Thelma and Louise (1991) (Widescreen) (Retail / Rental)10 Mar 2011 16:48:46 Tigerfish:
"English and English for the hard of hearing subtitles for the main feature. Extras (including commentaries) have no subtitles."
Watership Down (1978) (Pulled)10 Mar 2011 16:45:32 Tigerfish:
"Regions 2 and 4. No subtitles in any language; no bonus features."
A Prophet (2009) (Rental)10 Mar 2011 16:41:23 ms.glug:
"The main feature of this film (which I rented and have now sent back thus no barcode info) purports to be subtitled. However, we attempted to watch this film but had to give up and send it back because only about one twentieth of the dialogues were actually subtitled. There was only the occasional sentence which appeared on the screen in random fashion making the film impossible to follow. Now I am a translator myself and speak French so I could have watched the film on my own. However, having to provide a running commentary throughout for my husband was not my idea of fun and without, well, he didn't feel like just watching pictures! My hire company had a review from one other person who had the same complaint and quite a number who found the film boring (and no wonder). I wonder whether we received faulty copies or whether this film was assigned to the laziest subtitler in history? I am an avid watcher of films in all sorts of languages - some of which I understand and some not - and I have never come across this problem before."

The Professor (1986) (Deleted)9 Mar 2011 12:50:32 mettemichelle:
"This dvd has no subtitles - though many sellers claim it has english subtitles. Instead it is dubbed into english - and rather poorly at that! "
La Lectrice (1988) (Deleted)8 Mar 2011 20:59:55 limogne:
"The main feature which is in French has English Subtitles. The extras are text-based and in English."

Madagascar (2005) (Retail Only)8 Mar 2011 18:17:08 Tigerfish:
"Region 2, one disc. English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing. Main feature, filmmakers' commentary, special features (including previews) are all subtitled. 'Coming soon to theaters' trailer at the start is not subtitled. Music video is not subtitled, and nor are the kids' games, though those can be played by following the steps."
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988) (Widescreen) (Retail / Rental)8 Mar 2011 18:11:02 Tigerfish:
"English subtitles for the hard of hearing for the main feature. Original theatrical trailer not subtitled in English (didn't check other languages). According to the DVD menu, the main feature is also subtitled in German for the hard of hearing, French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian and Danish."
Paris, Je T'aime (2006) (Retail Only)8 Mar 2011 06:39:36 limogne:
"Although much of the feature is in French for which there are English subtitles, there are several segments in English and other segments where there is occasional dialogue in English, none of which have English HOH subtitles. The 'making of' feature has no subtitles."
Steel Magnolias (1989) (Widescreen) (Retail Only)7 Mar 2011 16:47:45 Tigerfish:
"English subtitles for main feature. No English subtitles for special features, listed in the DVD menu (though I didn't check each one) as subtitled in German, French, Dutch, Spanish and Italian. Subtitles for the main feature are listed in the DVD menu as: English, German, French, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Arabic, Czech and Danish. (I only checked the English). Commentary seems only to be subtitled in French, German, Italian, Spanish and Dutch. Hence my 'main feature only' rating."
Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004) (Widescreen) (Retail Only)7 Mar 2011 16:36:41 Tigerfish:
"To confirm the previous rating: there are English subtitles for deaf and hard of hearing for the main feature as well as bonus features, including deleted scenes and commentary. Trailers are also subtitled."

"Region 2, one disc. Main feature subtitled in English and English for the Hard of Hearing. Trailers not subtitled. No other extras on disc. Additional subtitles for the main feature (according to the DVD menu) are: German for the Hard of Hearing, Dutch, French, Italian, Swedish, Finnish, Norwegian, Danish, Spanish and Portuguese."
Waterworld (1995) (Retail Only)7 Mar 2011 16:14:36 Tigerfish:
"Main feature subtitled in English for deaf and hard of hearing. Bonus features are written notes (in English), and don't require subtitles as such, though the trailer is not subtitled. Main feature apparently also subtitled in Portuguese, Danish, Finnish, Polish, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Czech and French. (I quickly checked that the French subtitles appeared on the main feature, as they were not mentioned on the back of the DVD)."
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005) (Widescreen) (Retail Only)7 Mar 2011 11:58:56 Tigerfish:
"The copy I have here is a 2-disc edition, though the cover design and identifying numbers are the same. There's a sticker on the front saying 'UK Exclusive 2 Disc Special Edition'. Main feature subtitled in English (and English for the Hard of Hearing). Trailers and bonus features are not subtitled in any language, apart from 'Sing Along', which has lyrics subtitled in English. That feature is of little importance, hence my 'main feature only' rating."
The Peacemaker (1997) (Deleted)7 Mar 2011 11:48:33 Tigerfish:
"Main feature subtitled in English for the Hard of Hearing; additionally subtitled in German, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish and Finnish. No subtitles in English or any other language for the bonus features."
Crusade: The Complete Series (1999) (Deleted)7 Mar 2011 11:37:53 Tigerfish:
"I re-rated this set of five discs as it turned out that it does have subtitles after all... they are to be found in what I would term a hidden menu! The main feature on every disc has subtitles in English and English for the Hard of Hearing. Commentaries appear not to have subtitles in any language. The final disc includes two special features subtitled in English and other languages (apart from Arabic). As well as English, there are subtitles for the main feature in other languages: French, Dutch and Arabic."
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009) (Retail Only) subtitled trailer available6 Mar 2011 07:06:41 limogne:

The Red Shoes: Special Edition (1948) (Restored) (Retail / Rental)4 Mar 2011 06:52:08 limogne:

The Dish (2000) (Retail / Rental)2 Mar 2011 15:43:07 limogne:
"The main feature has English HOH subtitles, but there are no subtitles for the commentary tracks, nor any subtitles for the numerous features (although some of the features are text based)."
The Hunt for Red October (1990) (Special Edition) (Retail / Rental)2 Mar 2011 09:20:55 limogne:
"The main feature has both English and English HOH subtitles. The Director's commentary has English subtitles, as does the feature "Beneath the Surface". The trailer is not subtitled. The subtitles are not available from the remote, only through the set-up menus."
Happy Feet (2006) (Retail Only)1 Mar 2011 17:07:51 mat:
"As the music video is not subtitled, then the title should be rated "partly subtitled"."
Shrek 2 (2004) (Retail / Rental)1 Mar 2011 17:01:36 mat:
"The music video is a feature which should be subtitled. Partly subtitled for this one."
Female Agents (2008) (Special Edition) (Retail / Rental)1 Mar 2011 16:53:58 mat:
"This is a matter of personal opinion. It may well be that the DVD is still watchable for some people. However it is clear that this DVD was not subtitled with accessibility in mind and some people will never know for certain if they have missed anything important as a result of the missing subtitles. Therefore in this context it deserves the NOT SUBTITLED rating."
Ice Age/Ice Age 2 - The Meltdown (2006) (Box Set) (Deleted)1 Mar 2011 14:49:56 Tigerfish:
"Actually a very well subtitled 'partly subtitled', but one of the few special features not subtitled is 'Sid on Sid'. Main feature, commentaries and most extras subtitled in English for the hard of hearing."
I Am Legend (2007) (Retail Only)1 Mar 2011 14:45:26 Tigerfish:
"Subtitled in English, English for the Hard of Hearing, Dutch, Arabic, Hebrew, Icelandic. Main and extra features are subtitled."
