i really think the other voters on this board are a lil' biased towards PTA.

Star Wars? PDL? Doesn't matter, the award still goes to Gary Rydstrom either way, the most brilliant sound designer in the biz.

To be honest, I've actually met sound designers who say that the Star Wars prequels are poorly mixed.  This isn't the reason I didn't vote for SW ( I didn't vote for PDL either), but I think the sound In AOC is a tad overbearing and not as impressive as other films out this year.


Interesting, since the same person (Gary Rydstrom) did the sound for both movies.

Yeah, he did the sound mixing for both... and the same person (Roman Polanski) directed Chinatown and The Ninth Gate.

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?

'PDL' did deserve this.

As for 'Star Wars', its just the same f***in 'zing' 'zong' 'zang' that we've heard from all the other ones.

Big whoop.

'PDL' sounded like something completely different. The music that didn't appear to match its sequence (but did), the sudden explosions of sound, musical score overiding the actions etc. All incredible.
