The Death Note Netflix Movie – Review, Discussion, & Theories

Check out time codes to specific topics of discussion below.

In this in-depth discussion video, my friend, Jawsh, and I take a look at Netflix’s Death Note movie and analyze the hell out of it. As huge fans of the show and the manga, we discuss the differences between the movie and its source material, as well as, provide theoretical changes that could have improved the film.

As we were watching it, Jawsh was getting very involved in the plot and was making several predictions and theories—predictions and theories that would have improved Death Note 2017, by leaps and bounds. In this video, we discuss how those ideas could have shaped the outcome of the film, by even sticking to the new lore that the film created. I think Jawsh and I came up with some pretty good ideas and analysis. I hope you guys think so too.

We originally recorded this the weekend Death Note came out on Netflix, but I encountered many technical problems along the way. Anyway, hope you enjoy the analysis. Let me know in the comments, what you thought of the movie, and any other ways Netflix could have improved it.
