I recently (about two weeks ago) purchased two copies each of Criterion's Silence of the Lambs and Robocop. I intend to use one of each for viewing and keep one of each sealed for possible sale in the future--definitely a speculative investment. I picked up both copies of Silence at an FYE store in a Pennsylvania mall and both Robocops at a Suncoast Video in a New Jersey mall. I paid list price for all of them (approximately $42 each including tax). I would welcome any opinions on the following related questions: To what extent are these out of print DVDs scarce/rare at this point? Based upon my experience browsing the mall stores, I found that the Silence of the Lambs DVDs were more difficult to find than the Robocops. Do you think this was a decent medium-term or long-term investment? (I am sure it wasn't a good short-term investment in any case!). Best Regards, Tom P.S. Thanks to postings in this forum, I recently started using the DVD Profiler software. What a wonderfully efficient and easy-to-use piece of software it is. Thanks for the heads-up. Before discovering DVD Profiler, I was using Pumpkin MovieBrain--which I found to be terribly cumbersome and bug-ridden in its current 3.0 version.
