Angry WT? Universal 'screen saver'?

So I'm watching Casino, and have to pause the movie to go do something. I come back, and the Universal symbol is lighting my room up. I hit play, and guess what? Doesn't do jack. I hit all the other buttons, no way to get out of this screen. So I restart the movie, sit through all the goddamn loading/ratings/whatever, fast forward to the scene and, well continue watching. So about an hour later I gotta deal with something again, and I come back and have to deal with the same shit all over again. Is there something I'm missing? Why would they do something so MORONIC? Why can't the screen go black like every other goddamn Bluray? I never had a problem with Universal, and I'm not saying I'll boycott them or anything, but I sure as hell won't ever do anything but ***** about them from this point on.

Oh great, it just popped up again, on the title screen. Now I get to go through all this again. If this is me just missing something, I admit I'm dumb. I'll honestly think I'm the one at fault here before I think that a giant entertainment company like Universal would do something so pathetically retarded.

I dig the screensaver for those times i might have dozed off. I'd rather hit the ENTER button than have it sit at the disc menu all night.

For my PS3 all I have to do is press the 'Pop-Up Menu' button on the remote and it goes away.

this "feature" is only on UNIVERSAL blus and I was kinda freaked the first time that happened too-- I think I just hit a bunch of buttons until I got it to stop-- I wanna say that hitting the pop-up menu button gets rid of it as well as "enter"

I actually kind of like the Universal screen saver, looks cool. I remember having to figure out how to resume but it took like 2 seconds ... guess I got lucky

To the OP, step back and take a breath. Put away all sharp objects. It's going to be alright bud. It's just a screen saver.

This is seriously one of the best features. Hit a any direction on the directional pad and it'll be good to go.
