I went to Best Buy yesterday and picked up all 4 of the Miyazaki releases. I asked if I could open up the discs to get the $2 coupon and they let me use one of those, but not two of them. There was no apparent rebate offer as far as I could see. Still, full cost including tax was less than $59 for 4 DVDs, so I am pleased.

The only place I've seen the new Ran is at Virgin Megastore, which of course is priced very high. BB and CC and all others are failing me.

Kirk,

When you have a title like this (Ran Masterworks Edition) coming out, its going to be hit or miss when it comes to the B&M's. If I kept track of all the times I went looking for a NON-Mainstream title on release date in my area I would have a failure rate of at least 85%. The main problem I have with dealing with B&M's is that they treat titles like this as something that is only a collector's title and not appealing to the Joe 6 pack crowd. Unless it's a major title like "Harry Pothead & the Stoned Sorcerer" that sells millions of copies, they don't want to deal with it. Thats why when it comes to NON-mainstream titles it's better to order from a good on line e-tailer. That way you get it delivered to your house without having to jack-ass all over the place only to be disappointed at the end of the day. I do all of my on line ordering from www.dvdplanet.com. I ordered "Ran" on Tuesday afternoon and received it yesterday(Saturday).

Joe

p.s.--Sorry to the few of us here that work at those B&M's if I sounded a little harsh;)
