King of Devil's Island movie review

This is not an Asian movie but it is a very good Norwegian movie I watch last Sunday at Fantasia.
It is not an horror movie it is a dramatic movie inspired by real events that took place on Bast√ły Island in the beginning of the 20th century. This Island was used as a correctional center for young boys to be reformed into humble,useful and useful Christians.
In the movie we follow our hero, Erling or I should say C-19 is sent on the island under suspicion of murderer. Of course he is a rebel and he can't stand the humiliating or useless punishment nor the fact that his friend Olav called C-1 is being sexually abused by one of the person in charge of the barrack. As the time passes C-19 and C-1 gradually begin to stir the emotions and the revolt among the other boys and ultimately it leads to a rebellion. But as the heads of the center are overwhelmed they call the army to suppress the revolt and unfortunately some soldiers did shoot at the boys.
So it is a sad and somewhat revolting movie about young boys who committed various little crimes and living in an icy hell with little hopes of escape.

Daesung and victim's family reach settlement

It was just reported by local media OSEN moments ago that Daesung and the victim’s family reached a settlement over the car accident from last May. The exact details of the settlement were not revealed.

“Today Daesung and the victim’s family reached a settlement. The victim’s family expressed their desire to not have Daesung serve any punishment. They said they felt sympathy for Daesung and told him not to be agonized over the issue. The victim’s family also encouraged him to continue showing good performances,” an unnamed source was quoted as saying.

On May 31st, Daesung hit a motorcyclist who was lying on the street due to a previous crash that resulted from drunk driving. The motorcyclist was found dead when police came to the scene. Since the accident, Daesung has not made any public appearances, reportedly spending most of his time at home in extreme mental pain. Following today’s settlement, Daesung is expected to speed up his recovery process as many fans anticipate his return to the K-Pop scene.

The Unjust movie review

More than a week since last, I 'm sorry, I started classes last week and I have three hours of classes everyday and I have homework so I don't really have time to post during the week.
Anyway, Yesterday I went to Fantasia (YAY !!), a movie festival so I'll review yesterday's movie, The Unjust.
The movie is about a series of murders ongoing in Seoul for a few weeks but the police is still unable to find the murderer. At some point, the main suspect is killed by the police and after this accident the higher up decide to ask Captain Choi to create a fake case and thus end the story. But Choi has problem with the mafia which lead to an internal investigation and an ambitious prosecutor decide to stick his nose in the case and things are not going to be better ...

I have to say, it was a good movie, a nice plot even if some part were predicatable, the story is quite dark and there is quite a bit of violence (which I don't mind but the movie is still rated 16+) but there was still some humour in the movie. The actors were good there were quite a few good punch lines. And one of the strong point of the movie is the ending which is not a stupid happy ending because a happy ending would have spoiled the movie.

would you mind if I review today's movie even if it is not an Asian movie ??
