Subtitles

The last movie I saw at a theater was “Avatar.” I saw that movie in a theater after being coerced by friends to see a film in 3-D. I was shocked at the cost, having shied away from theaters for such a long time. I had a pass that would have reduced the cost, but “Avatar” was a special and, since it was in 3-D, the coupon couldn’t apply. Yes, cost is a factor, but the main reason I don’t go to the movies is that there are no subtitle options. At home, I turn on the subtitles with almost all movies, regardless of what the primary language is. I have found that I “hear” more when I can see the words. By the way, I hardly ever miss a “good” movie as I watch everything on DVD as I don’t mind waiting. I reserve the DVD’s at the public library and wait for my time in the queue to arrive. Presently on my list are: “Fury,” “Wild,” “Birdman,” “The Imitation Game,” “Selma,” and “Gone Girl.”Yeah, I know–you saw all of those movies a year ago.
