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.

The security cameras always baffled me because they used the giant, white, industrial security cameras instead of sleek, compact cameras or hidden cameras. A little strange for such a high tech espionage vessel.

I'm 95% certain that Stark's chest piece is always lit, it's just really hard to see in some scenes (black shirt + facing bright exterior windows). LED lighting is also extremely directional, so the chestpiece is usually much fainter when viewed from the side. I may be wrong, but it wouldn't be the first time.

IIRC, they only repaired the rear left rotor (exploded) but never regained control of the front left rotor (arrow virus) so it was not active when the planes went to launch, making it perfectly safe to fly over. biggrin.gif

First time I ever saw her was the opening scene of "Lost in Translation". Good movie. wink.gif

I must admit that I'm not as impressed with her "talent" ever since her cell phone photos leaked out to the Internet a while back...

I don't think he was saying he was offended by it, just that he wasn't as impressed as he thought he was going to be when he ultimately saw the pics. That was how I took it, at least.

Not strange at all.

In highly secure areas, you generally want to make sure people definitely know they're being monitored. I big camera draws attention to itself and reminds anyone with a loose sense of duty to stay on track. Further, those big cameras are often meant to make you not notice the hidden smaller cameras that might also be deployed.

Plus, in some cases, what looks like a big clunky camera is just a tamper-proof box to protect the camera. In other cases, they use the bigger cameras because they have both a larger zoom lens, a larger CCD imager (as opposed to CMOS) for improved resolution, remote pan/tilt/zoom controls and even a heating system for use in areas exposed to extreme temperatures. Finally, those larger cameras are also often less prone to be affected by RF or other interference due to their better shielding.

You can't get all that in a lipstick cam.

At work, in our high security areas, we use those big clunky cameras for exactly the reasons I gave. Simply put, they're low-maintenance work horses that are often more reliable than the technology they're guarding.

We've got the same cameras, I understand why we use them in the REAL world, but it just didn't fit the Helicarrier. I should clarify: aesthetically, the big dorky cameras sort of took me out of the scene - a ship with advanced autostereoscopic displays and that wicked cool holographic helm, those cameras were just too obvious. I believe Whedon was probably trying to make it obvious that cameras were present - as many scenes involved characters watching/listening to Loki in prison - but the same effect could have been done with sleek, futuristic cameras. It's only a nitpick.

Has anyone else listened to the commentary track? It's pretty fun - Whedon is such a nerd! haha

I was watching this before on my panasonic and thought meh, good but not great.

Popped the disc into my sony and hot diggity damn, the disc now has afterburners!

I've said many times that the sony and pana are identical for blu ray playback, but now I'm starting to wonder if the sony might be just a bit better. The settings are identical for both inputs; however, I have the panasonic run through a hdmi switcher. Both the sony and pana are set to the 'avs approved' settings. If lovin' the sony picture is 'wrong' I don't wanna be right!

Pana 220 and Sony 590. I was using the pana because it is a bit quieter and faster. For some reason, the avengers on the sony seems to pop with detail whereas on pana the movie looks a little washed out.

Am I reading too much into the Thor/Loki scene atop Stark Tower during the war? Thor thinks he's convinced Loki to abandon his war, when Loki stabs him with that mini blade? Thor pounds Loki then pulls the blade out and throws it aside? Thor staggers for a second, then goes off to join the rest of the team smile.gif. He does a rough landing on the street below, like he's still bothered by it, THEN they just kinda leave it there smile.gif...Thor show no ill effects the test of the battle. It may be either:

1. They just wanted to show that Thor was momentarily injured by Loki, and thats that.

2. It got lost in the script, and Whedon forgot show why Thor was so bothered by that blow smile.gif.

3...its a slick set up for The Dark World Thor sequel in November. The blade is laced with some kind of poison that incapacitates Thor as he's transporting Loki back to Asgard. Loki escapes to kinda play the instigator to Thor's new foe, Malekith The Accursed smile.gif.

Just odd that they would he would suffer a puncture would, be affected by it like that, then they leave it there smile.gif.

Thor does actually stagger several times following that scene. I've seen the movie so many times now that it's obvious to me, but it's probably more subtle than I realize.
