I made it 25 minutes in. Definitely would have rage quit once L was introduced.

Stop reinventing established content... Anime and Manga are the perfect example of how to do it. Manga does great so they practically do a one to one transfer to anime and it does even better. Deviate from the source material is a serious gamble that usually doesn't pan out. Because the original fans are the only ones interesting in seeing it.

Very few times does deviation not result in a loss in quality. Examples are Full Metal Alchemist and Brotherhood, Black Cat and if you consider Hellsing and Ultimate.

That was just an idiot director, who didn't know the source, trying to cram hundreds of hours of plot into a 90 minute movie.

Death Note is a director actively pissing on the source and ignoring everything because current year.

Exactly. Just this time I didn't have to pay a ticket price and drank during it.

I have friends sperging out over it, because Willem DeFoe is the demon. Which sounds pretty cool honestly, but every other facet is unforgivable.

I'm very tempted myself to watch just for Dafoes' take on Ryuk, but I don't want Netflix to misconstrue my watching the film as liking it.

Whatever. DaFoe is taking on too many roles. He's another Benedict Cumberbatch. Let's have some more variety please.

His voice was pretty great, but the mocap stuff wasn't. He's in the shadows half the movie and doesn't even add much.

Yeah the Japanese ones are not great either, and the CGI on Ryuk and Rem are laughable. But this movie worse somehow.

as far as anime adaptations to live movies go, they didn't do too bad.

there were a few points where it skewed from the anime plot, but all in all. they even had the same voice actors for the English dub

That movie was far more of a cartoon than anime, in every way but visual. It's fucking sad when a cartoon character is more manly than a live actor.

If they did a reversal and made an anime based off this movie. They'd have to make every male character a girl and even then it would be over the top unbelievable.

Yes, they made both main characters little crybaby piss pants. It was fucking pathetic.
