The Comic With Hainanese Dialogue 3

Singlish subtitles provided as usual. Added Chinese translations as the Hainanese lingo can almost be translated word-for-word. Have fun :)

Editor: Ay, what're you doing?
编辑: 喂, 你在做什么?

女: 我跟这'大小孩'买玩具.

Woman: Ay, but if you say 'toys' hor, he don't like one. Must say 'COLLECTIBLE', you know or not.

Star Wars is one of those movie series where a fan doesn't get tired from repeated viewing. Although i have to confess i doze off watching Episode IV: A New Hope quite a few times :p

i still love the impressive advanced effects of Episodes I, II and III :)

Mockingbird possibly does not belong to the generation for whom the special effects of Star Wars in the 70s-80s was something amazing.

I remembered one of my pupils, who saw the re-release of IV before I. He was like, "huh?" after he watched it. He has seen much better stuff in his lifetime. :)

I am not Hainanese, but finds it easy to follow the dialogue, because I'm Hokkien. :)

I'm guilty of buying "collectibles" sometimes.

Mockingbird said...

i was born in 1972. When i watched Episode IV for the 1st time, i was only 6 years old :) i remember being carried by my dad in Odeon cinema watching the one of the final sequences where Darth Vader was chasing after Luke Skywalker in the trench of the Death Star.

Somehow, i still prefer the vastly superior CG effects of Episodes I, II and III, compared to IV.

I do like the special editions of Episodes IV, V and VI though :p

Sensei Michael said...

You are so lucky, mockingbird! At that age, my family could not afford movies. My first exposure was The Empire Strikes Back, *then* I retroactively watched IV on video...

Star Wars is THE most misunderstood movie of all time, despite being THE most epic Sci-Fi movie of all time.

True Star Wars fans despice the PT (Prequel Trilogy), despite their advanced CGI rendering and spectacular visual effects.

Star Wars can only be appreciate if you take the time to understand how it was created, why it was created, and the journey it took from being words on a notepad to a full-length movie.

And guys wearing Slave Leia costume to American Idol audition, and wannabe fanboys/girls grabbing up all those garbage churned out by the toy manufacturers don't help paint a clearer picture of why Star Wars is so epic either...
