When I first heard an Americanized Death Note movie was happening, I was . . . concerned. But because I'm *that* kind of superfan, of course I had to watch it anyway. I went in with cautious but hopeful expectations. Cautious, because setting this entire story in the US is a bad idea for several reasons (see my earlier post for some of them); but hopeful because I like Adam Wingard as a director, and I REALLY wanted to see how Lakeith Stanfield handled L. Honestly? I enjoyed it. Yelled stuff at the screen. Was sufficiently entertained for the duration of its runtime. I should add, however, that me being entertained by something is not necessarily an endorsement of its quality. There were things I felt worked about it, and other things that really did not. Let's talk about a few of them now. . .

So Netflix is adapting Death Note. In Seattle. With lots more sex and violence, apparently.



Cue up "Zetsubou Billy," grab your potato chips, and sit down, because I have Feelings about this.

I. Am. JUSTICE. )
