I have to admit I'm biased towards PDL but I really did think that this movie had the best sound in a movie that I've heard in a long time. What with the sweeping orchestral soundtrack blasting the speakers or the car just exploding out of nowhere, the soft, whirr of the wind. I LOVE the sound in this movie. I also loved the sound in the other movies nominated, but PDL got the vote for its originality. You KNOW that a sci-fi or action/adventure movie is going to have a good sound mix. It's expected that there will be lots of bass action. Those sound mixes were just standard, by the book mixes that have now become routine with those types of movies. Who expects an amazing soundtrack to an adam sandler/pt anderson comedy?
