    got both American Ninja (guilty pleasure) and Running Scared and was disappointed that neither had an English subtitle track - I thought MGM said all their upcoming releases would feature english subtitles
    btw: picture quality on both is very good

    I BELIEVE they said all of their releases from November 2001 on would include English subs. Not quite there yet.

    I have not checked all my new MGM movies yet, but I did notice that several of them now did indeed have English subtitles.
    Thank you MGM!!

    At least all of MGM's DVD's contain Captions if not exactly player generated subtitles.
