The new review has been posted: The surprisingly not bad Dragonball Evolution. It isn’t great, but I didn’t feel angry for how stupid it was after it was over like a certain other 2009 film involving people fighting that will be the next review. Instead we get this crazy fantasy brainless film that makes you think about balls. Dragonballs. And yet, the only dragon in the film, we don’t know if he actually had any balls. Something to ponder. Complete with clip and lots of pictures, read it today!
[adrotate banner=”1″]Dragonball Evolution was a bunch of fluff that ticked off a basement full of anime fans. Luckily, I don’t care about the anime so I didn’t think it sucked (review coming soon, in rough draft form now) and now there will be more moaning as a sequel is announced! Huzzah! James Marsters is the only one confrimed back, but we’ll probably have others as I am sure they are locked in due to contracts. And where were my fistcams?
[adrotate banner=”1″]This movie will be terrible! If you want any more proof (other than these pictures or the trailer) then check out this interview where the director talks about how they have fistcams for Goku!
VFX supervisor Velasco Shaw employed what Wong calls “fist-cams” – from the noted company Iconix – that are so small they could be attached to an actor’s fist, allowing a character’s punch to come right into the audience. “It’s a kind of ‘fist POV’,” Wong elaborates. McLachlan contributed the suggestion of using new high-speed digital Phantom cameras to create super-slow motion for key action sequences. “We did a lot of research and development with the Phantom cameras,” says McLachlan, who had discovered the-then experimental photography on YouTube. In the YouTube video, a balloon filled with water was popped, with the “action” caught at 1000 frames per second. McLachlan and Wong were impressed with the results. “The most spectacular thing about it was that the water retained the shape of the balloon before it fell,” Wong remembers.
Here are some bonus pictures of Jamie Chung, who plays Chi Chi:
Expect a review here, despite me knowing nothing about Dragonball Z (much like the writers of this film, it seems!)
The trailer is also a liar, there was a previous live action film from China. It was also terrible.
