Death Note Live Action: Hollywood Style

I decided to see if there’s any news about the apparent live action by Hollywood and here’s what  got:

In April 2009, it was announced that WB had acquired the rights to make a live-action version of the manga, and had hired Charley and Vlas Parlapanides to adapt the script. The new film will be based upon the original manga series rather than the existing live-action films.

It’s also in Anime News Network.

I know it’s too late to post this since it’s been 4 months but if there’s people out there like me who don’t know, well, at least there’s another site that will help them know!

Death Note: The Last Name

It’s been more than a year since I last saw this film, but it’s still fresh from my memory. I can still remember what happened… But sadly, I couldn’t give a good review because I didn’t pay attention to anything else other than Light’s and L’s scenes.

I just watched it again just now. This time, I can give a better review.

Story wise, I think this is better than the manga or the anime. I prefer the war to be between Kira and L. I hated it when Mello and Near where suddenly in it. I just think that since they started it, they should finish it- and that’s what this film did! Kira died in front of L and even so, L still lost in a way. Aside from the clever and cunning steps Kira and L takes to stop each other, the lines : I too will be happy if you’re not Kira” and such, still makes my heart beat faster. I love how they care about each other and even though they are enemies, there’s still a connection other than that. This is what makes this story-anime, manga, live action all included- not just any typical justice boys story.

The actors, especially Kira’s and L’s, were definitely the best choice to act the parts. Of course Misa is also good, but she lacks acting skills. As for the others, well they don’t really matter for me but when I notice them, they look right, not weird.

Over all even though it’s not that long, the film deserves a 8.5/10 and if ever I said that it deserves less, sue me. As for the first movie, I am confident that I gave it a 9.

I love you Kira and L. See you soon.

Lelouch is introduced in the first episode of the series as a student of Ashford Academy high school, where he is a member of its student council. A brilliant thinker who is quite talented at chess, he lives with his younger sister, Nunnally, with their maid, Sayoko Shinozaki, at a house situated within the compounds of Ashford Academy, where they are looked after by the Ashford family.
Lelouch is soon swept into the conflict between the Britannia Empire and the pockets of resistance which oppose it when he accidentally boards a truck being used by Japanese resistance operatives. Within the truck is a capsule holding C.C., who sacrifices herself to save him from the military forces trying to recapture her. When it seems as if her sacrifice was pointless, C.C. suddenly touches his hand and offers him the “Power of the King”, the mythical power of Geass. The Geass manifests itself in him as the power of absolute obedience, which allows him to make people obey his orders without question.        

With his new power, Lelouch begins his rebellion against the Empire, forming the Order of the Black Knights and takes up the identity of Zero to lead them, becoming a revolutionary and gaining popular support amongst the people.

Lelouch, like many other anime characters and real people had experienced a harsh childhood. Well, what else can you call a childhood where you see your mother murdered? Huh?! You can say that that is how he became who he is. But I like him like that. Lelouch might seem like a lunatic for some people, but for me he’s the kind of guy that would do everything to protect something. He acts strong but he’s fragile inside. I especially like him more when Shirley’s father died along with a lot of people and he still wants to continue so those people won’t die in vain. Just like what Ed Elric of  Full Metal Alchemist said “Sacrifice are needed to accomplish something.” So for me, what he did, even if it is killing, is right and justified. And it’s not like he did it for himself. He did it for Nunally. Aside from being selfless, he’s also very hot and super inteligent, the kind of guy I really like!
       

I really hope there’s a season 3 or a movie… I just need to know he’s alive. i seriously cried when I watched him ‘die’. He even pretended to be bad to free the people from their hatred and bitterness. And even though it seems at times that he’s being cold to some of his comrades we all know that he doesn’t mean it. I was really pissed when the people are cheering when he was dying. I seriously want to believe that he got the Geass sigil but the right now I’d just read from Wikipedia: Writer Ichiro Okouchi explains that Lelouch’s death was the price Lelouch needed to pay to create his better world. Well, at least you’re with Shirley now… but I really want you to be with your Witch.
I really love you Lelouch. And this is not a fan talking but a girl. Well, I guess people will say I’m not normal. I’m not. that’s for sure!
That’s all I wrote when I first did this. So I’ll put something else. This is already posted in meinliebe.

Lelouch’s Story deserves a  9/10. He wanted justice. He fought to have it. There were times when he wavered, like everybody else, showing that contrary to what the people believe, he’s not a monster. 

Personality. He’s very intelligent yet he’s not good at sports. He’s very tough yet fragile. Come on, doesn’t that deserve a 9/10 too? 

Art. He’s very handsome but there were times where he’s not that handsome. So 8/10.

Lastly, I just need to say this, I really really admire him for taking all the blame and hatred of this world with his death. And, seriously, when Nunally was shouting, screaming, for his death, I cried. And I was in a public place! A library! I’m really happy that some people, understood who he really is.
And, I’m sorry but I also have to say this. I really really hate it when someone he cares for dies. Euphemia, his first love died partly because of him. But I know he didn’t want that to happen. Shirley too. Why did the Rolo kill her? But Rolo died for Lelouch… so I guess he’s forgiven. Uh-oh. I’m giving spoilers! Sorry!!
