This scene is in the US version and is the only scene from the theatrical version that speaks to Loki's adoption. The stabbing with the bloody blade sticking out is still there too. Not sure where all these rumors are coming from...

Yes, I should have clarified that I watched the US version. Yes "adopted", Yes "stabbing" just as in theatrical release. And yes, an awesome movie.....still!

Twas in the theatrical version

US version is fine, I watched it yesterday. Adoption and stabby-stabby are definitely still there.

As for people bitching about the inclusion of "offensive" things, isn't this why we have a ratings system? And isn't the film rated PG-13? Did they give it the Candyland rating in Europe to make them want to cut it, or what?

No the ratings board are not happy they changed it
post #399 of 463
I was watching the 3D version right now and noticed a 1.5" black bar pop in at the top of the screen at 1:57:23, and a bar on the left at 1:59:30. This did not occur on the 2D disc.

So... they rated the film, released it, then changed their minds after the fact? Yeah that's.... stupid.

That bit IS in the U.S. version at least. And it's not at the "end" of the movies, it's roughy half way through on the Hellicarrier.

Yeah, that didn't happen. I think it's your memory that was altered. wink.gif

I thought they just digitally removed the emerging spear point from his chest, not cut the whole scene.
post #405 of 463
Yes, the spear protruding through the agent's chest is digitally erased but Disney admitted that they made a mistake by doing it for the UK release as it was not cut in the cinema.

When I saw this in the theatre, I was convinced that the blu ray would be reference quality, perhaps the best we've ever seen. The picture was absolutely as sharp as a tack.

I was in for a major letdown with the blu ray however. Not only is this nowhere near reference quality, it's not that much better than average! Colors are a bit washed out and detail/sharpness is only average.

A major letdown--this should've been one of the top 5 best looking blu rays of all time.

A few scenes and minor problems aside, I thought it looked pretty damn good.

I was actually pretty blown away with the transfer on my setup. confused.gif The PQ was the best part about this one from a technical perspective IMO. The audio was very good as well, but not reference IMO.

I adjusted my monitor. I set it closer to my personal preferences rather than the calibrated settings. It does look noticeably better.

The film features a very naturalistic color palette--it doesn't have the hyper color saturation of the CGI scenes of avatar for example. But it lacks the extraordinary detail evident in that film as well.

I would give this film 4/5 stars for picture quality. A bit of a disappointment as I thought this would be my new reference standard.

When someone gets a moment, what color is Natasha's top when she goes to meet Banner in India?

Lol! Thanks for the answer. I had some service done on my Tv and had to re-self calibrate. And I was really struggling betweeen two settings where one had her top inky black and the other more faded looking. However, there is a side shot in that scene where it looks deep red or maroon then I was all confused. Now I know. Thanks!
post #414 of 463
Yeah, I just watched that scene. It's very dark, which makes it look almost black depending on the lighting, and there's that one shot (backlit) that you can see the color stronger, it looks more maroon in that shot. But overall, it's a very dark purple/maroon. The scarf/shawl she had at the beginning of the conversation was a much lighter shade.

My TV is badly in need of... well, let's be honest, a new TV. As I was watching that scene, I kept thinking how washed out the blacks looked, and I'm pretty sure it's just the poor black levels on my TV.. I've been spending more time on my computer than the big-screen lately, and my computer monitor is much newer and much darker blacks.

Yeah, I'm running a Mit 65734 from way back in '08-'09 wink.gif I still regard it as a great picture but the dated RPTV tech is not without it's limitations. This was really made apparent when I first viewed The Avengers BD on my fiance's Samsung LCD. I just makes a huge difference in how the movie looks. And I don't remember how the Banner/Romanova scene looked on her tv but I'm sure the colors were much better.

So one of the things I really like about this movie is the attention to detail from Whedon. I noted things like the security cameras in the hallway when Loki was captured. And after the engine on the helicarrier was damaged, the black smoke drafting over the engine was nicely done. However.......it's been a little while now so it's time to have a little fun with it......there were a couple of scenes on the helicarrier when Fury was in the conference room talking to Cap and Stark and Stark's chest piece wasn't lit through his shirt whereas in previous scenes it was lit.

Someone pointed out a good one a couple months ago. The helicarrier has two runways on it. One of which leads directly over the front left engine. Any plane taking off on that runway (like the one that Fury shot at), would fly directly over the engine and likely get sucked right in. It might have made sense if they had just decided that was for landings only when the thing was in the air, but they actually used it in the film for a plane taking off.
