Two classic Dragon Ball Z movies remastered!
Cooler's Revenge: Saving the universe can be tiring business! So after their big battle with Frieza on Namek, Goku, Gohan, Krillin, and Oolong decide to take a little camping trip for some rest and relaxation back on Earth. But their peaceful weekend is soon interrupted by a menacing force. Frieza has a brother – Cooler! And with his powerful Armored Squadron, he has come to Earth seeking revenge. Cooler will not rest until the man who destroyed his brother is vanquished, even if that means blowing up the entire planet! Goku was able to tap into his hidden powers and transform into a Super Saiyan once before. The question is, now that the Earth is threatened by Frieza’s older (and stronger) brother – can he do it again?
The Return of Cooler: New Namek is besieged by an enormous evil entity – the Big Gete Star – a ‘living planet’ of metal that sustains itself by devouring entire worlds. Fearing for the existence of his people, Dende, the new guardian of Earth, turns to Goku and his friends for help. The Z-Fighters spring into action in an effort to save the new Namekian home world from this invading menace, but their fight won’t be easy! The Big Gete Star has an army of powerful Cyclopean Guards at its disposal, and what’s more, at the heart of this metal giant lurks an old enemy… Cooler!

The fifth and sixth Dragon Ball Z features Cooler's Revenge (Tobikkiri no Saikyou tai Saikyou--"Fantastic Ultimate Strength vs. Ultimate Strength," 1991) and The Return of Cooler (Gekitotsu!! 100 Oku Pawaa no Senshi-Tachi--"Crash!! The 10 Billion-Power Fighters," 1992) rank among the most popular titles in the long-running series. Goku, Gohan, Krillin, and Oolong set off on a camping trip, but their outing turns into a battle royal when they're attacked by the minions of Cooler. The older and nastier brother of Frieza, whom Goku destroyed in Season #3 of the broadcast series, Cooler is out for vengeance. Piccolo helps Gohan fight off the sidekicks, but the centerpiece of the film is the duel between Super-Saiyan Goku and Cooler, who looks like a purple version of Frieza. A mighty Kamehameha blast disintegrates Cooler, but a metallic version of him appears when the planet of New Namek is attacked by the monstrous space ship Big Gete Star. Dende asks Goku for help, and the Z Fighters answer the call. They're met by a squadron of giant robots, whom Gohan, Krillin, and Piccolo take out. Cooler makes the mistake of trying to drain the Saiyan life energy from Goku and Vegeta (who's arrived unexpectedly). The circuitry of the Big Gete Star overloads, enabling Goku and Vegeta to crush the robotic Cooler. Usually, Dragon Ball Z balances fantastic action with slapstick comedy, but the "Cooler" films are almost entirely devoid of humor. (Rated TV PG. suitable for ages 8 and older: violence) --Charles Solomon

You may initially wonder where the music is that made the first movie so awesome, I was almost upset but soon realized I had to change the language to English 2 to get the soundtrack to play. That doesn't affect my score, however my indifference towards the second movie is what caused me to give this Blu Ray remaster 4 stars.
Now for the video/audio. It seems like almost all the reviews for this movie release were all from fans that have seen it and loved it when they first saw it. After just getting this set, I can say that there are a few problems with it. First, the aspect ratio. I can't say this is a problem at all because I guess it really goes by preference. It really is nice to see it in 16:9 aspect ratio and fill up your whole tv, and it looks great. The remastering is really nice. But you will once in a while find yourself slightly annoyed by the fact that someones head is half off the screen. Its not a big problem but when all you can see is there chin, it really starts to annoy you. But all in all it doesn't wreck the movie. Video quality 5/5 Aspect ratio 4/5
But my biggest gripe is only for the american dub with american music. When I first saw Cooler's revenge when it first came out I was so pumped with the sweet music kicking in at the right times. It was so awesome to hear an awesome rock track start right as Goku punches Cooler in the face. But with this remastered release it seems like they screwed up the syncing for the music. Right when it was time for the first music track to start playing timed to one of Cooler's squad bashing Gohan in the back of the head I noticed that the music started about 4 to 5 seconds earlier. I thought it was just how it was supposed to be, but every other track for the rest of the movie started early. This totally wrecks the flow of the movie for me. It's a little hard to explain in a review, but trust me you'll notice the music starting early if you've seen the original version. I don't see how this happened, but it sucks. But anyway, if you just want to listen to english with Japanese music it works great. But all in all this bug gives the audio a 4/5
So overall I give this movie release a 4/5, because if you think these movies are the coolest DBZ ever like me, you'll notice these weird quirks in this version. I hope this helps.
