Looks Good

Looks interesting, and I can kind of follow it, but I have an old saved- from-VHS-to-DVD edition that has no subtitles file! Thankfully, it's not dubbed either, but I can't understand all the Italian, especially when they're arguing. I'll accept any language that Google Translate can handle to English. They're usually in a file with the extension "srt". (If they're not burned into the video track). Please message this account if you have one!

Minimum length? So much for brevity being the essence... . One, two, three. One, two, three. Five, seven. Is that long enough? No? Do some metrics. Where'd you come up with the magic number 10? Blank check information technology...
