There are 2 lines of dialogue in Kill Bill Vol. 1 where the subs bizarrely drop into the lower letterbox bar. Fortunately, neither is an important piece of dialogue. I consider the disc CIH friendly.

Vol. 2 has no problems. All subtitles are in the movie image.

Thanks Josh. I would have to consider it CIH safe as well because I just watched both volumes on Saturday night and I didn't miss anything!!!! I am going to leave it in the CIH safe column for now unless someone complains.

I seem to recall that one of the lines was during the scene in Hattori Hanzo's sushi shop. It was just some bantering between Hanzo and his assistant, not anything critical.

Soon to be released BD (Director's cut w/ DTS-HD MA) should be the same (Universal = )

Not to get off track, but the upcoming BD is the Director's cut?? I will be getting that one. Just so that the thread is on topic, I watched League of Extraordinary Gentlemen on D-Theater today and it is CIH safe. I don't have it on any other format, so I can only speak to the DVHS.

Pineapple Express blu-ray has subs not in picture.

Thanks. That's disappointing. I have been wanting to see this one. Is the dialog crucial to the film or is it like Hancock, where you don't miss it at all?
post #41 of 354
Yup. Sony is the worst offender. Which is still surprising to me.

"Sunshine" in the picture
"Wall-e" in the picture
Both Blu-ray.

There are several lines spoken by the Asian characters that are relevant to the story, but you can probably figure out enough without the subs.

I just watched this last night and loved it. I'm thinking of getting a CIH set-up and was greatly disappointed when I noticed the subs under the picture.

It is disappointing but to say that we CIH users are in the minority would be a huge understatement. I will be renting this but I hate I cannot watch it at the 16' screen width of my setup. Even so, with my custom aspect ratio for these types of titles, I still get an image that's around 14' wide so it's not terrible but not preferred, either.

Dug out my HK import of Assembly and the English subs were in the picture.

And I believe one of the lines was just repeating the line above it.

Thanks Gekkou. Is that on BD or DVD?
post #48 of 354
That's for the Blu-ray. My bad.

Revolver BD has subs not in picture.

Yup. Sony. The biggest offender.

I've been watching tons of BD's last two weeks - but no subtitle issues to report (good or bad).

Same here. None of the movies I have been watching have subs at all. But I'm keeping an eye out!

Just watched THE MUMMY RETURNS. Lotsa subtitles - and thankfully ...IN the picture (Thank you Universal!). Mindless fodder of a film but very Impressive Picture quality and DTS-HD MA.

You can add 10 000 BC and Speedracer to the list of Sub-T's in the picture

Speedracer - DUH! I've only seen this three times. I don't know how I missed that one. Thanks
post #55 of 354
Greetings,

You can add Miracle at St. Anna to the list of Blu-ray titles that have the subtitles IN the picture area.


Cheers,

Thanks John and Ralph!

The subtitles in War are in the picture. I didn't try the actual separate subtitles, but the normal english subtitles during a few foreign language dialog scenes (as you would've seen in the movie theater) are in the picture.
