Resolved Question: Why is sound editing so
We have noticed in the past year that the sound editing in movies is atrocious. For instance, we just tried to watch The Kids Are Alright, and could not understand a word in the opening scene cause they were eating! Same for Anne Hathaway in Rachel Getting Married. I can name several others. Also we saw True Grit last week, and the sound was awesome. That is when we noticed how these other movies sucked. What is the deal with sound editing?
