    If you have immigrant parents it is not a very weird way to have a conversation at all. To me that is just normal and kind of how I communicate with my maternal grandparents. :laughing:

    That may be, but it seems unusual in a TV show. It still worked though.

    Agree. But for a VAMPIRE movie, LTROI is very good. As it is in heaven is super cheesy, but good for old folks not used to "foreign" films.

    Perhaps so. Still not very good though. En man som heter Ove is one of the better Swedish films made the last years and, imo, the perfect choice for "old folks not used to foreign films." :nod:

    I think Hollywood-films are still the best in the world. Although they make alot of crap, they also have the largest budgets and best actors. The best non-American actors move to Hollywood eventually too. ;)

    American films tend to be very ADHD though. European films are slooooow and nothing really happens until it happens, which is nothing happens. But, then, it happens...without happening. :laughing: Exciting in a different way. I think Americans are to hyper to enjoy Euro-films. :p

    Of course it is important not to forget, Hollywood always have to "steal" the best foreign films and ruin them with new productions. That is kind of annoying. :no:

    Turkey are much better than US making dramas though. I like that over-dramatic stuff where the protagonists does not necessarily have to end up together. Also like it when someone dies lol. :)

    I remember watching "The Beast" several years ago about a Soviet Tank crew that gets split off from their unit in Afghanistan, but it wasn't a Russian movie. I thought it Israeli, but IMDB says it's French.

    Truly, reading has always been a chore for me.
    Dyslexia.
    Luckily my medical school invented synopsis medical text books.

    BTW I second Das Boot, but Downfall first.
    What was the movie about the German, or maybe Polish, Jewish kid who could pass for Aryan German and could get along with Soviets too? I would add that one.
    :)
    If I must read subtitles.

    I have some issues with my vision that cannot be fully restored with glasses. Iy has become slightly worse lately, but if I do not sit too far away, it's no problem. Sometimes the text is just perfect size for me to sit at a normal distance. :)

    Both are awesome. :D

    Haven't seen that one.

    Europa, Europa

    is the movie I could not remember.
    Jewish kid passes as Aryan, goes to Hitler Youth school,
    goes to war, manages to get caught by Soviets.

    Highly recommended if you can't watch Downfall or Das Boot again.
    In that class.

    Again, it's good for a vampire movie. Most are terrible :p

    I can't agree that Hollywood makes the best films. They make some good films, and many bad films. Not sure American actors are the best, either.

    Yes, the short attention span and need for spoon feeding (of many American viewers) makes the Hollywood product very dumbed down. So many good American films never made money there because the viewing public 'couldn't understand what they were talking about'. Literally.

    And yes, the American habit of remaking good foreign films is an abomination. They ALWAYS utterly ruin them .. removing all the elements that actually made them good. Not a fan of either, really, but the stark difference between the original Girl With Dragon Tattoo and the remake is a very good example. The original was about a thousand times better.

    Finally, agree. Non-happy endings are always good. And yes, Turks make some good stuff.

    I always enjoyed El Santo movies. Lots of action in these morality tales.

    filmed at precisely the same time and studio as Lugosi's version, it is generally acknowledged as the superior movie
