Excellent Film - In English with some subtitles.
The (new) Karate Kid 6.2
The Spy Next Door (5.2)
(3*'s but a good laugh)

I liked the new film. Not really a remake and should have been called Kung Fu Kid. What spoiled this one for me was the hero and his girl needed to be 3 or 4 years older to make it more believable.
Beat the Drum
(South African) 6.9 - "Young Musa is orphaned after a mysterious illness strikes his village in KwaZulu Natal. To help his grandmother, Musa sets out for Johannesburg with his father's last gift, a tribal drum, in search of work and his uncle." (+4*'s)
The Snow Walker
(7.5) - "A pilot and his passenger struggle for survival after crashing in the Arctic tundra." 4*'s
...looking at my list on page 1 I'd say the films rated by IMDB at 8.0 or higher are the 5* movies - the notable exception is "The World's Fastest Indian which they rate at 7.9 as this is one of my favorite films (but we all have our own ratings anyway).
