Yes! Many foreign films out there are geared towards you, the movie fan who just wants to be entertained after a hard day at work or school. Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to be stuck-up or artsy in order to appreciate world cinema.
At this ever-growing website, and in plain English, I review foreign films that you'll probably like but are missing out on. Since there are a variety of tastes out there, I'll do what few, if any, of the other critics do:
After each review, I make a judgment call as to what kind of person would most likely enjoy the film in question. Some will blow you away, while others might just blow.
Perhaps you've never seen a foreign movie in your life, or maybe you hang out at the video store too much. Whatever the case, keep in mind that these things are like international beers: there's something for everyone!
Word of advice before proceeding:
You'll find that international movies usually require you to think, even the action-packed, high octane shoot-em-ups. And I know a lot of you out there like action movies, right? Unlike Hollywood, the majority of foreign filmmakers know you're not an idiot.
This is a sign of respect!
A film that expects more thinking from its audience is more satisfying and fun to watch.
Enjoy your visit, enjoy the movie reviews, and in no time you'll be making great dvd selections at Netflix or Blockbuster Online. This online movie database is constantly growing as more reviews and other content are added.
