Title: Death Note: The Last Name

The trailer for the second movie looks pretty good.  I still haven't found a torrent for the first movie yet though.   :(

From the looks of the trailer, the first movie made it through about three or four volumes of the manga.  I can't wait to see these.

The first movie was good, so I don't see why this one would be any different. I'm pretty sure they filmed them in succession, and I love the cast. I'm TO'ed that it is being released in November, but maybe I will be able to snag the DVDs this summer.

You're right DK, however they cover those volumes with some major points rearranged or missing.

I'm more excited about the Death Note anime that Madhouse is making.  Favorite manga + Favorite studio can only be amazing.

I want to see the first movie so badly.

If any of you guys find a good subtitled torrent, PM me immediately.  Immediately.

And then you need to PM me, dheu.

I was just looking at some of the trailers for the first movie on youtube the other day.  It looks really good.  I didn't even know there was a second movie until now though.  :o

Holy crap.
 
I've just spoiled myself and found out how the second movie ends, but I don't care.
 
I need to see the two movies, NOW.
 
I curse my non-fluency, which places movies like this - in other words, dialogue-driven - outside of my capability for understanding.
 
A non-spoiling spoiler so you'll understand my excitement: All I will say is that the second movie ends how the manga should have ended.
 
Damn, damn, damn.
 
I'm tempted to just download the raw and suck it up through the dialogue.

That is if you can find the raw (and if you can, PM me).

If I'm catching the hint you are hinting towards, the ending of the movie must be pretty good. That, or it is fan induced and fueled by yaoi-parodies and moralists.

Yaoi-parodies? Que?
 
Quote from: Spoiler for Death Note 2
All I'm talking about is the satisfaction of L beating Light instead of dying halfway through the story.
 
God, I hated that in the manga. All that build-up and awesome mental battling between the two, and he dies.
 
I'm absolutely thrilled to see that there's a version in which he doesn't.

And I meant the raw for the (shortened wryyy  television version of the) first movie, which I haven't seen yet. The second movie's raw isn't out yet by a long shot.

Make sure you get the good one. There is one sub (the first that was released) that blew really really bad. The second one is really good.

I must say the movies were pretty good, though i only wish they were able to include more from the anime/manga plot and not squash like two to three seasons into the first one.

Yeah, that was the only thing I wish they'd done differently.  Hell, I would have sat through three hours for each movie if they'd just shown more L-Light interaction, and more wicked deductions between the two.  That would have been damn cool.

As long as they kept the same ending.

There's a prequel about L coming out, I think in 2008 or something.  I need that movie, too, and it hasn't even come out yet.

Don't worry; I'll make sure I will review it first before anyone else. That should make my Death Note double reviews complete. Wee!

You're so evil.  You don't know how long I was waiting to see the movies so that I could review them.  I was so excited to finally get them and watch them, and I was typing up wonderful reviews..... until I remembered that they'd already been done.  BY YOU.

And now the L prequel too!!   wryyy

You suck.

In my random anime-related adventures I checked out the first Death Note movie playing at the ImaginAsian theater in Los Angeles last weekend. I usually frown upon animes that are overly hyped or too mainstream, but I must admit I enjoyed the first movie quite a bit and am planning on seeing the sequel and the series eventually.

For those interested, ever heard of that "Fathom Events" stuff they advertise at AMC Theaters?

Well they'll be playing Death Note: The Last Name at select theaters (alot of AMCS) on October 15 (my birthday! don't forget!) and 16 for those interested =P I know I'll be there!
