I have over 100 3d BD's and Avengers is one of the most impressive 3d conversions I've seen. I'm baffled by this.

Capt. America 2 and Thor 2, on the other hand.....

you would be wasting your money. as long as you have the settings correct, the ps3 is giving you as much PQ/AQ as you can get from blurays.

it's one of the murkiest 3d discs i've ever seen, and the 2d (while a little better) wouldn't be anywhere near the top tiers imho

This is still my reference 3d disc, whether it be for live action or animation, i think it tops them all. Not just for 3d quality, but just flat-out PQ.

the second half of the movie is sooooo much better than the first. the final battle is really great 3d eye candy and reference audio. getting there is quite the chore, though!!!!

I'll definitely give it a full spin, I was just shocked by how hokey and flat the opening scenes looked. Some people are calling the 2d BD one of the best ever, Tier 0 material. Strange.
