the second movie follows the manga a little bit i think.
i haven't watch either of them, but i've heard they are really good and the guys that play L and Light are spot on, especially L.
as for the L spinoff, it's about a case in the US before the whole Death Note incident. remember that woman who Light met at the police station and was dating the FBI agent that was assigned to follow Light? well she knew L before the Death Note case and had worked together when L wasn't so well known. apparently that's the spinoff story they are making the movie about.
i've been meaning to download both Death Note movies, but i've been putting it off
