It's not on netflix yet so I haven't actually seen it.

To be serious and helpful for a moment, the DVD might have some new type of copy protection that your drive, software or both can't decode.
That has happened to me several times over the years.

I have several movies that won't play in my primary DVD player. Mainly Pathfinder, Resident Evil Apocalypse, Terminator 3 and a couple others. My player is a DVD/VHS combo and I've always figured something in the copy protection thinks the VCR is trying to record the disc. All work fine on my portable DVD player so I just use an adapter cable and hook that up to my TV when I want to watch one of those movies.

If you're asking me, Not unless they're mislabelled and mispackaged. All are either marked region 1 or no/all region. Both DVD players are marked Region 1, that's why I figured the problem lies with the combo unit.

and it certainly had a few holes, but but by superhero movie standards it was excellent and even by regular movie standards it is still pretty good. Topped only by Iron Man 1 and The Dark Knight, IMO.

I really felt that there was good chemistry among the main actors and they all played their parts well.

I can understand not being a fan of the movie, because people have different tastes, but to say it is terrible makes me question whether or not we saw the same movie.

Not unprecedented.

The "Star Trek" reboot (2009) played scenes in apparently random order, when placed in my PC DVD-ROM drive. I can only attribute this to the DVD publisher getting too "clever" with copy prevention nonsense.

I have had a couple of other DVDs just flat refuse to play, probably for the same reason.

Sorry, but DK Prof is correct in his assessment.

Joss Whedon can produce better than that.

I saw the Avengers DVD upon release and it was mediocre at best. The plot sucked.

Compare the Avengers to the first Iron Man, X Men or Spiderman.

It's a matter of taste, because I really WANTED to like it, and I've liked a lot of the super-hero/comic book movies.

I thought the first Iron Man was an excellent movie, and I enjoyed it a lot. The story was pretty coherent, the casting was excellent, Robert Downey Jr. did a fantastic job acting, and characters were developed well. Some of my movie buff friends give me a hard time for liking it because it's "just a comic book superhero movie" but I think it's a good movie on its own merits.

The Dark Night movies have been pretty damn good, IMO.

I thought the first Spider Man was really good.

While I thought the writing in Thor was a little weak - and it FELT a little like a low-budget B-movie - it was still an entertaining movie and I liked it overall.

-Use a system restore point

ETA: if it still doesn't work at that point, your DVD drive may be defective...but you said it's not that, so I'm out of ideas.

Thanks. For now I'm going to wait and see if the VLC guys get it working with their player.
