Default Cast Away/BD-1400 playback issues

I got this movie via Netflix tonight. I have the latest firmware and everything.

Halfway through the movie, the disc starts skipping without audio- like I was fast forwarding the movie. I tried skipping the part that caused the hangup with no results- about 5 minutes after I start the movie again I get the same problems. I also had this issue with segments of the Planet Earth movies but unlike Cast Away it never resolved itself. It was a shame- I brought a friend over to see a BD movie and I get this. I was really engrossed in the film but could not finish it!!!!

At first I thought this was because I had a Fox disc, which has playback issues that I've heard. However, Live Free or Die Hard played flawlessly. Anyone else have this problem?

Time to call Samsung and get a replacement player. I can't think of any other reasons why my movies have studdered other than a faulty player. The discs in question were in excellent condition, BTW. Any help would be appreciated.

Hmmm... I guess that makes sense but I had issues with Planet Earth as well. That was a rental too, but BD discs shouldn't be this touchy. I've played scratched DVD's with no problems before, these BD discs weren't marked up in any way. I am still going to replace my player just to be on the safe side.
