I got a copy of DREDD from Best Buy, (on release week) and popped it into the standalone Blu-ray player only to find that it would not load. You could hear the disc spinning in the player but no progress would be made.

I tried it on a Sony PlayStation 3 and it had the same issue. After doing some quick research on the Internet. It appears I’m not the only one. Another connection is that we got our copies from the same source Best Buy.


I would be fine if say the 3D version wouldn’t play but the 2D one would. A Problem I experienced with The Amazing Spider-Man 3D/2D Blu-ray combo pack. with Dredd it’s only 1 Disc. Maybe buying your media from a single source isn’t always a smart move.


Young Children & Tech: Buttons and Keys

This will be a brief entry.  If your computers and electronics are within reach of young children prepare for the worst.   Here’s a list of items that I know of that could draw their attention:

  • Illuminated remote controls ( TV, Receiver, DVD player)
  • Computer keyboards
  • Computer Mouse
  • Video Game controllers
  • Cellular Phones
  • Portable Audio Players with an LCD screen
  • Television Screens

On a related note,  if  the physical power button is within their reach,  they’ll probably want to press it a one time or another, causing your PC to shutdown (at least if you’re on Windows) .  If that’s the case then you’ll need to modify the Power Management settings and set the Power button on lid to “Do Nothing“.

Just a tip.
