Anyone find Rosencratz & Guildenstern Are Dead??

Has anyone been able to find this at a B&M this week? I've scoured the resources in my area (Circuit City, Best Buy) and when I go back to Cleveland this weekend I'm gonna check out Borders.

But I'd really like to know if anyone has actually found it at a B&M. I don't want to go hunting for it if it'd be easier to just order it online. Unfortunately, every online site has it for $20...

I called a couple local Borders, and they had it on order, but hadn't actually gotten it yet.

Don't know if you'll be finding a better price than $20 at any B&Ms. The websites for Best Buy and Borders have it listed for $22.99 and $19.99, respectively.

Amazon has it for $17.50 and "ships within 24 hours"... of course sometimes I think the "availability" is based more on dates than actual stock though (since yesterday was the release date of course the website indicates they have it "in stock" regardless of whether or not they actually do )

Ugh, figures. I've been waiting for this to come out on DVD for years now, and when it does, no one has it and the only people that do are charging an arm and a leg.

Wait...$20 is too much for a DVD now? When did this happen?

Yes, I know, $20 isn't that much to pay for a DVD, but for a barebones release from an independent distributor, I'd rather pay a few bucks less.

This isn't a barebones release. It is a 2-disc set with over 3 hours of interviews.

I'd pay less for a barebones release from an independant distributor also, but what does that have to do with the Rosencratz DVD?

Wooooooooooah I had no clue it was a 2-discer!

Shit, everywhere I've been looking just listed some crap like 'subtitles' as special features!

Dear God, don't crucify me, I honestly didn't know it was a 2-disc SE. Now I really wonder why no one has it...

I ordered mine from Amazon yesterday, and it shipped shortly after. I've never seen it but I've always heard what a great movie it is, so I'm looking forward to watching this blind buy this weekend.

OK, it's been a week. I've been to Best Buy, Circuit City and Movie Trading Co. Nobody has it. I guess I'll have to buy it from Amazon because it doesn't look like I'm going to find it in a store.

Borders has it now. Picked up a copy today with one of the coupons out there.
