That is Natalie. We discussed this a few years back. There is also a pic with another view.

Nice. I can ogle in the knowledge of that being Portman's derriere.

That's her until she dives, then it's a body double. Apparently the water was too cold and she didn't want to test it herself. They used a double for the diving shot.

McConaughey and Bale lose a fifth of their body weight for a part and poor, widdle Natalie can't dive into a freaking pond? What happened to a little sacrifice for your art? I have lost all respect for that little minx and her shapely butt.

At least they found a body double with an equally shapely butt. So there's that.

Sorry to report I have not. In fact, I haven't cracked the seal yet.redface.gif For all I know there could be a copy of Your Highness in it. I see you had a chance to give it a proper watch. How was the 7.1?

Well if it has your highness in it then it's worth the wait smile.gif

The audio was good. I still can't believe you haven't watched it yet.

I have no excuses. Well, I do. But no one is listening.biggrin.gif Is the AQ as good as the first Thor? When he flipped that table I swear the foundation of my house cracked.

Finally watched Thor 2 tonight. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Going off memory, I recall the AQ being superior in the first Thor.

I thought just the opposite. The first one was one of those rare movies that I had trouble with a dialog/action volume disparity (in certain parts). No such issues with this one.

Stephen.

Chances are very good that I was drinking when I posted the above.

My kids and I really liked it. My youngest had seen it in the theater and kept wanting to tell us about all the cool parts coming up. Lol.

Here's one for you:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
What did Loki do with Odin? Did he give him to The Collector perhaps? Or is he being held prisoner somewhere else? Any thoughts?

It's been awhile since I've watched the first one. Need to rewatch it again.

Question of the day there Wabo. Actually I don't know didn't think of that. I'm hope someone here will be able to enlighten us on the question you just asked.

Bass in the first scene did not hit as hard as I expected, and remember the first hitting. Had a full house for the movie, but I slipped out of my chair to hit my equipment rack in the back of the room and boost the lfe 3db. Bass was better after that. biggrin.gif

I figured he had him hostage on some other world and Thor will have to make a road trip to save him. Or they just stuck him in Vegas and he is gambling and taking in some shows?

we have the infinity stones, which apparently there's 5 of. The Collector, Thanos and Loki. Avengers 2 could be crazy good.

I recently rented the BD and watched Thor 2 again, this time in my home theater. I liked it very much this time too but thought there was a plot hole you could drive a truck through: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Although Loki is a god and therefore immortal, Thor took him seriously when he told Thor he was dying. Yeah, sure.

I thought the BD's 7.1 audio track was excellent and the film looked good too. By the way, saw for first time two extra easter eggs in the credits, the last one one at the very end. No wonder I didn't see numbers 2 and 3 in the theater!
