    Dubbing is for the lazy, I much prefer subtitles as well.

    I don't tend to like British movies. Some are ok, like Monty Python and such. But I don't know, the British of an odd sense of humor that doesn't always translate. For other things, I watch a lot of anime and subtitles are the way to go on that one. Sometimes the English dub can be good, and as of late they've been putting more emphasis on getting better English voice acting; but I like it in the original Japanese. Same with old kung-fu movies, I prefer it to be in Chinese with subtitles. I saw this one French movie...it had wolves or something in it...it was wierd. Saw this movie from New Zealand called Black Sheep (Black Sheep (2006/I)) made me never want to go to New Zealand. Seems worse than Iowa.

    Omg, one of the worst films I have seen. Such a bad move. Ranks at my bottom list alongside "tropical thunder" and "lions for lambs", and "eagle eye" as the worst movies I have seen in 2008, and thats a huge list of movies.

    Heck, half the time it seems like I watch more things in other languages than I do in English, especially if you extend it to TV shows as well. I'm watching a really excellent Japanese drama right now called Bloody Monday about a terrorist plot to release a biological agent into Tokyo.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    That's based on a manga. Japanese TV in general is pretty good. They have some crazy things from time to time, but they have the best game shows in the world, their live action stuff is pretty good. Though I'm rather biased as I am enamored with Japan. It's a crazy place, I'd love to live there for a few years.

    I think American Dad has a lot of potential but isn't there quite yet, with a little tweaking A.D. could be as good as Family Guy, BTW, Cleveland Brown from Family Guy is supposed to be getting a spin-off show in the near future.

    I've been there a couple of times, I love the country but I wouldn't want to live there long-term, just not my kind of culture. That doesn't mean they don't make great TV and movies though.
