Dragoon Films Recommendations: I Saw The Devil

This South Korean revenge film is by far he best I've seen from the genre. It's about a man whose wife is brutally murdered and he goes the extra mile to get back at her killer. This emotionally driven film has some very intense scenes and disturbing imagery that will stay with you for a long time. Definitely a must watch... If you can handle it!

Dragoon Film Recommendations: Mystery Team

This is a very funny independent film made by Derrick Comedy starring Donald Glover and Aubrey Plaza. It is about three eighteen year old kids who have trouble growing up, but they try to solve a murder in their neighborhood to prove that they are adults. This is a little known movie that I think deserves to be seen by all crude comedy fans.
