Thai movie เท่ง โหน่ง จีวรบิน was released in year 2011. It lasts 1h26mn. Sia Nong (Chusak Aiemsuk) welcomes a Thai monk (Pongsak Pongsuwan) coming to Tibet by plane. A TV program announced that ruffians’ leader Somchai Sakdikul has escaped from prison. Inside the plane, there are also Tukkie (ตุ๊กกี้ ชิงร้อย) as air hostess, Mum Jokmok as pilot, Amina (อมีนา พินิจ) as secretary. They board in the plane but it is hijacked by Somchai (สมชาย เข็มกลัด). He forces all the men to jump from the plane except the monk and the secretary. The robbers target a safe belonging to Sia Nong. The plane lands in the Golden Triangle but the robbers are unable to open the safe. Thanks to coded sentences, the monk succeeds to find the first code. As a comic interlude, Akom Preedakul comes to buy drugs and weapons. A second code is needed to open the safe but the secretary Amina asks for guarantee for her and the monk. By saving a child having fever, the monk gets reconnaissance from the villagers as they believed the kid was possessed (ผีเข้า). The monk gets mystic power recognition (บรามีหลวงพี่). He succeeds to change the villagers’ mentality but Somchai is still his enemy. Somchai rebels against Sadikul. Sadikul lets them flee by plane. Fighting happens in the plane and the monk has to use a lingam (ลิงค์) to prevent petrol leaking. As a monk cannot touch a woman, he is unable to reenter in the plane… The plane finally succeeds to land miraculously. Sadikul goes to jail for 5 years and humbly recognised that having sacred amulets cannot help when you misbehave. Right behavior is inside the heart. This comedy still delivers a few key Buddhist messages.

Following a deadly fight in Taipei, Suriyong wakes up in a Thai hospital but in somebody else’s body! He is now Asanee. He cannot remember he is married to a lady called Nakhun. He cannot speak Thai also. A Thai doctor speaking Chinese is assigned to his case. Doctors believe Asanee lost his memory (บ้าอะไร) as he cannot remember anything. Back home Nakhun doesn't believe Suriyong and tries to shoot him believing he is Asanee trying to hit her again. A mysterious secret prevails. Suriyong goes back to work as Asanee was a clerk. Some mysterious administrative letters are given to him. It seems ghosts (a woman smashed by a car, a little girl) want to give him messages. His office is inside an old administration building perfect for a scary setting. Suriyong understands he needs to stamp the letters that are in fact death certificates (ทำหน้าที่ตอบแทนเขา). Suriyong through stamping the certificates (คนปล่อยวิญญาณ) allows the spirits to have a rebirth. It seems his wife, Nakhun, has a mysterious secret towards him as Asanee’s best friend seems not so happy to see him back. Nakhun convinces Suriyong to go for a Buddhist exorcism. It takes place during the Tattoo festival at Wat Bang Phra. Monks prayers fail to liberate Suriyong. There is an impressive 360 degrees shooting inside the temple. Suriyong investigates on Asanee’s past. The doctor also conceals a secret. Suriyong understands he has the right of life or death on people (คนอยากตาย). By stamping the certificate, Suryong can become Yama, the hell guardian, and can shorten people life and sufferings. Same as Asanee before, Suriyong starts to take pleasure by killing people (สนุกฆ่าคน). Things turn badly. Asanee's body is posseded by Asanee's spirit again and Suriyong’s spirit is expelled. Only the doctor can see him. Asanee tries to kill Nakhun again. The only way to stop Asanee is to stamp his death certificate. Suriyong, thanks to the doctor help, can stop Asanee on time and recovers his body. Nakhun then shots Suriyong as she has a lover. Both Asanee and Suriyong are now really dead and Nakhun can enjoy the heritage with her lover.

The Buppha ghost saga continues with two new opus in 2009. In 2009, Buppha 3.1 and 3.2 were released. Lang, a teenager, can see ghosts since he is a child. He breaks up with his girlfriend as she is fed up with those ghost stories. Then he moves to a new place, the old factory building where Buppha used to live. In parallel, a little girl is always teased by her schoolmates. She fell in the stairs. When she wakes up, she is not the same. Buppha spirit is reincarnated in her body. She goes back to the building where she lived in Buppha 1 and 2. She then goes on rampage on the building residents by frightening them or killing them. Bupha either do her killings in the body of the little girl or inside the body of Buppha. In the building, there is an underground illegal casino. The comical psychic (หมอผี) Master Kong, who is now running for governor of Bangkok, tries again to chase Buppha spirit away but as usual fails. Lang meets Buppha and recognizes her as the teacher, who helped him a few years ago. He is fond of her. Nowadays Thai horror movies are either comedy comic oriented or scary oriented but Buppha is a unique mix of Thai comedy and gory horror. In such modern horror movie, ghosts are not afraid of Buddhist incantations (maybe related to numerous modern scandals in which monks were involved so they lost some respect from people and ghosts also) and especialy when those incantations are said with a hip hop trend!

There is identification between Buppha and the little girl. The underground casino den is still opened. More comic customers are coming. Police comes again with the support of monk Luang Phi Teng (หลวงพี่เท่ง). Luang Phi Teng is the main character from "The Holy man" movie, which was a top hit in 2005. Luang Phi Ten is giving blessing to the police (ให้กำลังใจ - รับพร). The monk is entering the building with them. The police wishes to capture the little girl ghost but she continues her killing rampage with the policemen. The monk and remaining policemen flee also.

