The effect that movies have had is unparalleled. Where they score over other forms of entertainment is the sheer lack of effort on the part of the viewer to be involved. Books demand attention, education and effort. Theater has its own audience and often requires some understanding of the creator’s work. Movies on the other hand entertain one and all, from the unlettered to the total nerd.
We have grown up on movies. Each one of us has a favorite movie or star. Great actors, actresses, directors and scripts have kept us enthralled and left us thirsting for more. We keep flocking to the movie halls to let the movies overtake our imagination; to surrender to the audio-visual spectacles that are churned out routinely by the big studios. In this age, the DVDs have brought this entertainment closer to our homes. High quality film viewing is not a distant dream but a reality that we have experienced. Online stores and DVD clubs stock and sell not just popular movies but also the classics and the works of masters.
