I really enjoy foreign films and don't mind subtitles. However I am getting annoyed at the number of DVDs that make movies unwatchable when they try and guess how the movie will be viewed at home. Of course I am talking about the annoying practice of placing the subtitles UNDER the frame (in the black bar) instead of leaving them in the frame, as they were shown in the theater. Unfortunately when a sophisticated DVD player has a "zoom" mode, you end up seeing only half the subtitles, as the aspect ratio changes and more of the picture fills the screen. I just finished watching "Man on a Train" window boxed, using only the center of my 8 foot screen, just so I could read the subtitles when they were longer than a single line of text. I realize that they are probably trying to solve another problem: subtitles that are difficult to read because they blend into the picture. Can't they solve this problem by just choosing a better color for the subtitles? If the movie is watchable in the theater with subtitles, I want the same experience at home.
