The answer to your question is as follows:
There are lot of sources to increase your language skill and correct it, like reading English literatures, News papers and listing lectures etc, while watching films and enjoining entertainment is prohibited in Islam. And it is the rule of Islamic Shariah that anything has both good and bad effect than it avoidable because bad and harmful effect, the same has been mentioned in Holly Quran regarding wine and gambling Allah Almighty says: They ask you about wine and gambling. Say, ¡°In both there are great sin, and some benefits for people. And their sin is greater than their benefit.¡± (Surah Al Baqrah, Verse-219), and finely both are prohibited in Islam. So any way you can not watch the film. (And Allah Knows The Best)
