Just got this title and I'm really pissed.

Another frackin' title that has the stupid subtitles that go outside, (below), the actual frame of the movie, (into the lower black bar).  I think you call them "player-generated".

These are when people are speaking languages other than english, like in France or Tibet.

They weren't like that when the movie was in the theater, so why do these frackin' studios seem so possessed to do this on DVD releases.  This is almost as bad as Modified Aspect Ratio.  You would have thought they'd have stopped doing this by now.
