I need a Babelfish 2

A day at the movies…

So, I forgot to mention in my last post that I went to go see Hero this weekend. For the second time since I’ve been here, I’ve been screwed by foreign films. Y’know what’s difficult? Trying to watch a film in one language with subtitles in another, when neither are languages you speak. I really enjoyed the movie, but I’m sure I would’ve enjoyed it more if I could speak spanish better – as it was I was able to understand most of what was going on, but I’m sure there are subtleties that I just didn’t get. Of course, seeing as I wouldn’t have been hearing it anyway even if it was subtitled in english, I’m sure I would have missed some things regardless. One of the downsides of foreign films, I think – no matter how much you get from one, you likely miss something because the intricacies of the languages are different. Unfortunate – maybe a Babelfish would help.
