Author Comments: 

I am a citizen of the U. S. A and I write my lists from the perspective of being an American. The process I go through when I list a movie: I go to http://us.imdb.com/ to look up the exact title, list of actors/actresses, date of release, and country of origin in an attempt to make my lists as accurate as possible. If the movie's country of origin does not list the US first, then I consider it foreign. My definition of foreign is WEBSTER'S NEW WORLD DICTIONARY OF THE AMERICAN LANGUAGE'S definition, "1. situated outside of one's own country...2.from...another country or countries." In making a distinction between films made in the U. S. A and films made outside of the U. S. A., no offense is intended.
