Movie... Magic... 183...

Death Note

Went to watch Death Note with my mom at Plaza Singapura on Saturday afternoon... The movie is based on a popular Japanese manga series written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata... Light Yagami is an aspiring prosecutor who had lost faith in the legal system after hacking into the Japanese police database and discovering that criminals are being left unpunished... Just at this moment, a bored Shinigami, Ryuk, dropped his Death Note into the human world... Light chanced upon the note and after initial skeptism and experimentation, decides to use the note to create a perfect world without any crime...

As the death rates of criminals increases, the Japanese police called in the help of the mysterious but world famous detective L in hopes of solving the case... Despite his disheveled appearance, odd sitting manner and obsession with sweet food, L soon proves to be the greatest nemesis of Light and the battle of wits soon begins...

This movie is quite enjoyable and you'll enjoy the battle between L and Light... Ryuk's animation is great but not over-the-top and he also has some funny moments... The movie does have some slow moving parts but in it is still intriguing... Take note that the movie ends with half the story told and the second part will be coming to cinemas this December... Remember to stay tune to the trailer of the second movie as it will be shown right after the credits of Death Note... Overall I'll give the movie an 8 out of 10...

I saw this video on Yahoo Video Singapore about the best magician in the world... It's really 'amazing'... Watch it and you'll know what I mean... Haha... (link)

Today I'll be posting MVs of the songs 完美情人 and 甜蜜约定 by 183 Club... Both songs are recorded in the 爱情魔发师 OST...

完美情人 is the opening theme of 爱情魔发师... It features all 5 of them singing and dancing... (link)

甜蜜约定 is the ending theme of 爱情魔发师... It features Jacky, Johnny, Ehlo and Sam helping Mindow woo a gal and the gal falling in love with Mindow... A very sweet video... (link)


  • Hey! 'Death Note' is AMAZING!! Watched the manga, anime & movie versions wif my cousin & all of them were GREAT!! I luv a good battle of wits, and only jap animators can make such a far-fetched story absolutely believable & captivating. Cheers for the recommendation, mate! Lotsa well wishes in 2007~ ;p
