After having the DVD for more than a year, I finally got around to watching the "Almost Famous" Director's cut DVD. Much to my dismay, the movie froze in one place and had numerous spots of pixellation, etc. When I took the disc out of the player, I saw what appeared to be the dreaded disc separation thing happening, similar to what others have seen on certain pressings of "Gladiator". I know I can't return the disc due to the time that's elapsed since purchase, but I wanted to see if it was indeed disc related, and not a software compatability issue with my player (Pioneer DV-333). The movie froze during chapter 27 at 140 minutes into the film, with slight skips and pauses throughout the entirety. Anybody else experience this with disc 1 of the set? If so, it looks like I'll be purchasing "Almost Famous" for the third time.
