Agreed. Dubbing is a horrible practice which should be outlawed as an affront to art. (just my opinion
) I noticed that in France, most of the theatres there would show Hollywood flicks with dubbed French tracks. I can't remember the last time I saw a film in the US with dubbing, in the theatre. To me, hearing the actual actors' voices is an essential part of the movie experience.
re: the movies of late:Mission to Mars
was insanely bad. It's only redeeming quality was that it occasionally breached the line into that category of "so bad it's funny". Good lord, there were more platitudes in there than a Lifetime movie. What a waste of a good idea. The Lake House
was disappointing. I knew it was a schmaltzy love flick, but I'd read some decent reviews, so I'd hoped that there may be a hidden depth as well. Alas, that was not the case. There were some nice bits of humor tucked here and there, but all in all it was quite flat.Bad Taste
: an apt title indeed. I was lured into this film by talk of "early Peter Jackson" " a classic", etc. Pah! To my knowledge, I have never before been so bored and so stifling the urge to vomit, as I was with this movie. Oh, the humanity. Little Miss Sunshine
: I posted about this in another thread, but I can't say enough good things about this movie. I loved it. Good humor through and through. :uP:
We recently watched a couple of second-time arounds for me too. Rashomon
was enjoyable, but a bit slower than I had remembered. The Shawshank Redemption
pleased as much as it did the first time around, although I think my movie partner was a bit less impressed. I absolutely adore this movie though, so I'm glad I have lots of time to convince IS of the error of his ways.
