                        Genre    : Romance, Drama
                        Cast      :  Gianna JunWoo-sung Jung and Sung-jae Lee
                    Two guys falls in love with the same girl and that's common in movies.But what if one of them is a cop and the other one is a criminal..?..That's the story of 'Daisy'-a 2006 released Korean movie.I won't say it's a must watch for common people but it's a must watch for movie lovers.Leading lady of this movie is none other than 'My sassy girl' star Gianna Jun.This movie has shot entirely in Netherlands. 
                    All the three main characters did an impressive job in this movie.Movie's second half is filled with lot of silence, and emotions are showed through subtle expressions,full marks to director for that.This is one of the best Korean movie we've seen and our verdict is it's watchable and you can wonder about how these Korean movie makers thinks like this..!!!

Mindhunters (2004) (English) (Mini Review)

               Director : Renny Harlin
               Genre : Thriller
               Cast   : Val KilmerLL Cool J and Christian Slater

         Mindhunters is not a usual suspense thriller which comes out of Hollywood all the time. Speciality of the story of the movie is how much ever you guess the climax you will be wrong.Director Renny Harlin didn't cast any actors as a lead character so that he can keep the suspense till the end.It's about a group of FBI agent trainees who participates in a training program which is located in a remote island.But things get serious when they realize they are being hunted.
                      If you love suspense thrillers,this one is for you.Commercially it didn't achieved a lot.Surprisingly, it got some negative reviews too..!!!..But what our suggestion is this is a decent thriller and a must watch for the lovers of this genre.
