I don't really know what the deal is with Ben 10, but I know they previously sen ... More >>

For years, I dreamed of a live-action Dragon Ball flick, but then I was the guy who owned all the mangas and watched that ancient cheap live-action version of Dragon Ball: The Spirits Within. I used to watch the show before ... More >>
