Watched it the other night, and on one hand I liked it, Marvel movies are always very professionally crafted, expertly cast, look and sound great, & for the most part provide an entertaining 2 hour diversion. However, I also thought this one was maybe the most formulaic, paint-by-the-numbers Marvel movie yet. It reminded me of Roger Moore James Bond movies, formula as can be. Cumberbatch struck me as either unconvincing <when trying to be cool> or actually engaged in the role <lets get mad at Rachel McAdams so I can actually act for a minute>. Only Tilda Swinton really looked like she was enjoying herself. C+ from me.

Another excellent scene is the butterfly, it had me swatting the front of my face. As always, a spot on review Ralph.. Movies like this keeps the 3D movie alive. great special effects with the buildings.
Glad I got a 3D projector, (JVC X35)..
Nice new pictures of your setup Ralph, is that extra seat in the rear for me?

3d Needs to keep alive another 20 years,not just killing it. great and perfect 3d affects always outstanding,it feels like falling in to the picture screen and watching it with surround visuals,sometime even more feeling like I just really there!.
2d can't catch it at that level even 16k resolution 2d effects,never.

Finally saw this for the first time last night. I watched the 3D version and now regret missing this at the theater, as this movie had some of the best 3D visuals I have seen in any movie. Being a Marvel/Disney production the CGI and audio were top notch in this film. I thought the story was a bit "meh" but I can understand that like the other Marvel superhero movies, the first one has to provide the foundation story for the character.

Packing a lot of sound into a small room.
268 square feet/2144 cubic feet
7.2 surround sound.

Any scope screen users frame this to a constant 2.40 and if so, how did it do as far as the framing and 3d effects?

I watched this last night and wondered if anyone else had the image shifting with the depth changes in certain scenes. I was getting black bands of varying width appearing at the edges of the screen. I played with my 3D depth setting but it just moved the problem around. I've never seen this happen before with other movies. It seemed to introduce a lot of ghosting. Did anyone else experience this?

I watched it in this AR for the whole film and found the framing to be just fine (no chopped off heads). As far as the 3D effects are concerned, it also seemed to work but it would be good to compare it when watching in 16:9, which I haven't done yet.

Gotta admit, I liked this movie. Was pleasantly surprised since I'm not a huge Marvel fan (as the comic book shop I frequent owners will attest).

I admit, the first few minutes didn't appeal to me, but after that I was riveted to the screen.

anyone know why Amazon has these as being in stock in 1-3 weeks? Is there some other retailer selling them exclusively for a while? Kinda strange for such a big title.

Having now watched the 3D blu-ray, I agree with Ralph's 3D score; while it's very good, it's not quite a flawless, reference-level 3D presentation. On the whole, it remains a highly entertaining movie that lends itself very well to 3D effects.

I watched if for the first time - 3D on an Epson 3500 and 120" screen. I wear glasses so had 3D glasses ontop of 3d glasses. This probably makes for less than ideal viewing.

I liked it, but didn't love it. I've heard 3D is the way to go, and I can see why, but as a movie, it was OK otherwise.

The 3D version of this movie had a lot of wow moments for me and was probably the best 3D movie I've seen. You owe it to yourself just to see this version of the movie for it's technical merits.

I've watched a lot of 3D movies on my LG 55UH8500+Samsung K8500 player, but I noticed more crosstalk that normal when watching DS 3D last night. I tried different passive glasses that I had but didn't make much difference.

did anyone else notice this? the 3D version of The Force Awakens had almost no crosstalk, as well as other discs that I've watched

This was my experience, honestly wondering if something is wrong with my copy based on the other reviews here. Lots of good effects but it seemed like the entire movie was slightly out of focus, it did not have the razor sharp detail I expected.

Strange (no pun intended, well... maybe), I noticed no cross talk in this movie whatsoever. Are there any specific time stamps that you might be able to tell us so we can try and report back?

The only instance that I've seen distinct cross talk was when watching Despicable Me 2, where there are soap bubbles protruding extensively against a black background.

