Dan in real life Blu Ray playback issues?

I just bought DIRL off ebay and it was a sealed movie. It will not play in the ps3. The movie plays about 10 minutes and the exact spot...in the coffee bar when he takes the muffin out of the bag, it freezes. Now when I rented from blockbuster a few weeks back...same thing. I have had NO other playback issues. Anyone else no of this or have this issue?

thanks

D

I didn't have any problems playing it on my PS3 either. I did just have my first BD playback problem --with Harold and Kumar 2-- but I exchanged the disc and the new disc didn't have the problem.

Same issue

I'm having the same issues as the original poster with playback on an up to date PS3. But, I've noticed that it plays back ok as long as I don't fast-forward at all. Pausing is ok, but any fast-forwarding will cause it to freeze up about 3-4 seconds after playback resumes.

Very strange...
