. Be it a lazy villain, more questions than answers or sheer silliness what separates a movie like Cooler's Revenge from Bio Broly comes down to the script. And I'm being generous considering we're talking DBZ here. Not exactly your shining star for solid plots.

    The medium means little. You could have a live-action DB/DBZ movie in the style of an old Jackie Chan flick complete with fun choreography, humor and fights or you can have a giant steaming pile of donkey turds that was DB: E.

    The acting wasn't that bad. It actually was sort of nice to see more than just people reading dialogue.

    The guy playing Gohan needs to work on his line delivery.

    That 17 on the other hand, ridiculously awesome anime/manga to live action adaptation.

    ^ Its funny when the biggest flaw I can find in that 17 is the fact that his hair isn't parted in the middle because of genetics.

    The fact he remained in the lab is my speculation; that he was created before 17 and 18 is a fact and it's not wrong, what did you think the numbers meant?

    does it make sense to create the most technologically advanced one first ,and get worse as you go? or do people learn from the first go, and get better? just sayin.

    For all you know, he was counting down to 1.

    In fact, it makes infinitely more sense. Not counting the movie, Gero was 20 and he built 19, who was weaker than 17/18, who was weaker than 16.

    Wouldn't make much sense if 16 came first only for subsequent models to be weaker than him.
