An Unusually Tall Person (a Giant!) with an Eternal Love for Cinema
As you can decipher from the headline, this blog’s title is derived from amalgamating two traits I embody. For one, I am a tall guy (6 feet, 2.5 inches), which is quite remarkable for an average Indian; I am also an eternal cinephile.
It was in the year 2002 when Chris Columbus ushered the movie buff in me. His second Harry Potter directorial, The Chamber of Secrets, fascinated me beyond comprehension. I saw the film in a packed theater, with an occupancy of nearly 1000, and the experience was euphoric.
In case you wonder, it wasn’t my first film in a cinema. My parents had taken me to a variety of Bollywood films, which, quite frankly, had nothing exciting for me. Indian cinema has always been for the grownups. Hence, the world of flying broomsticks, magic wands, and mystical creatures intrigued me.
From there on, my journey as a cine lover went full throttle as I gradually learned more and more about various cinematic artforms, along with the literature that gave birth to many great movies.
Parallelly, I adored watching cartoons and anime. Whether it was Courage – the Cowardly Dog, Popeye, Scooby-Doo, Powerpuff Girls, Dexter’s Laboratory, these shows nurtured my imagination. Among anime, Transformers, Pokemon, Beyblade, and Samurai Jack found a soft spot in my heart and satiated my creative hunger.
By now, as a guesstimate, I have seen more than a thousand films and TV series. Though movies remain my first preference. Television is unwantedly time-taking, and time management, I believe, is the biggest challenge of adulthood.
Nonetheless, watching a film, whether old or new, is my favorite pastime, and The Movie Giant is the rejoinder for that. Happy reading!
