Wonder why the BBC did not release Tiny Giants 3D, Wings 3D or Planet Dinosaur 3D in the UK?I see that Tiny Giants is a ‘BBC Earth’ title yet it’s proving difficult to find in the UK.
It’s a mystery, when I saw BBC Earth on the cover I thought eBay UK for a few £ at most. Most peculiar!.
Good to know. I've had this on a wish list for a while but have not yet pulled the trigger.Shot especially for 3D, as if you didn't know...and it really shows. There 's a good 5 mi. extra on how they filmed it in 3D, but it's not in 3D. Great story, almost everything is practical effects and super audio. I tried it in Russian with English subs, but it wasn't right. So I switched to English audio and they did a very good job of dubbing. A real must for your collections.
To each his own. I always listen to the original language when watching a foreign language film. The dubbing is usually horrendous and takes away from the actors performances. I remember sampling the dubbing on Stalingrad and my opinion remains the same.My guess is John just didn't like the subs so went with dubbed, that's what I did.
absolutely, and I agree some dubbing is awful but I will take that over subtitles and 3D. I thought we recently watched Stalingrad but I can’t remember much about it. I will have to watch it again.To each his own. I always listen to the original language when watching a foreign language film.

As Bong Joon Hoo recently said after winning one of his many awards for the brilliant Parasite...
‘Once you overcome the one-inch tall barrier of subtitles, you will be introduced to so many more amazing films’
I'm not really averse to subtitles occasionally, and I'm a pretty fast reader, but I feel the same way if a film is very dialogue-intensive. At that point, you may as well just be reading the printed screenplay as you're missing most of the actors performances and visual aspects of the film.I find with subtitles that I don’t see the actors performance at all. My eyes stay at the bottom as I do nothing but read.
You're more than welcome Robert. You'll have to come over and we'll see how the acoustic panels work out. I have to have Don (another HTF member) over also to see if those panels sound good to him.Just wanted to thank John Sparks for being such a gracious host and allowing me to watch a 3D movie at his place, even though he wasn't able to at the time. You're great, John.
