I almost exclusively watch foreign movies because I don't really like german cinema, it's most of the time boring and lacking in many ways compared to the cinema from other countries but I watch most of these foreign movies with german dub. It is very rare that a movie does not have a German dub these days.
If a movie doesn't have a german dub I watch the english dub, I don't really care for original dub most of the time but if only subs are available I will watch movies with english or german sub.
the only exceptions are anime, I watch almost all of them with japanese sub and english or german sub, everyone who watches anime knows why.

There are some amazing foreign movies, so I'd be doing myself a disservice by avoiding them. While not a movie, I just finished watching Dark, a german series, for the 4th time. Easily the best show I've ever watched.



I watched a good amount of foreign films one year, but ever since not really. I don't really watch movies or tv shows in general anyways. And what little time I do get to watch something I watch Japanese anime.



Some. Watched train to busan last year. Great zombie movie. Highly recommended.



I think the better title would've been "Do you like subtitles?".
German cinemas show almost exclusively foreign movies and almost all of them are German dubbed. They also show English movies without subtitles, which is the only way I've been watching movies for the past decade.

That said, screw movies, I'm watching anime with subtitles only. But only until I got the language skills to watch it raw.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

I see about as many non-english language films as english language films. That includes movies from all around the World, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, China, Mexico etc.

German cinema peaked in the 60s with Winnetou. That shit was good.



 

 

Very few films aren't technically foreign to me, including Hollywood but I get what you are gettkng at. Yeah. The film experience is often much less prone to being shit as you don't have to focus on verbal acting, direction? editing etc. When the attention is drawn from them and the microseconds of text reading add up, it often leaves more room for the story. There are tons of films I know for a fact I wouldn't have had liked too if they were made for a english audience or dubbed. Pans labyrinth for example or Looks whos back, a German comedy film that wouldn't have had the same comedic effect in english.



 

Sure, although nowadays it's more foreign tv series that I watch instead of movies. I'm currently watching Dark on Netflix from Germany. I'v watched great shows so far from Iceland, Denmark, Finland, South America and Belgium. I always turn on the original sound track with subtitles, can't stand the terribly cheap English voice overs.



Well, my "job" kind of forces me to do so, so yes. I watch films from all around the world. Recently Timbuktu, la Jaula de Oro, die Wellen, Valse avec Bachir. Also, I'm not the biggest fan of french cinema (generally not good to just relax), I tend to watch mostly american films during my free time.
