Chipwrecked - sound mix

I was in no big hurry to see Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked and it finally bubbled to the top of my Netflix queue. Yeah, I know…shoot me now and pass the earplugs.

Is this the future of DVD sound? The bass was obnoxious. Not just “a bit strong” but so overwhelming that I had to do something I have never done before - I turned off the subwoofer.

I saw Mark Mothersbaugh was involved with the music, but usually, his presence serves to make music interesting, not overwhelming.
