Dragonball ada tujuh biji semuanya.

last night, me, daddy and mummy of course on movie's day, we went to star cineplax watching Dragonball evolution. As usual, movies day of course there were so many people. Actually, we use to watching at Riverside cineplax but we choose star cineplax adding it's early than the riverside. 8.45pm. until 10.30 i think. We came early, about 8.00pm. Based on the popular Japanese manga created by Akira Toriyama whose work spawned best-selling graphic novels, video games and a phenomenally successful television series, "Dragonball" centres on the heroic Goku, a powerful warrior who protects the Earth from an endless stream of rogues bent on dominating the Universe and controlling the mystical objects from which the film takes its name.

This i set for you the review.

For a comic adaptation, "Dragonball Evolution" has quite a promising future for sequels. The awesome opening scene gives you this impression, with the right effects and perfect timing.

However, "Dragonball" might not do enough justice to fans of Goku, who blasts out his super saiya power, taking the baddies down. Instead, he is portrayed as a typical teenager, having problems within the school social circle and yet in the end gets the chick without having to break a sweat. His definitive bad hair trademark is also pretty much compromised by Justin Chatwin's good looks.

Apart from Goku, there isn't much about character building in the story. Much is apparent to the "Dragonball" fan but plenty is left out for newcomers who don't know the story. Where do they come from and to whom are they related? Nothing is mentioned about that. Maybe that's director James Wong wanting us to use our imaginative mind to draw a link between these characters, no?

Here, Picollo played by James Marsters looks like his evil twin from Jim Carrey's "The Mask." Again, his background is very much generated from scripts instead of a decent flashback about himself. Hong Kong superstar Chow Yun-Fat plays Master Roshi, the funny and perverted but enlightened character. Despite his age, Chow's persona is still as flawless as his younger "Prison On Fire" days.

"Dragonball" is very much just martial arts and tonnes of effects. Do not expect much artsy-fartsy cinematography or boring two-angle scenes. In "Dragonball," James Wong's effort in experimenting with different kinds of effect can best be noted in some super cool slow motion capture.

Sometimes it is rather annoying watching a non-martial artist performing in a martial arts movie. They look like they're kicking dust. Talent casting should give some emphasis on those who can really kick butt instead of those with just good looks. In today's industry, good looks aren't enough. Besides, there are lots of talents out there waiting to be discovered!

This movie quite interesting because the main character which is supposed to be goku and bulma were JAPANESE, but in this evolution, they were from white skin people.

From the top of Medan Pelita. wuu
can u imagine how can we stuck byt the time 10.30pm.. -,-

By the way, about the picture that i posted just now, its what happen to Kuching last night. After we finished watching the movie, and kite STUCK . Totally stuck. Jam for a half and hour. They are so many people. And my dad asking the woman that work as a cashier that taking the money for paying the coupon. Waaaaa... today is Tua Pek Kong birthday. hahahaha.. piss off **. i'm just like whoahhh.. How can I don't know ley. This temple just situated in the heart of Kuching.

Located at Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, the century-old Chinese temple is the oldest of its kind in Kuching. It is particularly famous for its Wang Kang celebration to commemorate the spirit of the dead.

The temple was supposed to have been built as early as 1843 but official records only recognised its existence in 1876 when temple devotees in the community made various repairs and renovations to it. It is a 118 years old Buddhist temple. The oldest temple in Kuching. wow!
