  1. I can understand movies with latin or italian language..for the most part. I like subtitles for any languages I do not know. I watched the passion of the christ without subtitles and knew what everyone was saying.

    1. I’m with you.. Here in Québec, most American movies get dubbed, and it bugs me. I realize that it gives jobs to people, but I still prefer the original version, no matter the language.

    Comment on movie subtitles:
    I would prefer to have good subtitles instead of dubbed dialog. I haven’t seen a good dubbing in any movie – it is never in synch.

    On a flight home from Germany/Holland in 1997, they played a French language film with Dutch subtitles. I might as well have watched a silent movie. If it had been a German film, I might have had a chance to understand a little of it, even as rusty as my German was then.

    1. Here in Québec, most American movies get dubbed, and I must say they now do a pretty good job with the synch. But I still prefer to see them in the original version (since I understand English, obviously LOL).

      Other foreign films (like Danish ones, just giving a random example) I much prefer the original version with subtitles too, because getting the actor’s tone of voice usually carries much more emotion, even if you have to read what they’re saying.
