Best biography movie audio problems of all time
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. (00:23:00)
Audio problem: During the wild boar hunt, they are interrupted by Aleander who says, "Prince Frederick of Saxony. He refuses to surrender Luther to you, Your Holiness," but nothing matches his lip movements. He utters a couple of syllables, at most, out of sync with the two full sentences heard in the movie. (English DVD version). (01:03:15)Macalou
Audio problem: In the scene where Erin is climbing down into the well at the plant, and then climbs out and runs away from the workers, she runs to her car, gets in and starts it. The sound of her starting the car is that of her cranking it over once, then trying again. The second time she cranks it over, her hand isn't on the key, its going down to the shifter.
Audio problem: In the scene where Matthew Broderick is addressing the potential members of the 54th on horseback (right after he accepts the position), the army band is playing, but the visuals don't match the music. While we hear drumrolls, we only see single hits on the snare drums by the actors. And at least one drummer is playing in mid-air.
Audio problem: In the scene where Malcolm is playing Russian Roulette, watch closely around the part when Malcolm begins to stand over the other guy with the gun pointed at his nose. You can hear Malcolm talking, but his lips aren't moving.
Audio problem: At the very end of the movie when Tony Blair and Her Majesty are walking in the garden with the dogs, the audio of Blair's voice does not match his mouth. At some points his mouth is not even moving at all, yet we still hear the audio.
Audio problem: When the child is being tested for what objects he picks up, he handles one of the bells by holding the clapper, yet still the bell chimes.
Audio problem: When the head of the Nazi forced labor camp is on his balcony shooting workers that aren't working, he fires two shots, kills two workers then reloads for a third shot but doesn't shoot. When he goes back inside, he ejects the live round he chambered onto his girlfriend, but when the round hits the floor, it clanks like an empty shell.
Audio problem: In the very final scene where the Scottish pipe band is playing the tune "Amazing Grace", it is apparent that the music is overdubbed and professional musicians were not used for the visuals. When the pipers are slow-marching, the marching is shoddy with different people stepping at different times ("experts" would be very precise). As the camera pulls back past the drummers, it is clear that some of them are beating their drums at a very different time to the sound track.
Audio problem: In the scene in the beginning when the dance is going on, it shows John playing the trumpet. When he starts on his solo, there is s shot where it zooms in on the bell of the trumpet. During this shot you hear a single note being played and not changing. But if you look, you can see John moving his fingers on the valves.
Audio problem: When the Scots are applying a battering ram to the city gates, you can plainly hear someone shout "Stop, drop and roll", after the English set fire to the battering ram. (01:29:35)
Audio problem: The original audio track for the saloon scene towards the end was accidentally lost during filming. Because the film was largely ad-libbed, not all of the lines could be recalled when the scene was dubbed in post production. As a result, lip movement is matched rather poorly to the audio.DavidK93
Audio problem: When Millie comes to see the grieving Beatrix, she presses her face to the door and pleads with her to come out. If you watch the mouth movements of her shadow, they do not match what you hear her say.
Audio problem: Upon Elizabeth's first meeting with the Duke of Anjou, he whispers, in French, what he would like to do to her in bed. Then he says, in English, "Would you like that?" His lips don't move when he says it.
