As I want all my movies to be as close to the theatrical prints as possible, it bugs me when subtitles or any other text that appears during a film is not shown on the DVD version, instead replacing it with electronic subs generated by the player itself. I've avoided any titles where I've heard they've done this too, but occasionally I won't know about them til I see them for myself especially since I don't see many recent movies in the theaters anymore. Last night I watched "Lords Of Dogtown" and there are three scenes where someone is speaking Spanish, and the player puts up yellow subtitles translating them into either English or French depending on which soundtrack you're listening to. These come up even if you have the subtitles on your player set to "Off", somehow they authored this disc so the English or French subs come on during these parts. This really took me out of the movie as it reminded me I was watching a DVD and not a film print. I understand Spanish enough that I could already understand what was being said in these scenes, so if they left out the English subs that were probably on the theatrical prints I would have preferred just to have no subtitles at all, but there's no way to do that the way the disc is authored. I've heard some reasons why companies do this but I simply don't agree- it constitutes an alteration from the theatrical version and makes the presentation less film-like, plus on a 4x3 screen it often appears in the black area under the picture which you aren't supposed to be looking at. (There's a subtitled scene in Goldmember that would have been completely ruined had they changed the subtitles in that! Thankfully that was left alone.) Anyways, I'd like to get together a list of all known titles that do this so those who dislike this practice can avoid them. These are the few titles I've witnessed this on first-hand: LORDS OF DOGTOWN- 3 scenes where Spanish is being spoken, come up as yellow subtitles and can't be turned off TOMORROW NEVER DIES (first Special Edition reissue)- A number of location identifiers and some dialogue translation in white lettering in the same font as regular DVD subtitles; can be turned completely off RETURN OF A MAN CALLED HORSE- White lettering translating some dialogue, Subtitle button on player is disabled DANCES WITH WOLVES (OOP Image release)- White lettering translating some dialogue, can be turned off WHALE RIDER- Yellow lettering translating some dialogue- do not know if this can be turned off These titles I have not seen personally but have heard they replace filmed subtitles with player-generated electronic ones: GO CHARLIE'S ANGELS BAD BOYS II ANNIE HALL BLACK HAWK DOWN KILL BILL VOL. 1 Any others, or am I the only one who cares about this?
