If you have a link or just want to list a title, put it in this thread. I will be moving everything to this first page on a regular basis.

This list is only for ENGLISH language subs. (Star Wars-type alien translations, foreign films with English subs or English language films with English subs for certain scenes where another language is spoken.) This list WILL NOT cover SDH subs or subs in a foreign language for an English language release, although I think another thread is a great idea to cover those titles.

****DISCLAIMER****
Some STANDARD DVD titles on this list may only be CIH safe if using certain Dvd players. Some titles listed as safe may in fact not be "safe" with certain players and settings. This was brought up by a concerned member. Someone step in and PM me if you know otherwise, but I believe that BD titles are going to be the same regardless of player as this is an authoring issue and players are not capable of relocating subs.

[EDIT]Please note: Most Blu-ray Players will shift the Bit Map subtitle on DVD up by approx 10% giving the illusion that the STs are actually in the picture. This is why Star Wars has been moved to STs out of the picture.

All are BD's viewed on Sony 350:

SUBTITLES IN PICTURE:
New Rambo (2008)
Iron Man
The Hulk (2008)
U-571

SUBTITLES NOT IN PICTURE:
30 Days Of Night has subtitles (alien language) in the lower black bar. But sometimes subtitles are stacked - and half of the subtitle is readable in the picture area.

Thanks John. I am going to be cutting and pasting from everyone's threads. Let's get this bad boy going. I know I will take advantage of the information we can put together.

I don't keep a running list, but as I watch new discs I'll try to add to this thread.

Off the top of my head, here are some Blu-rays with subtitles not in the picture:

Curse of the Golden Flower
Flash Point (HK import)
House of Flying Daggers
Kung Fu Hustle
OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies (French import)
The Professionals
Youth Without Youth

Greetings,

Like Josh, I don't keep a running list but I try to mention it when the subtitles are not within the picture area.

Here are a few that I didn't see mentioned in the above listing:

La Femme Nikita - subtitles fall within both the picture and black bars
CJ7 - subtitles are in the black bars


As they come up I will try to remember to post back in this thread.


Cheers,

Universal generally keeps subtitles in the picture. I don't have the Blu-ray edition, but the HD DVD of Fearless was CIH friendly. Perhaps someone with the Blu-ray can confirm?

I really hope as the list grows, we will see far more films with CIH-friendly subtitles.

I have only watched the first 10 or 15 minutes, but yes it appears CIH ready.

It looks like we can also add Transformers to that list as well...

There is an earlier thread about this. Here's the link.

List of scope HD DVD/Blu-Ray fims with subtitles in black bars?

The earlier thread mentions some titles that are not mentioned in this new thread.

SUBTITLES NOT IN PICTURE:

Star Wars (original 1977 edition DVD) It's non-anamorphic, so I zoom it in to fill horizontally. Certainly not "up to spec" quality-wise, but it does the trick--and it's the only edition I'll watch. Greedo subtitles WAY out of frame due to original letterbox 4:3 aspect ratio!

Yeah, I don't guess we will ever see these unmolested versions with aspect ratios in the correct locations for CIH. I've thought about using a video editing program just to add subs in the picture area but I haven't gone beyond the thinking stage.

I read somewhere that the KILL BILL BD's sometimes had subtitles IN the black bar as well as IN the picture and sometimes half and half. Are we sure all the subtitles are IN the picture area w/ this title?

I'm going to play dumb here. I know that the DVDs were not CIH friendly. BUT on Saturday night I watched both volumes back to back on BD and if there are subs in the black bar, I did not miss anything. I know that Josh Z. said that the BD had subs in the picture. That's why I bought the BD to replace my DVD versions.

I really think KB is safe. I remember a couple of scenes that had two lines of subs and at no point did I feel like I was missing any subs. Maybe Josh Z can confirm this.

oops my fault, I saw it over a week ago and all I could remember was the words on the screen. Since I don't have masking I leave my lens in place and it fills my screen. Sorry about that, carry on..

I can better explain by saying that with my KeyDigital scaler I added the bars and then took them away to make myself feel better about using the lens. I dont depend on the directors anymore, I make my own Cinemascope
