Great movie, Bad DVD/unplayable
on February 25, 2008
The movie itself is excellent, and the way in which the DVD was made as for menu was fine, BUT, there appeared to be a problem with the manufacture of the DVD disc itself.
I purchased the movie and watched it, but right at the middle of the film (during the auction house scene) the DVD would become unreadable, with only bits of sound or a refreshed frame here and there. The unreadable nature continued for all chapters to the end of the movie (thus, the second layer was unreadable, as the first played perfectly). I returned the disc for replacement, and the second DVD had the exact same flaw at the exact same time. Thus, a manufacturing defect. Problem reproduced on 2 DVD players, and in a new computer as well.
Good movie, good menus, bad discs.
