Do you prefer to watch a movie with subtitles like me?

Post by Claraviolet on Mon Aug 15, 2016 8:05 am

English is my third language and around where I live my pronunciation is quite normal. Still, some movies are kinda hard for me to follow because of the pronunciation. American accent is especially hard for me to follow. So, I prefer watching movies with subtitles to get a complete idea about the movie and plot. Well, I prefer subtitles now as most of the anime that I watch on a regular basis are in Japanese.

Anyway, what about you guys? Do you prefer to watch a movie with subtitles like me?

I cannot stand subtitles. They are distracting! If you are reading a subtitle you can't fully pay attention to what's happening on the screen! If a movie has more than 25-50% of it's run time spent with subtitles I'm probably not interested.

I have mixed feelings on subtitles! Sometimes, they're okay, but sometimes they can be annoying as well. It depends if I can understand what the people are saying on the movie. If I had a choice, I'd say without subtitles for sure.

Generally speaking, I don't watch television shows or movies with subtitles or closed captioned. Though if I am having a hard time concentrating on what I am watching, or if I just need to turn down the TV, the subtitles work to help me focus better.
