^ Well, the 3D was there. The picture was just too dark and made things hard to make out. I haven't watched many 3D titles, but so far, this one has been the most shrug worthy in my opinion. It's not awful or anything, just underwhelming. I've also thought that I should probably adjust the settings each time I watch 3D, though. That might really make a difference. I just have a feeling I would forget to switch it back.

I skimmed through this movie in 3D and I wasn't impressed. In scenes like the Frost Giants world in the beginning had very little of the 3D effect and because the image is darkened in 3D I would prefer to watch Thor in 2D. Perhaps a very bright projector might help this but...

The best 3D in Thor takes place during the daylight town scenes, particularly the scene where the robot terminator wreaks havoc on the town and Thor. Even so, Thor's 3D is not as weak as Clash of the Titan's 3D.

Picked this up yesterday. I was debating between the 2D and 3D versions but the 3D was only $5 more so...what the hell.

Anyway, I really enjoyed the movie but the 3D was VERY lacking. I started the movie in 3D and things got off to a rough start. My biggest gripe being the horrible use of 3D during the darker scenes (in the land of the ice giants/night scenes)...it seemed to soften the picture and give it a very washed out look, blacks became grey and smudged, just VERY ugly to look at. After seeing this during the first 20 mins er so I took the 3D film out and stuck the 2D in and couldnt believe how much better the dark scenes looked...it actually had better "depth" in 2D than in 3D in moments like this. Once daylight scenes started popping up I put the 3D version back in and the picture cleared up quite a bit, it was sharper and more detail was present...but the 3D had a very flat look to it 3D objects in the film (people/foreground-background) popped out of the screen like cardboard cut-outs. Instead of giving off a natural sense of 3D depth it just look like flat people/objects standing an 1 or 2 off the screen. It looked really half-ass throughtout with the only decent 3D depth coming off some of the CGI heavy scenes like the metal giant terrorizing the town and even then its almost unnoticeable.

oh well. For PQ I'd say -- 2D is a 4.5/5, 3D is a 3/5, 3D effect - 1.5/5, Sound - 5/5, Movie - 4/5.

Good movie with horrible 3D. i dont regret spending the extra $5 for it but the 2D is the way to go.

hi!
Since Paramount's movies distributor in my country (thank You very much, Imperial-Cinepix) decided not to release "Thor" BR 3D at all, I had to buy my disc in Czech Republic (their 2D+3D edition has polish subtitles).

Everything is fine except that the cover is in... Czech language.
Can't stand seeing this eccentricity it on my BR discs shelf (

Could anyone please scan & share his english language "Thor" 3D cover (300dpi most welcomed)?
Best,
RR

I really don't see the complaints in this movie. It seems a lot of people will slag of the 3D if they know its a post convert. I think the tech is getting to the point where it would not make much difference soon. I really enjoyed this movie and can't understand people watching something in 2D if there is a 3D version.just seems so odd to me.Anyway.

i watch thor in 2d eventhough i have it in 3d. the 3d is just not worth the effort of cleaning my glasses and hitting a few extra buttons. lazy i know but the 3d is just sad. i actually prefer to watch thor with motion flow on. it seems to be more 3d that way. i wish my tv could do motion flow and 3d at the same time. ok fire away.

No mate, no firing from me. If that's the way you enjoy it, its fine by me.
Can you explain what motion control though is? I'm not familiar with it..

Pretty sure it's an option to make any movement in the film to move at an smooth rate by increasing the frame rate a little bit, or a lot, depending on the television.

Could be wrong though, just my guess.

yep thats motion flow. at first, i hated it, but ive been using it more and more. once you get use to it, it just makes for a more clear picture. part of the reason i like it, is that it makes the 2d on my vizio look a lot better. like i said, sometimes smooth motion is more 3d than actual 3d. basicly, smooth motion puts everything in focus - foreground and background.

I can understand why some people would choose the 2D( like if they think the 3D is bad or they're are on of those "hate 3D!" and "3d is a gimmick!" haters :P), but I agree fully with everything else you're saying.

I personally love the 3D in thor. One of the best post conversions, even accounting the Avengers amazing use of 3D imo.

Cheers

Haven't seen the Avengers yet, but am really looking forward to it. I also really like Captain America. Another great conversion. I wonder if on some of the "darker" movie's (Fright Night, Thor,Priest ), if using active to watch makes much of a difference..From what I have gathered the image is not supposed to be as bright as passive, and I can imagine it must make a big difference.

Also does anyone know if the sequel to Thor being shot now in Sydney is being filmed native?

well i will retract this statement. watched thor again in 3d to prep for avengers, and i have to say, i liked it a lot more the second time. so to all you out there....thor 3d is pretty damn good (its no avengers or wrath of the titans), but i would recommend it!

Agreed. Thor's 3D is actually better than most people give it credit for. Nice 3D layers.

I still think a lot of the Jotunheim scenes from what I can remember are absolute reference quality 3d IMO. Sure it's dark, but I can see things plenty fine on my setup and it looks amazing! XD
