Hi, my name's Adam. I come from The Czech Republic, and at the time of this writing, I'm 19 years old. I'm just a guy who submits things on this wiki. I'm a fan of various works from the 1990's and the 2000's. I'm also a fan of some TV shows, and I often play videogames. While I'm watching or playing, I happen to identify which stock sound effect was used.
Favourite TV shows:
The X-Files -- I always liked watching the episodes whenever I came home from school back then.
NCIS -- Not particularly often.
CSI: Miami -- Everytime you hear "Won't be Fooled Again" by The Who, you know that you're in for a good time.
Police Story 4: First Strike (1996) -- One of the most death-defying experiences caught on camera, courtesy of a fight in a underwater aquarium show.
Mr. Nice Guy (1997) -- I sometimes get a kick out of that film. That fight in the construction site near the end was well-choreographed.
Rush Hour (1998) -- One of the best film trilogies ever.
The Bourne Identity (2002) -- Out of all things made in 2002, this is one of the best, and it sits up in the top three, next to The Transporter, mentioned below.
The Transporter (2002) -- Outside of The Fifth Element and the French Taxi series, I consider The Transporter to be one of Luc Besson's best films.
Aria the Scarlet Ammo -- With a slew of funny moments, Aria the Scarlet Ammo gave me a smile, and a occasional laugh with its Tsundere lead.
Gunsmith Cats -- The best three part OVA that I've ever seen. Combine it with the English dub, and you get one heck of a mid-90's aesthetic.
Favorite sound effect libraries:
Dynamic Range CD1 and 2, Series 2000, Series 4000 Hollywood, General Series 6000 + Series 6000 Extension (Sound Ideas), Premiere Edition Vol.1 and 2 (The Hollywood Edge), The Edge Edition Vol.1
Hanna Barbera Large Explosion 03 (A classic that is often imitated, but sometimes duplicated.)
Hollywood Edge 357 Magnum Pistol Shot (Yet another classic that is sometimes duplicated.)
Hollywood Edge M60 Automatic Machine Gun (and their variations, such as from Premiere Edition 2)
General Series 6000 and Premiere Edition Vol.1 Wooden Door opening/closing
Sounds I don't like/don't mind:
Dynamic Range CD1 12 Guage Mossberg Firing (I don't mind the first sound with the soft "ouch!" after the shot. It should've been made much quieter.)
Series 6000 Female Scream 03 (When used correctly, it's fitting for nightmarish moments, but when used incorrectly, I just cringe.)
Series 4000 Long Female Screams (Some, not all of them.)
Hanna-Barbera Long Shell Screaming Down (I almost try to maintain a straight face whenever I hear this, which sometimes leads frowning.)
THX Deep Note (Used to be neutral on this sound but now it's both loud and annoying. At this rate, why bother making the sound at all?)
However, I prefer this over the THX Deep Note:
Dynamic Range CD1 ricochets and exterior shots [except many interior shots sounds] (Yes, due to them finding their ways in a lot of movies.)
Series 2000 Brake Skid 02 (Could be, because many independent movies use it a lot. It's just a short skid with a mild squeal and I don't understand that they're used in multiple pitches, or editing out the mild squeal. It's even used today.)
Premiere Edition Vol.1 Crash with Metal Shatter and Slight Shake After (w/o glass) 2 (Heavily used for vehicle crashes.)
Howie Long Scream (aka Gut-wrenching Scream with Fall) (Overused, but I don't hate it.)
Underused (and rare) sounds:
Soundstorm Glass Shatter
Premiere Edition Vol.2 Car False Starts, Rhytmnic (most likely?)
