TOP FIVE COOLEST ITEMS IN DRAGON BALL

I'm sure most of you grew up loving the action packed Anime series Dragon Ball from "Dragon Ball" to "Dragon Ball Z Kai". It is a highly successful animated series adapted from the manga of the same name created by the legendary Akiro Toriyama. The series was first aired in 1986 and it was considered as one of the most influential anime which contributed a lot in boosting Japanese Animation's popularity in Western Culture. This is the anime that brought some classic characters like Son Goku, Gohan, Trunks and more. Furthermore, the anime have also shown us some iconic items and gadgets that only exist in the Dragon Ball universe. Listed below are my personal picks of five of the coolest items in Dragon Ball. Have fun!
TOP FIVE COOLEST ITEMS IN DRAGON BALL
Editor's Note: This entry is listed subjectively. 

TOP 5 COOLEST ITEM IN DRAGON BALL
"HOI-POI CAPSULES"
The time period where Dragon Ball take place is quite confusing because it shows both signs of being in a Stone Age and a futuristic environment at the same time where robots and other sophisticated items exist and one of them are the so-called Hoi-Poi Capsules. They are invented by Dr Brief (father of Bulma) of Capsule Corporation. They are meant to make objects compact and easy to transport. Capsules can store items and buildings in an unimaginable size and shape.  It can transform itself into hovercars, an entire home, a vehicle, and a whole lot more. 

TOP 4 COOLEST ITEM IN DRAGON BALL
"POTARA EARRINGS"
Potara Earrings are typically worn by the Supreme Kais. It is an item that can be worn either by one or two person. It is an extremely powerful item that has the ability to fuse two people into a single entity. It also gives the wearer an exceptional skills. Unlike the Fusion Dance, however, the resulting fusion made by Potara is permanent. One of the most prominent fusion made is the series is when Goku fused with Vegeta to from Vegito. Even though the result is usually permanent, Goku and Vegeta managed to separate themselves from one another. 

TOP 3 COOLEST ITEM IN DRAGON BALL
"HYPERBOLIC TIME CHAMBER"
Remember when Cell is too powerful for Goku and his team? This is where Hyperbolic Time Chamber helped them to become more powerful. Inside the Time Chamber, spending one year is equivalent to one day which gave Goku and his son enough time to train themselves and making them more powerful without spending too much time in real world. Imagine yourself doing all the things you want without taking much of your time in real world. Spending 6 hours inside the time chamber will only consume a minute in the real world and that is good enough to watch three movies consecutively LOL. 

TOP 2 COOLEST ITEM IN DRAGON BALL
"SENZU BEANS"
Get beaten so bad? Worrying much about your bleeding wounds? Well, worry no more because Senzu beans can heal everything in no time. Senzu Beans are mystical beans with immense rejuvenation properties. If they are eaten, the consumer's energy and physical health are restored to the fullest which made them a great asset in every battle. On top of that, Senzu Beans can make you feel full for almost ten days. These beans, however, are not easily attainable as they only grow in Korin Tower. It can also restore those amputated parts of bodies too. In reality, these beans could be a great help in medicine. Who knows, it can cure some form of cancers too. 

THE COOLEST ITEM IN DRAGON BALL
"DRAGON BALLS"
Okay, I don't think this item is really surprising to reach the top spot. Dragon Balls are undeniably the coolest and probably the most powerful items in Dragon Ball universe. Anyone who gathers seven magical crystal balls allow him to summon the Eternal Dragon Shenron who has the ability to grant wishes to anyone who collected the crystals with no limitations at all. You can request to resurrect a person or an entire community or people. Some are even aiming for it to grant them an extremely powerful abilities and immoralities.  You can even use it to erase someone's memory too. After the wishes were granted, the balls will be thrown to different directions again and this is the reason why you have to arm yourself with a radar to locate them.

