Clueless picture

Audio problem: When Cher and Tai are at the party and Travis comes up to them he has 2 cups of some kind of drink and all of a sudden you hear a sound that is supposed to be something spilling. I guess they assumed that it was supposed to be the beer spilling on Cher's shoes. Well as you can see nothing falls/spills from the cup, it is just sound effects.

Casino picture

Audio problem: After Pesci and De Niro's meeting in the desert, Pesci gets into his car and you distinctly hear the sound of tyres peeling out. Am I wrong or is this impossible on sand?

Suggested correction: The desert outside Las Vegas isn't pure sand, but rather a dry lake bed. It is certainly possible to squeal tires on this type of surface.

Outbreak picture

Audio problem: Between 1:12:26 and 1:12:37 into the film, as the chopper lands near the outer perimeter of the cordon for Cedar Creek, the audio has mixed into it civilian ATC conversations from a commercial airport, instead of military center. Specifically, ".cleared to land 24R.Delta 1781 cross runway 24L.". The chopper should not be on civilian freq at an airport far from his operating area or landing zone. You can compare the audio at 1:25:20 when the army loach leaves the flight line, ATC audio is presumed to be on the right freq and is ordered to RTB / land. (01:12:25)
