#31. Movie Subtitles

Inception (2010)

Inception (2010)

I like to listen to the actors’ real voices. I like their words and the movement of their lips to be in sync. I like to understand the idioms and the jokes that get lost in translation. I like to pay attention to the screenplay. I like to hear the accents.

That’s why I’ll always go for subtitles, and I’ll think it twice–or thrice–before watching a dubbed movie. Half of its essence gets lost in translation.
