THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
It was pretty good. I gave it a 7/10.

Cooler is pretty cool :P
The "Fourth" Transformation was awesome, they should have had Frieza do something like that.
But, Cooler's goons were pretty generic. Basically just a rip off of The Ginyu Squad.

The fights were decent, but not amazing. Piccolo's fight was pretty tight. The hand stretching through the forest was awesome. Goku didn't do much,and Krillin got pwnd as usual.

Goku vs Cooler was good but not great.

So, are they gonna play it so every time they need Goku to go Super Saiyan someone/thing has to die?
It was kinda lame with the bird (btw, so now Goku's god, he can grant life?), There'll be alot of Dragon ball hunts, if that's how they're gonna do it.

Cooler's fighting was nice, but a little too similar to Frieza's.
Goku needs a new move now that he's a Super Saiyan, it's kinda gay to have him go super, but just have him do the same old moves, and make him faster and stronger.

They've lost the best part of this show...which was how Goku would always come up with a new move or strategy to win. But, now he just powers up more. That's what this entire show has become....nothing but power ups. Power, Power, and more Power!!

Back to the neverending Frieza fight, and like 14 more power ups until the next arc. Urahara Out!!

The highlight of the movie was definitely Piccillo coming in and beating the shit out of the three goons.
By far the best fight of the first five moives.

Like the others DBZ movies before the story is very simple, but the villain is pretty badass. The fights were also pretty good, better than the last 2 movies.

I've watched it subbed.

I still think the best fighting (so far) was the fighting in the second movie. Piccolo's coming was pretty cool indeed.

Out of all the films I have seen so far for DBZ (only the first five) this is easily the best so far. But why does Gohan always look so bad in these films? I hope later he looks better. But the fights were fun to watch, and Piccolo looked pretty good for once. Also, I agree that Cooler's goons were just like the Ginyu Force. Only lamer.

Also, at the end I felt almost bad for Cooler when he realised that he could have destroyed Goku years ago, and saved himself in the present.
Bum Bum Dum Dum

I'm hoping the quality of the dbz movies improves as the series continued on this one was pretty good. I enjoyed it overall

The movies are getting better! Really liked this one as well as the concept of Cooler, a nice conclusion so lets see what the next movie has to offer!

Even though the villain was more interesting and was actually somewhat tied to the main story this time, I still only barely liked this movie more than last ones (still not enough to reach a 6/10). Cooler was...cool. I had no idea that that form was his 3rd form I always though it was his base, huh. Imagine that, too bad we never got to see his 2nd or 1st form. Gohan is as annoying as ever. Hooray, no more spirit bombs. THE CYCLE IS BROKEN. Sad to see that the Goku vs Cooler fight was so short, probably has something to do with msot DBZ movies being less than an hour long.

Quoting what I posted last movie.

There's a list on Kanzenshuu that shows where each movie takes place and where you can watch them while watching DBZ despite the fact that all the DBZ movies technically take place in an alternate universe. http://www.kanzenshuu.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=573

No, it probably wasn't dead yet, so Goku just shared a little of his ki, or maybe he used healing technique similar to the one Dende uses

If he just destroyed the planet instead of going to crucify Goku personally, he would save himself in the present just the same. Coola was just too stupid and too self-confident, that's why he died.

That was his 4th form

What? Gohan is not annoying in the slightest

I know that I should had watched this film after episode 99 of the series, so I'll include my further thought in the spoiler

I don't remember if Vegeta's age was ever mentioned in the series, but according to wiki, he was born five years earlier than Son Goku, and he was working for Freeza for years before Planet Vegeta was destroyed. Although considering that films occur in alternative timeline, and that wiki is not too reliable source in the first place, it's not necessarily a fail

Why not take Chichi to camping with them? But, being as she became, she would probably just spoil the fun for everyone. Being a housewife always was Chichi's dream, and she did become one, with all typical positive and negative qualities, for the worse or for the better.

Just as I thought, Sauzer and Coola have the same voice actors as Zarbon and Freeza from DB

"Where's Gohan and the others?", "others" being Goku; "Oolong and them are helping them out", "them" being Haiya Dragon. Hilarious

When Gohan hid the last senzu bean in his belt instead of the bag, I figured that it was shown not without purpose

I finally got what Haiya Dragon's name means: it's from Japanese "hayai" - "fast"

@Tyestor probably meant that he didn't know that he was already in his 3rd form, as he only transformed once instead of 4 times.

It was quite a good episode, just as good as the previous. I liked that Coola was sent into the sun ^_^.
8/10

I understand what he meant, but that's still wrong. If you transfer 3 times, then you are in 4th form. Coola was never shown in his 3rd form. Only his 4th and 5th forms were shown

OH right @Frieza, I forgot about his form where he has those horns, he kept that form for such a short time that I forgot about it xD. So he has 4 forms and Cooler has 5. My bad :).

God everyone was right when they said these movies dont fit into the timeline of the show at all, kind of like how naruto and bleachs movies are awkward as well.

Nice movie, I really liked Piccolo's Brawl with "Cooler's Squadron". Pity that it was interrupted by Cooler :/

I guess Goku doesn't have control of SSJ, was wondering why he kept fighting and remained in his base state. The fight was kinda ended on a sour note though imo... I prefer a good fight than just a one-hit ko like that.

Also I see that Cooler had like his own variant of "Supernova" (Frieza's Planet Destroying Death Ball). I guess it's a typical Frieza Race move amongst Frieza Fighters. Possibly.
