Right, the sweeping flyovers looked good. Two scenes I remember looking bad were:
- Opening throne room scene where Thor is to be announced as king. All the people are crowded around. It's the wide CGI shot of the crowds and the big open throne hall.
- One of the other Asgard shots, a wide shot of a giant hallway with massive statues along the corridor.
I saw Thor several times at a couple different theaters and they stuck out terribly. It seemed like they were maybe added in last minute, perhaps lower resolution. I'm not sure if it's aliasing or noise, or intentional fake grain since I could never pause and rewind it.
