STUFF BAD: 2009

While I can't think of anything good about 2009 I can't forget the worst live action movie adaptation I've ever seen. It happened in 2009. And it was called Dragonball: Evolution.

DB:E was apparently made during the Writer's Strike in Hollywood, without a script or any of those things you usually have when you're making an adaptation of something from another medium. How hard could it be? We just need some kid with too much hair product and we'll add some CGI effects and cash the checks, right? And that's pretty much how much time they must have spent thinking about it. The result was a vaguely coherent kung fu movie that really didn't resemble it's source material in the slightest way. I can't think of anything good about it. It's THAT BAD. Even if you watch it as a western cinema equivalent kung fu movie IT FAILS. Go watch American Ninja or Gymkata or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. They are all BETTER then this movie.

Dragonball: Evolution. The STUFF BAD of 2009. Go ahead, tell me there was something worse.

I would not could not in a box, I would not could not with a fox, I don't know where I what or am, just will not watch DB:E with hams.

That, and Twilight (all of it) has to go.

Funny how as you get older certain things don't bother you as much, but The Year of Suck does have a certain ring to it...

Bonus Points for the 'Gymkata' reference, Danno. It reminds me that I have a buncha kung fu tapes an' stuff to send you in the new year...
