The NeverEnding Story II: The Next Chapter picture

Masters of the Universe picture

Audio problem: The keyboard Kevin gets from the music shop seems to have an interesting trait, in that the high notes are on the left. This must either be bad "audio dubbing" or something to do with the shot perhaps being reversed, although I doubt this. It's most likely a post-production audio error as very very few keyboards or pianos are configured in this way.

Return to Oz picture

Audio problem: When Tik Tok lets the Wheeler go, as the Wheeler skates off he is laughing and saying "Behave." His mouth is clearly out of sync with the audio, however. (00:39:15)

The Abyss picture

Audio problem: When the crew are running around the passages, a guy with a beard yells something at Bud, and then uses a fire hydrant to put out a small fire. Funny, it doesn't make a noise.

The Scorpion King picture

Audio problem: When Mathayus and his friends are attacking Memnon's palace, there is a scene where Memnon's general rides at Balthazar on a horse, but then falls off. Balthazar holds a spear at his neck. The shot then changes so we can't see the general and he stabs him and he screams loudly. But if the spear went through his neck (as it should have, as it didn't move anywhere but down) he should not have been able to scream. (01:16:55)

Casanova picture

Audio problem: When we first see Francesca and her family in their house, in any wide shots showing Francesca's brother, Giovanni, his mouth is not moving in sync with what he is saying.

Wild Hogs picture

Audio problem: When Damien Blade shows up at the end, he shows up on a motorcycle close to the crowd, right on the main road, yet there's no sounds of a motorcycle pulling up before hand. They would definitely have noticed him pull up and hear his motorcycle coming in way before he stepped off the bike and the crowd parted way.

Jumper picture

Audio problem: In the scene when he goes back to his home and finds his dad on the floor, he walks into the house and you can see Family Guy playing on the tv and hear it very quietly. Unfortuanately, the audio is coming from a completely different scene in the episode than the video. (You can see Lois is in the zoo, which comes from the beginning of the episode, yet the conversation you can hear is when they are sat in the kitchen towards the end of the episode.)

The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle picture

Audio problem: At the end when Boris and Natasha are drinking from glasses, they throw their glasses up in victory and we hear the glasses shattering. But in the long shot, there's no sign of broken glass anywhere.

Spy Kids 2: Island of Lost Dreams picture

Audio problem: When Juni falls into the "volcano", Carmen attaches a harness to a branch and dives after him. She grabs him and then seconds later the harness snaps. It then cuts to a shot of Juni and Carmen plummeting down the volcano, and you hear Carmen yell "Juni!" yet her mouth is shut tight. (00:48:05)

Die Another Day picture

Audio problem: When - during the sword fight - the sabre is thrown to the wall, it makes a high frequency sound - like a knife or an arrow. The sound of a sabre would be much lower frequency.

Predator 2 picture

Audio problem: When the Predator is about to shoot Gary Busey, just before Danny Glover blows the door in, listen. The actor playing the Predator is counting to three before the explosion, preparing himself for the effect. Easily heard if you turn your tv up. (01:16:15)

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory picture

Audio problem: In the scene where Veruca's Dad is explaining how she got the ticket, when the shot is pulled back, there is an echo. But when the camera is zoomed in, the echo is gone, as well as when Mr. Salt is talking and the camera is showing a flashback. (00:18:05)

Madagascar picture

Audio problem: Near the beginning, when the two metal monkeys strike the Central Park Zoo bell, it makes two different tones. As it's the same bell they're hitting, and they hit it at the very same vertical axis, it should make the same tone both times.

Audio problem: When the Queen is speaking to the Troll King for a second time in the mirror, she wraps up discussion with him and in the next shot she walks over to her mirror and says, "Mirror, talk to me, why haven't you found Windell yet?" The Queen's mouth moves ahead of the actual voice.
