You've read The Backstroke of the West; now WATCH The Backstroke of the West! (MLYT, some NSFW language. The first minute or so of video is missing, but the rest of the movie is there in its full glory.)

Obi-Wan: I FEEL FAR FROM GOOD

Count Dooku: EVEN SINCE YOU I SEPARATE I HAS BEEN HATING YOU. YOU ARE A SACRIFICE ARTICLE THAT I CUT ABRUPT NOW

This isn't the Chinese version with laughably bad subtitles, which I had seen before, but a voice-acted dub of that translation! It is awesome, although I have to wonder how long it'll survive the wrath of Lucas' lawyers. A RiffTrax-like play-along track would probably have been CONCEPT BETTER THOUGHT OF.

This is an improvement over the original of dialogue and acting.

MetaFilter: The Disgusting Thing Came

JHarris: Well, looks like it's been safe since late 2010, so it's doing pretty okay for itself. There's a lot of Star Wars on YouTube -- this is a great example -- that's never been contested by Lucas, et al. So, far that at least we can appreciate him.

Lucas should hire these translators as script editors.
