spoke to the guy in media and told him about the recall. He was surprised by this and I pointed him to the recall web site regarding SPR and to look out for the UPC. He said it should be no problem to do a swap out.

There is a huge problem with the Blu Ray of "How I Met Your Mother" Season 4 with fat PS3's.

I got it on Netflix the other day and couldn't get it to play what so ever, even with a workaround I found online - http://www.thebuzzme...n-60gb-ps3-fix/

I bought a copy of Hot Tub Time Machine and all it had was the theatrical cut of the movie with no special features. It is suppose to have a unrated version of the film along with the special features.

Sounds like Blockbuster's rental only version

I bought it at Bestbuy with a Digital Copy. I bet the disc got mixed up in shipping. I think I'm going to return it to a different Bestbuy and see if it happens again.

It might be that the disc I got was pressed wrong cause I didn't see anything on the disc saying it was a rental only copy but I will look again when I get home from work.

Unlike other Blockbuster rental versions, the Date Night BD disc does not indicate it's a rental version.

As I recall, the disc was red with the Date Night title on it.

The menu was bare bones with choices being Play, Search and Setup as I recall. It was also the PG-13 theatrical version only.

Thank you for posting this as I was looking to buy 3:10 to Yuma as it is one of my favorite movies. I already own it on DVD but I was looking to add it to my blu-ray collection. I guess I will have to be careful.

I don't see any mention of "The Fugitive" on Blu-Ray having the staff person accidentally visible in one scene despite the Special Edition DVD extra being included that goes on and on about the effort they went through the digitally remove the person from that scene. They probably only did it at DVD resolution and went back to film for the BD and didn't have enough incentive to do it again. :)

Pinocchio Platinum Edition needs to be added to the glitch list. There's a known problem of missing audio when Jiminy sings "Give a little whistle".

thanks for creating this list but hopefully it can be updated or if someone can post a link to a thread/forum where this discussion regularly occurs that would be great.

I'll check mine tomorrow. Were you playing it on a slim or original?

Is anyone having issues watching How to Train a Dragon on their Playstation 3? I get between scene 7 and 8 and it goes crazy; freeze, 3 second, freeze, 3 second, ... This is the first disc I have had issues with since owning my PS3 (it has been years... got a 6mths-1 year after launch).

The new Grindhouse Collector's Edition uses the compressed 448kbps 5.1 Dolby Digital track that was used on the Japanese DVD boxset. The previous releases of both movies on blu-ray used an uncompressed 640kbps 5.1 Dolby True HD track. Definitely a noticeable difference compared to my other blu-ray movies.

Good for people to know, but it's not a "glitch" it's listed on the box and has been covered extensively in reviews.

Just ran into that Sunshine glitch on Sony blu-ray players. PiP won't turn off during the movie so it just pops up at times to explain how scenes were created.

I did some looking around and apparently it has something to do with their latest firmware update that enabled 3d playback. Really pisses me off too cause that's one of my favorite Blu Rays.

I haven't tried Sunshine on my PS3, but you can get a replacement:
http://us.playstatio...x.htm?a_id=2245

Fox is issuing fixed copies of the disc to both affected consumers and retailers. To claim your replacement copy, call 1 (888) 223-4369 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 1 (888) 223-4369 end_of_the_skype_highlighting. They'll ask for your name, address, and make and model of your BD player. Replacement discs will be mailed in 1 to 2 weeks!

Wow it was so bad they had to issue a replacement? From what I read before that last update the playstation 3 could play the movie fine I just thought the next update would fix it.

Well, it's incredibly lame that Sunshine broke in the first place, but it was one of, if not the, first to use the PiP thing on bluray. It's possible that something in their scripting didn't adhere to the final specs for the feature, but it didn't affect anything until the introduction of 3d features. I'll be calling to get my replacement.

I guess stuff like this is why HD-DVD finalized all the standards for their format before putting it on the market. ;)
