What's your opinion of subtitled movies and TV shows , anyway ?

  As I mentioned , a subbe'd movie was one of the movies I saw recently...Some people have absolute " No ! I EILL NOT watch subtitles ! " reactions to them , I obviously , don't , but I can see the some of the stated objections...There's often , I guess , a " purist " , ummm...populist?? split between those who perfer subtitles and those who would like dubbing...

I will sometimes use it when there's a character speaking English, but has a thick accent. It's a big help!

 

I've done that before.

Those are some good ones. About a year ago I watch M which is a 1931 film starring Peter Lorre. It's subtitled and still holds up today.

Look for any movie where the director is named Bergman, Fellini, Truffaut, Kurosawa, Renoir, Bunuel or Godard. They're almost all subtitled and a lot of them are in black & white. Don't let that scare you. Dive in!No
M is indeed an excellent picture.  Also, I recommend anything by Akira Kurosawa.
I've been known to do that as well.
