I haven't had a chance to rewatch the first Death Note live action movie recently, but I'm glad the beginning of this film caught me up to speed. I was impressed that the voice acting is on par even with the original anime series voices. The mysterious and suspenseful plot make for an excellent theme combination. I am glad they made this movie bunch simpler than the anime series as well.

(de) wrote: There's really nothing wrong with this adaptation of Virginia Woolf's novel, but as a movie it isn't really outstanding, either. It is a very good, touching story about people who are all manners and properness on the outside, and varying degrees of desperation on the inside. Vanessa Redgrave is definitely the star here, and she is excellent as Mrs. Dalloway; the contrast between her anxious voice-over narration and her calm appearance is really effective. Rupert Graves is good, if overdoing it a bit, as a disturbed World War I veteran. Marleen Gorris's direction is mostly unobtrusive, although she does do interesting things with the camera a couple of times. The technical aspects are all competent without being exceptional. Ultimately, the film derives its strength from Woolf's themes, with the characters' regret at what they have settled for and their wondering about what their lives might have been. I would actually recommend watching Stephen Daldry's "The Hours" first, which was based on a contemporary novel both inspired by and about Woolf's work. A lot of specific occurrences and themes are shared between "The Hours" and "Mrs. Dalloway," but "The Hours" is better as a movie. If you do really like "The Hours," however, then you would do well to see this movie version of its source material.

The jokes kept me laughing, the voices were great, but the only problem was that the movie that they faced sure was a stinker, but no Manos. Not exactly the one to rule mankind with, but watchable and certified riffable!Verdict: This is a real hamdinger of a movie, so get it on DVD.
