Dubbed Movies and TV Series - Movies & TV Category Challenge
just noticed that there are a lot of foreign movies and tv shows dubbed in our local language. seriously, i'm all for the advancement of the use of our local language and dialects and even for fostering love for our national language but i find movies and tv series dubbed in 'tagalog' mind-numbing.
case in point, the good english movies being shown by one of the local channels at various times of the day. they show dubbed movies in the afternoon and evening and truth be told these are really great movies and i find the character speaking in our local language more distracting than amusing. this is the case of the movie being shown when i thought of this post. granted it wasn't an oscar -winer. it may be a b rated at its best but 'rise of the gargolyes' sounded really funny at times with the dubbed language.
same thing with the tele-novelas and koreanovelas that the other networks are showing. all of these are dubbed in our local language. i remember when the leading lady of a very popular korean show was interviewed by one of the local showbiz talk shows, the interviewer was asking question in english and the lead actress answers were dubbed in our local language. i understand that there is a need to make these shows more accessible to the masses and dubbing it in 'tagalog' is one way of doing that but come on, we aren't the leading english-speaking nation in asia for nothing!!! plus, don't networks add costs to these shows because they have it dubbed? i must be missing the point and in case i am please enlighten me. is this a local or regional practice or are other countries doing it as well?
what say you my fellow PPers? please feel free to chime in. cheers!
