I found a copy of In the Shadow of the Moon at my local FYE store last night. They had received two. Although Best Buy (where I stopped first) showed they had 13 in-store...they couldn;'t find one for me. They surprisingly helpful employee spent quite a bit of time on the challenge. When he failed to find one, he immediately printed me up a raincheck so I could be sure to get their price.
On the same trip I stopped at Circuit City to see if I could find some of their $6.99 titles this week (with the movie cash). I was only doing this to help out my daughter in Virginia who had called to complain she had zero luck at her local CC.
The four titles she wanted: The Patriot (new release), Memoirs of a Geisha, Pursuit of Happyness and the dual Spider-Man 1 & 2 set (a GREAT deal at $6.99 for the two WS movies!).
Even though I knew better, I went to the bins in the center aisle to see if there were any there. No. So then I start the search through their racks--which (as usually seems to be the case) were in the state of being shifted around--stacks of disc on the floor and on carts everywhere!
First, I find the old release of The Patriot and figure it'll have to do. I then go the "S" section of "Action" and find none of the Spidey sets. I found one Memoirs of a Geisha in the drama section! Woohoo! I figure I'm doing well to go 2-for-4 (sort of). I am basically looking at EVERY DVD on the shelves because of their lack of organization.
I HAD FORGOTTEN HOW FRUSTRATING CC CAN BE! I hadn't been there in a long time.
On an endcap I find a hidden copy of The Patriot (new release)! This is like a treasure hunt! Then, I find--in the box set section--the two movie Spidey set!
I then have a slight panic because I'm not sure if the movie cash is supposed to be inside specially-marked copies of the movies. Turns out, no...the movie cash is at the register.
No Pursuit of Happyness copies to be found ANYWHERE.
But, I end up with three of the films and movie cash tickets of the four that my daughter wanted.
But it took probably the better part of an hour.
