    I had already decided to buy the rambo set that streets on may 21. But it looks like they didnt include any english subtitles, which really annoys me, and maybe I wont buy it for that reason.

    I find it much more relaxing to watch the movie with the subtitles on, and I really cant understand why its so random whether some studioes like artisan inckludes the subtitles.

    MgM seems to have changed their way now, and are starting to include subtitles. If only artisan and anchorbay would follow.

    Artisan rarely have subtitles on their DVD releases. I presume, however, that their DVDs are closed captioned.

    Hey Michael, I can only agree with you.
    Since Close Caption decoder is standard in american televisions, I guess it really doesn't matter to US residents whether a DVD has Subs or CC's.
    Keep in mind that Anchor Bay and Artisan for the most part only have license to distribute the title in R1, and so they could actually care less about Europeans.
    Still annoying though... [​IMG]
    EDIT: rbirk, ok I C, so then it is really a problem, also in the states...

    It is in my opinion a huge mistake not having English subtitles. I need them. Then, many times they don't even have close captions. Even on DVDs released in the last couple of months. Also many display devices do not have close caption like, for example front projectors.

    Personally, I like captions and get very annoyed when they're missing, too.
