Clint Eastwood Westerns / Re:Question about the f-word(from Unforgiven)
« on: December 22, 2002, 11:14:47 AM »
Yeah, you're right, but as far as I understood the meaning of the f-word, it's ever translated too "harmless". Well, another example would be the translation of "Punk" from Dirty Harry in the documentary "Out of the shadows"... It's "Rotzlöffel". And well, "Rotzlöffel" is a word that a grandmother would say to her grandson when he hadn't behaved nice, but not a word that Harry himself would say...

It's often in into german translated films (I don't know if that's in other languages, too), that the words are expressed bad, or even wrong. You just have to look at some title-translations...

Well, I guess I "drifted" a bit away from the topic, but it had to be said  ;)

Well, I have a Tripod-Account and it works pretty good... ???

well, in the german version of Unforgiven, Clint says "Verdammt" all the times, what means "damned" in english... But that's in all german-versions of Hollywood films, the best scenes are cut out and the text is transalted very bad...  :-\

Well, I agree with you, Pink Cadillac is, in my opinion, not his worst movie... But it wouldn't appear in any top 10 or top 20 list, too ;)

As far as I know (Antipatros can correct me if I'm wrong) the "f-word" (or forms of it) doesn't get thrown around as a curse word in modern German the way it does in English. Germans are more likely to use the "s-word." As for the Swedes, Norwegians and Danes ... they eschew the words for sexual activity and the scatological words altogether when they really want to curse. Instead, they invoke various words meaning "Hell" and "Devil."  :o

Andere Länder—andere Sitten!  ;)

Well, your right... We use the F-word quite often, for example just for expressing that we don't like something...

What can you say in english for that, without using anyone of "these" words? Is there a "good" word to use?

The word has been around over five hundred years, and probably comes from German.  

Well, do you remember what the "original" german word was?

Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you?  :-*

Size matters not? Oh, yes, believe me. It matters!  ;)

But you're right...

Well, I think that Firefox is really one of his "worst" movies, but it is still not really bad...  ;)

And how can "Absolute Power" appear in this thread?  :o It's a great film...

Well, I just wondered what do you all think... Do you think a certain Eastwood-film is the worst? And if, why?Or are they all great? :D

btw, has anybody found a picture from the scene I described on my last post (that from Sudden Impact, where the light is behind him)? I searched for about an hour, but I couldn't find anyone...

I like two scenes out of DH the most:

The first from Dirty Harry I, where he's standing on the bridge looking at the bus arriving. 8)

The otherone is from Sudden Impact, where he's coming out of the light, you just can see his "shape"...
