I received this last week along with a Samsung BD5500 blu ray machine and a few other titles; "Up", Yellowstone" and "Wonders of the Solar System". I have to say Im hugely disappointed. Ive refrained from writing a review until Im 100% sure the issues are with the disks and not my machine, TV or cables.
On a number of scenes Im experiencing some sort of distortion along the top of the screen, its reminiscent of a tracking problem on a VHS machine. Its not on every scene, still shots seem to be fine, but for example, a shot of animals migrating taken from above is terrible - as they reach the top of the screen they go all blurry and stretched. I tried disk 2 and the problem persists. "Up" played beautifully, as did "Wonders of the Solar System" and so far "Yellowstone" looks fantastic.
I swapped HDMI cables, Ive installed all the latest software on the Samsung Blu Ray machine and the TV is a Samsung LE37C630.
Im interested to hear if anyone has the same issues with this release. Im in Spain so the cost of returning this registered post is equal to about 75% of the purchase price, so I want to be sure that the problem is with the disks and not my hardware.

I bought this and I watched a bit on my computer and the only issue I found was on the beginning when "2|entertain" appears and I see image distorcion.
But the actual footage is with perfect quality, maybe you should try the blurays on a friend's player to see if that problem is still there.

It plays fine on my LF BD Player and LG 42" TV. You can ask for a replacement...

Under the descriptions states:

"Please note that this product will not play on US spec 60i Blu-ray players as the Blu-ray discs are authored to UK 50i specs."