Other Notable Items in Dragon Ball includes the Power Pole, Clinton Cloud, Bansho Fan, The Great Saiyaman Watch, Broly's Ring and more.

TOP FIVE BEST STEPHEN KING MOVIES

Stephen King is undeniably one of the iconic writers of all time. He managed to publish 50 novels (including those masterpiece under the pen name Richard Bachman) and nearly 200 short stories.  Most of his works were adapted into movies (and comics too) and in fact he is considered as one of the most adapted authors in films along with other writers like Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe, Hans Christian Andersen, The Brothers Grimm and more. Listed below are five of my personal picks of Stephen King movies. Have fun!
TOP FIVE BEST STEPHEN KING MOVIES
Author's Note : This entry is listed subjectively. 

TOP 5 BEST STEPHEN KING MOVIE
"CARRIE"
I have watched the film several times and it's weird to say that I never get tired of it even though I know what's gonna happen if Carrie stand up on that stage. It's probably one of the most iconic Stephen King movies of all time and every scene is almost unforgettable even though the trailer actually made the film a little surprising. They said that Carrie's film adaptation is made way better than SK's book because it adds substance and style to it. Some of the best scenes in the movie includes the massacre in the gym hall where Carrie merely kills everyone. The moment where she kills her mom by telepathically moving kitchen knives is simply unforgettable. Oh and ending is quite a surprise too. 

TOP 4 BEST STEPHEN KING MOVIE
"THE SHINING"
"Here's comes Johnny!!" Well, who would forget that epic moment where Jack Torrence tried to kill his family. It is one iconic film indeed and the scene is being used in popular culture. The line also made it through our list of Top Five Most Remarkable Movie Lines. The film was highly embraced by critics praising Jack Nicholson for his very convincing performance as the psychopathic and evil possessed Jack Torrence. Stephen King, however is unhappy about Stanley Kubrick's film version as it made the main character less sympathetic and the ending was drastically changed as well. 

TOP 3 BEST STEPHEN KING MOVIE
"MISERY"
One of my personal favorites. I started admiring Kathy Bates after seeing her in this epic film adaptation of Stephen King's Misery. The story if about the writer Paul Sheldon who was saved by her ultimate fan Annie Wilkes. However, it turns out that Annie is more of a Psycho and a serial killer which made Sheldon's life a living hell. What I like about most Stephen King's movies is that they tend to scare not in a gory way. It makes you jump out of your chair due to some intense and suspense moments. One of the epic scene here is when Annie breaks Sheldon's ankles by smashing them with a mallet.. ouch!! Kathy Bates , by the way, won an Oscar from this film and it is a record breaking one because Oscars never paid attention to horror films but Bates gave a stunning performance that gave her an Oscar nod. 

TOP 2 BEST STEPHEN KING MOVIE
"THE GREEN MILE"
A Tom Hanks film directed by Frank Darabont and a derived from a Stephen king's novel? There's no doubt , this film is such a blast. I never thought that this film will make me cry and yeah I admitted that LOL. The characters were freaking awesome and they managed to deliver their roles very well and highly convincing. This is a three-hour film and I thought it will bore me to death but every single moment here is simply remarkable. The execution of John Coffey is such a heartbreaking scene and when Percy becomes mentally ill is such an overwhelming moment for me LOL. 

 THE  BEST STEPHEN KING MOVIE
"THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION"
What I like about this film is that it is very unpredictable (perhaps for me who haven't read the book yet). The character development is what I love the most. Remember when Prisoners was not really treated properly. They were treated very inhumanely until Andy started to make a move, changing the prison into an all new atmosphere where friendship and hope is possible. I also learned that Stephen King took Leo Tolstoy's "God Sees The Truth But Waits" as an inspiration that's why there are some sort of similarities. It happens to be one of my favorite short stories too (I remember myself playing Makar way back in high school). The revelation at the end of the film is such an epic moment that gives me goosebumps. Frank Darabont also directed this film along with other Stephen King movies like The Mists.
