Movie Review: Miracle in Cell 7

Probably in the top 5 best movies I've seen this year. The synopsis is about a mentally disabled person being accused of murder. The story unfolds as he is imprisoned and finds ways to see his daughter. Unfortunately, I think anyone that has to watch this with subtitles will downgrade the movie. The linguistics of emotions that comes from Korean is different when read in another language.

The story line was done perfectly. I wouldn't have changed anything.

The acting was superb. Particularly the two main characters, the mentally disabled guy and his little daughter. I did not know someone so small could act so well. Amazing. I actually cried at the end scene during the climax of the movie.

Highly recommend this movie. Specially if you can understand Korean.

Rating: 10/10.

The Best Mp3 / Video Players

I've been using KMPlayer for my videos and Winamp for my mp3's for the past few years. Both lovely softwares and work as intended. Winamp started to pop up some error messages and I did not like how bloated the software has become. It was such a great player before it was bought out by AOL. KMPlayer has also been a nice video player and has worked fine, but I wanted something better. I found two new softwares that have impressed me.

AIMP3 - Is a free music player and works great. It's very similar what Winamp used to be before the bloat. It's a simple mp3 player and does what it's supposed to. In terms of features it's basically another Winamp. What makes it better? Less bloat and loads fast.

Daum Potplayer - Is another free video player. The great thing about this is that it plays pretty much everything you throw at it. KMplayer had some limitations as it did not play quicktime files or flash files. Additinally, KMPlayer's audio decoder was buggy and created some back noise on some of my older videos. Potplayer has been pitch perfect. Great find.
