Language practice through movies

Всем привет! Я хочу смотреть фильмы и говорит с кем-нибудь об этих. Я буду предлагать американские фильмы и мой собеседник буду предлагать фильмы по-русский язык. Мы будем объяснять сюжет совсем. Кто-нибудь интересуется?

I'm looking for a conversation partner to discuss films. I would suggest a popular American movie, and they would suggest a Russian language movie. We would watch them separately, then time to discuss the two plots over Skype/Whats App/whatever. It will help with listening skills, conversation, and some fun pop culture! Please let me know if you're interested!

Большое спасибо!

Yup.

Watching movies with subtitles is very helpful too. First, watch the movie with English subtitles (or your own language) and then watch it a second time with subtitles in your target language. Because you've already seen the movie, the second time around becomes all about understanding the conversations and seeing it in action will make a lot of it stick. You can also pause the movie and rewind to make the best out of it.

I'll correct two lines:
Всем привет! Я хочу смотреть фильмы и с кем-нибудь о них говорить. (... с кем-нибудь их обсуждать. discuss)
Я буду предлагать американские фильмы,...
....а мой собеседник — русские.
....а мой собеседник — фильмы на русском.
....а мой собеседник — русскоязычные.


I decided to comment, because 'a' (together with all Russian constructions unparalleled in English:-)) is hardly used by advanced learners (being basic as 'and'). And this situation is a perfect use case for it.
