    I apologize if there is already a list existing somewhere, but I would really like to compile a complete listing of all DVDs that are out of print that I can take with me shopping.

    "Abyss, The (2 Disc)"

    Just saw 12 copies of this at besy buy. They seem to hold onto big lots until they go OOP and then restock. At least that what they did for Dances With Wolves with the DTS. May be it's a coincidence.

    I see lots of the 2 disc Abyss sets around still as well as Independence Day. I remember reading that the Mummy Ultimate edition was as well, is this true?

    The original US DVD issue of (Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman, and Howe's) "ABWH - An Evening of Yes Music" has been OOP for some time and has been fetching $180 on eBay. It has apparently also been issued as an international Region 0 release, but I don't know how the quality is or if there are other differences.

    According to the Image Entertainment web site, there are 2336 oop DVD titles that they can show on 102 pages. I guess you could print them all but it would be time and paper consuming.

    Hard Boiled & The Killer (Winstar) are being replaced by Disney's dub-only butchered versions

    Weird Al: The Videos is not OOP, it just was switched from Snapper to keepcase packaging

    Mask (1985) (Image) - Another Image title licensed from Universal that is OOP.

    Rambling Rose - I believe the original Pioneer version is OOP and had been replaced by an inferior P&S version.
