Smile Movie time!

I recently watched,
Lord of the Rings: Two Towers

With Spanish subtitles

I thought it was an educational process.

However I have a few questions too;
- does Barbol literally translate to Tree beard?
- is this movie in Hispanic Spanish? or another?


What movies do you watch in Spanish?

Barbol is a name, it means nothing, but I don't like Lord of the Rings so I don't truly know.

It depends, you can find it with Lationoamerica subs or Spain subs, or even with Mexican subs.

What movies do you watch in Spanish?
Hmmm... movies with Spanish as original language..., hmm, this week I saw two of them:
Nicotina (you are going to find Mexican Spanish and a little bit of Argentinian Spanish)
Amores Perros
(Mexican Spanish)
Both are good movies.

I have seen the Infierno movie, because that movie has a lot of idioms in the letter movie.

I recommending you that movie.

Hello Sosia.

How are you?

I have a question about your barbol movie, the question is who acted in that movie, it's sound as Mexican movie, but I'm not very sure, I can reach a little remind that.

I wait your advice.

About the name "barbol"
Barbol has no meaning in spanish.
Seeing now that the original english name was "treebeard"-->"tree beard"-->"arbol barba"-->"BARba de árBOL"-->"barbol"
Is only a play of words. But nobody will understand it not knowing the original english.
Saludos
