Default Ok Guys...Shall we talk DVD/Blu-ray? (Movie Spoilers)

Ok, the movie just came out, but damn if I can't already wait for this thing to be released on home video! Whedon has already confirmed there will be 30 min of extra footage and it seems like alot of that will be focused on Steve adjusting to the new world, which would be SWEET. It would be nice to get more background on Thor's arrival back to earth as well.

But what would you guys like to see on the DVD/Blu-ray release? And what do you guys think the deleted scenes will consist of?

I was also pleased to hear how involved Jed and Maurissa seemed to be with the script. Since they'll be his show runners on SHIELD, it's comforting to know they're already pretty knee-deep into this world.

Thanks for the clearing that up, I appreciate it.


In the red: is what I want in commentaries is to know why they did something or there reasons or the meaning behind something/what they were going for in the script or what they were trying to really convey.

That's the part I didn't like about The Incredible Hulk. While sometimes it's interesting, I could care less what they were doing on the set that day/eating.:funny: They should save that for the behind the scenes stuff. Now if it was the whole cast or more than one cast member doing commentary, then that would be more acceptable.
Ed Norton should've done that commentary with Louis Leterrier or at least been there participating.

Speaking of which, Louis Leterrier has an accent and I couldn't make out half of what he was saying and had to keep rewinding. :oldrazz: They should always have subtitles for the commentary too.

I got an email this morning saying I was being refunded for the Pre-Order Price Guarantee for the 4 Disc

Just when I thought I got screwed over (since it shipped first, then I saw it was down to 19.99, maybe it was the other way around but still, it was close) and not actually getting the lowest price they come through.



Also, while I'm liking the lenticular packaging I'm glad I was able to snag a Best Buy steelbook. Izznice.

You'll all be aware of the censored version being released in the UK, as well as the shocking lack of extras. While I am disappointed by the extras, I can live without them. And I've seen a picture of the edited scene and it isn't as bad as I imagined.

However, I'm still not sure if I should buy the blu-ray or import a US copy since it is region free. I've noticed in the past with DVD that ntsc is a lower quality to pal, would the film look worse if I imported it than it would if I bought the pal version?

So like I said, I could tolerate the UK version but would obviously prefer the original version. Is it worth the extra cost of importing or should I just buy the UK version?

ticks me off you need a damned credit card for the FREE itunes and FREE second screen app.

If it's FREE why the hell do you need a card of ANY kind?

I don't know what you did wrong on the digital soundtrack download but I didn't need a credit card to redeem it. Did you go to http://www.avengersassembleoffer.com/ & type in your code? The most I had to do was type in the code, then my DOB, name & email address & that was it & then downloaded the soundtrack in the form of a zip file.

No, there's a "Second Screen app" that runs on your laptop or Iphone at the same time the Bluray plays. (shows SHIELD files and exclusive second screen files)
In order to DOWNLOAD that second screen app, you need a danged credit card, I don't have any kind of card and don't WANT one.

Is the Second Screen even worth it? It's a rather large app, and if it doesn't feature anything worthwhile (like more B-T-S footage), then I'd rather not waste the space on my iPhone.

I THINK it's the same files under the Shield eagle on the bluray but my tv it's hard to read. (i haven't tried zooming either)
STILL tho you shouldn't have to have a danmed card of ANY KIND if the app is FREE

Arrgh! I haven't got a BluRay player yet. So I thought I'll just enjoy the DVD for now. The only thing that bothers me is that the EXCLUSIVE 90 MINUTE from TARGET is on BluRay. Why would they do that? Who has to see this in BluRay format...it's a documentary folks?

Ah, but it's a High-Def documentary. Welcome to the 21st Century. Just about EVERYTHING is in HD nowadays.

Trust me when i say this. When you finally get a bluray player and if yo uhavent already gotten a HDtv you will wonder why you stuck with reg dvds for so long.Everything is SOOOOOO much more superior on bluray from picture to sound, the clarity is just so much more better.Another good movie to get on bluray is Transformers Dark Of The Moon.

I got the Target exclusive with the bonus disc and given that the regular disc is so low on extras I'm glad I did.

I've asked in a couple of spots and they may have not even been seen, so that's okay. Is it not allowed to be discussed?

How can I take parts of my DVDs and make a video with scenes from different movies and make a video? Like you see a video of marvel movies that a fan made on YouTube. How are they ripping their DVDs to make these? Is there a specific software to buy or for free online you use? I really want to make some stuff and I just want to get some real advice from someone here who may know.

Well the player I used to watch my dvds on my laptop is called VLC media player, Not sure there's a way to record/play blurays the same way.
The VLC player allows recording from dvds and editting like you want BUT most deleted/extended scenes are for the most part on blurays that I can't get onto my laptop.

EDIT and note, make sure your computer can HANDLE playing dvds first.

Joss' commentary is up there with Michael Bay and George Lucas as my favorite commentary. He's just so honest towards the film. He knows the weak points and he has no problem pointing them out. Makes me very excited for Avengers 2 since he has learned many things from his first big blockbuster experience

I agree. Marvel better lock him up for the trilogy. Pay the man at any price.

In terms of image quality this movie looks better than Avatar and Tron Legacy. But not better than Baraka that was scanned to 4k from a 70mm print.

********. The blacks on this disc don't come near the image quality of the blacks on the Tron Legacy disc. Not even close.
