Good movies for learning English

Sometimes, I find it easier to learn so many English vocabulary and expressions and usage by watching movies. If you're a non-native English speaker, you probably noticed some of them that help you learn.

What are good movies you watched that are great for learning English?

"The Big Lebowski" is a movie that I would recommend to anyone. It's really funny and the main characters repeat many of the same expressions throughout the movie.

"Coming to America" is another great comedy starring Eddie Murphy. Some cultural references may go over your head, but it's a classic and it uses a lot of simple English.

"Pulp Fiction" is one of my favorite movies because it tells the story in such an interesting way. It's great if you want to learn how to swear in engish lol. It is really really violent and could be offensive to some, but it is a cinematic masterpiece nonetheless.

"The Office (the American version)" was one of the most popular television shows in America. It is a really good option for learning American slang and sayings. It's also hilarious.

I'll just list some others:

Gran Torino

Seinfeld (television)

Game of Thrones (television, a good option if you want to hear British english.)

Dumb and Dumber

South Park (television)

Hopefully something on this list will work for you. Feel free to message me if you want more suggestions. Good luck!

I think you should watch movies which adapt to your interests, otherwise, you may feel boring after a while. Also, it depends on your purpose of learning English, some people learn general English, others prepare for international tests. For me, I am about to take the IBT, so I prefer academic, and documentary movies which may be watched on Youtube. For general English, I recommend white collar, and Person Of Interest. these series are amazing, and the entire accents are so clear to be easily understood.
