That and the ridiculous price of 23 bucks.

The image is a little bit more filtered than the first Iron Man, another Paramount/Marvel release, which I've compared to the french Concorde/Warner version and the japanese Sony version. Though it should be said that the latter also has it's share of issues like some sharpening in the form of digital noise (not EE) and some black crush.
Like others have mentioned, the dialog is mixed a little too low. It's not like I have issues with dynamic range, but rather, to hear the dialog in the same level I'm used to in other BDs, I have to turn up the volume in some 5 or 6 db. But, apart from that, the sound effects rock the surrounds offer a great sense of envelopment.
ps: Yesterday I also got some early birds from distributors here in Brazil: Disney's Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Sony's Stripes and The Caine Mutiny. I'll check them soon.
I hope your last name isn't Wilson.
Also, Thor would have been a great first name .
