Freezeup on LG bp220

Bought my 1st blu ray player in late Nov. and have used it a bit since then, maybe 10-15 times total, with some blu ray movies, the rest, standard dvd's, with NO freezeups until Sat. I was about 1 1/2 hours into "Total Recall" when it froze. I couldn't do anything, buttons did not respond, so after starting and restarting the movie 3 times, and then trying to watch, again, it froze, and I just gave up at that point.
I have had no freezeups until this point. I then went to LG's website, and they suggested the dvd blu ray may be dirty, or scratched, so I did check the movie, and it looked like there may have been something on it, and it may have had a scratch, possibly. Like I said, I gave up at this point. I have been researching this issue all weekend. Sounds like this is pretty common with blu ray players. I do have another blu ray movie I will be watching later this week, will see how it goes I guess.
I take it these are very sensitive machines.....
