Looking forward to seeing this. Enjoyed the 1st one but missed pt.2 in theaters. Picked it up at best buy.

Really hoping for some deals on the other Marvel 3D stuff. They NEVER seem to drop in price.

I thought the 3D was too dark as well. I will not be viewing the 3D version anymore. Next time around it will be the 2D version that I pull from my steelbook.

I thought both the Thor movies had good 3D, especially The Dark World. And definitely better than Iron Man 3 3D - was very disappointed with that one.

Movie was also good in the second watching... I remember leaving the theater not satisfied but not anymore. Have to watch a movie twice (not in the same day) for me to express my opinion.

Watched this tonight and thought the 3D was pretty poor.

I couldn't believe that THOR2 would be as hard to get as it was.. Everyone SOLD OUT of the 2 and 3d till I found it at SAM'S CLUB and had to pay 28 for it. WOW!! I got it and found even the beginning of it very well done, Just seems like a lot of 3d movies are done in the dark for some reason and that isn't helpful at all. Other than that I liked it a lot.

Count me in as another who was pleasantly surprised by the 3D in this one, especially after the review here and several less-than-glowing comments. I thought it was on par with Man of Steel & Wolverine (though none of the 3 are among my favorite 3D experiences, converted or native). Darkness didn't seem like such an issue for me, and it didn't affect my 3D enjoyment.

My question is: was it just me, or did they go cheap and not bother converting the two scenes in and after the credits at all?! Those two scenes were completely flat on my display. Was it the same way in the theater?

Fun movie, anyway... and like I said, I enjoyed the 3D version, so I'm glad I picked it up.

Yeah it was too dark to really appreciate it. Not quite as bad as Iron Man 3, but not much better really. I thought Wolverine and Man of Steel were both better suited to their respective conversions

THOR : Dark World 3D:
3D at home for Thor The Dark World is a very nice, consistent Medium 3D with the layering. Hardly any pop out if you're looking for it, other than two memorable "right at you" objects flying out. This does look a bit better on my Vizio and Sony Bravia 3D screens than it did in the Cinemark Theaters.

The 3D is actually pretty good medium and consistent 3D, with a few mild shots once in a long while. Nice conversion here on par with Captain America 3D, and I'll say Thor 1 3D, which if you look close enough, has about the same layering of 3D as seen here in many shots, though this is a cleaner conversion with less warping errors if they're even noticed in this one.

Too Dark?
A few comments about Thor The Dark World being too dark to appreciate the 3D. I haven't noticed that with this film, but have the backlighting up all the way for a bright screen, and some great contrast of colors, with rich dark ranges.

All of the Steel Books at Best Buy were sold out.
Off topic, but Best Buy has a lot of 3D movies all selling for 34.99, including Avatar 3D, which original was released for 19.99 and stayed that price for nearly a year. Best Buy is not going to make many in store sales charging so much for movies that have been out for a good while.



Favorite scene: (slight spoiler)
The action scenes right after that Monster breaks out of the Prison and the fight begins, with the cutting ships striking the main base to find Jane Foster.

I watched this again last night and loved it, as a movie and for the 3D.

I think its more enjoyable than the first as it feels like the "bigger" movie.

Glad you liked it Sookymonster.
The 2nd watch at home improved in the enjoyment of Thor The Dark World and the 3D, both of which I liked the first round, but even better on the 3DTVs.

They were clearly going for more humor here.

The funniest scene in the movie for me was with Stan Lee.

The Scientist, standing in front of a blackboard filled with theories, was giving a speech to an unseen audience,
[Show spoiler]using two different shoes as an analogy to the portals of the galaxies merging, and then he asks at the end, "Any questions?" After a brief pause, it's revealed he's speaking inside a Mental Institution and Stan Lee, playing chess, turns and says, "Yeah, can I have my shoe back?"

Hilarious IMO.

Good question. It was like that in theaters too.
I assume Stereo D, who did this respectable conversion, wasn't paid to convert more than the original film they were sent, and possibly those two last shots were filmed after the conversion was nearly complete and the deadline already hit for getting it printed and out to theaters.

2D added scenes are rarely ever converted for the sake of home video sadly, as that would be a possibly considerable extra cost.
