My son and I just got back from Avengers: Infinity War. No spoilers here, other than we both really enjoyed it. But as I SO often do for movies, I have a beef. A BIRD-related beef, as always.
So…end of the movie, pretty much the last scene. I won’t say who is in the last scene or what it’s about. I WILL say it’s set on an alien planet. And when the scene first fades in, what sound do we first hear in the background? THE CALL OF A COMMON LOON!!! WHY, Hollywood….WHY!?!?! Why are you SO freakin’ enamored with the call of the Common Loon that you feel the need to put it into practically any situation, no matter how ludicrous!!?!?
Outrageous! A travesty!! Ok, no, I really don’t get too worked up about such things, but as a birder, you DO notice! C’mon Hollywood, out of an entire universe worth of sounds out there, surely you can broaden your scope a bit and stop always relying on the same sounds, no matter the situation!
