Ex-Machina, Cut Bank, Maps to the Stars and Kingsman: The Secret Service all load and play without difficulty. I currently have; The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, The 100 Foot Journey, Danny Collins and While We're Young. 2nd best was a pit to load. Had to eject it then reload it. My player has been doing that every once in a while and I don't know if it is it or recent BDs. What happens is you put it in and you get the clunking sound like it can't tell what kind of disc it is or it can't read it. It does not error out. Seems like this mostly happens with Fox titles, but I haven't kept track. Ejecting and reloading seems to work. Exotic took a way long time to load, just like Kingsman. It's all that new BD Java DRM stuff that Fox added back when Avatar was released and been updated a time or two since. Ya I know that was like 5 years ago....but. Anyhow Exotic seems to be playing fine. I'll list the results of the other three once I get around to watching them before they have to go back to the rental store early next week.

Cassette tape players and VCR tape players I'm good here.

* I paid $800 (Canadian plus 12% tax) for my Samsung BD-UP5000 Duo HD DVD/Blu-ray player back then.
It's a piece of history; it belongs to the audio/video museum.
Just thought I would ask?
I have an old dual-well Sony cassette player and a JVC S-VHS player. They are both in some need of repair; I think the Sony needs belts and the JVC will work, last I checked, however, VHS does bot fully eject, one has to have the cover off and pull the tape out.
I do not care for money for these, but I rather see them used, and if shipped I would need that covered. Lt me know?

Thanks, I appreciate...tape cassettes and VHS tapes I don't use anymore...and I don't think I will...just too many Blus and not enough time.
But 8-track tape players; that I was curious because some of them are the real deal...truly vintage precious history...Neil Young would approve.

* Give them to the Salvation Army store, or to a similar organisation to help the people in need the most.
But nowadays you can buy Blu-ray players in high discount for roughly $29.99 and $39.99 ...or the poorest people they stream from Netflix ... $7.99/month. ...So they save on the cost of used Blu-rays from Amazon.

I have considered it, although some, such as our rescue mission here, will only take working items, the JVC, they would take, not the Sony cassette, it would have be fixed. If I did that, I would keep it awhile , having some 1000 LPs on tape, pre-rock and old rock, (Grateful Dead, Quicksilver, Airplane, ect).

I still listen to some of this on CD releases.

Sorry to take you all away from the banter about old antiquated magnetic analog recording media. BTW - most VCRs and tape decks are pretty easily repaired by changing belts and tires (ya just like a car). I've repaired many over the years. The problem with the VCR is probably a eject mechanism drive belt or possibly the tire depending on design. Same could be with the cassette deck.

Anyhow, back on topic. The following five movies load and play fine; The Second Best Exotic Marigold hotel, The 100 Foot Journey, Danny Collins, While We're Young and What we do in the Shadows. The latter is Paramount, so you know the drill.
