Top 10 things you should do today...#1 Pick up High Fidelity b4 it costs an arm+a leg

It's going the way of the record. High Fidelity is OOP in all forms and if you ever want to see Tim Robbins in a pony tail getting his face smashed in by an air conditioning unit on DVD then now is as good a time as any. It's 5 bucks a pop for New and it's not getting any cheaper, so I suggest you don't wait.

EDIT: The price since I posted this has gone from $5 to $20 $35 for new copies.

The Blu-Ray is coming out later this year, so who gives a fuck?

I pretty sure you're mistaken. No news of it anywhere. Link?

I read it in this thread: http://forum.dvdtalk.com/hd-talk/599...-releases.html

But I don't know what the original source is.

I thought that's what the challenges are for? But I do enjoy the irony of keeping the forum "alive" with OOP notices.

Or you could just buy a double feature that's still in-print?

What if I've never wanted to see Tim Robbins in a pony tail getting his face smashed in by an air conditioning unit on DVD?

Have you guys seen this?! The lowest price for new is now 19.99 and the sales rank has been halved. I doubt you can find this in any walmart bin because if you could then they wouldn't be in such low supply on Amazon marketplace, not to mention doubling in sales. Ebay is your only hope and they're aren't many left.

EDIT: lmao, scratch that, lowest price for new is $35, for now.

Do I really have to go to Wal*Mart and take a picture of this in the $5 bin for you?

Or you can get the version with a digital copy for less than half that price.

DeepDiscount has it for $5.39.

You can go to half.com or ebay.com and find many cheap copies. There are so many copies out there. Nobody will ever pay more than 10 bucks if they do their homework. Just because a marketplace seller has it listed at a high price doesnt mean it's selling at that price.

Like eBay, there are only a handful of copies left with that digitalcopy one and Deepdiscount says sold out. The point of this thread was to get people to buy this movie before it reached the $80 range. It's still far from that on amazon but inexpensive avenues still exist like ebay. But there is no blu-ray, not even announced, and it's a popular title, this will be an $80 title soon and people will still be buying it. Look at that rank! The rank just got halved again!

The nature of these posts almost makes me believe that that is exactly what's going on here.
