Mad Max, Scarface, Forrest Gump, The graduite (wothy of a 5.1 upgrade.)
Any of Winstar's "Cartoon Crazies" DVD's.
They simply layered canned music and sound effects over 16mm mono optical sound tracks....
If a remix can't be done right, leave it alone!
After waiting impatiently for the release of Rock-n-Roll High School, I can sadly report that it is easily the worst sounding DVD I own.
with Mad Max, I prefer the mono version, but I thought that the 5.1 version sucked
Mash, the movie., hard to listen too.
The worst of the DVDs that I own is Crimson Tide.
Hey don't don't dog on Crimson Tide!!!!
I really like that movie
Although long out of print, One of the worst dvds I have ever heard was Anchor Bay's first release of Evil Dead II. That damn thing sounded like they took the entire soundtrack off of someone's answering machine. Weak, thin, muffled and distorted to the extreme
This film had an awesome mono soundtrack when I saw it at the movies and even the VHS tape had better sound quality than the first dvd version. Sadly the newer THX approved version does not even have the original mix on it, Thus "Evil Dead II" has yet to have it's inivative theatrical soundmix done any justice on the dvd format.
I submit the Death Machine disc. The thing is a good 10 dB quieter than anything else, and boosting it up does the poor sampling no favors. (I know, not a well know disc, but I love it).
PCM sounds as if you are in a tunnel!
Now what is good at least is that the Halloween DVD has both the original restored mono and an restored 5.1 soundtrack.
I know people were complaining that superman se had a bad remix, but I just watched the mono unrestored version on abc family and they both were horrible. The great music was very hard to hear, and there were so many scratches on the print to make it unwatchable, but somehow I did so I am glad I got the dvd.
