just to clarify, I have no problems with my hearing and I'm talking about English speaking shows. I can watch without subtitles, but I feel better when they're on for some reason
...and it makes me feel even more confused and frustrated that Nolan consciously chose to obfuscate the dialogue so much in the sound mixing, thereby ruining the experience for so much of the initial audience upon release. Seems like an entirely pointless and counterproductive choice for a movie so conceptually and narratively dense and yet so light on exposition scenes. It's not like Dunkirk where the lack of dialogue is a distinct stylistic trait for the film - quite a lot of Tenet is dialogue-driven, including some key scenes whose emotional and thematic context would basically disappear if you were forced to get by with only a "visual experience." I've given Nolan a pass for a lot of things he tends to get shit for - I've enjoyed his films since my childhood and I remain awestruck by the scale, craftsmanship and conceptual ingenuity of his work every time I rewatch his movies - but the shit he pulled with the original Tenet release was just pure pretentiousness.
That being said, I... keep reading on reddit ➡
A lot of anime streaming sites still don't support the studios that create the shows we love. So if anything from Studio Gonzo isn't on Crunchyroll, try their YouTube channel. Enjoy!
I’m so tired of having important plot points spoiled by Netflix’s subtitles! You would think that whomever is creating them would know better than to include certain information.
I don’t watch Naruto, but apparently there was a huge subtitle spoiler, in fact when you google “Netflix subtitle spoiler” the first page is just about that.
But it happened recently to me with The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the last episode, last scene ever, and it was spoiled!
Many of us, like myself, can't watch things without subtitles or we miss a lot. It always makes me smile seeing someone has captioned a video. It seems small, but it makes a big difference in many people's lives. Thank you!
Whether it’s TV or Film, and whether it’s in your domestic language or not, watching media with subtitles is the superior experience. Not only does it make things easier when hearing impaired or watching with unruly chatty company. The subtitles generally provide more information and context for what your watching. A few examples, background conversation or chatter is often included such as police radio information in heist movies, that great song that started playing during a climactic scene usually has the artist cited in the subtitles (sometimes for things that aren’t even included in the credits), another example can be by providing greater subtext if a joke is confusing or a character makes an odd choice. Small differences in dialogue and how we process it auditorily can change when we accompany it with the written word. Not to mention when dvds or blu rays have their audio mixed it is often incredibly unbalanced leading to crazy music and explosions and inaudible dialogue. Not on... keep reading on reddit ➡
I grew up in a small town in Louisiana but I live in Los Angeles now. I still got my Cajun accent and speak French. Occasionally here people tell me my accent is cool, interesting or I've heard others say I talk like I'm "uneducated and ignorant" or some other stupid shit. Never had anyone say my accent was hard to understand.
Well I got interviewed in some tv show where they were asking random people questions on the street. I later found it and I saw that they put subtitles on for everything I said. Only me, nobody else had subtitles. I was fucking pissed and I called them, they told me that my accent for some is "unintelligible" and difficult for many to understand. I told him that's fucking bullshit and and it's quite rude ridiculous and insulting for him to add subtitles when I speak. he hung up on me before I could finish. My wife says I was unnecessarily rude, but I don't care. The guy I talked to was part of the editing team, he decided to add the subtitles on to it. Fuck thos... keep reading on reddit ➡
To answer the obvious first: I have a lot of time on my hands. I've been a longterm university student for about 12 years, I have obsessive-compulsive disorder and watching my favourite show (among some other series) distracts me from sad thoughts and anxiety.
I think this could be fun and I know the show well enough to specifically reply to a lot of questions...I hope.
So please ask me anything! :-)
(I hope this isn't breaking any rules)
EDIT: I had no idea this would get a lot of feedback, I'm super glad, but I need just a little time for each question. Anyway keep it coming and be a little patient. Thank you all! :-)
EDIT 2: I feel bad for bolting but I've gotten super tired, it's after 3 in the morning for me. Thank you all for making this a lot of fun, maybe I can continue a little bit tomorrow, but I can't promise that right now.
I guess 2020 has been tough, but I am sure that with some patience we will see [brighter days aga... keep reading on reddit ➡
The translation of the 10 BABYMETAL YEARS CHRONICLE interview bluray is now complete! I would like to personally thank /u/gakushabaka, funnytoss, /u/SakuraGakuinIND, knockymetal, /u/KaigaiFukei and Lenzer for their hard work! Without them this wouldn't have been possible! I'm sure everyone in the community appreciates all the effort they put into this project!
You can download the subtitles here:
I would also like to thank Kapanak - he was instrumental in getting some of the translators on board!
I recently downloaded Rosetta from Nexus and I noticed that I really like hearing other languages in my game. So I wonder if there are more followers like her who have a foregin voice but English subs?
Thanks for any help in advance!
Half the time people in movies talk too quietly for the audience to hear anything and the other half has too much music in the background for me to make anything out. Subtitles make everything so much easier to understand. It also makes the experience more enjoyable for those who are hard of hearing so I really see no disadvantages to this. I didn’t even realize this was unpopular until I was watching a movie with some family and friends and the majority asked me to turn off subtitles. It’s not like they’re that hard to ignore for the people who don’t need them so I really don’t know why people refuse to put them on.
