Went to see the live action film of Death Note at the 2008 San Francisco International Asian-American Film Festival.

The story is split into two parts, and we only watched the first as the sequel won't be shown until later. Won't spoil it, but suffice to say that some of the plot devices were done a little differently from the anime, and the result was much better (the whole Naomi Misora bit in particular). Also, the Ryuk animation was really well done. The film was quite good, but I think it would have been just alright had I not seen the anime.

But joy! Saw it at the lovely Castro Theater, which has a Wurlitzer!
