Hi all! I thought we could have some fun in listing English subtitles goof-ups in the Region 1 DVD. This is strictly meant to be fun; please delete if this is inappropriate. When I saw gem number 1 below, I felt I HAD to start this thread! Very Happy I hope all of you contribute! Especially if similar goof-ups appear in other languages, too!

Starting from the funniest: Laughing

1. At wedding feast, Oxyartes : "Lord Sikander, ruler of ..."
in subtitle, "Raw skunk, ruler of ....."
Alexander the "raw skunk"! Shocked

2. Fat eunuch showing Bagoas off: "Nicely gelded..."
in subtitle, "nicely gilded"
Gilded in gold or silver? Razz

3. At wedding feast, Cleitus to Hephaistion, "Shouldn't you be bowing to the King?"
in subtitle, "Shouldn't you be bound to the King?"
Yes, he should be! Razz

4. On eve-of-Gaugemela, Alexander about Craterus, "Who needs gloves when you come from Thrace?"
in subtitle, "Who needs gloves when you come from ?"Grace
Craterus didn't come from Thrace OR Grace..... Wink
