[13:05] <IrnChef_Jovian> hahah being in Japan I got to see Dragonball Evolution before you did, Haruka-san
[13:05] <@SpeedRcrX> Is that a blessing or a curse?
[13:05] <IrnChef_Jovian> A bit of both
[13:05] <IrnChef_Jovian> If ya go into it thinking yer gonna get a straight remake of the manga or anime, you'll come out cryin.
[13:06] <IrnChef_Jovian> But if you take it on its own... the movie works.. until the end
[13:06] <@SpeedRcrX> What happened at the end?
[13:06] <IrnChef_Jovian> It was too rushed.
[13:06] <IrnChef_Jovian> They never really explained _why_ Piccolo wanted to do anything, or really showed off his skills.
[13:07] <IrnChef_Jovian> The whole Oozaru thing came out of left field and barely got a blink of an eye from anyone
[13:08] <IrnChef_Jovian> I mean if YER buddy turned into a giant (well not so giant) fricken APE wouldn't you be a BIT confused?
[13:08] <@SpeedRcrX> XD
[13:08] <IrnChef_Jovian> Good points: Roshi's still a (toned down) perv.
[13:08] * @SpeedRcrX waits for more
[13:09] <IrnChef_Jovian> The fights were good except for the Goku / Piccolo one which was a CG-infested mess.
[13:09] <IrnChef_Jovian> There was no room for Goku to square off hand-to hand and really get into Piccolo's psychology or gain his respect like in DB.
[13:09] <@SpeedRcrX> Well Mako
[13:09] <@SpeedRcrX> as for that you gotta remember
[13:10] <@SpeedRcrX> Piccolo Sr. didn't have the whole respect thing with Goku. That was Piccolo Jr.
[13:10] <IrnChef_Jovian> Oh ya right.
[13:10] <IrnChef_Jovian> OTHER GOOD POINT
[13:10] <IrnChef_Jovian> The Tournament everyone was afraid of wasn't the Budokai, just some local thing.
[13:11] <IrnChef_Jovian> I dunno, if the endign had been edited better, and if Piccolo had had more stuff TO DO with Goku it would have been better.
[13:11] <IrnChef_Jovian> the stuff were Piccolo was alone and talking sounded good.
[13:11] <IrnChef_Jovian> ^where
[13:11] <IrnChef_Jovian> But there wasn't enough.
[13:11] <@SpeedRcrX> hehe
[13:12] <@SpeedRcrX> I heard it topped box office in Japan
[13:12] <IrnChef_Jovian> I don't think that'll last, though. One reason it has is because Hirano Aya-san is doing some dubbing
[13:13] <@SpeedRcrX> Ahh Haruhi
[13:13] <IrnChef_Jovian> But the movie didn't kill me, I was laughing _with_ it for a long time. Ya just have to start off understanding it's a whole new world. I just wish the end was better thought out, though. That kind of broke it.
[13:14] <IrnChef_Jovian> and Shenlon didn't speak :<
[13:14] <IrnChef_Jovian> (And he wasn't big enough)
[13:14] * @SpeedRcrX snickers
