Watched couple of movies in the television. "Cutthroat Island" is a 17th century pirate story in which Geena Davis is Morgan, a lady pirate searching for a treasure hidden in an island. This movie is photographed well. "Crossworlds" is a movie directed by "Krishna Rao" and this also had good visuals. Story is all about magical scepter, crystal, supernatural power etc. "Poltergeist" is the famous horror movie and it is watchable for once.
Just browsed through the book on Ancient Egypt. The first edition of this book had come in 1894! There are lots of pictures and looks like a wonderful book.
