Question about Sharp Aquos BDHP50 Blu-Ray Player
Go into the setup menu for your player and disable BD-Live.
On my player I have three options: Permitted, Partially Permitted (the default), and Prohibited.
Beginning with the Avatar disk (and since with Date Night) I have extremely long load times and Date Night wouldn't work at all.
BD-Live uses your player's internet connection to communicate with a server to download updated content to your system (e.g. up-to-date movie trailers).
Unfortunately, it seems that this is relatively new and sometimes poorly thought out. At least in my case, the default setting of Partially Permitted doesn't play well with these disks. Instead of trying to make their connection and giving up after 10 seconds or so, they just try to connect forever. To the end user (you and me) that looks like the disk won't play and/or something is broken. In fact, it's working the way the disk was programmed to work, it's just that nobody programmed what to do if there is an interned connection but there is a problem connecting to a server.
So fiddle around with your BD-Live settings. Personally, I just want to watch my dang movies. I don't want them phoning home every time I get something from Netflix. I disabled BD-Live and haven't had problems since. Maybe one day this will be a valuable service but for now it's just a pain.
I hope this helps. Good luck.
