Never dub, always subtitles

One thing I realized about my Netflix reviews-- they all assume that you're watching the movie in its original language for audio. I hate dubbed dialog. Conversely, I watch all movies with subtitles on. English ones too.

I gave Joint Security Area 5 stars but it would be less for the dubbed version, which I guess some people would watch by default.

I love South Korean movies. They're always 5 genres at once. Comedy-monster-movie or mystery-war-movie. It's way more interesting than most Hollywood tripe. (Or most Iranian art-house flicks or "tasteful New Yorker world cinema" or whatever)

Basically, South Korea owns cinema at the moment
