Guys who are fussy about subtitles are the worst. It doesn't matter how critically-acclaimed the film is, they'll crinkle their nose at the suggestion once they find out that they have to read whilst viewing.
They get all aggravated like it will personally affect them in some crucial capacity. It's not like you have to pay more money to read 'em; subtitled movies are the same price as Paul Blart: Mall Cop. They'll even bristle at watching Y Tu Mamá También and that has a hot chick in it! What the hell?
I also can't stand when guys bust my chops about watching TV shows with the subtitles on. Call me crazy, but I like to know what is happening on-screen. As a head's up, if it's a British show, I'm gonna need 'em. That's a given.
And, mock me if you must, but subtitles were essential to my Wire viewing experience. Snoop has a crazy thick accent and I'll be honest, I couldn't always understand what Omar and Bubbles were talking about. Subtitles saved the day on that one.
Seriously subtitle haters, hit the road!
