The Flop House: Episode #52 – Dragonball: Evolution

If this is Dragonball: Evolution, we’d hate to see Dragonball: Neanderthal (this joke contributed by Milton Berle’s secret joke file). Meanwhile, Dan tries to fill Elliott’s tiny shoes, Stuart discusses the career of Ernie Hudson, and Nigel sounds 10% smarter than either of them.

0:00 – 0:36 – Introductions and Theme
0:37 – 3:47 – We introduce our guest co-host, Nigel Wood.
3:48 – 29:50 – We discuss 90 minutes of bright colors, loud noises, and disconnected action, in a DVD mislabeled “Dragonball: Evolution.”
29:51 – 33:23 – Final Judgments Stu – bad-bad, Nigel bad-bad, Dan – actually kind of enjoyed it
33:24 – 34:30 – Station identification
34:31 – 41:46 – The sad bastards recommend.
45:47 – 45:02 – Goodbyes, theme, and outtakes.

    I propose Flop House episodes become daily.

    Scratch that, hourly.

  2. Dan McCoy says:

    We’ll be happy to oblige if you can pay our steep speaking fees.

  3. wiggie says:

    It just sounded like Dragonball sucked a little bit of Dan’s soul out…you can’t let that happen daily.

  4. neoncp says:

    Sure, I can pay in space bucks.

  5. Jomari says:

    I must disagree with the calling of Japanese cartoons as Shi%-$. The film did not hold to the them or essence of the manga/comic or cartoon/anime. But the movie was definitely a flop. No bearing on the original producys.

  6. Dan McCoy says:

    Well, to be clear, I’m the only one who dislikes all anime (I just have a clock against the art style and the reduced frame rate, which I feel makes the animation look herky-jerky, even with the top directors like Miazaki). Stuart and Elliott like some anime a lot.

    • Googergieger says:

      Clearly a bajillion years too late here, but Satoshi Kon movies are amazing. His movies work even if they weren’t anime. Basically he’s the guy Aronofsky ripped off to become an acclaimed director.
