An Apology To The Film Industry

with one comment

Dear film industry,

For the last year or so I have been slagging off the sound mix of contemporary films. In particular, the tendency of dialogue to be lost under sound effects and incidental music. However, last night it came to my attention that the factory default for my television was surround sound rather than stereo and as such it was my telly that was sabotaging my viewing experience, not you.



PS Badly configured cinemas are exempt from this apology.

  1. Such as The Empire Leicester Square.

    I went to see the (admittedly terrible) American Haunting there a while back and you couldn’t hear the dialogue under the score and sound effects.

    What was particularly grating was the fact that they are the most expensive cinema in London and they boast about the quality of their sound system.
