Well, some of my movies were made in Germany, with American actors, and
released in the Czech Republic. I have the Czech version; but the movie
has 3 legitimate titles. Do I use the US, German, or Czech title?
Likewise some of the Japanese movies were re-released in the US with
slight changes and english dialogue. I have the Japanese DVDs but I would
assume most tmdb user have the US version.
So far TMDB seems to be on a first-come-first serve basis; it would be
nice to have a locale or preferred language.
If you have eight hours to chop down a tree
spend six sharpening your axe.
