EDIT: This is a non issue. Got a replacement, plays fine just like when I originally rented it. It's the first disc I have ran into that was this damaged/defective. Leaving this post her just for posterity sake.
This disc will not play running 1.6. It loads and plays the previews, but when you select either theatrical or directors cut at the 1st menu the player freezes with a black screen and MENU on the display. You can stop/eject out of the theatrical loop, but if you select directors cut you will have to power cycle the player to get the disc out. This movie plays (sort of) under 1.4/1.5 however you can't select the directors cut at the 1st main menu, you much switch to it at the movie menu or with pop-up while playing the theatrical release. If you select it directly it will lock the player like under all releases of code.
I have reported this issue to Samsung. Behavior observed on 2 5ks and by another user on the forum.
EDIT: I am adding this note that I think I got a bad disc from BB on this one. They have shipped me another copy, which I hope is not the same one. Given I put it in the mailbox Saturday and they shipped me the new one early this morning, I would hope that is not the case. If it is, I will request they send another, rather than just mark it damaged online to get my queue rolling again. I will be retracting this and the report to Samsung, if I can finally get a copy to act ok for me.
