I cannot STAND soft subtitles. But it’s your decision obviously on which you want to use. But consider this, TFA has burned-in subtitles not soft subtitles. So it IS something an official Bluray would do, is it not?
I think an official blu-ray may or may not have burnt in subtitles. But they wouldn’t have the gate weave, slight blurring, etc.
I like and prefer our burnt in subs, but I can see the reasoning either way. Still, for languages that don’t translate Greedo’s speech, a second set of subtitles at the top of the screen shouldn’t ‘ruin’ the film any more than the dub not matching characters lips does.
