Can't find Orca

Went out looking for Orca yesterday. My local Circuit City, WalMart and Target didn't have it. I know it's probably not one of this week's "big" releases, but why wouldn't stores at least have some copies of a new release?

It is out there, but for more than it should be: Best Buy had it for $12, and a Media Play had it - for $14.

Looks like if I want to get this, I'll get it online. I usually won't do that for a buck or two, but in this case I can get it $4-$5 cheaper from an online retailer, with no tax or shipping cost. Pain in the ass, tho.

You may want to try K-Mart.

They're usually pretty good about getting Paramount's catalog releases. They carried Summer School, Crazy People, Big Top Pee Wee, Critical Condition, etc. on the week of release. And I've heard people at other forums say they were able to pick up Body Parts, Orca, and Bug at their local K-Mart as early as last week. Probably part of their Halloween/horror promotion.

So, I'd say your best bet is K-Mart. I've not been to my local one in a few days, but if I stop by, I'll see if they have these and report back.

K-Mart? Huh. Well waddya know. I probably never would have looked there. Guess I'll swing by.

But if their price is much over $10, I'll still look to buy it online.

Those who've found them at K-Mart have told me that they are $9.99 each.

I've come to the conclusion that any title that is not a mainstream release, you might as well stay at home and look on-line. And besides, as you say, it's usually cheaper.

My "Woo-hoo" was premature. Checked three local Kmarts. Not one had it.

Well, I can get it online, pretty cheap, too. But that might just take more initiative than I have at the moment.

The Best Buys in the Detroit area got their stock on Wednesday. My wife works there. She snagged a copy for me and the rest sold in a few hours.
