It just seems that more and more often I am hearing dialog that is continually recorded to hot with audible clipping ensuing. Has anyone else noticed this new trend on a variety of movies? Its insane! Once you begin to hear it, you can't help but not hear it. Lossless audio sometimes spoils the movie for me
Before someone says, my center is broken, I have verified all of this on my computer using HD555's, clipping is still there.
Movies that I have heard it in recently:Transformers 1
(dialog clipping at the end of the movie)Transformers 2Transformers 3
(several scenes, voices audibly crackle)Thor
(same as transformers 3, many offending scenes)Bugs Life
(When Hopper is in the ant hill yelling, screams "lets ride" and also when the two jumping bugs in the bar yell "your fired, your fired".Gladiator
(the extended edition master is terrible with audible clipping in not just dialog, but sword fighting and crowd cheering as well, the region 1 DVD never had any of this)Rambo 4
(Dialog clipping throughout many talking scenes)
These are just a handful of movies with many others as well.
Am I going crazy or is anyone else noticing this trend?
