I am interested in getting Chinese Mandarin movies with English subtitles as a supplement for learning the Chinese language. I have looked at several Asian DVD web sites (in the U.S.) and most of the movies are from Hong Kong with the audio in Mandarin/Cantonese with English subtitles. I have read that Cantonese is the primary language spoken in Hong Kong. Are most of these Hong Kong videos recorded in Cantonese and dubbed in Mandarin for the second sound track? If so, that would not be desirable for me. In order to get what I want, I am not sure if I will need a Region 3 (or all region) DVD player. I do not want to incur the extra cost without reason. If the actors in Hong Kong movies speak in Mandarin (i.e., are not dubbed in Mandarin) would there be any reason for getting Region 3 DVDs anyway? I rented Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon on VHS and it worked out well for me. However, I watched it with a Chinese friend and she said that the accents were not the best Mandarin accents. This causes me to wonder if there would be an advantage of Region 3 movies if I could get them. On the other hand, maybe trying to get Region 3 movies would not be worth the trouble. Comments will be appreciated.
