    Just watched that trailer for DBZ... Think about it any of us on this forum apart of that? No? I say it's a MILLION times better than the last live action movie they did...

    Honestly, it is better than I was expecting, but I was expecting it to be terrible.. I just didn't want to say anything since you all were so excited. It was kinda funny at times when it wasn't supposed to be..

    Is Veku like Gogeta backwards or something.. lol

    I thought the trailer was actually quite good, the only thing I didn't like was the English accents, I thought I read somewhere they were going to use the Anime's voices.....I guess not, apart from that, a little bit more work on improving on the special effects and it would of been awesome.

    apart from some parts(well casting mostly) the trailer was quite entertainig the special effects were pretty good for low budget effects and the fighting seemed nice if only they had the budget of DBE and a better cast

    I enjoyed it. I wasn't expecting a Hollywood budget film, so maybe I wasn't let down because of it. The only person that I didn't really like was Tien. He seemed not very believable. Which sucks, because he is one of my favorites. But I think overall it will be a decent video.

    Tbh, if they pull of decent reviews, it wouldn't surprise me if the producers / directors at the very least get offered a budget to make a sequel

    Problem is, after the saiyan saga, when they get to namek, were really talking special effects, and it would be costly, so its either going to be a one hit wonder, or a start to a great real action franchise, but it will need serious backing

    lol that was bad, I don't know if DBZ could ever translate well over to live action.

    Well I guess Hancock with Will Smith, he basically has all the powers goku has, minus the beams.

    Never seen a good beam, even in the street fighter movie it was lame.

    Not a single saibaman was seen that day.

    I enjoyed it. For something self funded I reckon they did an awesome job. You can tell they loved DBZ and they wanted to stay as true to the anime as they could. Hats off to them, makes me a bit jealous that I have neither the skills nor the money to make one myself haha.

    As a question though, if you were to remake your own DBZ Saiyan Saga movie and had unlimited budget, you would you cast?

    For me it would be:

    Piccolo - Samuel L. Jackson (I have had it with these mutherfuckin saiyans on this mutherfuckin planet)

    Nappa - Stone Cold Steve Austin

    Goku - Probably that guy who plays Jin Kazama in the Tekken movie whose name escapes me

    That's all I can think of for now, I'll add more as they come to me.

    You guys are hilarious :P When you all get excited for these fan made productions, I sit back and think "that looks like the most absurdly idiotic thing anyone will ever make" and while you end up being disappointed, I end up thinking "wow, that was significantly better than I anticipated. I'd give that at least a single watch". Maybe you guys should lower your expectations and you'll be a little happier with the end results

    "Fan made" means "made by amateurs" in my book, so I guess I just don't expect these things to blow my mind. I'll admit Absolon and the live action film aren't going to pull in anyone but other fans, but they are vastly better than I originally anticipated.

    It's implied that Vegeta could have gone to the same level as Trunks, but like Goku, he saw the disadvantages of that form, so didn't bother.

    You'd be surprised. Given time and energy, fanmade products can be quite impressive. Not to pull the pony card, but there are full episodes being worked on that look just like the show. Given, that's Flash animation, so yeah. But the voice actors you can find are just as impressive too.

    Oh I believe you, and that was kind of my point. When I heard people talking about Absolon, and most importantly the live action film, my first thoughts about those things were pretty negative. I was actually saying I was pleasantly surprised by how well made they were and that I had been giving them far too little credit.
