Re: The Avengers - Blu-ray Review

I admit to being kind of new this this forum, or at least have not posted too often but I had hopes that this would become a discussion and not a my way or the highway kind of discussion. I think the differences we all experience are just that, an experience. In reality it is impossible to determine how much bass a movie such as this should have. How does one measure a battle between Thor, Iron Man and Captain America ? Can anyone of us point to the last time we actually heard or felt Thor's hammer fall ? With that in mind how can anyone quantify what should or should not be in comparison to...well anything ? Spaceships exiting the ground is close but no cigar, although I understand that some space ships have been said to look like a cigar.
This is all relative to what we WANT to hear, not what we actually know has been placed onto the soundtrack, even every theater in we attend will be different from other theaters. So this becomes a preference that is, frankly, easily remedied, turn up your bottom end if you want more.

I guess these types of discussions do often go into the one is right and one is wrong more often than not, similar to discussing who is the better superhero.

Good Listening

Re: The Avengers - Blu-ray Review

I hear you Jack.

Although turning up the bottom end does not change the frequencies that are being played.

It's like a cheeseburger - 1,000 McDonald's cheeseburgers do not compare to one In-N-Out burger

Re: The Avengers - Blu-ray Review

Wow Thank You Gents, I appreciate the kind words.
I will continue to post yes, the one thing I keep in mind is the difference in the way things get discussed today as when I started to fall into this hobby a few zillion decades ago. Then we met, chatted in a group and by being face to face, the chat seemed more subdued. On line we get a bit more pouncy if that's a word and that kind of ruins a good chat. But it is what it is and one moves on to the next subject or post.

I think most peoples replies are quite valid although some are made by folks that really have perceptions in another dimension. None the less, for me it is ALWAYS a learning experience.

Onward and upward eh gents ??

Good Listening

Jack

Well here is a good lesson, I have never been to an In-N-Out burger franchise. I think the last pretty good place I went to was Five Guys and yep, agreed McD just does not score well in those contests.

Re: The Avengers - Blu-ray Review

I found the CGI in a few of the scenes to stick out in a bad way. Stark tower (and various other buildings in NY) for example looked fake in a few scenes. I'm not a big superhero movie fan, but I did enjoy the movie. Overall, I think it was pretty good.

Re: The Avengers - Blu-ray Review

I have a question concerning the Hulk's rage.
The first 3/4 of this movie stresses how out of control the Hulk is. He will smash anything in it's path, friend or foe. They even show this the first time the Hulk appears and goes after the Black Widow.
During the final battle, the Hulk's attitude/personality changed dramatically. He is now controllable, working with his new friends, protecting his new friends, and only battling the bad guys.
What made the change? Or were we not supposed to notice this change?

I would imagine that we weren't supposed to notice that change.

He crash landed in a Zoloft factory?
