    BobSamurai Anime Reviews are you a big fan of Death Note?

    Can we just pretend it doesn’t exist? It doesn’t even deserve attention.

    it’s not even that it’s an American adaptation to me idc if they were all white at. it’s that it looks really rushed. if it was a tv show and not a movie I would probably be more interested. I mean it’s still using the plot of death note just with an American twist. so how the hell are you going to fit a 50 something episode anime or a 12 or 13, (cant remember the exact number) volume manga into a 1:47 length movie. I can’t see this being anything other than rushed. unless it’s multiple parts. not that interested in most of the casting decisions either.

    Why? Why do people insist on ruining great things? I honestly can’t think of one live action movie that was made from an anime that is worth watching.

    Why can’t they just make a slow and methodical movie instead of a action thriller?

    People will cry whitewashing always. It’s best to ignore these people. All sjws in general really. You’ll be a much happier person.

    I feel like Light has definitely been miscast. L seems cool though

    Berserk is alright. Hunter X Hunter is worse for hiatus and quality though. Kind of shocked that the author keeps derping with the fanbase compared to Miura playing idolmaster.

    Well all I have to say is I hope Willem Dafoe will do a good job voicing Ryuk since he is a pretty talented actor.

    People are already talking smack and they haven’t even seen shit yet.
    The guy behind this did some pretty decent stuff, I’m giving it a chance. Hopefully it’ll be more than 1 movie though

    If only those special effects on Ghost In The Shell was used on something better, not it’s just going to be overshadowed by the original’s godly animation and cinematography, by the trailer it seems to be mostly remaking shitier versions of amazing shots

    He not called Light Yagami. He going to be Light Tanner. Also Misa will be changed to Mia

    Pros and Cons about the Death Note movie:

    Pros: William Dafoe as Ryuk’s voice actors

    Cons: I’ll let everyone else answer this for me.

    Jesus you guys are overreacting. This movie is its own story riffing off the original Death Note plot set in what looks to be Seattle in the US. If they wanted it to be a live-action remake they wouldn’t have showed-off a Ferris wheel collapsing in the trailer which never happened in the original story.

    Do you really want the same story regurgitated again and again? This is a chance to make a Death Note inspired film in its own unique way.

    Only an original plot can salvage this. The Death Note could have been dropped anywhere. Perhaps this is just a telling of events had it wound up in America.

    You’re Next and The Guest were fun but those are more horror trash movies
    Doesn’t look like the Director can handle this type of genre

    You can pause it at a very brief moment and it shows Ryuk’s silhouette, and idk if they’ll make like the face cg but the rest of that body didn’t look cg to me…

    I’m glad you’re being logical Bob, about the Death Note film and not saying "THIS FILM IS GOING TO BE GARBAGE BECAUSE OF SKIN COLOR BLAH BLAH"

    I’m looking forward to it. Hopefully it turns out good

  28. BlackCriticGuy
    February 4, 2020 @ 11:41 am

    yeah the action worries me too. What made Death Note work so well it that it was a compelling story told in the form of a battle of minds, the clash of ideologies. I hope the film can also portray that.

    and about berserk It makes sense as to why it’s not gonna be finished for a long time considering the amount of hard work goes into each and every single panel of it

    I think L will be the hardest character to get right. I wonder if it will be like the JP Movie where L beats Light.

    It’s an american adaptation, of course it’s not going to have Japanese people in the film. The target audience for the film is american people which is mostly white. Besides when japan does a film adaptation of an american film/show do they hire a bunch of white people to play the characters in the show?…. No they don’t so if people are going to be outraged about this they should also be outraged when japan does the exact same thing!

    I never understood how someone supposedly as intelligent as Light Yagami could fall for cheap bait of TV broadcast.
    If all you would need to do is go online if other cities get same thing … -.- I liked anime. But this is SOOOOOOO dumb.
    And he killing police force is dumb. And falling for L schemes is dumb. And not using Misa for "fun" is dumb.
    Light is Dumb. Good he died. The End.

    my friend who keeps me update with this film because we are both excited but also worried about it too, but I found interesting is that Willem Dafoe is Ryuk

    Probably better than japans live action version, but I was very baffled. Everything looks great expect what the fuck is all of that action? There is going to be a cliche romance? Where the fuck is the real star of the show, L? They will probably fucking ruin the tension that hooked everyone… until the original ending and second season, there is nothing to ruin.

    I’m excited for the movie. 50/50 chance it’ll be good or bad. Willem Dafoe sounds amazing, will most likely be the best part of the movie.

    I don’t really care about the death note netflix show. I might watch it depending on how people like it. I’m definitely excited about Berserk though its been like 5 months I can’t wait to see what happens. I also picked up some shirts from the link bob They had some great stuff on sale. Thanks for that and great vid bob!

    The change of race is worth it for L. Keith Stanfield is just perfect for this role if you’ve seen his work in Atlanta. And I have faith in this with Adam Wingard directing and Netflix behind it. Could be the best live action anime adaptation of all time

    February 4, 2020 @ 12:03 pm

    The casting is CANCER. How the hell are you gonna cast a Token black guy to play L???

    February 4, 2020 @ 12:03 pm

    I can’t tell why they feel the need to butcher anime / manga in these adaptations is it a lack of respect for the original content or the fan Base in general ? I don’t know it’s just frustrating.
