There seems to be a perfect analogy between Food and Movies ..
Some like it spicy with lots of 'masala' and yet others like it like it boiled and bland!
And just using the same spices, like not all 'chaatwalas' can tingle the taste buds, also also with movie directors/actors. Even a master chef/director have their good or bad days.
If you have the same fare for a long time, the taste wears off and you have to keep trying new stuff.
