The drawl of the Waynes Stewarts and other well known western heroes, spaghetti movies with Eastwood and co, plus the rusty roar and the bark of six guns, the old piano in the barroom belting out the well worn tune "Oh those golden slippers and being reminded of that common phrase by 'Zane Gray' "Meanwhile back at the ranch" you expected to pop up at any moment im his latest book. These movies are still being screened with the likes of old Hitchcock and Musical movies. These movies had what was referred to as background music, this was used to enhance the visual activity but not necessarily blot out the dialogue of the actors.
I am not alone in my opinion with regards to modern movies some are great to watch but to listen to is somemthing reminiscent of the Tower of babel, far too many people cackling at the same time and likened to an Irish parliament,no-one listening either,. Then when the drama gets hotter so does the background "Bang Clang' so called music, reading a synopsis of the plot sometimes helps. however, the best way to get around this problem is to record several movies in advance, then after a few minutes of wiewing you will get a good Idea how the rest will run.
I find mostly American movies and to a lesser extent some British movies fit this overriding noise facter when wiewing movies. One would find more gratification watching a firework display with a fag in one hand and a beer in the other.
