DAYUM!!! DRAGON BALL SUPER BROLY!!!-WATCHED


Wow, so I am a old school Dragonball fan before it became wide stream on Toonami, I visited ChinaTown N.Y Weekly with my comrades to get my imported bootleg anime and asia flicks. So Dragonball was one of many flick I saw before they came to the states. So enough of the memory lane lets get into the meat. Dragonball Super Broly much like the recent 2 movies is a canon film that is bringing Broly into the canon DB universe, thanks to the introduction of his female counter part Caulifla. Broly’s origin story has changed alot removing his hatred of Goku and the whole one liner Kakarotto, the hatred shifted entirely to Vegitta as Vegitta father exile Broly to a planet, which I won’t go too much into, when you watch the film you will gain the full details. Missed will be some of the craziness and humour of the original which had Future-Trunks Krillin, Piccolo, Gohan, Master Roshi and I believe Oolong. This film was all about fan service and insane beat down. Broly 2.0 was not simply a killing machine he was simply an enforcer with some level of empathy, love and respect for his father.

Now to the art, visuals, fights and dragon ball madness. The art is beautiful and well done, the animation is top notch, the colors smack you in the face with such splendor and brilliance. They really went all in with the craziness, even Gojitta makes an appearance and the insanity goes even more insane. The fights felt like they dragged on for ever. Even though the animation and fights were well done, I can clearly state that the original Broly made you feel the beating that Goku and his crew took from Broly considering that they were severely under powered when they met him. In this new film their power dwarf his until he gets a power boost.

Now for that power scaling where do I begin, they lost me at that point, the power scaling made no damn sense anymore, they kept ramping and scaling and it was just insane. With the original you understood the power scaling and where the heroes stood no chance. You sort of knew where certain heroes stood in terms of being able to go foot to foot with who. For example in the first Kooler film Goku took a near fatal attack because he failed to go super Saiyan right away when facing Kooler. The same can be said about the first Broly where they clearly did not understand how powerful Broly happened to be. In the new Film We have Goku and Vegitta ramping up to face off against someone who they clearly dominate but his power scales as well but to match their God form wait a sec do you realize how power these guys are. I will leave it at that.

Sadly I went to the theater with the intention of seeing madness anyway and I was well satisfied. Before I move on, if you are able to watch this in a theatre before it heads to digital media please do so. The fan service was all over the place and the jokes were definitely old school dragon ball humor. If you could see it in the theatre please do if not get a 70inch set and watch this film. Please don’t see a dragonball movie and expect it to make sense or change your world, this film is just about some dude beating the shit out of each other and loving it.

That’s all I will add loved the film.

DAYUM!! BUMBLEBEE A Transformer movie.

Well damn this film by it self felt more awesome than the last several transformer films and the main chunk of the film only focused on three of the transformers. It first started of featuring the Cybertron war, where we got introduced to Prime, Bee and a slew of other transformers whose names I forgot. It then jumped into alot of other spoiler stuff which I won’t spoil and I feel it’s best to leave that to you the audience to jump in and enjoy it. There were several parts I disliked but overall the film was entertaining and when it ramped up boy did it ramp up. The visuals were stunning and the atmosphere and scale was ever so present. I believe limiting the amount of bots helped this film as it allowed the film to narrow it’s field of view and simply try to give a little story which I really felt was more a human story than a transformers tale, the bots just happen to be in it. The first transformer live action was probably the next one I loved the rest were simply films. Either way peeps go out and enjoy it, or wait to catch it on a streaming service.
