Re: The Avengers - Blu-Ray Review

Thanks for the great review, loved seeing this in the theaters and I can not wait to get it on bluray!
Not sure if I will be getting the 3D version of it or not. I saw it in the theaters in 3D and felt like it was mostly a waste but there were a few scenes that made excellent use of 3D.

Re: The Avengers - Blu-Ray Review

Mike -

I really like two things about this review: Your total ENTHUSIASM and the fact that you're beating a lot of people to the punch with a solid review! Bonus!!!!

I'm not much a superhero movie fan... but I'm definitely going to give this one a spin.

Question: is the Movie presented in 2.35:1?

it's actually 1.85:1 , the only one of the marvel line-up to have a "full-screen" one of the series, but this is Joss Whedon and he tends to like that aspect ratio more than scope

lol, I'd watch this movie over and over again just to see Scar Jo in that tight leather outfit let alone the amazing picture quality.
Or Gwyneth Paltrow's short shorts!

Re: The Avengers - Blu-Ray Review

I watched this movie last night on Blu-ray..
Immediate disappointment was that it is shot in 1.85 AR and on my scope image, the subtitles are below the screen..Other than that the image wasn't noticeably cut off anywhere that I noticed..

It's another "right in your face" action movie with some incredible effects imagery!!
The Blu-ray transfer was generally very good but not brilliant..I have seen better transfers..but then this was a UK version so maybe the region A disc might be even better..

Prior to buying this movie I specifically didn't read anything about the story line and was surprised with the linking of the movie Thor..even though I knew that the Thor character was in it!

Whilst the movie had plenty of thumps and bangs, I was a little disappointed that the walls didn't shake!..particularly when the Hulk was on the loose!!
All in all, if you've been a fan of the other movies..you'll love this one..

I will definitely watch it again and I place it in the same category as Battleship...
