Sound Check

Since it looks like I won't be using my vast knowledge of sound theory for good or evil, I thought I would make a collection great uses of sound in television and film. I never did know where this fit in, though, film shown on television. It's on HBO so it's not edited in any way, and we have an HDTV, but I don't have the theater-going experience (yet) in my bedroom. Anyway, here goes:

* at 7 minutes in to Die Hard 2, they use the ominous music that is highlighting the bad guys entering the church to segue into the airplane noise and John Maclane's wife on her way home. Very well done.
