    I know I keep saying "Batman v Superman" Ultimate Edition, but if you want another cool mirror shot, do "Sucker Punch". Again, use the Director's Cut. Zack Snyder's Director's Cuts are always superior to what's released in theaters, and all his movies have fantastic effects. You could do an entire video out of any one of them.

    I actually realized that it was a different one in the mirror shot when her elbow is extended and goes or about to go through the doorway, around then there's this thin white line like a strand of hair that moves over her jacket …. that's a really dark color but it maintains its light color until it hits her body then the camera dips suddenly and it swaps.

    (WARNING : lots of talk about Bad Plane physics ahead)

    7:00 … not an aero – engineer but that's not how that plane would have crashed … Sad no one mentioned but if that happened
    (Again not an engineer or anything but I try irl …. I loved building and breaking stuff as a kid …..
    like make planes from rulers and pencils and tape … and just that ….literally make them fly…. play around with sims and games …. like KSP ,etc and someones Unity test project for example to name a few for about 8/9 years now XD. I make things that shouldn't fly … fly …and then crash them and draw them)

    -… first contact with engines … water floods through props into intakes they suddenly become like drag chutes body gets slapped down … front end goes flat or nose dives into water …. plane rotates somewhere around the front 1/3 of wing. You could say likely the front would have broken off … fine …plane split in to 3 … fine close enough.
    -okay … assuming all that doesn't happen … why did the plane suddenly choose to rotate a whole 30* when the wing caught.
    (even though the sea is flat and the plane went down flat and unless it was side-slipping it shouldn't have enough momentum to flip just slide in the water).
    -The wing broke too soon too …. one chunky for the way it suddenly lifted up and rotated … should have been a big end piece and several small pieces flung out from the back
    (imagine a softback exercise book with loose pages … you curl it to your chest and toss …. bad analogy but it would be something like that . Note … i mean the initial separation not how they fly)
    -If the end piece was so weak to break like that the wing should have shatter again …. closer to the body as it slammed down as it would also now have rips and fractures being pressed in at a strong angle while cutting in to water.
    -Not really gonna comment on how the water should look like someone just did a cannon ball or big splash not so much "spray"
    -plane does not accelerate as the plane hits back into the water and starts its cartwheel … starts medium ends medium with quick cut … clearly wasn't happy with
    -Based on normal structural integrity and planes previous show of strength …. we should see the front of the plane bend like someone smashing a cylinder of …. well metal – cardboard paper roll ….. (literally just smack a long cardboard roll into the ground to bend it and you should understand.
    Be careful not to hit yourself or others or stuff)

    ~~ another integrity note ….. at the end when the plane fully smashes up … the tail of the plane should have actually come right at the camera … or just above … unless still attached to the center body … in which case it should have come and slapped down on top of the camera domino style.
    How it suddenly turned to the left of screen the plane would have gone into a weak spin on surface before sinking.

    At the end of that rumble Thor stands up in super slowmotion and observes his body which is now eminating lightning streaks.
    The lightning however isnt normal lightning, it bends, it curves it archs almost magically and the lightning makes contact with thors skin.
    The contact points glow incredible detailed!!

    @7:43 – That's a reflection on the airplane, behind the horizon behind the plane is actually the incoming night, it's darker, and the sunset is on the right side. Plus, the chrome kind of reflection is visible on the next shot, you can see how it reflects the sunset.
