Well, I'm not a beginner but I still watch them with subtitles.
Sometimes the funny part is to laugh at the mistakes in translation.
Otherwise, a beginner is...
a beginner, so she/he needs a support to learn.
Subtitles mix the listening with understanding and offer a help during the learning process.
You can use movies to improve your foreign language.
But be free to decide when you are intermediate and give up reading the subtitles.
