Hah! That's an awesome poster :D

Only problem is the use of the tú form... I'd think Inigo would use the Usted form: "Ud. mató a mi padre...prepárese a morir!" (¡Corríjame si no soy correcto!)

Peace,
JT

In Shakespearean English, the familiar form "thou" is used not only for beloved friends and family but also to talk down to someone the speaker holds in contempt. I would think it's the same in Spanish, isn't it?

I'm not so sure about that, cerulean... "Usted" is formal, and used for speaking with strangers. "Tú" is a familiar form used to speak with family and friends. If I'm not mistaken, French also has two forms of addressing another person.

It really depends where you are,
I know in Spain usted is used, but its much less common than the french vous.
Most South American friends that I have seem to use Vos, or something similar.
It could really go either way, the usted/tu thing isnt very strict.

Ahhh, sweet memories. :) Saw the movie with my kids a couple of months ago and they loved every bit of it. It is a true (cult) classic.

My experience with French is that it is very strict: "tu" is familiar and "vous" is formal. I wouldn't know about Spanish.
