      I actually thought that you exaggerated a little. But that's just my opinion.

          My sister hates when my brother in law and I watch movies because we have to blast it to hear the dialogue. Then an explosion shakes the house and wakes the baby 😂

              I swear. You can't watch movies without subtitles because their music and some effects blare over the dialogue

                  Even movies that were released in theaters have this problem when watched at home. Like, why?

                                        Idk why but explosions and other loud sounds are always really quiet on my tv/stereo set (idk what does it). Like I get the music and dialogue bit, but for whatever reason my thing gets way too quiet whenever there is a sudden loud sound.

                                                I've never been lonely. I've been in a room -- I've felt suicidal. I've been depressed. I've felt awful -- awful beyond all -- but I never felt that one other person could enter that room and cure what was bothering me...or that any number of people could enter that room. In other words, loneliness is something I've never been bothered with because I've always had this terrible itch for solitude.

                                                        Actually inaccurate, but anyway....
                                                        Streaming-services like Netflix and Spotify suffer from level-compression. But while, sure, many physical home-video-releases do suffer from that as well, there are also plenty of great ones that are well-balanced and dynamic. - Maybe you've been getting the wrong ones if you think it's all the same.
                                                        (Yea yea, I know it's a joke. But it's just highly inaccurate.)
