Dragon Ball Z: Battle Of Gods. The latest DBZ animated film to come out after a long hiatus, this movie was met with lots of expectations. As a canon film, it all but erases GT from existence, and washes away the taint of Evolution. It contains a great blend of humor and action that shows Toriyama still has it. Some time has passed since the end of the series. The film introduces us to the God of Destruction, Beerus. He’s the one who ordered Freiza to destroy Planet Vegeta. After many years of sleeping, he awakes to the news of Goku defeating Freiza and becoming a Super Saiyan, reminding himself of a prophecy he was told years before that he would have an arch-rival in the form of a Super Saiyan God. Beerus and is aide Weiss travel to ask the remianing Saiyans about said god, however it is Bulma’s <classified> birthday, and her party is in full swing, with all the cast there. The animation is great. It’s a step up for sure from the recent Kai series with many scenes reanimated. The music was fairly decent, though I am not a big fan of the new rendition of Cha-la Head Cha-la. Both English and Japanese voice acting is strong as ever, save Japanese Goku. I hate hearing woman-voiced Goku. Just my personal annoyance and being used to the English actors. There was about 20 minutes of extra footage in the new Directors Cut on the disc, and it’s mostly non-combat stuff. Really, it’s mostly set around Bulma’s birthday, which has some great character interactions. I’ll give this a 9/10. It’s a great DBZ film, and a good animated film. For a story with a cookie cutter plot, it runs with things well. Anyone who was a fan of DBZ is obliged to wacth this film. Funimation released this on DVD and Blu-Ray. The BD release looks excellent. It’s definitely the format to go with. You can find this easily at HMV, Future Shop, and Wal-Mart, though I’ll keep with the Rightstuf link for continuity purposes. http://www.rightstuf.com/cgi-bin/catalogmgr/9x9n=TC1zoXczAdmhD/browse/item/103249/4/0/0

Berserk Golden Age Arc 3: The Advent. This movie, based on the Berserk manga, concludes the Golden Age arc from the manga, and has a lot more material in it than the anime showed, with screentime for both the Skull Knight and the elf Puck. I&#8217;ll try to not post some spoilers, for those who haven&#8217;t for some reason watched the other films, the older anime, or read the manga. The film takes place a year after the events of the second film. The Band of the Hawk runs a rescue operation to save one of their own imprisoned in an underground dungeon. After the rescue, however, things begin to take hold that will determine the fate of both the Hawk and the entire world. Kinda vague summary, but the entire movie is reliant on seeing the prevous ones, or know the series. Just like the previous films, the weak points in the film are the use of obvious contrasting computer animation, and the weaker soundtrack compared to the anime series. The voice acting and 2D animation are excellent. The Japanese cast is good, but the English dub is strong. I am glad to see the outtakes return, in hilarious fashion. Included on the disc is also the outtakes for the first film, which were sorely missing from that set. I&#8217;ll give this movie a 9/10. There could have been a few changes, though from the hinting shown, I do hope they continue making these films, animating all the way to the current Falconia arc. Definitely give these movies a watch, and then read the manga to get caught up. Lucky the manga schedule is so irregular it&#8217;s easy to catch up and wait months for new material. The movie has been released on both DVD and Blu-Ray. The Blu-Ray quality is excellent and I highly recommend that format for the films. http://www.rightstuf.com/cgi-bin/catalogmgr/ynttXC9A9RJjDimZAs/browse/item/101121/4/0/0
