Re: The Avengers - Blu-Ray Review

Great review. I too had my doubts about this movie before it came out. I thought to myself, how are they gonna mess this one up. However, I really enjoyed this movie when it was released in theaters, and have been looking foward to it being released on DVD.

Re: The Avengers - Blu-ray Review

Definitely going to pick this one up!

How is it that you can get a copy so far in advance of the Release Date? I was hoping to show this in the backyard this Saturday but alas, it's not available until Tuesday.

Disney movie club shipped over 2 weeks early via media mail. however USPS delivered in less than 3 days instead of the normal 1.5 weeks or so. Basically I got lucky.

Re: The Avengers - Blu-ray Review

My copy just arrived so planning to watch this one tonight and can hardly wait!

The plan is to watch in 2D the first time, then in 3D, then who knows what after that...

Re: The Avengers - Blu-ray Review

I just watched this last night (in 2D) and was really blown away by the video and audio quality on this disk. After reading several reviews I was expecting it to be too dark, especially the first half but I agree with you Mike, this was about the most perfect video transfer I have ever seen. The blacks were amazing and there was plenty of shadow detail in the darker scenes in the beginning.
Maybe it is more equipment dependent than disk. I watched it on a 60" Panasonic ST50 plasma and my TV never looked as good.
This is just a great fun movie and I can hardly wait for the next one to come out!

I agree, the darkness wasn't an issue IMO, it's been kind of overstated by several other reviews. ESPECIALLY if you have something like a good plasma that can handle blacks really well.

Re: The Avengers - Blu-ray Review

I didn't notice any darkness issues at all, but I watched on a nice plasma screen so maybe that made the difference if there is any problem with darkness.

I watched this movie in an IMAX theater. Lets see if my system can reproduce the same experience.

3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ

Re: The Avengers - Blu-ray Review

Great review. Disney Movie Club guy here as well. This is perhaps my favorite Marvel graphic novel/movie to date.
