Director Terrible Death Note Movie Has Deleted His Twitter

first_imgStay on target The Best and Most Loved Anime Series of All TimeJump Force is a Fighting Game With Favorite Shonen Action Heroes The Death Note film adaptation from Netflix was pretty terrible. There’s no sugarcoating it. I’m sure that even if I didn’t absolutely love the original manga series and the anime adaptation I still wouldn’t have found it a productive use of my time to watch the movie. I did watch it, however, all the way through, and it just made me angry and confused. And annoyed, because how dumb is Light anyway to show this random girl at school that he can kill people with a special book as soon as he gets the thing? Brainless.At any rate, I’m sure there’s been worse commentary, particularly from denizens of the internet who also found the movie to be quite lacking, much like myself. I can only imagine the feedback from the abhorrent film, which director Adam Wingard had to put up with since the film made its debut on Netflix. Wingard wasn’t exactly friendly in his discourse with all the Twitter users who apparently sent him criticism and comments about the movie, so it appears he’s ended up deleting his Twitter account.While it’s not really noteworthy or important that Wingard decided to remove himself from the social network, what is interesting is the fact that this might spell doom for any sequels or additional work Netflix may have been looking at for the live-action Death Note film. It’s one thing to get away from criticism entirely, but perhaps Wingard has come to terms with the fact that yes, while “film criticism is different than b*tching at filmmakers on twitter” as he tweeted before, you’ve got to be able to deal with commentary in this business, which can sometimes be negative.Of course, this Twitter deletion could have nothing to do with the tweets or the outrage from fans who expected something better and perhaps Wingard decided to step back for a bit and stop dealing with the daily frustrations of being a public figure. Perhaps he can reflect on making less cringe-worthy films in the interim.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img
