    Well what can i say, I am very dissapointed with this disc!!!

    1) Took my DVD player 3 attempts to even read the disc!! Player kept showing C13:00 in the bottom right corner.

    2) Once in, and film started, disc is NOT even anamorphic!!

    3) Layer change that took forever!!

    4) With 1hr 14mins of the film left, the picture froze for a few seconds, then went back to 1hr 18mins!! So, I fast forwarded to 1hr 14min, and guess what for a 2nd time the film jumped back 4 minutes!! So i again fast forwarded to 1hr 14min, and this time, all went ok.

    5) With 20 minutes of the film left, severe pixelation, split second pauses.

    6) Then with 14mins left of the film, the disc pauses, then jumps back to 1hr 18min remaining!!!

    7) Had to eject disc, and navigate to the 2nd from last chapter, and watch the last 20mins that way. And it worked perfectly that time.

    So i ask, is it a duff disc??

    Does anybody else have this problem??

    Does my player need a clean??

    none of my other 130 odd discs have shown any of these problems.

    sounds faulty to me. This picture quality is to die for when viewed on a CRT projector, one of the best I have seen, it means didly zilch that it isn't anamorphic IMHO. Mine plays perfectly, looks great and sounds great.
