I love foreign movies because my country movies are too boring.

Any movie will do as long as it has moral lesson, and not overrated.

I enjoy foreign movies because there is nothing much to compare to in my country's movie industry.

I love underground movies mostly from some culture I don't know. I'm very open minded but also very specific in what I like. Sometimes I love to watch Hindi movies like Lagaan, Gangs of Wasseypur and Dangal.
Heart! We will forget him!
You an I, tonight!
You may forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light.

When you have done, pray tell me
That I my thoughts may dim;
Haste! lest while you're lagging.
I may remember him!

Both but i mostly enjoys hollywood sci-fi movies. The movie "Aashiqui 2" was made in my country and when i watched "A Star Is Born" it was like watching the same movie again. But i find "Aashiqui2" better (no offenses ).

I don't watch movies too often, but if I don't watch movies from America, I will watch Spanish movies to help me learn the language. I also find that their humor lines up a bit more with mine.

I am sadly proudly American and my ingrown pride allows me to overly enjoy american movies. Watching foreign movies is not my forte. (I'm open, they're just harder to find.)

I'm not the biggest fan of foreign movies but I loved Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

I used to watch mostly American movies, but happily I am starting to open up to new countries, especially through Netflix. It's hard to get used to the subverted expectations, but I think it's a very enriching experience.

it's rare for me to watch local movies however if I found something interesting I give it a chance. notably, I'm for the sci-fi genre and not so much on the horror or drama. I mostly watch foreign movies only if that marks my interest otherwise if not I wouldn't be interested at all.

Once in a while there's a movie worth watching.

Although most commercial movies in Mexico deal with relationship topics (it can get tiring at times), there come some that have surprised me. Cinema in Mexico produces mostly comedies and animated movies, and me being a Sci-Fi consumer don't really enjoy a lot of those movies, but I'm happy destiny placed two great Mexican film directors in the same dimension as me: Guillermo del Toro (big on the realm of Sci-Fi and Fantasy) and Alfonso Cuaron (big of telling life stories).
