FW MOVIE PICK: DEATH NOTE

Death Note

Dragon Ball Evolution is still the worst live-action adaptation of a popular anime series; but this here is also even more insulting! A high school student named Light Turner discovers a mysterious notebook that has the power to kill anyone whose name is written within its pages, and launches a secret crusade to rid the world of criminals. Wow they seriously ruined the main character I think I’m gonna cry. I hated the incoherent writing, pacing, and numerous changes from the source material such as its increased level of blood and gore or whitewashing all the characters; however, Wingard’s directiing, production design and the cast were noteworthy, particularly Dafoe’s performance as Ryuk (the only character they did right). But it still sucks. An unworthy recommendation to  the fans!
