Thor Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Thor's 1080p Blu-ray transfer never quite excels to the level of absolute visual perfection, but it comes awfully close despite some style-induced bumps in the road. The picture shifts between three very distinct locales -- the golden and very warm interiors of Asgard, the bleak and frigid landscape of Jotunheim, and the bright and clear New Mexican landscape. The transfer is most often challenged in its darkest corners; here, fine detail is often flat and lacking but not because the transfer proves incapable. Rather, the picture can be so dark that shades of black simply dominate the screen, but not quite to the point of crush. There's still plenty of definition and separation, but the image never quite delivers stunning low-light details. In Asgard, the warm color scheme tends to run slightly together; flesh tones take on a golden hue, but detail improves dramatically as evidenced in faces, clothing, and the like. The transfer enjoys the most balance and crispness on Earth. It's practically flawless and borders on the breathtaking; skin textures excel, clarity proves unbeatable, and colors appear perfectly balanced and natural. Still, the image never demonstrates much of a natural depth. It can go soft in a few places, but never to any real detriment to the overall look and feel the movie offers. A light layer of natural grain accentuates all of the positives, but a few minor instances of banding detract from a handful of shots. Generally, however, this is a strong 1080p transfer. It doesn't push boundaries or even rank amongst the elite, but this is nevertheless another in an ever-growing list of very high quality transfers from Paramount.


Thor Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Paramount's Blu-ray release of Thor delivers a thunderous DTS-HD MA 7.1 lossless soundtrack. This is an exceptionally well-engineered track. It's dynamic and incredibly immersive in nearly every moment, whether the most intense action scenes or the quietest dialogue exchanges. The picture opens with soft music that flows so subtly and naturally through the soundstage that one can only wonder just how far the track may go given the innate quality of such a relatively inconsequential yet so perfectly balanced and presented bit of score. It doesn't take long for the track to demonstrate its full range. Every scene is a sonic event as warriors battle on the frigid Norwegian battlefields early in the film. Clanking swords, screaming combatants, and the general chaos of war spill through all seven channels with a clarity and effortlessness that's second-to-none. The track proves incredibly dynamic here and elsewhere as sound effects of all ranges, volumes, and styles are seamlessly inserted into the track. That chaotic action is countered by wonderfully implemented ambience that transports listeners to the deserts of New Mexico, the frosty plains of Jotunheim, and the golden halls of Asgard. Indeed, the track handles delicate vocal echoes, dripping water, and light winds as well as it does intense rock 'em sock 'em combat sequences between Thor and the giant metallic fire-breathing foe known as "Destroyer." Bass proves to be a touch unkempt at the very bottom, but it's nevertheless both efficient and potent in supporting the heaviest sound effects and adding that critical heft that gives the track its body and strength. Of course, dialogue reproduction is center-grounded, crisp, accurate, and never forced to compete with surrounding music or effects. Soundtracks don't get much juicier and flat-out entertaining as this one; it's the perfect accompaniment to a flashy summer extravaganza.
