    The Thai's have gone so far as dubbing silent movies such as Charlie Chaplin.

    ^It's the same 3 Thai people that have dubbed foreign films for about 50 years?

    Man with over-polite / comedic speaking voice. Simpering, breathless female. Old person. From Shakespeare to fucking Transformers, its the same three people doing the voices.

    Pulp Fiction . . . simply no way to get the fantastic turns of phrase into another language so effectively . . . the 'banal' discussions etc. . .

    Look at that, accident black spot! These aren't accidents! They're throwing themselves into the road glady! Throwing themselves into the road to escape all this hideousness! Throw yourself into the road, darling! You haven't got a chance!

    Not so much a liguistic translation, but a trans-cultural one.
    Really doesn't fit.

    I see that on 'Youtube'. I don't know how they got around the censors?
    24 Charlie Chaplin videos are also on the censorship lists.

    Actually I think you'd be surprised. If done correctly Thai language has a multitude of phrase for innuendo and nuances.

    For example the the scene where the black guy gets hit shit pushed in would most likely be dubbed with the phrase "att tuar dam" which translates roughly as "pummeled with black peanuts" and is a way of implying getting butt fucked. Go ahead and ask your missus and see how she reacts if you don't believe me

    Believe me when you hear Robocop doing his best "sawat-dii khrap" you know the dubbing is missing something.

    ^The King and I? I thought it was a face saving thing, which was why it was banned, because it was true, I heard?

    Also, funny someone mentioned 'Borat'...I bought a DVD copy of 'Bruno' for about B29 at BigC and watched it dubbed into Thai with the wifey. It was a bizarre spectacle to say the least.

    how about:

    Boyz In the Hood
    Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure
    The English Patient
    Braveheart
    A Clockwork Orange
    The Birdcage
    Natural Born Killers
    The Cell
    Friday

    and I'd love to see 2001: A Space Odyssey and have HAL 9000 deliver this line in Thai (or maybe Isaan)
