I have noticed lately that you're writing an awful lot of reviews for foreign movies that aren't even in English. They are in another language with English subtitles. Now I am as cultured as the next person, but do you honestly think many U.S. theaters are showing movies like "Jian Gui," which is in Cantonese, Mandarin and Thai? And even if they were, who do you think would watch these movies? Are there just not enough movies coming out lately that are in English?

Somebody must have seen "Jian Gui"--released in North America as "The Eye"--because Tom Cruise has purchased the remake rights
