Having just watched Pans Labyrinth (I tried so hard to get to watch it at the cinema but was unfortunatley unsuccesful) I am back to thinking about foreign movies (ie anything that isnt british or american).
I do like watching world cinema though I will admit I see no where near as much of it as I like, does anyone have any good recommendations, for not just japanese movies but for any country? My favourite film is Battle Royale and I throughly enjoyed Pans last night, however I realise that I must still be missing out on so many great films out there, not just the ones that are more popular eg Oldboy, Ring, Flying daggers etc. but films that don't get the publicity over here.
As a big kid I love fantasy but also love cheesy horrors gore etc.
What are your favs?
Also do you prefer to watch dubbed or with subtitles?
If I'm watching a 'real' film I prefer subtitles, however if I'm watching cartoons or anime then I'm happy doing either as long as they have put thought into the dubbing and not made it sound stupid.
