This is something my lecturer in my Audio Engineering Course mentioned today, that was quite interesting.

You’ve seen things like fireworks in real life, I assume. In reality, we hear the explosion after we see the fireworks. And we accept that as perfectly normal, because we know that light travels faster than sound. Yet, have you ever noticed that in movies, we expect to hear the fireworks at the exact same time as when we see them? Almost as if we are right next to it.

I just thought it was an interesting point. Why is it that our expectations of movies and television and the like are completely different than our expectations in real life?
