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

      Even with pro headphones on it's rediculous. I swear it's getting worse with each movie too. Watching the Endgame Blu-ray I had to turn it up so loud to comfortably hear the dialogue the explosions literally hurt my ears.

          Dude, I now watch all my movies with the captions on, because if I turn up the volume loud enough to hear and understand the dialogue, when the action scenes kick in, the walls will shake from the loud ass volume, and my neighbors will assume that I've lost my damn mind. They also do this for commercials. When they come on, it's blasting. Thank you for bringing this up.

                  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.

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.
