OMG, those are even funnier than the LOTR and Batman Begins ones! Thank you so much, I am crying with laughter. I can't wait for the next installment!

I told you they were funny Chantelle! I showed them to my mum and she thought they were hilarious! ;D

Really Sheyne, thanks for sharing  ;D  Hilarious is an understatement!

This reminds of me when I see subtitles to the songs in Indian films and they have cheesy lines like 'my heart calls out to you my beloved your ears in my face...' LOL talk about literal translation. Always makes me laugh.

love to all,

Okay, here it is.. Was almost afraid to watch all the way through to the end for fear that these Malaysian subtitlers would stamp on our holy ground and truly screw up the lines that mess with our heads and hearts..  And yes, there are some doozies... too many to type for nearly 1am Brisbane, Aust time but I'm devoted to y'all and I'll miss some sleep to bring these to yer.

A digest of some interesting new plot developments.. The gal Ennis Balmore was puttin the blocks to was in fact called Patsy, not Cassie, and our main canoe-man Jack Twist was puttin blocks of his own to a guy called Grandall.  As Alma Jnr revealed in a tension filled scene, her mum and Robin have been awful "strick" on her (as for what happened to Monroe, we can only guess.. hope it has nothing to do with ammonia though or we may have to suspect Ennis's hand in it..)  Other interesting developments is that - contrary to what us fans of the "alternate" version believe - Jack's father "doesn't" know where Brokeback Mountain is - I mean, I always thought he did, but there you go.  And that the Twists have a family PLANT where Jack's ashes are going. Oh! And nobody in this tale is being kept on a short f**king leash. All this time, they were just being kept on a short f**king LIST. Hope this clears up any plot confusion for anybody (I honestly feel like I should be dragging on weed typing this...)

But the other butchered prose goes as follows:

LINE: You're safe. My feet hurt.
SUBTITLE: You see, my feet here hope.

LINE: And with the round up coming, I won't ever be home.
SUBTITLE: I want a round up common, I want everybody home

LINE: I guess I'll head on up to Lightening Flat.
SUBTITLE: I guess I had a bone light and flat.  (Mandy, it is in your capable hands to make something truly filthy out of this... its there, its all there, bones, flats...  >:D)

LINE: After we ship stock..
SUBTITLE: after we shit stuff..

LINE: We can hunt in November, kill us a nice elk...
SUBTITLE: We can hug on November, caress and nice oak.

LINE: This is a goddamn bitch of an unsatisfactory situation.
SUBTITLE: This is a goddamn non-side victory situation.  (how COULD they????)

LINE: Ennis, girls don't fall in love with fun!
SUBTITLE: Ennis doesn't fill and live and fun

LINE: He was cremated, like he wanted.
SUBTITLE: He was cramp at it like he wants it.

LINE: We got a family plot and he's goin in it.
SUBTITLE: Where you get a family plant, he's going at it...     (Hmrrmm, well, we can only wish he's goin at it BEHIND this plant.. and that somebody's filming it for us...  go Jack..)


There you have... The credits roll on Brokeback Through The Looking Glass...

love yas... night night... off to catch some zzzzz's... ;D
Chut up!

I get so emotionally and physically out of control when I read these, Sheyne.  I weep with laughter.  I don't understand why it does that to me.  I mean you all say really funny stuff all day and night roun here, and I enjoy it, and sometimes even do Laugh Out Loud, but this stuff is piss-in-the-pants.  You deserve an award for this oeuvre of yours.  Thank you so much.

This is fu**ing brilliant! I'm still in the office and to refrain from laughing out loud I've been making funny wheezing sounds like a choking puppy or something..

It's absolutely hilarious! Love it all!

I wonder what list Jack was on then?! Did Ennis have a secret list of lovers? Too short the list, for Jack? Why? He wanted more?!

Don't know how to hug a month, but the other stuff is good! Being one with Nature (minus the 'sh*t stuff').

That's just too sad. I'll ignore this.

Yeah, we kind of knew that already..

Hunh? How's it possible if earlier he was 'shi*ting stuff'?

Question Sheyne, do you mind if I post this on a French BBM forum? Some of them speak very good English and will understand.. (not sure about the Malayan sub-titles though..  ;D)

May I?
