  1. Ah crap, I didn’t see this until it was too late tonight. Maybe tomorrow. Is this worth seeing? I know nothing about it, but it sounds kinda neat. It’s not playing at my closest theaters, but it’s within range.

  2. I havent seen the original anime so I have no clue about whether this live action adapt will be worth the effort. Michael has some links above to reviews however that you may find useful.

  3. The Librarian and I first watched DN:LA on fansub back in late 2006, and were completely blown away at how good it was, particularly when I fired it up on the movie screen and LCD projector combo.

    But even though we were both incredibly busy with our jobs, we jumped at the chance to see it in the theater it was playing at here in Duckford.

    Two things: first, it’s been dubbed. It was a good dub job, no question, but it’s still dubbed. Second, they didn’t subtitle any of the writing. This was a little annoying, particularly when they show a closeup of a newspaper headline that is supposed to impart important information.

    Still, good times, good times.

  4. Duck, you just pushed DN out of my “maybe” list into my “to watch” list – though the latter is starting to get ridiculously long 🙂

  5. Fledge, let me try and push it even higher up your watch list: I didn’t expect to like Death Note at all. I only started watching it because The Librarian’s birthday was coming up, and she liked the manga, and I decided to burn her a DVD of the first few episodes of the anime (this was before it got licensed).

    And I got hooked, more or less. More plot twists than House of Games makes Wonderduck very happy…

  6. Duck, plot twists make me happy. I am a Galactica geek, after all. 🙂 OK, I just added it to my queue for after i finish Escaflowne.
