Anyone experiencing technical glitches of discs freezing, as described by some Amazon reviewers?

In either case, sounds like I should hold off on purchasing this until the dust settles a bit.

Watched In The Move For Love yesterday on my Oppo 203 and the disc froze 20 minutes before the end. After switching off the player and restarting, the disc played flawlessly to the end.

Still hated the green grading though! It may be exactly as the filmmakers intended, but the original colour scheme is far superior. If you haven't seen the film before, you won't mind the new look. The audience watching with me yesterday didn't find anything wrong with the green. But afterwards I showed scenes from the original "red" Criterion disc to them and they were quite astonished at the difference.

Hey guys, I was just reading about the films by Wong Kar Wai and I was interested in picking up this set from Criterion to experience them. I’ve never seen these films before.

I was surprised to read about the shift to green done to In The Mood For Love. I‘ll do more reading on this release.

In the Mood for Love credits two cinematographers - Christopher Doyle and Mark Lee Ping-bin - with many sources also crediting Kwan Pun-leung.

The older Criterion Blu-ray claimed to have been supervised by Mark Lee Ping-bin. Does anyone have a breakdown of how much work each DP did? I wonder how Lee feels about the recoloring.
