The Least Popular DVD Game™

Object: Find the least popular DVD at Amazon, using their "Amazon.com Sales Rank" data.

Rules:
  • The DVD must be sold by Amazon.com. DVDs sold by foreign Amazons, zShops or sellers do not count.
  • The DVD must be in stock and ready to ship within 5 business days or less.
  • The DVD must have an Amazon-provided cover image. If it says "No Image Available", it is disqualified. User images don't count.
  • The DVD can be any edition or version as long as it fits the rules above.
  • The DVD can be OOP. As long as Amazon.com happens to stock it, good for you.
  • You can post a different version of a movie (CE vs. LE, 2-disc vs. 1-disc, FS vs. WS). You cannot do a duplicate pick by repostong the same version of a movie.

Scoring/Winning
  • Since sales data changes often, we'll take your word for the rank. Ranks should stay similar long enough for someone to corroborate it.
  • Your "score" is the summation of the rank of two picks you've made. You can always make later picks to raise your score if you find a lower sales rank.
  • Post the DVD title, the Amazon URL, and the sales rank.

Tips for the Lazy!
  • After searching, list by best selling. You'll then see the URL switch to something like this: .../exec/obidos/search-handle-url...?page=1...
  • That page=1 is the key. To get to the last page, dvide the results by 10 and add it to the page. If there were 323 results, switch it to page=33. If there were 15238 results, switch it to page=1524.

The Prize: Honor, fame, and adulation.

Enjoy!

The worst thing about this is the fact that Amazon gives recommendations based on what you've viewed in the past.

One of the rules is that it has to have an Amazon image... so this one doesn't count.
