Studio Ghibli films:up:
try watching ELITE SQUAD. Made in brazil based on true story, awesome movie!
The Lives of Others. A story about the Stasi right before and after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Outstanding movie.
Does foreign porn count ? Not that I've ever watched any, just curious.
Run Lola Run is a fun intro to foreign flicks.
No Jackie Chan allowed
Another great one:up:
I think Giacomo Cimini’s 2003 film Red Riding Hood was the last one I watched that I'd consider a foreign film. On Netflix, I believe.
It's about "the misadventures of a young girl acting as a vigilante, delivering violent justice to thieves, rapists, murderers and thugs with the aid of her imaginary, wolf mask wearing friend, George".
It was different. No subtitles, it's in English.
I figured he was talking about "Swedish Erotica"
Old Boy, the original not the remake by Spike Lee is supposed to be pretty good.
There are a lot of those action type b movies that I'm pretty sure are foreign. Everyone's accent just seems a little "off". Hitman is the first that comes to mind.
Old Boy rocks!!
I still find it outrageous that they're remaking that movie, was phenomenal.
Tous les Matins du Monde.
Holy shit. So f*cked up.
Brotherhood of the Wolf is one of my favorites.
How about The Red Balloon?
Or Un Chien Andalou?
Worth watching if you can find them.
^^ this movie rocks.....it's like a Scooby Do ending in that it shows different outcomes based on what happens at certain times. Like instead of getting delayed by the train, you make it on time....so THIS happens instead....
Or you trip and fall, and your running late...so now THIS happens......it's a rad flick, good looking girl, German, good times. Lot's of action.
Speaking of Kung Fu, there is one called "Ip Man". It is based on the true story of Bruce Lee's master. So, you can imagine how bad assed Bruce Lee was, well this is the guy that taught him. It's based in the '30's when the Japanese were invading China. Besides the martial arts, the story is really, really good. It stars Donnie Yen as Ip Man. It was released in 2008.
There is also Ip Man 2.....I'd also recommend that one too. :up::up:
Unless you happen to know the actual
story of Ip Man, in which case that movie will just piss you off.
