Subtitles

This weekend, Husband and I watched our first subtitled movie together. I’m embarrassed to say that the movie was actually in English. It was the movie Inception, which Husband had been dying to see.
After about 15 minutes of us struggling to figure out what was going on (“Wait, what did he say?”), Husband paused the movie and change the settings to display English subtitles. Husband laughed and said that maybe he is becoming an old man. I must be becoming an old woman because I thought the subtitle idea was genius.
I’ve always said that I want to grow old with Husband. I just didn’t realize that the “older” part would be here sooner than we thought.
P.S. Even with the subtitles (although they helped quite a bit), I nearly gave up on trying to figure out what was going on. I’m not usually a big fan of science fiction anyway, but I will admit that the movie was interesting.

Wait a minute.....I watched it with no subtitles.....
I was lost.....maybe I needed the subtitles/ha
I began to wonder what was a dream and what was real....but I kept watching...I felt like it was 3D!
Can you imagine the mind of whoever wrote it????
I agree with you, interesting.

Did you not get the english version of the movie? It's really good but if I had to read it I wouldn't be able to follow.

We (obvi) use the subtitles all the time because I can't watch tv otherwise, but husband said he gets SO much more out of tv shows and movies with the captioning on it. I don't think it's a geriatric problem (LOL!), I think it's just that there's SO much going on in a single minute in a single program and it's too much for the mind to process!
