13 Days - 13 Days Boom Mic
at least 10 times throughout the movie the Boom mic (the microphone positioned at the top of a scene...above the actors. not to be seen) is clearly visible. its hard to say exactly when in the movie (as in timestamps), but for anyone who even remotely pays attention to the film, this person should surely see the boom come into the scene.

I just read the last comment talking about 'cheap PAL version'. I would just like to notify other readers of this site that 'PAL' is simply another video format often used in European countries and is not indicatively 'cheap'. In the United States we use the NTSC format. The main difference between the two is simply the number of frames and fields used. In the United States our electricity is based on 60Hz (Hz=cycles per second). Which means the polarity of the signal alternates 60 times per second. It should be noted that the frequency at which the electrical signal is transmitted is more closely watched than the voltage. This is because most electronics use this 'switching' as a clocking signal. Therefore, NTSC uses 30 frames per second with 2 fields per frame. In Europe, and other, countries the electric signal is 50Hz. PAL format uses 25 fps and 2 fields per frame. If you do the math each format uses the available electric signal as a type of clock to reproduce an accurate picture.

Not just ten minutes. Almost EVERY ten minutes! I nearly thought we were looking at a cheap PAL-version of the movie.
