MS27 – Dragon Ball Super: Broly



GO, BROLY, BROLY, GO!

In the first Dragon Ball movie under the “Super” subheading, Akira Toriyama gives the fans what they want: the canonization of Broly, everybody’s favorite super saiyan, and a nearly hour-long fight sequence. What’s not to love?

MS24 – Fist of the North Star



“Hey. These belong to you?”

This week, we watch the incredibly gory, post-apocalyptic crazyfest that is Fist of the North Star (the movie). And Streamline Pictures distributed it, so the voice acting adds to the film’s overall cheesy charm.
