Want to Read a Good Movie?

A Listmania! list by James N Simpson (Gold Coast, QLD Australia)
The list author says: "A lot of great books are turned into films, but not all are by Hollywood or studios in the UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand. Therefore you can't watch them with actors speaking English. Luckily some do have subtitles. So if you want to read a good movie you won't go wrong with these!"
Tell No One
1.  Tell No One DVD ~ Kristin Scott Thomas
The list author says:
  "Harlan Coben's classic novel.  Instead of being set in New York it's set in Paris but apart from that is pretty loyal to the book."
Used & New from: $3.99

Asterix & Obelix vs. Caesar (1999) Gerard Depardieu [All Region, Import]
2.  Asterix & Obelix vs. Caesar (1999) Gerard Depardieu [All Region, Import] DVD ~ Christian Clavier
The list author says:
  "The classic comic books on the big screen, this wasn't as good as the 2nd Mission Cleopatra.  Don't bother with the third Asterix and Obelix at the Olympic Games, even the actor who played Asterix wouldn't have a bar of it."

3.  Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra [Region 2] DVD ~ Alain Chabat

The Ax [Region 4]
10.  The Ax [Region 4]
