    1.) i agree with your assessment of movie flaws. Although i noticed this more with hollywoody movies and things from the 80′s where the music even if it’s not loud it’s non-stop. I like how a lot of recent films don’t clutter it up with music.

    2.) All this time you talk about Breakin Bad, i thought you were watching that breakdance movie.

    3.) Yesterday i was counting change out of a cup so i can take it to the coinstar & it made me think of tracking sales of Spotify etc. . . . and then that made me realize that the internet based musician is basically a busker going home with a handful of coins and a few bills.

  2. Yeah, the non-stop music or the loud music, hard to say which is worse. But when the drums are unintentionally louder than the nuclear explosion, that’s not too good. I know that when I tried screening my cartoons without sound they didn’t work properly because people don’t notice they start without a sound cue & I do dislike it when credits are ran on silent at the end of the movie because it seems to give them a false sense of importance. But the really loud music seems like such an easy & obvious fix. For a while I thought it was because of me watching movies on inferior devices, but I think it’s just from lazy people in the sound department ripping audio straight off an ultra-hot CD without adjusting it.

    You should check out Breaking Bad. It really only functions I think if you start from the beginning as it’s kind of about likable characters becoming total assholes.

      i don’t think it’s from the incompetence you speak of. I think it’s more to do with “IN YOUR FACE” production values that’s really popular since the 2000′s started.
