    If it’s a modern film, the dialogue is inconsequential anyway —
    the important part is the SFX…. And the SEX.

    And it seems some movie makers think the people are coming to see the action and the ‘blowey-uppy" stuff, and not the acting…
    It’s also funny that, at times, the subtitles don’t at all match what was actually said, or are full of typos and other mistakes.

    And it’s ironic that the mirophone that they use for dialogue in movies is known as a boom mic…..

    Some movies are like that. I think that when they mixed the sound tracks with Foley and music someone goofed on volume. Sometimes the music over rides the dialog.

    AMEN !! The best movies are driven mostly by theater – the way the different characters see the truth. Both the harsh realities and the humor come from this. SO YOU NEED TO HEAR WHAT THEY’RE SAYING !! However some audiences get their rush mostly from good looking actors, gunfire & explosions, sight gags and one liners. And I guess the cool guys all mumble these days – so that only the cool young guys can hear them…

    Not to mention that sometimes the subtitles obstruct the picture.

    Back when I watched it, CSI Miami would run the music louder than the dialog. One ended up turning down the noise and then turning on the captions.

    It’s like the sound mixing was done by someone who’d never done it before.

    One thing I really dislike about the programs of the last ten years is the going from triple piano to quadruple forte and back again in less than a second. It’s hard to keep up with the volume control.

    aw man, totally relate. Wanted to watch LoTR online and only one video that didn’t buff on me, but the volume differences between scene to scene were ridiculous. One scene you can hear the dialogue perfectly, next it’d be so ridiculously quiet you can’t hear it even with sound jacked up (and they’re not even whispering!), and next thing you know, your ears are bleeding by the sudden sound blast.

    Later found full movie on YouTube, but it was broken into a ton of small sections. On the other hand, the volume was balanced for everything. Guess I can’t win :P

    Movies are mixed in a studio to be heard in settings similar to a cinema, which is not the same as material produced specifically for television.

    DVD players often have the option to reduce how big the volume jumps in movies are. This option would be under the player’s on-screen menu, in a sound section. It might be called DRC for Dynamic Range Compression.

    So true! Frank and Nancy have enunciated one of my peeves: I am constantly turning up the volume for dialogue or down for “dramatic scoring” and what IamJayBluE calls the “blowey-uppy” stuff when I watch movies on my computer (which is pretty much the only way I do cinema nowadays).
