[quote=“Col. Douglas Mortimer, post:5, topic:885”]I think awkward grammar is a staple of SW english titles.
I’m still trying to figure out “Django Kill, if you live Shoot!”
Its like the italians ran a translation through altavista!
And I never understood “Django the bastard” either. Why did they call him a bastard? WHY!? LOL[/quote]
Yeah, you’re right, it does seem to be a staple of SW titles. One of their charms, actually. But like you said earlier, a better translation of La Resa Dei Conti would have beeen preferable to “The Big Gundown”.
If you have to make up an English title, at least use words really used in English!
I don’t know how many other titles have this usage but at least twice somebody thought it was a good idea.
