mediareport was kind enough to support MeFi with a donation. Their request was for six recent films that were big hits outside of the US but didn't get much attention stateside. There was a problem, though, in that I was only able to narrow the field to 14 films. Fortunately Soap_and_Bathetic kicked in an extra $15 to push me to share the entire list. I'll be using the tag #PopcornWorld

Donate $25 or more to MeFi and you can MeMail me a request for a themed day of your own. I'll fill up the sidebar on FF with six movies that fit your theme.

Zhang Yimou makes a historical spy thriller with Zhang Yi. Easy sell.
