Why is the dialogue so quiet and action so LOUD!

If it doesn't fit anywhere else...

How should they be mixed for most people

In movies, series, one can’t hear what a person is saying clearly so one turns the volume up.
Everything is ok and you can hear their conversation clearly and then BOOM! a car crash, explosion, or sudden shift in action blows your eardrums out as the volume level skyrockets relative to the quiet conversation. What is with that?

I think many people like it the way it is; or at least the companies think so.
They think we need explosions to rock us, etc.
I don't quite agree with you either; I think that's too far; I think they should be about the same.
I think in the US many (if not all) TVs have a setting to achieve this; somewhere in the Audio settings; it may be called something like a "compressor" (it compresses the sound dynamic.
