I have to be honest. I didn’t expect much going in, but man did this video blow my mind. Its amazing what a person, or in this case a team, can accomplish when they get together and pour all their energy into something. I’m a pretty patient guy, but I don’t know if even I would be willing to sit through a year working on an animation like this. There are so many details that have to be noted, that I can only imagine how hard it must’ve been for these guys. That’s just the animation side of it, the voice work is also pretty darn good for the most part, aside from a few awkward sections. The voice actors for Sasuke and Kakashi both sound nearly identical to their official English dub counterparts. This is awesome stuff, so if you are at all a fan of Naruto, watch this video.
Kate Del Castillo is the hot topic around Spanish media as of late due to her new series, La Reina Del Sur (The Queen of The South) where she plays Teresa Mendosa, a capo, drug smuggler, whatever… Anyway, like 99% of all soap operas, La Reina Del Sur is total crap minus one detail; Kate Del Castillo. She is such a hot taco that I force myself to sit through the show every now and again.
Here are some pics for your viewing pleasure
In 2009, I, like most rabid Dragon Ball Z fans were eager to watch Dragonball: Evolution, which was the end-result of almost a decade’s worth of waiting. In the end, James Wong’s take on the Dragonball mythos, fell short of what we all knew a properly-made Dragon Ball Z film could be. Dragonball: Evolution was universally despised, more-so than even M.Knight Shyamalan’s 2010 epic disaster, “The Last Airbender” (I personally thought TLA was okay, not great, but okay ). I, however, wasn’t so forgiving of Dragonball: Evolution, which is evident to anyone who has read my review of the film.
Here’s a fan-made Live Action Dragon Ball Z skit, and while it is clearly low-budget, it’s got way more Dragon Ball flavor than DB:E. This video features 3 actors, one portraying Android 17, and a female (a… hot… female) playing Android 18, who’re both battling a Super Saiyan 2 adult Gohan, outfitted with his Great Saiyaman get-up.
The flying is rather impressive, and the fast action fighting was much more satisfying than what we were force-fed in Dragonball: Evolution. I’m not saying this low-budget skit is better than the film simply because I hated it, I’m saying it’s better because it is. It’s picasso to a baby’s doodling, Led Zeppelin to Limp Bizkit, Tupac Shakur to Lil Wayne. No offense to James Wong, James Marsters, or Justin Chatwin, and especially not to Emmy Rossum, but this fan-film is simply… better.
THIS is how a Dragon Ball Z live action film should be done + a 100 million dollar budget (as Dragonball: Evolution was first to have had. It was later revealed that the film’s actual budget was 50 Million) and awesome special effects.
and now here are some cool live-action Dragon Ball Z videos:
Goten and Trunks doing the Fusion Dance, and holy shit, it worked!
Say hello to the real version of Super Saiyan 1 Teen Gohan
That is some crazy hair Gel… or whatever she used… yeah… that’s a chick…
Goku and Future Trunks Chatting lol
The following is an excerpt from The Blank Slate by Steven Pinker. It deals with what occurred in Montreal, Canada during the police strike of 1969.
As a young teenager in proudly peaceable Canada during the romantic 1960s, I was a true believer in Bakunin’s anarchism. I laughed off my parents’ argument that if the government ever laid down its arms all hell would break loose. Our competing predictions were put to the test at 8:00 A.M. on October 17, 1969, when the Montreal police went on strike. By 11:20 A.M. the first bank was robbed. By noon most downtown stores had closed because of looting. Within a few more hours, taxi drivers burned down the garage of a limousine service that competed with them for airport customers, a rooftop sniper killed a provincial police officer, a doctor slew a burglar in his suburban home. By the end of the day, six banks had been robbed, a hundred shops had been looted, twelve fires had been set, forty carloads of storefront glass had been broken, and three million dollars in property damage had been inflicted, before city authorities had to call in the army and, of course, the Mounties to restore order. This decisive empirical test left my politics in tatters…
Can man really not govern himself without the overbearing fear of his action’s repercussions? October 17, 1969 was a shameful day for Montreal, Canada.
Amy Lee isn’t just a pretty face. She’s an incredibly gifted pianist and singer. She’s the frontman, or frontwoman I should say, of the rock band Evanescence, who was behind the popular hit ‘Bring Me To Life’. That was a good song but my personal favorites from ‘Fallen’ were ‘Hello’ and ‘My Immortal’. Very beautiful songs and Amy Lee’s voice suits them perfectly.
For the 5th edition of “Hot Chicks” we have none other than Emmy Rossum:
Some Dragon Ball Z fans may recognize Emmy as the sexy actress who played the role of Bulma Briefs in the universally despised 2009 film Dragonball Evolution.
Dragonball Evolution may have failed epically, but it certainly wasn’t because of Emmy Rossum. She made the film watchable…
