watch out. Usually subtitles don't match exactly what the actors say, they might be quite different or leave out important parts (important for learning). If you want my opinion, I find movies somewhat difficult to understand, generally speaking, and not very useful (they often talk too quietly and too little, fast, etc.). I think sitcoms might be easier. Lots of dialogs, lots of different situations, etc. And try to understand without subtitles, if you can.
So go to Youtube and watch some clips or trailers, than chose the movie or sitcom you think you might understand better.
Watch any English movies with English subtitles. Nothing benefits me more than these movies. Most importantly, they keep you updated with what native speakers really say in the real world. At first it may seem difficult, but after a while, it'll be a piece of cake. Good Luck
