Kill Subtitles, Vol 1

While I totally dug Kill Bill: Vol 1 I was disappointed that the subtitles, which make up a good 15% of the dialog, were not visible in the widescreen version on my 16x9 set. They were positioned just below the bottom of the screen. My set is ISF calibrated and I'm sure any overscan would have been properly corrected, within acceptible tolerance. I'm very disapointed that I couldn't read them.

I have Vol 2 coming in the next few days and I phear that it will have the same problem. Maybe I'll just have to turn off widescreen and watch it 4x3. :-(
