    Morning, can anyone shed any light on this?

    Whilst watching American Beauty and Gladiator I noticed that the picture froze for a split second. It only done it once in each movie.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    Its just the layer change. The laser has to refocus at a different point on the disc causing a pause.

    Some layer changes are between scenes so you barely notice them, but Gladiator's layer change is at a particularly inopportune moment.
