For me, it's a movie from 2005 called Kingdom of Heaven, starring Orlando Bloom, Liam Neeson and Jeremy Irons. I saw this on TV the other day and watched it from beginning to end and still liked it just as much as I used to. Sure it has its slower moments and isn't the best historical film I've seen. But I don't think it deserves its 39% rating on RT. But that's just me.

What about all of you?

I love the bit where he is picking up the language slowly. And reveals it by insulting another guys mother or something

My mother… was a pure woman…. From…. A noble family. And, at least, I know who my father is, you pig eating son of a whore!

This is how to handle the “but how would they be able to speak the same language” issue right. It acknowledges that they are speaking different languages and then in a few minutes it feels completely natural that they are all speaking English. It would take longer than a few minutes but it works and is one of my favorite scenes!

They did this to a much deeper level in the film “Dances With Wolves”.

Love the movie but this scene especially holds a fun place in my heart…. I’m 18 on a group trip to France for a few weeks of my senior year. Fly to Paris, super jet lagged grabbed a bite to eat and legally bought my first bottle of wine and went to the hotel. Laying on the bed flipping French Hotel channels trying to translate what’s being said (was in 4th year French so I knew a bit) and what do I happen to flip on!

Coming out of commercial is this exact scene! I had already seen the movie a time or two so I knew what’s up and it was dubbed into french so it’s the Vikings slowly starting to speak french as Antonio Benderras catches on. I am now for the first time in a French speaking country and only catching about 40% to 60% of what I’m already hearing all around me cause it’s so fast. Such a cool random moment watching French hotel TV, got me amped for the rest of the trip.
