I enjoy a good movie

Flipping around the channels tonight I happened upon From Dusk Till Dawn running on WSBK. Tarrantino's movies are always fun to watch on broadcast TV, especially if you're familiar with the original. About half the dialogue is not in the original actors' voices because of the dubbing, and in the case of FDTD, there's plenty of visual editing as well the name of the bar, clothes put onto people, etc.). But I was pleased to see (hear?) that they didn't cut out this classic bit of dialogue:

    "What's your name?"
    "Kate. What's yours?"
    "Sex Machine. Nice to meet you, Kate."
    "You too."
Maybe someday we'll get our dubbing technology to where we won't be able to tell what's been dubbed and what's original - somehow synthesize the original voice. Sure would make watching the movies a lot easier.
