Deathnote Expectations


Deathnote is a new Netflix original movie based on the anime of the same name. Most people that i know are already taking a negative response to the movie before it's release due to the serious white washing of the story and characters. The anime takes place in Tokyo with all asian characters and the movie is full of caucasians. I personally am not happy with this choice either, but i will give respect where it's due if the execution outweighs my disappointment in the casting choices.

Everyone must keep in mind also that this isn't a remake of any kind. The movie will be based on elements we know from the anime but it will not be the same storyline. There will be a new plot with new surrounds and different circumstances. That aspect calms me down for the simple idea that more people will have a insight on the world of us anime nerds. A variety of people never get into the hardcore anime society for purposes of subtitles, not identifying with characters, and some simply see them as cartoons. Having this anime brought to life with characters that Americans can identify with that will broaden their outlook on this form of entertainment makes me relax long enough to give it a chance.

The only thing about this movie that immediately excited me from the beginning is Ryuk live in the flesh. The attempt to take this crazy beautiful character and make him something real, something tangible, something that everyone can tremble at has me screaming like a kpop fan girl being kissed by her ideal. The choice to have Willem Dafoe voice Ryuk was also a very smart decision and a match made in heaven. Willem has a voice that commands attention amongst the audience no matter what he is doing. I fell in love with him as an actor when he appeared in the Spider Man movies (do not make fun of me for this) and i have went back to look at some of his earlier work. My favorite till this day is his character in the Boondock Saints. He is phenomenal without a doubt, even as just the voice to this character i know he will not be a problem for me as i watch this movie.


This Friday

RYUK IS COMING TO LIFE!!!

L'Oreal Pure Clay Face Mask (Product Review)

First I must say, if you haven't yet tried the new L'Oreal Pure Clay face masks you should definitely purchase one today. They are one of the most amazing products I have ever used.

I received these masks for free in exchange for a honest review of the product through a site called BzzAgent. This was the first item I had been given to review and I couldn't have been more pleased with what i received.

These three masks are designed to be fit for all skin types, it's just a matter of piecing together which one provides the best results for your skin.
Descriptions of each:

Red Algae - Exfoliants and refines pores. 

Charcoal - Detox and Brightening 

Eucalyptus - Purifies and Mattifies

Each jar is retailed for about $9.28, and there is a sufficient amount of product. I believe customers can get more out of this product than buying individual face masks. I received all three mask variations, which is about $30 I would have gladly spent to make my skin feel the way it does …

LEGION (Season One Review)

The first season of Legion has officially come to a undesirable end!

For all those that know nothing about Legion, He is the son of Professor X. This character falls into the category of antihero with Deadpool because he doesn't take into account the wellbeing of the world before lighting the place up. Legion has a super mutant version of dissociative identity disorder where each of his alternate personas has their own superpowers. So the first season only touches the tip of the iceberg with this creature.

The series is fascinating in many ways that surprised me. It will persuade you to feel as though you are tripping on acid trying to follow along with the missing pieces of time and the main character's perception of his fantasy world mixed with our reality. You will literally be taken through the mind of a man that was told his is schizophrenic for majority of his life. His mental break downs, traumatic experiences, nightmares, his demon is so vividly put on display for th…

PRAYING
Ke$ha has finally come back with her new song titled "Praying". I think this is the happiest I have ever been watching one of her music videos. I almost cried at the intensity of her vocals and being able to see what she can really do as an artist. I've always felt like part of her was holding back and now those chains are off and i'm ready to hear more of her amazing voice.

How great she sounds is only the first good thing about this video. I love how empowering and vulnerable it is. You see the struggle, pain, and her willingness to fight which just made this even more breathtaking. This is beyond what was expected from looking at the cover picture. The video is below for the ones who haven't seen it yet. You will not regret watching this at all if you are a Ke$ha fan.

Her brand new album "Rainbow" is set to be released on August 11th, and I can assure you that I will be listening to every song on there. The anticipation to see this side of he…