YES! I did too and its been driving me nuts. It happened on both my Plasma and Projector setups so I know it isn't something specific to either. I actually exchanged the original at Best Buy today and sure enough even the new one has the same problem. I've never had a 3D disc that has done this so the only other thought I have is to flat out return with best buy and go buy another copy at somewhere like Target in case it was some sort of batch issue. I will say though it was a hug letdown since I could not unsee the problem so I ended up switching back to 2D just to enjoy the film.

I actually noticed this too. I thought it might have been my player. Glad to see it's not just me. But FYI, I watched the 3D disc in 2D. I just buy the Marvel 3D discs for the shifting aspect ratios. And I got mine from Target.

I totally agree. This had by far the most crosstalk of any 3D movie I have seen(and I have seen most of them). It was VERY distracting. I was tempted to just put in the 2D disc. Since others here haven't had this problem, maybe I will try to find a cheap used copy sometime and try again.

While this movie was a commercial success, its buzz in the pre thread and this thread seems so much less than other marvel movies, why?

We watched it last night in 2D, it's a great movie, with easy future repeat viewings.

Crosstalk Major Fail

I cant believe none of the reviewers have noticed and or commented on the crosstalk problem on this disk. Black bars constantly appear/disappear on each side of the screen throughout the film. Watching on my LG Oled - Ive never seen anything like this. Its plain bad.

Its definitely a mastering problem - im returning my disk.

Strange, Steevo. I've watched this on my OLED and did not notice ANY crosstalk. The black bars you talk about appearing and disappearing happens more than you probably realize, meaning not just in this movie. When there's a lot of Z-axis depth to the image, I think the image puts the black bars there on the sides to enhance the image depth further. I remember reading about that somewhere, although I can't remember where.

Same for me with lack of crosstalk and also an OLED owner. OLEDs are super sensitive in regards to viewing height and distance. If you're too close and sitting too low or too high in comparison with your display, you're going to see crosstalk. I've dialed in my seating to avoid this since picking up my OLED. The changing aspect ratio I think was intended. I didn't really notice it much as I watched it last night and my room was dark. Thanks OLED black levels.

I watched this last night and I did not see any crosstalk nor did I notice any black bars appearing but I wasn't looking for them. I was watching this on a jvc x500 with playback coming from a raspberry pi2 which delivers a better 3D presentation than any of my BR players. I rate this movie as one of the best 3D movies I've seen esp. that trippy out-of-body experience (reminded me of 2001 a space odyssey when I first saw it on the big screen).

This was definitely the best 3D non-IMAX movie I've watched at home! Great movie by itself, but the 3D really impressed me.
I did find it interesting that the aspect ratio seemed to switch a couple of times - made me glad I was watching it on a 16:9 screen Not sure where people were seeing crosstalk issues - but on my DLP projector I didn't see any.

I'm thinking that the "open your eye" scene is going to become one of my 3D demo scenes

Yeah, I see that too (on an LED TV), some guys i know also. It really is disturbing to watch. The black bar is mostly on the left side and appears/disappears as well as changing it's size - frequently. With the Imax enhanced picture you have size changes on every border and as result doesn't rly look professional to me. You can see it clearly in the following review: bluray.highdefdigest.com/40743/doctorstrange20162.html (especially 2nd comp. under "The Video: Sizing Up the Picture") f.e. without one word to it. Well, it might be the reviewers have such good playback devices they won't notice it (but you should be able to see it in the pictures you post online - my 2 cents).

Even so, but this is the 2nd Film i recognized such behavior - it doesn't happen on idk exactly how many films i've watched in 3D, enough. Can't remember which was the first one, some low budget film i believe - and at the start of 3D. Anyhow, if the film is shot in 3D you don't have that problem at all and for converted films ... i'd guess they crop some frames!? (if you consider that right from start it's no problem.) This film is converted (check realorfake3d), that wouldn't be a problem per se (and 3D generally is great here) but ... nowadays and for such a Budget/Studio i would expect a bit more.

Sidenote: I heard the same goes for "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them". I definitely don't like that even blockbuster movies tend to break with quality when it get's to 3D.

Just curious....what type of Bluray players are you guys using that notice the problem? Just wondering if this is related to a specific player or if is a bad batch of discs. I see one member that has the issue is using the Samsung k8500.

I'm using a PC. I took some screenshots and made a couple GIFs. Just watch the left side.
