wow, having issues with redbox bds.
rented girl with the dragon tatoo on br and the pq was really poor, so bad that i concluded that i was watching a dvd not a br. called redbox to complain and the gave me 3 promo rental codes to make up for it. fine
now if you call redbox their automoted phone service sez, "if you are having
problems with your copy of the girl with the dragon tatoo press 1" which seems to support my hypothesis that there renting purported bds which are actually dvds.
last night, using one of their damn promo codes, i rent br tinker, tailor, soldier, spy and the disc wouldn't read. it played all the previews just fine and got right up to where the universal logo starts spinning which usually means its loading, but the damn movie wouldn't play. tried all the usual tricks, reboot, wipe with micro fiber, open/close tray but nada.
i call redbox today and get 3 more promo codes, but i am really starting to wonder if they're doing something fishy with their br titles.
maybe they're buying them from the chinese counterfeit market, but 2 in a row is very weird.
