I was about to say the exact same thing. I always have to turn the
volume way down to not blow the roof when some sudden sound effect is
played, but then I can't hear the voice. I even use subtitles for my
native tongue if the movie has a lot of sound effects. I'm having a
really hard time understanding the rationale behind this - is it to
deafen viewers? To show that it's far from reality so people don't get
confused mixing fiction with reality?
