Before the Ball

I am faced with the arduous task today of sitting down to a viewing of the newest geek movie, Dragonball Evolution. I don't expect to like it, but I walk into the theater with an open mind. You know if you've been reading long enough that I take movies based on their own merit without having the need to make a carbon-copy of the source material. In this case, I have never watched a single episode of Dragonball Z simply because I could never be convinced that it was a good show. So I have absolutely no source material to reference at all. That could be either good or bad for the film-making crew. I hope they surprise me and come up with an engaging story, but my hopes are not up.

Pray for me...
