Death Note & A Cross The Universe

Two DVDs I ordered last week arrived –


The first one is called Death Note, which screened 2 years ago at the NY Asian Film Festival and is adapted from an animated series of the same name. I heard someone call Death Note a "gothic thriller" once, which I think is pretty accurate. And as you can imagine, this equals throngs of teenaged girls and otaku kids going nuts for it. I recently watched both live action movies and the sequel via Netflix and am minorly obsessed with one of the main characters, a detective named L with lots of eyeliner, a massive sweet tooth and aspergian tendencies. I fear that if I start watching the series, I'll never leave my house and spend a small fortune upping my Netflix plan.

The other one is a Justice tour documentary called A Cross the Universe that came out almost a year ago. It came with a bonus CD featuring a live show they did in San Francisco. The booklet features a ton of pictures from their 2008 tour, which fans got to submit when they were putting together the DVD/CD set. (Just a note: the trailer is a little NSFW)

I listened to the set at work last week and loved it, especially Phantom pt 1.5 (click to listen). The best part was that they closed with Master of Puppets with some Uffie mixed in, which they didn't do when I saw them @ Terminal 5 in 2007.

As for the DVD, I watched it on Friday night and it was thoroughly entertaining; never a boring moment. It definitely made me feel like my life was suddenly very boring. Let me know what you think if you've seen either or end up checking them out...
