Dragon Ball : Evolution Review

You know, with all the craze bout making movie adaptions of Marvel or DC comics, you'd think by now movie directors finally got the right guns to shoot a good movie. The rule is very simple - just follow the comics, make quick bucks and get themselves massaged in the spa looking at bodacious babes.

Here's a strip of comics on what 'Dragon Ball : Evolution' is all about after seeing the movie:

But noooo, director James Wong probably farted in his spa room just 2 minutes ago. By having completely revamped the story and slapping some totally unsuitable actors inside, this movie is a total let down for legions of loyal fans all over the world.

Everything just went wrong since the opening. The story changed. Timeline changed. Weird choice of actors. Bad dialogue. Anti climax. Yada. It felt as if the movie can't even elaborate itself well enough for those who never came across the comics, and yet if it expects comic readers to actually like it, why the total revamp? Beats my goober balls. *shrugs*

Infact, it's all about the race to find 7 dragon balls within an hour so Picolo could not take over the world. Reminds me very much of what The Day Before The Earth Stood Still movie, y'know the drill.. "we must hurry, we don't have much time left!" throughout the whole show.

This picture below probably sums up my review.

I wonder if he even read the comics? Akira Toriyama must be turning very picolo right now. Oh my!

Goober's Two Thousand Nine

Ahem.. before I begin, Two Thousand Nine is translated briefly as (2009) in numerical form. That's equivalent to "er ling ling jiu" in mandarin and surprisingly - written as (MMIX) in Roman numeral. Whereas in latin, it can be further sung as a song for new year if you compare it with 2008.

It's almost been a tradition for me to go on hiatus after each post, but seriously this time I had a real reason for it. What exactly took me so long?

It's Simple

Of course, 2009 being a whole new year, surely bunch of things started to happen, right? Well :

1. Got myself the lovable and adorable Nokia 5800.

Which happens to really take photos for this blog now, and um...they really suck and need more editing than old sony ericsson phones.

2. I've got this cute little lantern that lights up but doesn't bark.

3. I bought back my old love in a whole new package. Comes even with, (drull rolls) Korean Manuals!

..and to think my old one only spoke Japanese. Mattaku, that baka was a pain in the ass!

4. I freakin' just broke my chair leg .

on this very chair I'm sitting on blogging right now.

5. And finally, a whole new chapter of life will begin very soon as I'll be moving on to another place.

NOPE...not another new blog! *But* to a land where an abundant flow of Free Wifi will be provided ---
