Any spelling mistakes are probably mine. :D

Gevatter Tod - Mort (Tod is death in German ... Mort is Death in French ... )
Macbest - Wyrd Sisters (Wyrd Sisters is a parody of Macbeth)

Those two are the only ones I am going to guess at.

Der Erbe Des Zauberes - could be Equal Rites if Zauber means wizard :wink:

Not sure but Egyenjogú Rítusok looks like it could mean Equal Rites :wink:
