What tropes/clichés are you fed up with in films?

Does that happen often? Aren't the microphone and camera close enough to one another to not have this happen?
When I was an extra in a western (one that was rather loose with facts), when they fired the cannons, they had someone with a timer to set off the explosions to simulate the travel time of the cannon ball.
Stuff like this is rarely recorded with live sound. Explosions and gunshots don't sound very good when recorded with normal microphones.

I'd say the timing of sound to explosions or lightning is 50/50 in most media.

I once witnessed a bus bomb explosion in the desert for forensic investigation practice. I was a mile away and the shockwave hurt.
