Okay, here's a true oddity. Just before and after Halloween I loaded up on some holiday-appropriate titles. Among these was Warner's ancient release of Beetlejuice, because it was cheap and I've given up all hope on any sort of remaster on this title in the near future. I just got around to taking a look at it the other week, and I still got a kick out of it despite the somewhat grotty old transfer. However, something odd occurred...at 1:12:23, the disc froze for a few seconds on my Sony carosel, then jumped ahead and resumed as normal. This was a spotless new disc, with no layer change to worry about (it's a WS/FS flipper), so I tried it on my DVD-ROM and had the exact same problem, except this time it just locked up totally. Figuring I had a bad disc, I took it back to Borders and exchanged it, only to encounter the freeze-up once again. Wondering now if Borders had a whole bad batch in stock, I hit upon the idea of comparing it with a rental disc from Netflix, just out of curiousity. And here's where it gets interesting... The Netflix disc was obviously a different printing, as it has the old standard Warner hub with a white "fullscreen" on one side and red "widescreen" on the other. It plays through just fine. My copy of the disc, however, just has print on one side of the hub, black on white, with a "fullscreen, widescreen on reverse" label. So I checked at the hub numbers. The number on the old disc is 11785.1.A/B (fullscreen/widescreen). The number on the printed side of the new disc is also 11785.1.A for fullscreen. Fair enough. Flipping it over, though, stamped into the hub foil is 11785V2.1.B. So, the widescreen side has transfer "V2." Taking a look at both, I can't see ANY difference between them (same compression artifacts, same print damage), except that "V2" seems to lock up at the aforementioned spot to varying degrees on different players. I therefore can only conclude that this is a glitchy repressing of some sort? Anyone else encountered this?
