I rented "legend of the eight Samurai" (Sonny Chiba), and turned it off after 2 minutes because it was dubbed in English, and had no Japanese language track (and the crappy soundtrack didn't help). I mean, I already knew it was a sucky B movie, but the fact that it was in English made it completely unwatchable. So please give me the titles of other crappy Japanese movie DVDs that are dubbed without the option to listen to the Japanese language track. I wish to avoid them at all costs, so anyone who knows of a Japanese movie DVD that is only dubbed, list it here. Please!

I had exactly the same response that you did. Though I actually watched it to the end. And promptly got rid of it. Mad

I don't know why they bother with dubbing. The actors who do the dubbing would be better off in basket-weaving or doing brain surgery. Evil or Very Mad

Could ANY ONE imagine SEVEN SAMURAI or SEPPUKU (HARA KIRI) being dubbed???!!! Twisted Evil Sad

I have come across one or two anime films that I thought sounded ok (or even good) dubbed - Princess Mononoke the best example.

But normally dubs of any foreign film sound crap, because:

a) They normally get washed-up actors/actresses to do it.
b) It's just so weird to hear Asian people with English/US accents!

But Billy-Bob Thornton? BILLY-FRIKKIN-BOB THORNTON? There is no way he belonged in that dub list. And he just phoned the damned thing in, it was so flat.
