    I'm hoping so
    I think the action will rock like transformers or somthin.

    Ok well there is only two ways of this movie turning out, it can go Spiderman the movie trilogy and one the best stories and action movies ever made or Hulk, some people liked it, i thought it was really boring. thats it .

    that spiderman movie, in my eyes as a hardcore spidey fan, was the biggest piece of garbage for a true fan. absolutely terrible, in fact i think the hulk movie was more faithful, and being faithful is what the fans want to see, sadly all movies have to be dumbed down
    Whaaaaaaaaaaaaa? How can you not like that movie, it was prefectly copied from the comic,probably better.How can you not like the movie?

    whoa whoa, bak to the DBZ Live Action Movie plz

    yeah back on topic............... although................ as a MEGA HARDCORE fan of all spiderman mediums (comics, animated, video game, movies) i think that the spiderman trilogy wasnt necessarily faithful to the comics, but thats fine, its almost rediculous to think that it could be ! to think of all the things that happen in the comics leading up to the introduction and demise of green goblin... its gotta be changed to make sense in 100 minutes... and they did a great job of that!! if i've got any complaints with the trilogy, its that Venom needed more then the last third of one movie.... but thats it... the trilogy is different from the comics, but i love it none the less!!!



    its going to be the same with the DBZ trilogy... i mean you'll get the die hard fans that will head into the movie automatically wanting to hate it because of changes and of stupid reasons (Goku's hairs not long enough etc, theres no krillen etc) but they are going to HAVE to change it !! to fit it into a good movie! and if u go into it with a pessimistic attitude then what hope do u have? im not saying if its crap u have to like it, im saying give them a chance to do a good job before u judge it crap!

    Sorry if this has been stated but I was on imdb and so disappointed that there was no Krillin. They got a character named Teto? This project looks bad already unless the director pulls a full 360 and makes the movie a respectable amount of critical acclaim (like 70% on rottentomatoes) and box office success. But things dont' look so good, I'm kind of worried.

    If tat's the case then this wouldn't be much of a discussion topic would it? More like a 'news update on new movie' topic

    Im always skeptical though. To make harry potters 1-4 actual kick @$$ good movies is hard to do, espicially with the lenght an amount of fantasy. But that was done greatly IMO.

    With DBZ, itll be like Harry potter 5, too long to be made into a decent movie. Itll be terrible all of the stuff left out, but with stellar fighting scenes, thatll maybe make up for the lacking stoery elements, just like the tv show!! Lol

    Spider man was good and I liked harry potter 1-4 better than number 5. The Dbz Movie better have a decent story or It won't be worth watching

    IMO Harry Potter 4 movie totally sucked compared to book. Harry Potter 5 movie wasn't bad, but you cant expect it to be good when you have to put 800 pages into 2 hours of movie.

    Anyway this is DBz forum so dont start Harry Potter discussion or something
