Monday Afternoon

Monday, April 6, 2009


My younger sister (who is staying with me this summer break) and I had a tiring yet productive afternoon today. We bought a two-day supply of DVDs, which we plan to watch for the rest of the holidays. First on the list is the love epic, Dr. Zhivago. I can't wait to be immersed in this "tumultuous tale of Russia divided by war and hearts torn by love." Next is the HBO miniseries, Tsunami: The Aftermath. It chronicles the wake of the tsunami that ravaged the coast of Thailand in 2004. In line, too, is the recent Academy Award winner, Slumdog Millionaire followed by Watchmen, which is based on the graphic novel of the same title. And last on the list is the anime flick, Saiunkoku Monogatari, a Chinese tale set 600 years ago, which my sister insisted we should buy. With these movies that let us travel to Russia, Thailand, India, the United States and China, we don't have to leave the house to have fun.

You've got great selections. I intend to watch Slumdog Millionaire in my phone this week. Had to save it here or else I'll get lazy or forget my queues. I'm intrigued with Dr. Shivago. =)
