    Alright, HMV has a sale on which seems to be pretty decent. 2 DVD's for $40 bucks. Not bad when you ocnsider some of the selections that are on sale. I'm curious after seeing this "Movie - P2/Rush Hour/Wds/Dts/Dd" what the P2 means at the beginning? There are also similar titles with P3 and P4 in the title. Is this some kind of different release I'm not aware of? Here's the details of one particular title in the sale. Thanks for any input you might have.

    Paul, HMV uses P2 to mean Part 2, as these are the specs for Rush Hour 2.

    Hope that was helpful!

    Alright, thanks.... I'm an idiot....

    I just couldn't figure out why "P2" would determine alphabetical listing. Just strange. The others also follow suit. There's a Lethal Weapon, a Superman, Terminator which I never noticed, Austin Powers, and Dr. Doolittle.
