    Why is the music in movies always so loud you can't hear the people talk?

    Even the background sounds are sometimes so loud they drown out the monologue.

    I AGREE! At movies and at home this is such an irritation. I have a good stereo system at home, but I often need to crank the volume up just to hear the conversation. And then what happens? Some background noise for such things as; gunshots, trucks, whatever almost blasts you out of the house. So, you turn the volume down, until the next (intimate???) piece of conversation is blown away again.
    Good luck figuring this out.

    A good question. I always used to find inconvenient with these loud noises. It is much disturbing and terrific also. But, now, I had to become accustomed to it as my own son plays music so loud with a stereo system in the house. But, still, I feel pity for those who can't bear such terrific noises.

    I agree with you as well. I know my hearing isn't quite what it used to be, but it's gotten to the point that I wish they would include captioning (as they do in foreign movies).

    This has been a big complaint for years, so why doesn't the film industry listen to its audience? At one time during regulation of broadcasting, there was a law against such as this, but now after deregulation, even TV shows can play loud music over the actors conversations. Is it because writers now write such lousy dialogue? I can't think of any other reason, but I agree with you other writers that it is a very annoying practice and should be stopped.
    I also find that today some of the actors use such soft voices or they mumble their lines -- and then loud music makes the show impossible to follow, especially for baby boomers whose hearing is fading with age.

      True. It is a serious issue that needs to be fixed by the regulators and law enforcers. They should listen to the problems faced by people and do something to present a nice atmosphere in the theaters and in the broadcasting channels.
