Apart from big-screen movies, I must confess I've been indulging in the DVDs at home like never before. I don't know why I watch so many movies - but I guess it's the different stories of different people at different places in different situations - that suck me in; keep me thirsting for more. I guess it's the pure magic of Life in all it's colors that attracts me to stories in any form - movies, books, reality and all. It may also be due to the fact that we have only 1 life to live - and can't live so many others that we want to. So the stories pull the likes of me - where we're able to live and experience several different lives in those 2 or 3 hours of a movie; or more of a book. The point is I'm loving it.

Clint Eastwood's - Mr.Eastwood is growing on me everyday with the simple, musical, hard-hitting, fairy-tale magic of his movies. Most of these movies are produced by him, and all are directed by the man himself. If you can, take a look at the likes of A Perfect World, Absolute Power, Million dollar Baby, The Honky-Tonk Man, True Crime and others. These are apart from his classics like For A few dollars more and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly that earned him fame, et all.

Al Pacino's Mr.Pacino is not left behind though. Scarface, Scent of a Woman, Insomnia, The Insider, The Recruit, et all - show you the raw and hard-hitting nature of this man. And ofcourse, I don't even have to mention The Godfather series.

Ofcourse, then there are the usual stuff I enjoy - the Harry Potter series, Disney/Dreamworks stuff, Lord of the Rings, and many others. Well, I think I should soon publish a catalogue of my collection!
