A Plague Of Cracked Blu-Ray Discs From Netflix?

Grant is having a problem renting blu-ray discs from Netflix.

They’re all arriving with an identical crack near the outside edge.

Some of them play; some of them don’t.

He’s documented the cracked discs for us:

9/13/2007 – Casino Royale (Not recognized by player)

9/17/2007 – Casino Royale

9/18/2007 – Flags of Our Fathers (Would not play)

9/18/2007 – The Holiday

9/21/2007 – The Holiday

9/27/2007 – The Holiday

9/27/2007 – Planet Earth: Complete Collection: Disc 1

10/02/2007 – Happy Feet

10/02/2007 – Babel

10/04/2007 – Happy Feet (Played OK)

Hey, Planet Earth was pretty cool, and we were pleasantly surprised by Casino Royale. The new James Bond is sexy, although he looks more like he belongs in a remake of The Prisoner than James Bond… Oh sorry, wrong blog. Anyone else experiencing trouble with their blu-ray discs from Netflix?
