Free Movies

I watch a lot of movies. Some are on DVD. It's a shame I have DVDs that I've seen once which are sitting neglected on a shelf. I'd love for these films to have more life.

Help me with this. Pick any of these movies, e-mail me your choices (fhu@pipeline.com) and I'll mail the DVDs to you. For keeps. I'll even pay the postage.

Movies are fun!

[P.S., Some of you commented that you don't have a DVD player. You can watch these films on your computer if it has a DVD drive, which most do.]

  11. I've watched some of them, and The Pianist (along with Across the Universe) are my favorite. I wish I could watch Shameless because I heard that Steven Robertson play on one of the episodes. But I live in Indonesia, though, so I don't know if it possible.
    You're really sweet by doing this. You make me smile just by reading this post :)
