Greetings and welcome to studythaisubs.com!
This website presents Thai audio and subtitles along with corresponding English translations from some great Thai (and soon Hollywood) movies! While my previous project broke up sentences to sharpen listening skills and study vocabulary, this website uses phrases and full sentences taken from movies to study the sentence structure used in narration and actual conversations.
Though most subtitles of each particular movie are included in the study pages, some have been left out. For a subtitle to be included there must be corresponding Thai audio. Lines in the movie where a language other than Thai is being spoken or where something like texting is taking place will not be included. Things like unclear audio and single word subtitles may be left out as well. Because of these and similar issues, you may find yourself missing out on parts of the stories when studying these subtitles. I've only included movies I've felt were worth watching, so by all means, watch each of these movies after you've studied the subtitles and enjoy them as they were meant to be viewed.
I've recently added the original subtitle files for both Thai and English in a .zip file towards the bottom of each movie page. I try to use the information from these files "as-is" on the study pages, but sometimes I find myself attempting to improve the Thai transcriptions or the English translations. If you run into errors you can always check these original subtitle files to see if the error is something I've done, or something that's always been there. Common transcription errors I usually don't bother changing involve particles such as สิ, ดิ and อ่ะ, นี้ read as เนี่ย etc. Translations are always decent but on occasion can be improved upon. I don't always change these when I encounter them, but sometimes I do. If you have questions on any changes I have made, feel free to ask.
This website was started in May of 2019 and movies will be added at the rate of around 1 or 2 per month. Next up will most likely be The Simpsons Movie, but first with the help of universe6, I'll work on moving this content over to the main website. So it might be a while before new movies will be added - but more will be coming!

Websites For Purchasing Thai and Thai Region Movies
These websites are provided for your convenience and I cannot guarantee results. If you're ordering from within Thailand, I believe eThaiCD will give you a discount from their listed prices, but ask first to check as I haven't purchased from them for several years. These days I buy my DVDs from the local Boomerang shop.
