    No one responded to my post in the HTF review thread so I figured I'd try a thread of my own:

    I know this is a real anal kind of a question but it will help me understand which types of things are glitches due to a scratch or a bad disc or if its just part of the film. At 57:26 when the massive flock of birds flies from left to right on the screen, the edge of the flock appears to jump as if a frame or two were missing. Is this noticeable to anyone else?
    If so it would obviously prove this is not a dvd related glitch, but I would also like to know if skipping frames is a way a player can deal with bad data and if it is ever noticeable in the fashion I have described above.
    The movie itself was really a marvel to watch. The DVD quality is good but at some times a bit grainy which makes me wonder if the compromised picture quality to accomodate bonus material.

    Mine jumps a frame or two as well. Leading edge of the starling(?) flock jumps. I have a Panasonic DVD player.

    Hi guys

    I must have blinked when I reviewed this title because it happened so fast. My copy also has a jump, but seems to look like it goes back a frame. This is not a disc or a player issue, it is in the source element, and my guess it is also on the printmaster.

    Thanks guys. I figured it probably wasn't a disc problem but I wanted to be sure. With the amount of DVD's I buy and most stores policy of only allowing exchanges within 30 days I try to be as sure as possible about these things.
