Maybe at your level it's better to use Russian subtitles (assuming that's your native language). You can also download the Russian subs and use them for reference, on a tablet or even printed out.
Consider Ilya Frank's method too :)

Subtitles are often summaries rather than exact translations, and quite a few times I
notice errors in the translation, as though the translator misunderstood something on the
soundtrack.
Having said that, following subtitles on say, a film DVD can be a useful language study
method. Sometimes I sit with a notebook and record the subtitles that way as a means of
discovering new vocabulary or grammatical patterns.
