Many times I find myself annoyed by the loudness of the music during key scenes with whispered dialogues or action scenes, where the sound effects already push a lot of pressure and the music just becomes more noise than anything else.
The Star Wars flicks, The Dark Knight, Watchmen have the most painful soundtracks ever because of their too loud or unnecessary scores.
With the advent of Blu-Rays I thought the studios would give me the possibility to cut off the music from a track, like I can do with videogames (thank goodness!).
But no. I have to stick with all those yelling opera instruments or stupid MTV songs at 80-f**king-dB!
You would be amazed at how much more detailed we could hear the sound effects if the music could be muted!
