Ok, I'm not sure where to post this so I posted it here, it may belong in Movies or HTSoftware (It could go in polls maybe), so mods, move if needed. Here goes: Around where I live, most people's first language is french (Myself included). But the problem is, a lot of people here believe it is right to watch a movie dubbed in french. Some will go as far as promoting the idea of staying with VHS for the sole reason that all movies are available in french (Yep, try to rent Ghost World or O Brother Where Art Thou in french... These were NEVER dubbed!) So basically, this place is filled with J6Ps that are not only OAR-Uneducated but OSL-Uneducated and believe that this is not important as long as it's the same movie. With some relatives and work collegues I've been going about the following debate. If we suppose that I hook up with a girlfriend who speaks only french, should I be willing to accept watching all my movies dubbed in french (Which I refer to as WASTING a movie!) I was involved in a "Relationship" for 3 years with a girl, and what I regretted the most about it was wasting movies (Cases like Cruel Intentions or Mystery Man which I saw by myself properly, then watched with her a few days later in french don't count as wasting but it still annoys me) So I made the promise to NEVER, EVER under no consideration watch a movie in french again A lot of people are telling me stuff like "The day you will truly be ready to love someone is the day you will be willing to break that promise.". Or when i say things like "It sickens me to hear about people who understand that OSL is better but are willing to waste movies because their g/fs are too lazy to watch them properly or read subtitles". They tell me stuff like "But you're alone." Should I go by my beliefs and stick to OSL no matter what? Any good arguments to counter the J6Ps that claim that it's ok to watch a movie dubbed? Why should french always win apart from the way this province thinks about french domination? I mean, can't I use the argument that the movie was MADE in english? Or can't it work the other way around? "If a girl is truly ready to love me, she should be willing to make that sacrifice". Should I move out of the province where insisting on OSL is not oppressed? Note: I don't mind putting french subs though, and for foreign films which I read anyway, I don't mind reading them in french instead of english.
