I'd just read comments under the Chinese movie 'Twin Effect' here at CR (http://www.crunchyroll.com/showmedia?id=36387) and quite a few want 'Twin Effect' to be subtitled, not dubbed.

Which option below would you prefer when watching a movie?

A) have original dialogue dubbed in your native language

B) have the movie subtitled in your native language with its original dialogue intact

Why one is better than the other?

In your country, are foreign (including English)-language movies at cinema usually dubbed?

The majority of foreign-language movies in London, England, are usually subtitled. It's been ages since I watched a dubbed foreign movie at - usually, independent - cinema.

We preferred subtitled videos. Dubbed videos just make it obvious that it's been licensed and most people don't like dubs anyway. Especially in live action movies and shows.

I would prefer subbed. Besides the female voices are soooooooo beautiful compared to dubbed.

B ) Subbed all the way. It's really weird when the voices don't match up to the person...and besides that, you can also pick up a few choice words in a different language to use.

I've actually only been to see one subbed film which was tha Passion of the Christ. Other than that,, I've never really been to movie in a theater near me that had to be subbed or dubbed. I actually prefer subbed movies. I don't like movies where people are talking in another lanuguage and I can actually tell that they're not speaking English. I don't mind doing a little reading if its a good movie.

Subs any time. Dubs are just plain annoying, especially when they are in goofy regional accents.

Subbed whenever possible. The only times I watch dubbed anime are with the wife or if a series has subbed episodes missing and the only ones I can find elsewhere are dubbed.

One thing that I do enjoy as dubbed are the old martial arts movies. The voices are done so badly that they actually enhance the entertainment.

yea seriously subbed all the way. dubbed audio just doesnt sound right... i guess sometimes chinese movies r a lil better cuz mandarin & canto can sorta match up.. but still sometimes they get annoying sounding voice actors to play the part and it totally ruins the movie...
