The Wolf of Wall Street picture

Audio problem: Jordan and Donnie are talking about Jordan's money. Jordan then says "technically 72 thousand last month. Something like that." When he says "something like that", the camera is very close to Jordan's head with Donnie in the background. You hear the words "something like that", but Jordan's mouth is not moving, it is closed.

World War Z picture

Audio problem: While Gerry is talking to the C.I.A. Agent, a side view of the agent's face is seen as he says "That's the man in Jerusalem you want to see." The movements of his mouth and cheek does not appear to match up to what he is saying at all. (00:43:55)

Gravity picture

Audio problem: In several scenes, Sandra Bullock used radio equipment in efforts to call for assistance. There is a sound made by vintage, mechanically tuned radios called "heterodyning" that results in a squealing, variable frequency sound in the speaker. While heterodyning added a degree of drama to the scenes in "Gravity", contemporary radios operate on a different, highly stable technique for tuning, and do not produce heterodyne sounds. (00:13:15 - 00:41:00)

CBGB picture

Audio problem: When the Police play "Roxanne" for Hilly, the actors are just lip-syncing to the studio version; though his laugh has been edited out, the atonal piano chord at the beginning of the song, a now-famous gaffe from when Sting accidentally sat on a keyboard during recording, still remains.

The Haves and the Have Nots: The play picture

Audio problem: In the mansion during the second scene, Louis is among the group and his phone goes off vibrating. It is extremely obvious that the sound of the phone vibrating was actually someone humming in attempt to mimic the sound, and doing a poor job at it.
