I hope this question doesn't come across as too opinion-based, but when watching Interstellar I noticed, that the sound mixing was a bit "off". Dialogue was sometimes very hard to understand and simply overpowered by the sound effects or Hans Zimmer's (albeit amazing) score. Now normally I'd just brush that off based on the fact that I'm not a native speaker (though I've seen other better understandable movies in English), my theatre might not be perfect and not everything can be perfect in a movie. But I heard that others around the world uttered similar complaints, too and that Wikipedia says about the sound design:
Christopher Nolan said he sought to mix the film's sound to take maximum advantage of current sound equipment in theaters. Nolan paid close attention to designing the sound mix, for instance focusing on what buttons being pressed with astronaut-suit gloves would sound like. The studio's website said, "The sound on Interstellar has been specially mixed to maximize the power of the low end frequencies in the main channels as well as in the subwoofer channel."
Which, even though it comes from the probably biased studio website, suggests that there was special effort put into the sound editing. So I'd like to know, is there some unusual reason for the apparently strange sound mixing in this movie or was this just a naturally "not so good" part of the movie (or is it just me and my theatre)? Was this maybe due to the techinical reason that it was tailored to top-notch sound technology in theatres and therefore the sound in not too top-notch theatres had to suffer? Or was there even an actual intention behind this seemingly difficult understandability of the dialogue?
