The effects on this poster don’t look particularly enticing though (that is the ugliest ki ball I’ve ever seen), and I’m still waiting for an official shot of Piccolo’s makeup. If we’re lucky, he’ll be able to look as good as Mystique, but I’m not going to be hopeful about it. It’s curious that they decided to go with Dragonball after all instead of Dragonball Z as the latter is obviously more well known and popular, but I guess DBZ would have involved more shinies as the series really gets epileptic with the light shows after Vegeta is introduced… The fact that Vegeta isn’t in this movie is kind of disappointing though. He’s a fun, obnoxious egomaniac! Though Piccolo kind of fits that too when he’s first introduced. Goku should be a kid though, and he is not a kid. His hair isn’t outrageous either, but that’s probably a good thing.
According to Wiki’s entry, Krillin (I grew up on the dubs, leave me alone) is mysteriously missing on the cast list. I guess he’s not horribly, horribly important or anything, but come on! He’s Goku’s best friend! Maybe they just couldn’t find anyone short enough for either Vegeta or Krillin? Who knows.
I still haven’t seen the Dark Knight yet. Jesus. We’re not going back to the stupid one-screen theatre. The nearest AMC is like twenty minutes away with four whole screens, only one of which is showing the damn movie. So they only have four show times the entire day. The first one is at noon. Ughhhhhh. Meanwhile, at home, my brother says it’s playing on six screens and they have about thirty showings per day. Sigh.
Anyway, they finally put out the trailer for the Gurren Lagann movie (WARNING: trailer contains spoilers for the TV series). It looks like they’re covering a good chunk of the show, but they’re doing two movies right? Hmm. Most of the animation in the trailer looks to be recycled, but there did seem to be a few newly animated sequences. I hope they manage to hash it together right; TTGL was one of those series where I kind of felt like each episode was relevant, even if the first five was basically just character intro. There’s only a week until the dub series hits the Sci-Fi channel. Man, I wish I had a TV. Not having one is why I haven’t seen Doctor Who in like a year. Sadface.
