Excellent Film - In English with some subtitles.

The (new) Karate Kid 6.2 (4*'s barely)

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).
Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775.
