Dragon Ball Movie Plans

Are You Serious?: Anime Goes Live Action?

What Hollywood jack ass decided that they were so desperate for ideas that they decided to start making anime into live action flicks? As if every terrible video game movie isn’t bad enough, now we need to start appealing to the anime crowd. Now there is nothing wrong with the anime crowd, but if I had a guess I would say they are into anime because it is ANIME (notice the animation part in the word?)! They enjoy the cartoon aspect of it! Now the whole reason they even decided to do most of this in cartoon form is because it would be a pain in the ass to shoot all this crap in a live action format.

Dragonball is a great example of this. I used to be a huge Dragonball Z fan when I was in Jr. High and I remember that they always liked to throw their characters through mountains in big battles, and the fact was it didn’t have to be believable because it was a friggin’ cartoon. But now you try to make it all live action and suddenly you have to make this crap real. It has to be believable.
