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: As Gru attempts the dance floor key, some of the guacamole from his nacho hat falls out of the hat and lands on one of the keys which then triggers one of the sound effects. An axe then chops off the rear end of his nacho hat and lands on the part of the dance floor behind him, but no sound effect is made from the floor. (01:04:05)Casual Person
Audio problem: In the scene where the polite leader is addressing the Sandins for the first time he takes his mask off and starts talking to the camera but he is muted until James unmutes him. If you watch the polite leader while he is muted he mouths the words "Mr. And Mrs. Sandin" before he is unmuted. However when he is unmuted we hear him finish that statement by saying "Mrs. Sandin" again. (00:33:25)oddy knocky
Audio problem: In the scene in the banquet hall, where the bad-guy is eating a carrot, he throws it on the floor. Subsequently, while chewing on the little bits he has left in his mouth, there comes a sound which is not a chewing-small-pieces-of-carrot sound, but a biting-a-piece-off-a-carrot sound. That sound was way too loud to have been produced by some little piece he had left in his mouth. (00:47:45)Jacob La Cour
Audio problem: In several scenes, Sandra Bullock used radio equipment in efforts to call for assistance. There is a sound made by vintage, mechanically tuned radios called "heterodyning" that results in a squealing, variable frequency sound in the speaker. While heterodyning added a degree of drama to the scenes in "Gravity", contemporary radios operate on a different, highly stable technique for tuning, and do not produce heterodyne sounds. (00:13:15 - 00:41:00)
Audio problem: The scene after Victoria drops the plant from Tech 49 and lets it fall onto the Earth, shows the two of them having supper. The first line said in this scene is Victoria saying "Every day you have to go down there... And see what was lost." Victoria's lips don't move an inch when she says "and see what was lost." (00:24:10)Casual Person
Audio problem: In the scene after the jewelry heist when they go back to the house, Melander is questioning Leslie as to her connection to Parker. In one shot, you can hear the sound of him grabbing her and her making a high pitched whimper, yet he is not touching her and her lips are not moving. Also, Melander says "Check the house, every inch" and "C'mon, don't you want to hit me now" at the same time.dishmanchicago
Audio problem: When the Police play "Roxanne" for Hilly, the actors are just lip-syncing to the studio version; though his laugh has been edited out, the atonal piano chord at the beginning of the song, a now-famous gaffe from when Sting accidentally sat on a keyboard during recording, still remains.Cubs Fan
