    (Netflix) Death Note US remake



    http://www.upcominghorrormovies.com/movie/death-note

    Based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power; if the owner inscribes someone's name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with his new godlike abilities, the young man begins to kill those he deems unworthy of life.

    The Netflix original film is directed by Adam Wingard (Blair Witch, You’re Next) and stars Nat Wolff (Paper Towns), Margaret Qualley (The Leftovers), Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out), Paul Nakauchi (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End), Shea Whigham (American Hustle) and Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man).


    Looks alright. I never watched the anime, but I caught the movies and really liked'em. I'm open to this remake, especially since it's on Netflix, but I'm not expecting much.

    Lost in translation.

    Fuuuuck this.

    I mean...okay, MAYBE I'll watch it. But expectations are very low. Lower than the likelihood of a person having the power to kill anyone on the planet just by thinking of their face and writing their name down.

    They're gonna mess up Light's character. In the original, he's supposed to be an overachieving model student with a very promising future. This trailer is short, yeah, but from what I can tell, it's like he's just another angst-filled outcast looking for his place in the world.

    The character of Light would actually fit as an American very well.
    That said, as i originally stated: :lost in translation".
    You know there is a subtlety to this series that Hollywood would not be able to duplicate. Think oldboy.
    They wont explain the Japanese mythology behind it, they will turn it into a good guy/bad guy thing, etc. Hell, from the trailer, unless it was improperly cut, it looks like an action flick and the show was everything but action and by changing that, you're completely changing the point of the show.
