Aww...I would have gone to see Broly, Bardock, and Fusion Reborn if they weren't dubbed only. Sadness.

Oh well, have fun to those who go.

I wonder if these are newly remastered or just Orange Box versions carried over.

It's the Double/Triple Feature versions so it's the latter with the Bardock special cropped to 16:9.

Will definitely try to see these, though I wish they picked something besides Fusion Reborn. That's probably my least favorite DBZ movie.

Bio-Broly is way worse.

Anyways with the cost of these kind of events and these being short movies, it really should be all 3 together rather than separete.

I wonder why they chose those three movies?

Only care about the original English released movie anyway. I don't care what anyone says, the movies are GREATLY enhanced by its American rock soundtrack.

Maybe in your opinion, but I thought Bio-Broly was at least somewhat entertaining with it giving a bit of focus to Android 18 and the supporting characters being ever-so-slightly interesting. Fusion Reborn wasn't awful, it was just a drag, and I only wait for it to end. The funny scenes with Hitler are about all that make it worth watching. Frieza returning to life to fight Goten and Trunks was an interesting idea, but it was absolutely wasted, with the character basically being a glorified cameo.

The first Broly is actually the longest original DBZ movie at 70 minutes, which is basically feature length.

I'm not sure what my favorite of the actual films are, but I enjoy the two TV specials far more. They add a lot of depth to the characters and show as a whole, and they tell interesting, substantial, and engaging stories... all unlike the 13 original theatrical films, which are enjoyable, but aren't much else (unabashedly so).
