Good boom..

good sound recorder..

*GOOD* microphone (will make all the difference)

But having the sound professionally mixed will also make a lot of difference. It's one thing I always see people skimp on... they use the raw audio recorded on the day, edit it into the film, and leave it at that.

The best example I can give is in 'King Kong'. When the actors and actresses are in the dressing rooms congregating, keywords like 'depressing' are mixed louder. That isn't an accident.
