Tried my copy again on my new Blu-ray player and while it stopped at the exact same scene, I pushed the forward button and after a while the picture started moving again. When I moved back again to when the picture originally frooze, it moved with no problems whatsoever. It got stuck again about 20 minutes later, but I did the same thing and it worked once again.
Odd, but at least I can watch the movie now!
Sometimes you just can't play digital on blueRay. Try you old DVD player.
