have you tried watching foreign movies? the words you dont understand and you have to read the captions to follow the story? do you find it interesting to watch one that you have to read a caption while watching? i remember when i was at japan and all english movies there has a caption of japanese writing for mostly japanese people dont know how to speak english. they really love to watch this english films so they have suffer reading it in their native language.

yeah..foreign movies are really much better than local movies that is why i watch foreign movies more often...more specifically american movies...like titanic, back to the future, the ring, and many many more. They very realistic and very entertaining but nowadays...very very few american movies are coming out seldom are the days when almost everyday there is new blackbuster movie being released and something to look forward to and no more sexy scenes like seeing the b3tt of Arnold Schwarzenager or the bre2st of Sharon Stone...or probably there are lot of them in the States but are not being released here.

how about not english films? for example japanese or chinese films, were you have to read the captions because the language they used is their native language? have you tried one? i think the ring is not an american movie. is it?

I do like watching foreign films, even though I don't do it often. I don't mind reading the subtitles, to me its not that big of a deal. When I was studying Spanish, I liked watch spanish films so I could become more familiar with the language.

yes I've watched a few. Spanish, french, italian. sometimes i like watching these on the plane. yes i read the english captions. and sometimes learn some words in a foreign language in the meantime! I also enjoy korean, japanese dramas. It's more authentic than watching it dubbed in another language where the lips don't cohere with the words! cheerio!

I find foreign films a little annoying to watch, especially if they speak too quick and the subtitles change before I finish reading them, lol! I wouldn't like to watch too many of them, if I'm going to be reading, I'd prefer it to be a book!
