Top Gun picture

Audio problem: Reference the dialogue in the hangar where Mav/Goose and Charlie are discussing what was happening when they met the MiG, and Goose says "You know, the finger." In the original 1985 cinema release, Charlie replies "Yes, I know the finger, Lieutenant," but in the video release this has been changed to "Yes, I know the finger, Goose." If you look closely you'll see that her lips don't move when she enunciates the word "Goose," and if you listen carefully you can hear the edit change in the soundtrack between "finger," and "Goose."

The Delta Force picture

Audio problem: During the scene where Abdul is having Ingrid read the names of the Jews to be called up to first class cabin, Moustafa is arguing with the two nuns about another passenger who claims he is not Jewish. The nuns are telling Moustafa that "this man is telling the truth" and you can hear Moustafa yelling back, "Sit down, we know what we are doing" at least twice, but on both occasions it is very clear his lips don't match what he is saying.

Highlander picture

Audio problem: The sounds of the weapons being used in the movie are evidently inserted in most cases. Like 1) When MacLeod fights Fasil in the Madison Square Garden garage, he uses an iron bar to ward off the sword blows - the twin sounds in both impacts are exactly the same, but in the second instance, the bar is hit only once. 2) When MacLeod and Brenda are ambushed by Kurgan, MacLeod swings a cable or chain at Kurgan. The sounds are exactly like those of the swinging swords.
