    Re: Movie in english

    By now, I think you should remember that English (as is any language) is capitalized.
    That/this/the movie is dubbed in English.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    You can and should do better, tufguy. You have talent. You get some subtle things exactly right. But then you are sometimes lazy about easy things.

    I am not a teacher.

    That sentence is correct.

    While we're on the subject of capital letters, Hollywood is a proper noun.

    Whether it's a Hollywood movie or not is irrelevant. Either the original soundtrack is in English or it's not. If it is, then "The/this/that movie is in English" is correct. If it's not, then "The/this/that movie is not in English" and "The/this/that move is in [language]" are correct.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
