So, apparently Netflix has just decided to make a live action Death Note series. What are your thoughts on this matter, /a/?

It's just a movie.
It's already out.
Critics are tearing it apart.

They'll never beat the Japanese live action Death Note. Western countries should stop adapting anime into movies in my opinion

The reviews are already out. Apparently it's terrible and some people tried to accuse it of white washing even though it had a token black guy.

Regardless, it looks like they ditched all the themes and atmosphere that made death note great (strategic story telling) for easy action and edgy scenes.

Shit is trash and you will have fags that will try to defend this shit too. Some tried with dbevolution.

The only us live action adaptation that would even make sense is Black Lagoon.

And Revy is Chinese American and only speaks english plus the cast is actually diverse so there would no reason to force in in. And Rock needs to be Japanese it's part of his character.

See. My Problem is, that they seem to want to tell the American Version of Death Note. Which actually would be interesting. In my Opinion they should simple done that, a new death note, a new shinigami and other characters, and doing there own thing with it.

Before anyone makes the asinine reply about 'yellow washing', I'm going to say this: There's no shortage of Asian/Black/Hispanic/etc actors in America, while the same can't be said about White actors in Japan! White actors who can act well in Japanese in contrast to Asians who can act in English also being a point.

1. The people who have already seen Death Note, both the series and Japanese live action film(s) aren't interested in seeing this awful American remake
2. The Americans who have never seen Death Note, neither the series or Japanese live action film(s) wouldn't be able to get anything from the story because of it's truncated nature

The only way to make it appealing to Western audiences who don't know Death Note would be to change fundamental things about the story for the sake of brevity. This will invariably make it shitty for everyone watching it.

That being said I'm looking forward to watching it just because I already know it's going to be dumpster juice.

It can work. Just must be done right. But that's too much hard work for Hollywood.
>>
>>161406301
It can only work for certain anime/manga.
For example a DB or OP live action adaption would pretty much always be a failure.
Then you have GiTS and DN, both can theoretically be adapted into live action but failed miserably.
The biggest issue are the differences in directing between the 2 mediums.
>>
>>161405235
/tv/ here

Studio people are legit crackpots who try to streamline every idea in order to market it to the widest possible audience and theoretically make the most money possible

they do this despite the fact that in general the widest possible audience usually are stingy little shits who either torrent or are stupidly selective about what they spend their money on

they also do this despite the fact that if they do something in favor of an established audience they are guaranteed to make bank, because they are greedy fucks and gamble on making more bank

but the fucking biggest issue is fucking test audiences, they believe test audiences are the be all end all test, and if about 20 people think its a good movie then there is no reason why the movie shouldn't make a billion dollars

The first Kaiji movie is legitimately good, arguably better than the Japanese live action Death Note movies, can't speak for the second one as I haven't seen it.
>>
I'm actually somewhat interested in the Hollywood One Piece series
Sure it's probably gonna be terrible but I'm just curious how they're even going to go about it
Will they keep all the dumb shonen shit? Will they try to make it really serious?
Will they get actors that are massive for the Xbox hueg characters like Morgans?
Will they even give Luffy rubber powers or Zoro three swords?
>>
>>161401657
Dafoe is the only good actor in the movie, coincidentally he is the only good casting choice too. It will be trash but I might watch the bits with dafoe as ruyuk and some of the more "meme worthy" scenes with black L when they get posted somewhere.

they could have made Turner Light *vomits* an american student that takes advantage of kira's popularity on social media to start a cult and get the members to commit murders for him until ultimately meeting yagami raito and getting his name put in the death note

just make a good movie in the death note universe about other shit that happened in the world while kira was active

they were going to make this retarded edgy movie regardless, they could have at least made an edgy plot instead of rehashing the original story and trimming all the good parts

will hollywood ever learn how to adapt anime?

Just make an original story based on the concept instead of adapting the existing stories.

Kaiji (both movies)
Hentai Kamen (both movies with the first that got an award for best action)
Sagikage!! Otokojuku
And I won't include Oldboy

Just because it's from things you don't watch don't assume that there aren't good adaptations.

The most popular ones that people hype tend to flop and people like you assume that every single one is terrible.

Had the same discussion with a friend. They could have easily made it a sequel to the Japanese Live Action movies about a Death Note being dropped into America after the events of the movie jap movies. Hell could even have had Ryuk as it is shown he doesn't go back to the shinigami realm at the end, could have him drop the notebook in America to see how much fun he could have there.

Ironically enough, Efron would have been a way better pick since he's always cast as a popular teen.

Part of Lights dynamic is that he's a model student. He has perfect grades, and he was raised by a cop. Nobody would suspect him of being a serial killer, not even his own family.

The Light in the netflix movie just looks like an edgelord, along with Misa.

I was very skeptical about this until I saw Dafoe's Ryuk tell Light to "Test out his power by killing that nigger family down the road". I'm glad they brought Raimi in on this one.

Look like shit, critics with early access to the movie said it was shit.
>>
>On the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a 29% approval rating from seven critics, with an average rating of 5/10. However, Tsugumi Oba and Takeshi Obata, the original creators of Death Note, enjoyed the movie and felt it was faithful to their work, noting that the ending surprised them in a good way.
Have Japanese creators ever said that adaption of their work is bad? Didn't even Toriyama praise Dragon Ball Evolution at first?

>>
>>161408156
>>161410384
>Why the fuck not?
Because Fate has super-powered servants and mages. Same issue as with OP or DB it is too out there for a live action adaption,
It would also require a tv series, because a movie is too short for a Holy Grail War.

Further issue is that Hollwood would likely not genderbend histrorical figures, alienating the original fanbase.

There is also the moral/politics angle that make Fate hard too adapt. We talk about characteres that practiced slavery, warcrimes, etc-... coming back "alive".
Can you imagine the shitshow SJWs would start?
>>
What's up weeb dweebs /TV/ here, are you butthurt that death note is finally in a real medium?
