Do you ever watch Foreign Films?

Do you watch films that have sub titles or when they take a Foreign Film and change the voices to American English? I would rather read sub titles, then the bad dubbing of lip movement to words you hear.

  • I love foreign films. Pans Labyrinth and Martyrs are two of my favorite foreign horror movies...i hate dubbing with a passion and 90% of the time the dubbing is done by horrible actors...i'd rather read subtitles

  • i watch a Forgein film the other day, it was made in 1946 and it was called "Beauty and the Beast". the move had subtitles which i liked cause i couldn't understand a word the actors was saying.

  • Yes, I like foreign films and wish they were shown more often at big theatres!

    And I like them subbed, not dubbed.

    Wasn't a huge fan of "Amelie", personally.

    ^^shorty, I have also seen that production of "Beauty and the Beast". It's French and wonderful!

    "Happiness of the Katakuris" is hilarious, and "Thirst, this is my blood" is a fantastic Korean film if you want to see REAL vampires.
