Re: European maps on social issues

Is voice over still prevalent in big cities' cinema like Moscow, St.Petersburg, Warsaw etc? Even for blockbusters?

Re: European maps on social issues

I don't know if they still do it like that on Polish TV, but some years ago they used to have voice-overs with a single man with the flattest, most monotonous voice imaginable covering all the roles - men, women, children. It was so awful it was bordering on hilarious.

I watched that and he sounds quite normal to me. I haven't seen the movie though, neither in English nor in my mother tongue.

I guess it's just a matter of taste or you may be influenced by having heard Hanks speaking in his native English. Consequently, any dubbing attempt automatically involves the risk of sounding weird.

JMHO

Yes, that's it I don't think I had ever heard something as bizarre before that. I don't think it's possible to get used to it unless you've lived with it all your life. And yeah, from what I heard, the Poles really do love it. I find it completely incomprehensible.

I don't know if it's actually worse than Ukrainian TV, though. They'd have Russian voice-over (with at least several people doing the job, so it was more like dubbing), but the sound was a couple of seconds delayed, so you'd get to hear some of the original as well. And then there were subtitles in Ukrainian on top of that. After a few minutes it was enough to make your head start spinning.

I can vouch for that. I was at a Polish household last week

Re: European maps on social issues

That map is such BS. Tennis is obviously not the "main" (whatever it means) sport in Russia (and no, neither is figure skating), and basketball in Bosnia and Greece isn't either.

Indeed. Would like to know the criteria for this map. Football is the most popular sport in Greece and in Bosnia as well. Probably in Russia too.

I wasn't even aware that our one-man voice-over system is so weird and unique until maybe a few years ago And to be honest I prefer it over dubbing which is completely ridiculous as you can't hear the actors's voices at all.

I don't think you can find voice-overs in Polish cinemas anymore. Kids/animated movies are available with dubbing and everything else is with subtitles. That 'weird' Polish voice-over is now only available on TV

Re: European maps on social issues

What does "main sport" mean in that graph?

People practicing it (unlikely)? TV ratings?

Re: European maps on social issues

It's very difficult to determine really. But if they go by what people are practicing then it would invlove how many clubs there are registered, how many people take part of clubs activity etc.

Another option would be to look at how many people take part of the competitions (amateur or professional), but I suspect it's not the case, otherwise running/jogging would top football, no?

And then the TV ratings plus ticket sales. But this one is a slippery road because if they don't show gymnastics on TV how would it get a rating. And if one sports event is on a big arena while the other one isn't, is it fair to compare the ticket sales..

Probably some teenage map geek made the map while surfing the net in his basement
