Yes, I am asian and I do watch a of of asian movies as well as american movies. I like watching all kinds of movies from Chinese, thai, korean to Japanese. I have even watched some Indian movies from India. I don't understand some of them but I do enjoy seeing different culture and opening my mind to be educated by these movies. Do you watch other countries movies? If you do which countries do you watch the most from?

yup. i watch movies from other countries, and i enjoy doing it.I'm from Indonesia and our local Indonesian movies are nothing to be compared with foreign movies. the story, the acting, the special effects, etc are not very good. Of course you can always make some exception, like 'Gie' a great Indonesian movie. I like watching movie from Korea, China, Japan, Europe, Hollywood, but i don't like movies from India.. :( btw, have you guys seen 'My Girl and I" ? a really wonderful Korean drama...

I like to watch movies from Britain. The British has such an off-beat, dry sort of humour that they are a joy to watch and keep me laughing all night long.

I've watched several foreign movies. I've watched Shutter, a Thai movie. I've watched Chinese movies too but all has subtitles. Some of them are dubbed into my language already. Some of the countries you mentioned are actually best in horror film making and I really appreciate their talent.

I don't watch any films like that as obviously I do not understand that language and it is not really good reading the subtitles as you may miss out on some of the visual scenes.
