    We have a good mix in this forum of people who are positive and negative towards the film. So what are your gripes or concerns if any? This is the place to post them

    People please stay civil. If you disagree with someone just agree to disagree. We all want a GREAT Dargon Ball film :dbz:



    Gripe: My ONLY problem so far is that form the casting sheets we are likely going to get an unpopular Highschool student Goku which I feel is a COMPLETELY unnecessary change to the character. I hope thats been changed or isnt in the movie for more than 15 minutes

    Concern:Chatwin, I've only seen him in two movies War of the Worlds which put me to sleep and The Invisible where I thought he was decent, So I'm hoping he can truly bring Goku to life and that james Wong saw something special in him when casting (I'd very much like to know who else auditioned for the part)

    Gripes - Costume, rushing the movie out, unknown asian actors playing important roles

    Concerns - Itll flop, itll so bad they wont make a sequel, the fighting will be something ive seen 100x before

    Gripes - highschool cliche situations im totally not a fan of...
    no teaser yet...lol

    Concerns - the colorful costumes mean they MIGHT take the FF or DoA route and the movie might suffer a bit because of it... and piccolo not being...piccolo... though im certain they'll stay true to him after seeing recent pics

    Gripes
    Chatwin - to me, he's totally wrong for the role
    Jamie Chung - practically no acting experience and not that pretty imo
    James Wong - directed 2 okay horror flicks, a subpar martial arts flick, and was the writer for the crappy horror flick Black Christmas
    Goku being in high school
    No Krillin - instead we have Teto, a small role, who's Goku's best buddy in high school
    Movie taking place in a semi-realistic world - DBZ was pretty much pure fantasy

    Concerns

    Marsters - kinda short, kinda old, and has no experience with film acting
    Visual Style - we've seen what looks like Goku's costume and it looks like a cosplayer made it, Goku doesn't have his trademark long, spikey hair, and the world will be set in a semi-realistic Earth so i don't expect to see many fantastical elements
    Oozaru mode - we know Goku doesn't have a tail and that the movie takes place in a semi-realistic world, so i don't know if they'll incorporate Goku being based on the Chinese monkey king.
    Movie being rushed - this movie has less than 8 months left and they just started filming. a lot can be done in 8 months but this movie is in the hands of a director that has yet to prove himself.

    I accepted the semi-realistic approach they took, but yeah the thing I'm most worried about is that the film is being rushed

    X-Men 3 also had the benefit of 2 movies that already established their world along with a great cast and a director who has done some decent films.

    x-men 3 was a bit more massive....

    they were able to make the gigantic bridge sequence... because that was the first thing they planned early on...

    im sure DB is doing the same

    They have a small frame of time to make their move... they'll have to be prompt about it. It's possible. But it's not going to be easy.

    So basically Goku is going to be Peter Parker with a funky hairdo? I cringe to see what they'll do to Vegeta, perhaps make him Goku's age (Though he's older than Goku in the cartoon.) and make him "the new kid' in school.

    GGGGGGGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIPPPPPPPPPPPPPES!

    The highschool thing. The movie's REALLY MADE in the editing room, so I'm hoping that throughout the process they drop this aspect. I've seen things you people wouldn't believe... Movies which were thought to be one way during production came out a completely or mostly different way by release, so nothing's written in stone yet. But hey, i can live with goku in highschool *he does become more accustomed to city life after the first season* if:

    he eats like a horse
    he's a goofball
    chatwin becomes a convincing martial artist, no pussyfoot hollywood editing

    Other than that, nah, nothing has really stood out as too bad. This could suck, could rock, who knows.

    in this movie, he's Goku's best buddy in high school. supposedly, it's only a small role....but i still don't understand why they couldn't use Teto's screentime to have Krillin as a cameo.

    Teto could be a code-name for Krillin.

    It's not important.
