IMDB going English

Sometime in the past few days the Internet Movie Database appears to have changed from using the original non-English names for many foreign movies. Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo is now Sergio Leone’s The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain is now Amelie. Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi is now Miyazaki’s Spirited Away. Amores perros is now Love’s a Bitch.

But it seems to not be English that’s the headline title, but how the movie is known in (presumably) the US. For example, Das Boot has not been renamed ‘The Boat’.
