Badly Dubbed Movies & Shows Can Still Be Good Entertainment
Hi all! I know I’ve been off and on with my blogging for a while…long story, I will get to that in another post.
For now, I want to rant a little about something.
For the most part, I am not a person that likes dubbed or subtitled movies and shows. Normally, I find it hard not to be distracted by the poor dubbing, and…If I’m being honest, I find subtitles annoying. Look, if I wanted to read a story, I’d pick up a book!…
Anyway, I’m getting distracted from my main point. And that is NOT ALL badly dubbed movies or shows are bad.
Let me put it another way.
I love hearing stories from people. As I am sure most of the people on the internet are the same way…otherwise, Reddit wouldn’t be so popular!
Give me a book, a show, or a movie with a gripping story to tell and I will read/watch that stuff till my eyes dry out from not blinking. Of course, when I come across good stories, I tell the people around me to check it out for themselves.
Most of my friends and family are like me; they can stand poorly dubbed entertainment, and a movie or show with all subtitles drives them up the proverbial wall. So for the most part, whenever I recommend something for them to watch, I tend to have it be mostly spoken in English and with limited to no subtitles.
However, I recently became a fan of a show on Netflix called The Money Heist.
This show revolves around a group of robbers and thieves who ‘knock over’ government-owned establishments while wearing red jumpsuits and Salvador Dali masks. The show is based in Spain…so as to be expected, most of the characters are speaking Spanish. Unfortunately, I bearly know English; so understanding this show in its original language was a bit out of my wheelhouse.
I turned on the English dubbing. Surprisingly, the story grabbed my attention so much I was able to ignore the out-of-synch voices and mouth movements. The voice actors they were able to get to do the English dubbing did a wonderful job and whoever casted them really knew what they were doing.
I bring this up because I shared how much of a fan I was to my family and friends and once I said it was dubbed, they stopped caring.
So, you know what?! I’m going to do what every fan of something does; turn to the internet for people who like the show!! Come on strangers!! if you know the show and you like it as much as I do, then comment below AND hit the like button!
