Trailer Probe : Dragonball The Movie
© Joe Crowe
October 03, 2008

Items of geekity interest should be only two minutes long. Trailers make us laugh. They make us cry. They work so hard to make us happy.

Trailer Probe rates the geek explosion content, how much our cortex is combusted with a volley of geekitude, and dork disengagement level is reasons you won't spaz.


Geek explosion content: Chow Yun Fat!

Spike from Buffy!

Live action spiky hair on Goku!

Live action Bulma!

The ladies are good to look at, if you like real-life women dressed provocatively instead of drawn in a subpar anime way.

Stuff blows up!

Flippy-doo fighting!

Dork disengagement level: Kissing a girl in Dragonball Z? Is kissing allowed?

Goku wears a live-action version of the yellow Goku outfit he wears on the show. I think. It's only onscreen for a second. Is this the skull-free Punisher shirt for the new millennium?

Goku is not a blonde American of somewhat normal height!

I bet in this movie there is way too much talking, and not enough power-ups and screaming.

Geek explosion level: 700,000 geek parts per million. If you're in the How Dare They Do Something With My Favorite Thing club for Dragonball Z then trailer won't change your mind.

Unless you like things that look cool.
