    I would have liked better that everyone spoke their own language in the movies. I really liked that in Apocalypto, regardless of the subtitles.

    The Passion of the Christ did the same thing and it was wonderful. I love it when movies do that.

    That would be cool. And not that anyone said otherwise, but we only have a smattering of actual Westron of course, including some names.

    (Ban = "Sam" for instance)
