Konark's HD Movie Collection of the Best Movies.

The greatest collection of movies ever which includes not only commercial movies and box office block-busters as well as rare and cult movies which very few have seen or know about. These movies form a part of my enviable collection in the form of CDs, DVDs, Downloaded movies playable in any player including a DVD player. All genres - horror, thrillers, offbeat, popular, cult.. you name it. The list is prepared with utmost care and consists of movies which have been watched by myself and then rated rather than just hearsay. Contains movies for all moods, all ocassions. Slightly skewed towards a mature audience but nonetheless a true collectors list handpicked with precision. Yours truly - Konark
