Which do you prefer watching European films or Asian movies?

I like watching a little of both, but I prefer Euro films they can be very interesting like I like Oliver Oliver, Le enfant, Ma vie en rose I even have prefered actors/actresses

so what does everyone else think?

Is this a bit like these threads?

http://www.crunchyroll.com/showforumtopic?id=1632 American Movies vs. Korean Movies
http://www.crunchyroll.com/showforumtopic?id=3515 Americanized Films & Drama Series

Eh, on second thought, maybe it's not like the second thread since you're not actually talking about American remakes.

In case you didn't know, as a standalone the word 'Euro' is a currency.

I like American movies... I don't care much for European or Asian films... I was raised on American films and have developed a taste for them. Then again, I like Asian cartoons... But, of course, I've -always- hated American cartoons...

im interested in all sorts of movies, be it american, asian, french or other european....i even watched egyptian oldies and some moroccan that has been subtitled when i lived in libya.

the problem is sometimes asian films can be over-exaggerated especially the acting and reactions.....but its good for comedy i guess> this is for the romantic ones ive watched so far....

and sometimes the european movies are too obscure when u first watch it....but i guess that's their charm....

american movies are the opposite of the french ones where you get handed everything in one plate....they practically shove it into u....

it depends on mood sometimes, and also variety is the spice of life....

Back then, in the old times, like th 40s or 50s american and european
movies were quite similar, but now since the american cinema became
much more popular, european filmmakers are wandering in independant,
alternative and experimental areas, so it has its own charm,.... but asian
cinema in the 40s and 50s were full of inscenerated esteticism, but now its
rather exagerated and full of dull compassion, compareable with the south
american cinema, but only on some points, but it doesn't mean its bad though
my favourite movies are all crossover the continents and genres....

You guys should really check out some european stuff. A few of my fav directors are from America, but Hollywood is a trash factory . In case you're interested in european directors, I suggest you check out these:

Older movies by:

Fritz Lang
Francois Truffaut
Pier Paolo Pasolini ( watch Mamma Roma, it's a classic, but sad as hell)

Recent movies by:

Pedro Almodovar ( nothing for homophobics )
Michael Haneke
Michel Gondry
Emir Kusturica ( gipsy hilariousness )

And there's many more, I can't think of right now

^ Aahhhh Firtz Lang, an Austrian Genius, i get nostalgic memories
when think about th first time i watched Metropolis, love at first sight!
and Truffaut, what a sadistic but the most estetic way to burn books!
Fahrenheit 451....just brilliant,...i am in awe of Oskar Werner, an other
Viennese...

Yeah I said this is an Euro and Asian film comaprison so why does america keep popping up?... I'm talking more so to the ppl who have something negative to say about american films there are already enough american bashing threads that if you have something to add please look those up but this thread isn't for that...
