    This just tickled me.
    I was reading the Wikipedia article on Die Hard the other day.
    Apparently, 'Die Hard' does not translate well.
    So they provided a selection of english translations of the foreign names for the film (if you see what I mean).
    I really like some of these:

    Thailand – ‘Big Building Fight’
    Spain – ‘The Glass Jungle’
    Latin America – ‘Hard To Kill’
    Russia – ‘Hard Nutlet’ (A hard nut to crack)
    Poland – ‘The Glass Trap’
    Portugal – ‘Assault To The Skyscraper’
    Greece – ‘Too Tough To Die’
    Norway – ‘Operation Skyscraper’
    France/Italy – ‘The Crystal Trap’
    Yugoslavia – ‘Die Like A Man’
    Finland – ‘Only Over My Dead Body’
    Germany – ‘Die Slowly’
    Hungarian – ‘Give Your Life Expensive’
    Estonia – ‘Sturdy Soul’
    Israel – ‘Dying To Live’
    Czech Rep – ‘Lethal Trap’
    Taiwan – ‘Ultimate Detective’
    China – ‘Tiger’s Bravery And Dragon’s Might’

    C'mon. Does the Chinese translation *really* say that? Sounds like a few popular movies from China.

    You might be thinking of 'Dragon's bravery and tiger's might'.

    Easy mistake to make.

    :rolleyes:
