Seems they almost never, or take FOREVER to get newly released catalog titles in DVD. I was just looking for BRUBAKER, nope. How about FLASHBACK or MARATHON MAN, nope.

My store has a big selection of catalog title DVD's, but it seems as though they haven't added to that for like the last 2 years.

Wow, my post disappeared, (I know, the database problem).

Anyways, I too have noticed this. My local BB also had a lot of catalog titles (or non-"NEW" Releases) as they call them. But they haven't added to those for a good year or more. The only way more titles show up on the floor, (vs. the wall where they have "new" releases), is when they get beyond the ridiculous time BB waits until a title is no longer considered a "new" release. Currently that waiting period is 1 year. I think that is ridiculous. IMHO, after a title has been out for 3 months, it should no longer be considered a "new" release.
