    Try to search for it at DVDPricesearch.com. If the status says discontinued and you can't find it anywhere except ebay, it's most likely OOP.

    Better suggestion: go to Image Entertainment's website and click on "ADVANCED SEARCH". On the upper left of the form it takes you to is a field called "status", which defaults to "active". Change it to "all" and look up your title.
    Since these guys are wholesalers of DVDs, they pretty much list everything ever released and this method can tell you what the current status of any title is. If it says "discontinued", then the title is OOP or On Moratorium (which essentially means "temporarily OOP").

    beware when you see something listed as OOP on ebay. Some sellers like to put that beside almost any DVD whether it really is out of print or not. So be sure to check before you bid [​IMG]

    Original Aspect Ratio: Having respect for the original shape of the theatrical presentation of a film. In other words: OAR means presenting the film including the entire picture the director intended you to see. The Home Theater Forum is officially PRO-OAR.
    See the "FAQ AND PRIMER" link in my signature, where this (and probably many others you wonder about) are explained.
    OAR is explained in this post specifically:

    "OOP" may mean out of print but does not always mean not available. I was able to pick up Criterions "Robocop" and "The Unbearable Lightness of Being" from Amazon only two months ago and the former has been listed as OOP for quite a while. Maybe they found some buried in the back of a warehouse. So, always look around. Go to B&Ms in which DVDs are not sold in large quantities or charge close to MRSP such as Borders and you might just find an OOP title you are looking for.

    OOP could mean Out of Production or when one made a mistake
    and exclaimed 'OOP'
    OAR means Original Aspect Ratio or a an instrument to paddle
