I'm trying to view movie info in English and also have the title in the original language, but settings doesn't work anymore (last time I thought about this it was working fine for me).

Here's my account settings

You posted the same screenshot twice, so I'm not sure which title you were referring to.

When you choose United States in the title settings, you are supposed to see US titles for films that have a US-specific title. But sometimes such a title is not available, so you may see your local title instead.

If you choose Original in the title settings you will always see the title that IMDb has identified as the film's original title.

Title display country is set to English.

That's a good example because the film is Canadian, but you specified United States in your settings, so the system doesn't recognize it as a title that should be displayed to you.

Unfortunately that's just not the way it is programmed.
