This "little" thing really annoys me. Why can't the studios give us the original burned in subtitles? As far as I'm concerned, these burned in subtitles that are shown during the theatrical run are a part of the original theatrical showing of the movie. And it isn't just one studio. I watched xXx last night and Columbia saw fit to use player generated subs instead of the original burned in ones. Back a month or so I watched Windtalkers and MGM thought it would be better to give us the player generated subs instead of what was shown during the theatrical release. Also, Fox used player generated subs for their Attack of the Clones release (I actually think they used the original burned in subs for TPM, why regress?). Anyway, this probably annoys me more than most as I am still stuck in the dark ages with my old standard 50" 4X3 RPTV which displays player generated subs in the lower black bar. I use mattes to cover the black bars which makes the image and the presentation in my house a lot better. Of course when the studio decides they should use player generated subs then this essentially makes my lower matte useless. Does this bother anyone else? Is there a way to force my DVD player (Panny RV-80) to show the generated subs within the image? To me the burned in subs are a part of the original theatrical presentation and we should be given them just like we should always get the OAR and the original sound mixes. Just my thoughts.