Ramon is a young lady. She is an English teacher in a HiSo family living in a palatial house. The family includes crazy domestics, a stammering son called Johnnie incapable to study hard during private English lesson, a lazy daughter called Maew, a mother (คุณหญิง) playing in illegal casino (บ่อน). Bow, young man, is fianced with Maew. The HiSo family wears exuberant clothes and has a high pitch tone when speaking. They all have funny long Thai names. The grandfather is sick but still has enough strength to hide four bunnies in his room. Ramon, the leading actress (นางเอก), is a poor lady bothered by the various jealous ladies. Johnnie's brother Phet, wearing a beautiful immaculate white suit, comes back from foreign countries. Maew and her mother (นางอิจฉา) dislike Ramon. Bow, despite being Maew's fiance, has high interest into Ramon. He offers her flowers and gifts causing Maew's ire. Bow asks Chet to act as an intermediate (พ่อซื้อ) to seduce Ramon. The HiSo family needs to think about Phet's wedding. During a family trip to Hua Hin, the mother and Maew use ruffians (ตัวกง) to injure Ramon but to no avail. The family has a declining jewelry business. Ramon makes new designs and Phet wishes to operate new business changes. Mysteriously Ramon's successful designs are stolen. During typical TV series, surprising announcements always happen on the last episode. So during the official collection launch, it is discovered that Ramon is a undercover policewoman. The family lawyer is dishonest and has stolen the jewelry designs. A wedding between Ramon and Chet can happily take place. This movie needs to be seen tongue in cheek as it is a satire of Thai TV serie / soap opera called locally 'Lakorn' (ละคร). It includes the leading actress (นางเอก), who is always a kind and nice person. She never kisses her boyfriend neither held his hand. The bad girl (นางอิจฉา) tries everything to be the main actor's girlfriend and always tries to get rid off the leading actress. She is often a stereotypical character who does not hesitate to do bad things to the leading actress. The leading actor is called พระเอก. A group of funny comedians (ตัวตลก) supports the leading actor. The funny comedians are represented here as 'katoei' (กะเทย - man dressed like a woman), who always has a silly but funny role to play. The movie is based on famous Thai TV series such as 'Baan Sai thong' (บ้านทรายทอง). It includes sickly sentimental music (รักเธอหมดใจ).

In October 1976 a young woman Sai wishes to support the popular movement against the Thai military dictature. But her mother is against this choice. A young man called Kong helps to push her in her mother's car so that she can be safe. A few months later, a group of friends including Kong visits a country park in Northern Thailand. They are not aware that many students have fled the army repression to take refuge inside forests. They take a wrong bus. It is full of new CPT members (Communist Party of Thailand). They are taken as new recruits. Sai is part of the trainers team. This movie is based on historical facts. Many students used to urban life had difficulties adopting to the harsh realities of guerrilla struggle. Strong rules are put in place. They have to perform public work for the community. They want to escape as life is too harsh in the camp. Heavy jokes regarding food, camp doctor and the jungle life take place. They miss Bangkok booze. They volunteer to go inside the jungle to reach a village in order to get food as they ravaged the CPT rice fields by confusing rice plants and weeds. They meet government soldiers in the village so they have to flee. The team leader cowardly drops Sai but Kong helps her. They finally get captured. The military captain, who is Kong's father, releases them. Kong and Sai are then alone in the jungle. There is a mix of comedy and romance through beautiful natural landscapes (waterfalls, mountains in the mist, sunset on top of mountain). The CPT camp is finally attacked by Thai army and destroyed. All friends and Sai flee. Sai is shot in the back by her former team leader and dies in Kong's arms. This movie mixes some historical settings, comedy, romance and drama but the blending is not that successful. Regarding viewers willing to know more about this dark period of Thai history, The Moon Hunter (14 ตุลา) is a great movie to watch.

Thai movie "15 ค่ำ เดือน 11" was released in year 2002. This movie is about the Naga fireballs festival happening each year in Nong Khai and Phon Phisai. Every year more than 100 000 people gather by the Mekong River on November Full Moon. After sunset, mysterious fireballs called Naga fireballs rise up from the river and disappear into the sky. This movie looks into the various theories behind the phenomenon. Some locals still believe in the traditional myth of the Naga, making a sacred offering to Buddha. One doctor called Professor Surapon thinks that the fireballs are natural and installs complex equipment to make measurements. Another wants to prove the phenomenon is a hoax. The movie tells the story of an abbot of a Buddhist temple, who is depicted as responsible for making the fireballs. A boy, called Kan, who is helping the abbot, becomes reluctant to continue as he feels the media will eventually expose the practice and gives a bad image of Buddhism. The abbot (Noppadol Duangporn) wishes to continue as he feels it perpetuates the faith of the local people. The morality is "believe in what you do / do what you believe". Part of the movie is in Isaan / Lao language. Somchai Sakdikul fails to demonstrate the phenomenon is a hoax and that it is manmade. The abbot is looking for Kan's help. Kan was raised by the abbot but went to Bangkok to finish his studies. Kan knows young lady Lit since his childhood. There is some competition between Kan and the Professor Surapon towards Lit, who is now a teacher. As Kan has decided not to put the balls under the river this year, the abbot decides to do it by himself despite the strong water current and his old age. Will there be Naga fireballs this year? The viewpoint is that both supernatural and scientific beliefs can exist side by side. This movie has received an award at the Bangkok International film festival in 2003. This movie has also been registered as National Heritage per the 2015 list released by the Thai Film Archive.
