Nostalgia. It scares me to think that something I once loved could in actuality be a disgusting mess. I cautiously watched this movie for the first time in years. If you asked me before today I would say of course it was awesome. After today, I'm proud to say that Street Fighter II: The Movie still kicks all kinds of ass.

I watched the American dubbed release as I did when I was a child. The voice acting is actually pretty solid. Ryu occasionally sounds bit too high pitched. Every other main character sounds really good. The American version also added some rocking tunes from bands read more

Welcome to the complete and utter letdown that is Broly. For a non-canonical character, Broly receives a massive amount of praise. People often cite this movie to be the best DBZ film. Not only is Broly not the best DBZ film, Broly is just plain bad.

I don't have nostalgia for DBZ. If you do feel free to put your hands over your ears and exit the review. I first watched DBZ (as well as the original Dragon Ball) in 2015. I loved Dragon Ball and DBZ was great as well, albeit with a lot of faults. So I do enjoy the series a lot.

Ignore all these other reviews! I'm here to let you know that this movie is good! Obviously it has it's issues, but this is the first Dragon Ball Z movie to be enjoyable to watch. The first three movies simmer around mediocrity. It's not canon so feel no obligation to watch it. However, if you want some more fun Dragon Ball Z action, this is a worthwhile experience.

Let's just address this up front. Is Lord Slug a Piccolo rip off? YES! He is a Namekian. He commands an army (like Piccolo did when he originally took on Earth). He hunts the Dragon Balls to get read more

Another Dragon Ball film. Another retelling. This one combines the first and second tournament arc with the Red Ribbon arc. Then it tells it completely differently. For the curious only.

Animation seems a bit sloppy here and there. Certain facial expressions used by our beloved characters don't really match them. Bulma is just all over the place. Everything else just seems like a step down from the anime. It works, but you'll notice it as well. The English voice actors are different from the anime. A few remain the same, but big ones like Goku are wrong. They will annoy you. Goku's voice just lacks conviction. read more

Yet another retelling of the Dragon Ball tale. Have any of these been worth watching? Not in the slightest. Outside of curiosity you have no reason to watch this.

The animation in particular is shoddy. Seems like characters just don't move around as well as they should. Couple this with some awkward scene transitions. The audio is also really bad. Even on the direct streaming version from Funimation it seems like voices are way too low and certain sounds are ear piercing. It becomes annoying to watch.

Speaking of audio, yes a lot of the English voice actors are different. Goku and Bulma in particular sound awful. read more

It's better than Curse of the Blood Rubies. I would never say this is worth watching over the actual series. Nor would I even really recommend watching it unless you were just curious. As a retelling, it really adds nothing to Dragon Ball. As far as a retelling goes this one is decent.

The art and sound are more or less Dragon Ball. The animation feels a lot cleaner. Music sounds slightly better, but they did a good job of not straying too much in this aspect. Unlike Curse of the Blood Rubies you have the proper English voice actors too.

The story is a weird mixture read more

RideBack is boring. There are people that love this show, but I just cannot get behind any of it. I initially found the premise of the show interesting. Racing, terrorism, mech-bikes with arms, and so forth. Unfortunately RideBack is never interesting enough where I would suggest anyone watch it before a myriad of other anime.

The characters just never go anywhere until the very end. Sure we learn more about them along the way, but most of them don't round out until the end of the anime if at all. The protagonist in particular just stays in this annoying depressed state for most of the anime. read more

Inferno Cop is a humorous distraction and nothing more. I understand this is against the status quo, but this is how I feel. It seems like the joke surrounding this anime is that's it is the greatest worst show ever. Just be advised the show certainly can be entertaining, but it's not worth the 10 people give it.

The show features terrible animation on purpose. Involving characters barely moving. It works for the show though. The music is actually pretty good and the voice acting (especially for Inferno Cop himself) sounds very good. All of this works for the 3 minute episodes.

Inferno Cop focuses on absurd read more

The Conqueror of Shamballa plays out like a poorly written fan fiction whose only purpose is to turn the gun sideways to kill shot the series. It's not the ending that FMA fans deserved. It's not an entertaining movie. It's only purpose was to finish off the series once and for all.

Note. Before we get into it I have not seen Brotherhood to date. Also, I give the FMA 03 series a 9 out of 10. It's almost a masterpiece outside of the unfinished ending.

The problem with this movie is it's plot. The ending of FMA left a lot to be determined. Certain main antagonists read more

Bikini Warriors itself had a ton of problems. The fan service was half baked and often took away from the show itself. The show being primarily a parody of RPG tropes.

So before even going into this you don't feel attachment to the characters. They are just generic anime girls. I understand the appeal of liking a character and then wanted to see them be more sexual with one another. Freezing has a set of specials that are more or less softcore porn as well. I cared about the characters in Freezing though. So it was a neat concept to see them hyper sexual.
