Yeah, but German dubbing is an art so you can't really knock it.

True, but last sunday they showed L'auberge espagnole on Premiere in a all-German, dubbed version. That movie was about people speaking 6 different languages yet living together, about Europe uniting... The German cinema version is like the one for "Bowling for Columbine", one German narrator, but everybody speaks it's own language with subtitles.

Many movies are virtually destroyed by the dubbing, something you only notice when you know the original. For example, the Danish movie "I kina spiser de hunde" is awful in German.

Of course, dubbing is much better than in countries which are not used to do that, like Denmark (movies for children are dubbed there, and they are usually awful). But I would still prefer the original, and fortunately in the age of DVD, more Germans are able to get the original language.

The only movie which really is better in German than in English is "Krieg der Sterne", Star Wars Episode IV - A new Hope. Harrison Ford is much better with his German voice  Smile

Dude is a colloquialism used as a generic nickname and a greeting. The word roots to the term used in big cattle ranching states (namely OK and TX) for a type of abscess on a cow's butt. It was used there for a long time as a derogatory term, but its current usage is more positive. It is about as versatile as the Hawai'ian word Aloha in that you can use it to express many emotions

Probably. I only saw one German movies dubbed, and I think I would hate other translated movies. The only movie I know in English did it pretty well though, it is Das Boot. Most English speakers were the actors themselves, so the movie is as authentic as it could be, even if it is nowhere near the original language, which also features the different dialects from the different parts of Germany, something which, of course, is lost in the English version.

Well, I guess it should be mentioned that when Finland was in it's true form, you know, Eastern Sweden, it was a part of Scandinavia. But that was more than two centuries ago, but nowadays; no. Scandinavia is Norway, Denmark and Sweden. Nothing more, nothing less.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scandinavia

"The most common definition includes continental Denmark, mainland Norway and Sweden. A broader interpretation would include the various insular territories belonging to Denmark and Norway, such as Greenland and Svalbard. Finland is commonly included, though it is not considered standard and often merits the broader term Fennoscandia."

There you go. Fennoscandia. Sounds ridiculous, I know. But hey, if you consider Finland to be an insular territory belonging to Sweden, sure, we'll agree that Finland is indeed, a part of Scandinavia.  duck
