Death Note (Live Action) Pt. 1

I actually had no interest in Death Note initially.  It just did not seem that it would be terribly interesting to me.  But my roommate put the Death Note live action movie on in the living room while I was out there.  I was sick at the time, and for some reason my room was making me feel a little claustrophobic, which was a new experience for me, so I just stayed in the living room figuring I would just go to sleep and it would not be an issue.  However, something about the show hooked me, and not only did I stay awake, I watched it largely fascinated.

Death Note is a good anime to be done live action.  There are almost no special effects and none of the big fight scenes that tend to show up in a lot of anime.  The only special effects there are the shinigami, and I thought they were handled very well in the live action.  The actors do a good job with their roles, and I have no complaints there (not even after now having seen the anime also).

Actual observations with spoilers in the next post.

Those Death Note Posts:

Okay, since I cannot get the longer posts to go up, I'll put it up in smaller pieces.
And no, I don' know why the posts won't go up.  It has to be the crappy internet connection at this house.  There are just some sites that won't work properly.

Next post will be how I got to watching Death Note.

Finished: Maburaho

Middle Tier:  And very near the bottom of the middle tier.  I just read Steven den Beste's review, and this is one of the few times I'll agree pretty much whole heartedly with him.

His review: http://denbeste.nu/Chizumatic/reviews/Maburaho.shtml

The show had potential at first, but squandered it with all the issues that he mentioned.  The only thing that saves this show from being bottom tier is Rin.  I do really like her, and she'll probably debut on some later version of my favorite anime females. She is so socially awkward, but she is very sweet.  And though she looks flat when dressed, she's got probably the best figure of the girls in the show.  Kuriko's breasts are larger, not the too huge of some characters or some shows, but still larger than my ideal. 

By the way, I do still want to get those Death Note posts up.

Cowboys lose

And two people are responsible.  Tony Romo and Jason Garrett.  Fuck them both.

Testing

My first Death Note post refuses to go up.  Fortunately I have it saved on my computer.  I'll get it to work eventually.

But this works.

...are you freaking serious?

I do not understand why this post went up, but the Death Note post won't. Is there a timeout or something on the network before the post uploads?  The internet access has been shit at this house the whole time.  That isn't even including the times it has been fucked up completely.  Fuck.

Seriously, this is starting to piss me off.  I'm sure it isn't this site.  It has got to be the crappy internet access as a whole.  I'll try again later.  Maybe I'll have more success.

Finished: Black Cat

Middle tier:  Black Cat was a largely entertaining, fun show with enjoyable characters.  But it could have been better than that.  The show simply does not take itself as seriously as its subject matter suggests it should be.  It is too lighthearted for much of what happens.  Not that that means everything necessarily works.  Creed utterly fails as a villain.  He is so far beyond bat-shit insane that he often fails to be a threat.  But he is the main thing that fails.  Otherwise, it is a pretty entertaining show.

Internet again

Internet again...sorta.  I tried to post my opinion on Black Cat earlier but failed.  I'll try to rewrite the post later. 

Upcoming posts include (if the internet will oblige):
Black Cat
Death Note (Live Action)
Death Note (Anime)

I do actually have some things to say about each of them so maybe I can actually work up more than my usual half of a paragraph posts.

Ah My Goddess

Thanks to Ubu, I had to find my copy of the Ah My Goddess movie and watch it again. 

I don't have much to say except it is a very pretty show.
