Subtitles in movies.

I've always watched movies with English subtitles, all the time. English is my 2nd language and subtitles helped me learn a lot, and even though I'm completely fluent in the language now I can't kick my subtitles habit.

Anyone else watch movies with subtitles?

  • We only speak English and still watch movies and TV with the English subtitles on lol. It's so hard to hear movies sometimes especially when they whipser and then the music comes on all loud, plus if the TV is on and our son is still awake it's never quiet enough to hear anything!

  • We have the subtitles on our tv all the time no matter what we watch. My husband prefers it that way. Sometimes with all the kids around its hard to catch everything that is said so it makes it easier.

  • I like scary foreign scary movies with subtitles. I think it makes them more scary.

  • Funny story: I stayed home at Christmas to finish a couple of crocheting projects while DH took the boys to MIL's early. I was elated to think that I could FINALLY watch a movie I had been dying to see that DH had no interest in. I sat down, settled in with my work and started the movie, COMPLETELY forgetting that Girl with the Dragon Tattoo wasn't in English! It just isn't possible to crochet and read a movie! The movie was fantastic and I got the scarfs finished the next morning.

  • Nope- but when my daughter was younger she would always have them on when she watched tv! She was obsessed with reading them

  • I like it on movies where they have accents or the volume jumps between high and low a lot because I can't be messing with the volume every 2 seconds.

  • My hubs likes watching movies with subtitles, I do not. I don't like having to 'read' the screen as I am trying to watch the movie... it gets distracting and gives me a headache.

  • YES! With 8 kids in the house it can sometimes get very loud, even when they are being "quite". If there weren't subtitles I would miss half the movie!
