Default Blu-ray Problematic Disc List

Thought this might be helpful to those just getting into BD

CONFIRMED CURRENT PROBLEM BDs Unfixed releases are highlighted in red
****
Blade Runner
* Some copies do not have the workprint on Disc 5 as it should be, instead having a repeat of the final cut disc
! Warner has a replacement program available

Chronos
* Some copies had an issue that prevented playback in some cases
! RBFilms has a replacement program available

Die Hard 2
* DTS-HDMA lossless track incorrectly flagged as DTS-HD lossy, resulting in lossy output
! Fox has begun to collect addresses of people with a problem to send out a new pressing of replacement discs.

Dirty Dancing
* Master appears to have been incorrectly scaled prior to encoding, resulting in severe jaggies.
! LionsGate does not consider this an issue

District B13
* The only English subtitle option for this foreign movie is closed-captioned for the hearing impaired, resulting in sound effects being written out in the subtitles. This can be irritating for those who are not hearing impaired, an additional standard subtitle track would have been preferable.
! Magnolia does not consider this an issue

Enter the Dragon
* Master was incorrectly filtered prior to encoding resulting in severe jaggies; effective disc resolution is 960x1080.
! Warner does not consider this an issue, and states a new master must be struck to fix the problem.

The Fugitive
* Master was incorrectly filtered prior to encoding resulting in severe jaggies; effective disc resolution is 960x1080.
! Warner does not consider this an issue, and states a new master must be struck to fix the problem.

Full Metal Jacket (original release only - original cover has white background)
* Master was incorrectly filtered prior to encoding resulting in severe jaggies; effective disc resolution is 960x1080.
! Warner has released a remastered BD with new artwork that is full 1080p resolution.

Led Zeppelin: The Song Remains the Same (both original release and re-release)
* 7-second TrueHD soundtrack dropout at 1:40:45, confirmed encoding error that affects all players. Lossless HD DVD version and lossy soundtracks on both versions are not affected.
! Warner has failed to address this issue as of 3/31

Lethal Weapon 2
* Master was incorrectly filtered prior to encoding resulting in severe jaggies; effective disc resolution is 960x1080.
! Warner does not consider this an issue, and states a new master must be struck to fix the problem.

The Night of the Werewolf/Vengeance of the Zombies
* Severe A/V lag during playback. All copies may not be affected.
! BCI does not consider this an issue

Pirates of the Carribean: Curse of the Black Pearl
* Framing error
! Disney has a replacement program available

Species
* Authoring error where attempting to access the subtitle options via the main menu or the pop-up menu results in freezing of the player controls. This has been confirmed by paidgeek, a Sony insider. The subtitles can still be accessed properly via the subtitle button on the player's remote.
! No replacement program is planned for this

Speed
* Some copies had an issue that prevented playback in some cases
! Fox has a replacement program available

Terminator 3
* Some copies have the main feature encoded in 1080i when IME is not enabled

UNCONFIRMED or EQUIPMENT-SPECIFIC BD GLITCHES
****
Chicago

! Need more information to determine if this is a disc issue

Enchanted

The supplements on the Good Night And Good Luck BR are not playable from the disc's Extras menu on the PS3. The disc basically hangs on the Extras menu screen. You can play the supplements by accessing them from the PS3 popup menu though.

If "A/V lag" refers to the video stuttering problem with 'Night of the Werewolf/Vengeance of the Zombies,'
yep, there you go. I'd add a "some copies" note; it doesn't seem to be universal.

Good idea for a thread! It's tough finding a good place for information like this.

This sounds like it may be a player issue, though? Does it happen on most players? I'm trying to keep it as a discs to avoid list as a player glitch list could get quite long.

Thanks, do you have more info on the "some copies" bit? Were there multiple pressings or is it gear-dependent?

Are we positive about this one? I have the recalled version and I do not experience this issue. Peter Bracke said in his review that he experienced the issue on a Samsung player but not on the PS3 (same player I have). Could this actually be a hardware issue?
