I love subtitles!!

I love watching DVDs with the subtitles turned on..
So naturally, last night, i put the Hitch DVD into the player (which i borrowed from a friend who got it from a neighbouring country... hehe) and turned on the subtitles...

After a few minutes.. i was confused..
What's going on??
So i rewinded.. and fowarded and rewinded the dvd to re-read the subtitles...

Hitch : Basic principle, no woman wakes up saying, "God, I wish I don't get swept off my feet today."
Subtitles : Base nothing there is no woman wake up to spell out members, "God I hope I do not sweat today"

Hitch : Now, she might say, "this is a bad time for me."
Subtitles : Now he she possible spell out member, "this is really ugly time for me."

Hitch : Or something like, "I just need some space."
Subtitles : Or possible like, "I is butuh a few little room."

Hitch : Or my personal favourite, "I'm really into my career right now."
Subtitles : Or hobby of my favourite, "I really step into my career now."

Hitch : Basic Principle, no matter what, no matter when, no matter who, every man has a chance to sweep any woman off her feet. You just need the right broom.
Subtitles : Easy base, non chalent when is non chalent of whom, there is people have opportunity to go out from its field. Only needing couple of pengantin compatible.

Hitch : In case you didn't go to high school, hitting is a good thing.
Subtitles : Go to *SMU is good matter.

The subtitles was too funny! haha
But it was too distracting... so i had to turn off the subtitles...

Yeah, I might watch it again with the subtitles another time.. hehehhee It's so entertaining!

*It has nothing to do with the Singapore Mgt Uni.. It's some abbreviation for the high school qualification in one of the neighbouring countries, i think.

The more I read, the more I confuse! But that's the 're-watchability' of the movie coz you got two 'storylines' instead of one. Haha.

The subtitles are so badly written. If you don't say, I really thought SMU is the SMU. (That's a good one. Go to *SMU is good matter.)

wah lah.. pirate no standard these days.. all fly by night one.

phoenich said...

Knowing they translated high school to SMU, i think i know which neighbouring country u referred to ...

but oh well, our english standard is quite low. Maybe they translate by the help of dictionary (aka direct translation :P)

Hahaha... Whoever did the subtitles was a MAT!

phoenich, you don't need to translate to make a subtitle. (Unless they hear the japanese-dubbed version of Hitch)
They just got bad ear or very tight deadline to catch...
