So I've recently bought this on Blu-ray and just have a quick question.

On the cover with Thor/Natalie Portman/Loki/Odin is there "cross patching" on the cover? On the left side where Odin is there seems to be a bunch of "cross patching" or "cross hatching" (not sure what it's called) where it looks like there are tiny boxes almost. Not sure if this a defect on the print or I have a counterfeit?

I've been buying a lot of used Blu-rays lately, and while the discs look legit I just want to make sure that it is. Can anyone check their covers and make sure theres is similar? I don't think the DVD I initially owned, had this issue.

You should post a scan or a clear picture. I see nothing like you're describing on my 2D copy.
You can only have too much ammo if you're on fire or swimming.

Digital Copies Available. PM Me For A List.

Looks just like this one when you zoom in.

When you zoom into Natalie Portman's face you see tiny squares as well as on the left side of the box, especially in the area with the crow.

Here is another movie I bought and has similar "lines" in the artwork.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Trick-r-Tre...53.m2749.l2649

Would you guys say this is a legit release?

Pretty sure those are just the effects of lower-res pix/scans, but ... that's speculation based on 2 pics of "not your" covers ...

I don't have Trick r Treat in yet, but my Thor cover looks exactly like the one I posted, when I look at it up close.

I'll try to post a picture tonight, when I get home from work to hopefully show in a bit more clarity what I'm trying to explain.

Also, this is the exact one I bought from Ebay.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Thor-The-Da...8AAOSwB3BaK10u

Looking at the seller, he seems legit, but just wondering what everyone else might think?

The fact that it has the inserts makes me believe it is legit. It has one of those circular Redbox stickers on the disc too and I'd assume you aren't getting bootlegs from them.

Maybe the artwork was custom printed because they were original rentals.

So if you look at the pictures you can see some "squares". So just wondering if everyone's 2-D version like this or not?

The disc plays fine, but it's pretty weird that the cover art has these boxes.

Hmmm. You said it had Redbox stickers, I believe that is a rental company in the US, yes?

Could it be that the cover art was printed by them, and not by Disney?

If its a Redbox copy, it was sold without cover art. Redbox copies are disc only and come in the Redbox plastic holder. You have to either print out the art yourself or just keep it in the Redbox case.

That it sounds like the most likely case here.

So I decided to try out the movie reward points and they work. Just kind of weird that they would keep those and print out the art work on their own if that is the case here.
