i love watching foreign films with subtitles. my favorite is probably Cyborg Girl which is a japanese film. Unfortunately the first time I watched it it was completely in japanese with no subtitles but I got the jist of it.

I don't watch movies hardly ever. I barely watch TV. Probably been 3 years since I sat through an entire movie. I don't remember subtitles ever really bugging me, but I'd definitely prefer just understanding the language over sub titles.

I watch SO MUCH anime that it's a skill of mine to watch stuff with subtitles. I can read them fast enough to enjoy the scene or I can do both at one time. So people I know really really hate subtitles.

I am completely okay with subtitles. Sometimes I have trouble understanding accents, and my boyfriend's mom can't hear the best, so we're used to them.

GONE! GONE!
Nope, I love foreign films and I sometimes have a hard time understanding what characters are saying in films that are in English so I would prefer them on all the movies I watch actually.

I like subtitles. They're very helpful even when I'm watching in English. It does make me angry when they don't perfectly match what people say, though.

I am a big anime fan and I love the Japaneese language, so I always have it set to subttitles, good way to pick up some of the language too.

I don't mind but it does bug me when they put white writing over light colored images. Then I have a hard time reading it!

This - I don't mind them at all, unless I can't read them.

Sometimes my eyes can't take the strain of reading them. Otherwise I don't have a problem with them.

I don't mind subtitles. However, there are plenty of times where I'm paying a lot of attention to the subtitles and not really that much to the actual action of the movie, so I end up missing a lot. I definitely prefer movies without subtitles, I don't even mind dubbing because at least I feel like I can pay attention to the movie more without fretting about missing any subtitles.

Absolutely fine with it! In fact a large percentage of the movies/shows I watch are foreign, I often prefer them with subtitles over english adapted versions.

If the film is interesting then its OK. I have felt like I miss out on the scenery or expression of the actors sometimes because I was busy reading.

I don't like subtitles. Reading and trying to see what's going on in the movie is often too much of a strain on my eyes.

I enjoy it, actually. I like some foreign films. I also enjoy watching anime. I like a lot of British TV dramas, for which I have to use subtitles if they're available. (Hubby calls me "British impaired" lol.)

I've watched a number of films that had subtitles. The majority of them were excellent. I don't mind reading subtitles if it's a good movie. The problem that I have is that I like to do a few things at the same time. I can't just sit and watch TV. I need to be sewing, or typing, or doing something else at the same time. That makes it difficult to watch subtitled movies so I don't watch them often.

I don't mind subtitles too much but reading them does cause me to miss what's going on onscreen.

I prefer to watch movies without them but I've gotten used to it because one of my friends is partially deaf. If the film is in a different language then I don't mind

I actually really like subtitles, because I like to hear actors well... act. So much emotion can be communicated by the way an actor uses the language that I feel as if I'm missing out on their performance by listening to someone else say it in my native tongue.

I think of it like Shakespeare, who styled many jokes and insights based on the way the language sounds when spoken. When I direct plays, and a joke is no longer current, I have to think long and hard on how to find an update that still sounds, and I literally mean the sound, like the original.

I've seen a number of foreign films where the same technique is utilized, and even if it isn't understood, my ear can hear the musical quality of the phrase. One writer/director/actor in particular who uses a great deal of word play and alliteration for comedic effect is Stephen Chow (Kung Fu Hustle). If I listen to dubbing, I miss out on the humor, even if I don't understand what is being said.

Also, it's fun to read stuff on screen. Sometimes you get really funny translations.
