Default Watching movies with subtitles

I had no idea until recently, but apparently there are people who don't watch movies if they have subtitles.

A few times in my life I had opportunity to see foreign channels (such as German). That was disaster. All those American guys speaking German.

I suppose in English speaking countries, you don't use subtitles for English movies.

Now, 80% of the movies or more, I watched with subtitles. And they don't bother me even a little.

I have no problem watching English movie even without subtitles. But if possible, I'll watch it with English subtitles. If there are no English subtitles, I'd use subtitles of some other language that I understand.

What I wonder is, is it not funny to avoid movie just because it has subtitles?

Also, those who live in the countries where movies are synchronized (dubbed), do you find these movies watchable?

In movie theaters that's true. However, I always watch movies with subtitles if I have the option, even in my native language, because I have terrible hearing. Subtitles are incredibly helpful in that regard.

Subtitles can be distracting,but having them makes it easier to understand what theyre saying.

I always watch with subtitle's they especially help when someone has a accent.
But, overall i like them because some people do not know how to shut up.

Sub-titled shows are like reading a moving book. Some of the time I prefer it that way.

Default Re: Watching movies with subtitles

Because my hatred of all dub (well most dub) i usually always watch with subtitles its a good way to learn some foreign language. I have watched some dubs they are watch-a-ble but the problems come when the shows make a cultural references/jokes which results in weird translations which dont makes any sense in both languages.

Default Re: Watching movies with subtitles

I love subtitles but if they are in a different language I don't understand then I don't like them so much. I'll much rather prefer movies which you can enable/disable subtitles for that very reason. Subtitles are sometimes useful when a TV is on mute, but if you've been viewing subtitles long enough, esp. through live TV, you'll find out that some of what is subtitled is either wrong, or painfully lagging behind which adds to the frustration when TV shows go to commercial... they just stop the subtitling dead in it's tracks even if it's a full minute behind what the guy on the TV said before the commercial started.

Dubbing usually degrades the movie by having poor voice actors, unless it's a major cinematic release in a common language (and sometimes even then). The irony is that anime (or any animation) is primed very well for dubbing, but they usually don't bother getting good voice actors, so it often ruins it. I don't have a problem with subs, but often I will still use a dubbed version if it's available. I even get dual audio, where I will watch it once through with the dub and once with the subs, depending on mood.
