    I was watching Boogie Nights a few nights ago and I noticed a distinct crakle-like sound coming from the front speakers at approx. the 2 hour mark (give or take a minute). This is the Platinum version of the disc (or whatever moniker the studio uses for the really spiffy edition). Has anyone else noticed this? I don't think it is the speakers, but I'm a tad worried that it might be my copy of the DVD, so I'm curious to see if this crackle is on other people's copies.
    Thanks in advance!

    Was it during that limo sequence with Heather Graham and Burt Reynolds? If it was, it's normal. The crackling was from the music being played. I think the music was supposed to be symbolic, with their lives being like a broken record.

    I was also concerned about odd noises during the scene where Heather Graham "gets down" with Marky Mark.
    Then I realized I was the one making the noises....

    It's not symbolic. It's vinyl. Remember LPs? I know I do...

    Yes, if I remember correctly it is the scene where Heather Graham busts her old high-school nemesis in the head. I thought that it might be the case that it was intentional; there are a few scenes where the 'old' music is played with a scratchy sound, but for some reason it seemed out of place there. Thanks!
