Review: Death Note – The Last Name

This is a review from a person who has never watched the anime or manga. Please bear in mind that I didn’t even know the basic premise of the story.

Death Note 2 is by far the best movie I’ve watched since the beginning of 2007, hands down. Of course, to compare Death Note 2 with shits like Cicakman and Forbidden Siren is an absolute insult to the movie. The storyline is so good it’s comparable to bigass Hollywood flicks such as Confidence and Reservoir Dogs. No, Death Note 2 is not another gun-slinging gangster movie, in fact, it’s nothing like that. It’s a film about a notebook that was dropped down onto earth by God of Death, which can be used to kill off people.

Sounds childish, typical and boring? Not…

The twists in the storyline will blow your mind away. You will be kept at the edge of your seat throughout the movie. It is nothing close to bubblegum teen flicks, in fact it is a rather dark story. KY even likened it to The Prestige. The cinematography is pretty good. The CGIs are good too.

It’s funny that a lot of people have been telling me to not watch this movie unless I’ve watched the anime/manga version or the first movie. Apparently the movie is very confusing to people who have no basic knowledge of the storyline. I say, CRAP to all those claims. The movie is actually so complete that a newbie could sit down and understand every single scene without having prior knowledge of the story. Bravo to the screenwriter and director for having the non-anime/manga watching audience in mind.

I don’t want to spoil the movie for you by writing a long winded review. Just go to the cinema and watch it.

Damn hairdresser!

I’ve already stated very clearly, I want the front to be long and the back to be shorter, kinda puffy (similar to Denise Keller’s current do), not too much layering I want to have a classic style. And you said you know what I mean. You said, yeah…concave mah.

Then you cut and cut and cut and cut and now I end up looking like a little boy.

Fuck you lah!!!!!!!!!! I said you’ve veered off course but you kept saying you’re making my hair look good. Fuck you lah!!!!!!!! What’s the point of making my hair look good if it doesn’t make me look good. I don’t want to look like a little boy!!!!!!!! And the worst thing of all it doesn’t even look good, you’ve layered so much my hair looks so fucking flat. I hate you I HATE YOUUUUUUU

So what you’re the fucking “professional stylist”, stick your awards up your fucking arse now I look like a little boy. I don’t care if 200 million Ah Lians think my hair looks good, cause I’d be fucking damed if I needed approval from them. Asshole, now I don’t even know if it’s possible to grow my hair out without looking like a homeless person later on.

Why???? What’s my crime?? I thought all my previous bad hair days were attributed to cheap hairdressers so I switched to a more upmarket one, also same thing!? WTFWTFWTF lies all lies.

Does this look concave to you?

It’s bloody jagged.

Flatter than my boobs.

Never again, I’m just going to grow my hair till I look like Rapunzel.
