Oopsie.

I won't steal it, but I may check if early sales still work when I get home.  Loved this movie in the theater.

That and Justice League is in 1080p on the torrents. They need to release the movie next Tuesday.

It wasn't that great anyway.

Hulk's hammer?  Thor said he'd never get that image out of his head.

Since I found streaming sites, I haven't downloaded a movie in well over a year. I let other people do it now and I just watch.

Yes the HD version has hit the streaming site. Watched it last night.

I had already preordered a fancy steelbook version from the UK so I didn't feel the least bit bad about grabbing the download.

one of the advantages of using your own copy in VLC is you CAN TURN down the FARKING DYNAMIC range of the AUDIO

I've not had that issue within a movie or show itself. I've watched movies online that were overall quieter, but nothing dynamic inside the show or movie itself.

YMMV

Can VLC for Android do that?

It's generally pretty terrible.  I end up watching most things with subtitles so that I don't wake the kids up with explosions and gunfire (or soaring thematic music), which means I can't hear any dialogue.

His role in the Kingsman sequel was the crowning achievement of his career. That was seriously funny or ridiculous depending on your disposition.

DRTFA but  I hope folks understand the importance of VPN and other safeguards if they torrent. That is why I need to better secure my WiFi so some rando doesn't create a logged history of stealing intellectual property through my connection. It would be harder to prove it was me.

I am looking forward to freeze framing some of the exterior shots to look for Kirby influences in the architecture.

Look in iTunes.. place a preorder.. nope, they must have fixed the glitch.

Heh. Serves Jizz-knee right for the outrageous prices they charge for their crap. Now that Dizz-knee p0wns Marvel they think far too highly of their DVD/Blu-Ray prices and this makes me smile.The market wiill adjust itself: people will pay only what they are willing to pay, and if there's a way around paying too much the people will find that bypass.

I think Thor: Ragnarok is one of those movies that people will buy, even if they did download it, because it's frickin' awesome and they want to support making more movies like that.

You also missed a perfect chance to type out Disney with a $ replacing the S because it will show the world that they're a soulless corporation out for profit but you have them totally figured out maaaaaan

It's a 2500kbps over-compressed H.264/AVC file. 2500kbps would be pretty good for HEVC, but to my mind, this is a bit splotchy for a big budget spectacle with a $20 price tag. I don't know if that's a product of the web capture process that was used or if the capture is a bit-perfect copy of the source file, but if it is, I'd be pretty peeved to get it that way.
 
2018-01-24 11:11:08 AM  
It's funny.  I mostly enjoyed Thor: Ragnarok, but I had some gripes; there were aspects of it that bothered me.

But as more time passed since I saw it, I found myself in retrospect caring less about those gripes and remembering instead the parts I really did enjoy.  I'm now looking quite forward to seeing it again, though I will wait until I find a legit source.  I used to be quite the scoundrel, but these days I only pirate stuff if there's no legit option available (such as a nearly decade old TV show that will never be released on DVD or streaming)

That said, it always amuses me when a minor and easy to check for mistake causes a major corporation or two some mild embarrassment.  Ha ha!

all this really points to is that they really should just release the damn movies as soon as possible legitimately.  The digital version was simply there a month before street date.

why hold it for another month?  what's the point?  just release it.  the whole "street date" crap is just obsolete.

It's like they don't even understand.

I thought about that.. perhaps some theaters are still showing it.

Some of us don't know those sites, wouldn't type "free movie streaming" in google, or don't trust random clickable links from youtube.

Not being snarky. I don't know the first thing about that.

Then go with less random clickable links. There's a whole subreddit just for that.

The disc will have its own consumer marketing campaign. There's probably a lot of money wrapped up in signage and standees and stuff, plus planned windows of release for competing products to consider. It's not as big as the first run movie, but marketing is still significant.

don't care.  especially now that they have gotten in the habit of releasing the digital versions weeks before the physical copies anyway.  The discs can be released to stores whenever they want, with full signage and promotion.  However, if they have encoded the digital version and sent that file to the services, just release it.  Holding it back is just stupid.

streaming a torrent protects your IP? Link me up to the know how bro!

Streaming a hosted file that doesn't use bittorrent for its delivery mechanism likely doesn't have any legal consequence for the viewer. That file will show up on services like Primewire so that they can be accessed by zillions of tools that are configured to access an index of streaming sites (e.g. Kodi with relevant addons installed).

Honestly since the six strike rule is dead, currently there aren't a whole lot of legal ramifications for torrenting at the moment.  They still file suits, but not that often, and mostly just send those warning emails.

They've just about given up.  Not completely of course, but on the whole, the days of granny getting sued for 2 million dollars for a Bieber song are done.

I appreciate the feedback. Using Plex on Roku with a Spectrum connection. The warnings they flash after a detection to anyone at my IP creates a level of tension at home that doesn't lead to a harmonious society.

I've read Kodi is possible using a Roku but what seemed like a Rube Goldberg process at first glance seems to provide too little gain for the effort. The wife acceptance level is almost optimal currently, and I would hate to tinker with that.

/Sideclick for the one remote to rule them all!
//sorry for any threadjacking. Thor Ragnarok is a fun flick.

They will still see your ip, but you aren't doing anything illegal. You aren't hosting, downloading, or sharing copywritten material. The people hosting the movies are on the hook for copyright infringement. Just like going to a sports bar to watch a PPV, the bar is the one at risk for getting fined...
