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.

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.

The Convergence, an alignment of the Nine Realms, causes worlds to be linked to one another by way of portals. When Jane Foster, played by Natalie Portman, steps into one of these portals while on a trip to London, she is infected with the Aether, a superweapon of the Dark Elf lord, Malekith, who was defeated by the forces of Asgard thousands of years ago. When Malekith awakens to resume his quest for domination, he attacks Asgard, where Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth, continues to protect the Realms while his brother, Loki, played by Tim Hiddleston, is imprisoned following the events that unfolded in The Avengers. As the battle on Asgard leads to a chain of events that endangers Earth, Thor and Jane struggle to save the day with the help of an unlikely ally.

The 2013 film, Thor: The Dark World, may be one of the lesser entries in the ongoing Marvel Studios franchise, but it is nonetheless an entertaining endeavor thanks to outstandingly seamless digital effects and a dynamite cast. Anthony Hopkins, as Odin, is brilliant and stately as always. The gorgeous Jaimie Alexander reprises her role as the Asgard warrior, Sif, while the always-lovely Kat Dennings provides additional eye candy on Earth. Idris Elba, as Heimdall, continues to command attention as one of my favorite Marvel supporting players.

For some reason, this movie did not click with me when I saw it for the first time upon its release, but everything fell into place with today's viewing. It's a fun way to spend an afternoon.

Be on the lookout for a fun cameo by Captain America, played by Chris Evans.

The Blu-ray looks and sounds absolutely perfect.

I had my copy stolen 2 years ago. If anyone has a sealed copy of the 3D version with a slipcover I’ll glad buy it.

Right? It's not the best MCU film out there, but certainly the greatest looking one. I always loved the cinematography of The Dark World and the action sequences are exhilarating to watch; my only problem is the weak story and the forced humor.

I never paid much attention to the look of Thor 2, I guess it's time for a rewatch. In general the MCU movies don't look too distinctive but the ones that do REALLY do, so I'm surprised I don't remember much.

I'm not sure he's saying that it's got God-tier cinematography or anything, though Great Owl's PQ write-ups rarely extend beyond a few words anyway. Even if it did look like it was shining out of God's backside it still wouldn't help the film because it's shite.
