I like to watch some old European movies. Germany before the Nazis took over made some very good movies: Nosferatu, M, Metropolis and Der Blaue Engel. One of my favourite 1950s movies is Du rififi chez les hommes and Bob le flambeur interests me too. From Asia I like Rashomon, Ip Man and The Raid.

All the time. There aren't that many English films, let alone good ones, so gotta watch a lot of foreign ones.

The Third Man and 007 movies are pretty good.

American films are foreign for me

Good taste! Love all of those, except I haven't seen Der Blaue Engel and Bob le flambeur.



I guess it's a bit of a stretch to say I never watch foreign films, I watch the subbed version of Godzilla 1954 whenever I get the chance because it's by far the best version out there. Other than that, I usually avoid them (again, if I wanted to read for 2 hours, I'd read a book or graphic novel), though I did rent Iron Monkey from Blockbuster back when Blockbuster was still a thing. Loved the fight scenes and choreography, but again, not a big fan of having to stare at the bottom of the screen the whole movie.



Absolutely. In my case, "foreign" is anything non Hollywood or Latin American in Spanish, since I have Hispanic heritage and speak Spanish fluently.

Most of the American films from the Central or Southern part of the continent, tend to be... Not very engaging to me. However, Hollywood or independent studios sometimes come up with good or excellent stuff (The Good Neighbor, most recently). Otherwise, I usually watch East Asian or European films and series. Subtitles don't bother me whatsoever, and the only time I'd watch a dub, it has to be an anime or animate movie, otherwise I can't stand it.

Reading sub-titles isn't my preferred method of watching movies, but yes, I do watch foreign films on occasion.  Reading dialogue at the bottom of the screen takes your focus off the cinematic presentation of what is a visual medium.  However, I don't let that hinder me from watching and enjoying what might be a great film that was made in a country other than my own.



Y'all are a bunch of philistines. Foreign (non English) films are awesome. I don't mind subtitles. My Spanish is good enough that I don't need them for Spanish films. My Japanese is pretty good too but I still use subtitles for those.

Whenever I go to a foreign country I try to watch a local movie in theaters subs or no subs. I did so in Japan Ecuador, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Korea. I wish more people watched foreign films instead of remaking them.

I always have subtitles on as I have a hard time understanding people whatever language they speak. Plus I usually don't have the sound up much when watching late at night. It's rare that I have the house to myself, crank up the volume and turn off the subs. Then I still feel like I'm missing things when the mumbling starts. However when they speak a language I'm not familiar with I do have to pay more attention to the subs.

I wish games were more consistent with subs. Every game has their own way what and what doesn't get subs or how to handle multiple people speaking at once. RDR2 can be mighty confusing when it mixes two conversations together in the subs without any indication what it what.



Im quite sure having alts is against the rules

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Yeah, I enjoy non native language films / TV shows from time to time. Having to read to follow the plot ensures the mind doesn't wander.
