Reading the subtitles (字幕) is fine -- as long as you're reading the English subtitles! As an occasional alternative to your other study methods, watching movies, with or without the English subtitles, can improve the "flow" of your English.

But you must also beware: listening to the English, while reading the Chinese subtitles will not help at all. Most  "daoban" DVDs in China have really terrible translations, and so the "match" between what's being said in English and what's written in Chinese is often very, very poor.

personal opinion, remove the chinese subtitles while you're listening the english. listen more times as you can , then you will get little improve of your listening ability. keep it for long, you will get a lot progresses. that's the way while i am watching a pirate DVDs or something which i downloaded from internet.

From my point of view, watching American movies is one of the good ways to learn English, especially for your listening and oral ability improvement. But, do remeber: Never see the Chinese subtitle while you are listening what the players are saying. You can find some movies with English subtitle in the internet or buy the DVDs.

Once you get some good phras or sentense or slang, write them down, keep it for a period of time, you must have some improvement.

No matter which film you choose, the critical point you should remember that you should exactly interested in and enjoy it. That means do not just watch it once.Thus won't bring you any kind of progress and you won't fully understand and memorize all the word they've said in the film.So you should enjoy it and you have this desire to re-watch it several times.I think some drama may really helpfulto you, such as "Friends" and "the despearte housewives".
And if you really want to choose this way to improve your English, then don't hesitate to buy the real version which contains English subtitles. It really hard for you to get free version on line with English subtitles.
May what I've said above really bring you benefits.
