    How often does this happen?!
    I found both "A.I. Artificial Intelligence" and "Say Anything" on the shelf a week before their 3/5 release! I was having a bad day, too -- so this was a welcome discovery. Don't want to get anyone in trouble, so let's just say I found them at a major electronics chain that's not Circuit City...(and they have a promo this week if you buy 3 DVDs, you get $5.00 off...") Thanks to whoever slipped up, and made my day.
    Both releases are fabulous "must haves". You've read Ron's Reviews so I don't need to elaborate as he's covered all the bases extremely well.
    Cold weather + warm fire + 2NewDVDs = cozy night![​IMG]

    Sounds good to me, but the question is... did you get next week's sale prices for them?

    No...paid the regular prices (less the $5.00 discount) BUT, I'll take next week's Circuit City Sunday ad (which is always cheaper than this store) back to the store on Tuesday, and they'll match CC's low price AND give me an additional 10%!!!!
    (This happened only once before a year ago, and they quickly refunded the difference without any complaint!) [​IMG]

    Wow, I never find them early here in Vancouver. And, I want all three titles mentioned. Damn, I guess I have to wait until next week.

    I ordered these two from a local "mom and pop" operation, and the owner said he could have them for me on Saturday. I hope so, because I'm really looking forward to both these discs.

    Circuit City will not street things early. We can't ring things up prior to street date...unless you want to pay $999.99 for them.

    Not much happening in your post there David [​IMG]
    I could have had these a good time befoe the street date, but had to wait for some other things to get in stock to save on shipping [​IMG]

    I too found Say Anything at said retailer earlier this week for $14.99, but there was no sign of A.I.. Much to my dismay, there was no sign of Glengarry Glen Ross or The Usual Suspects: SE, either. [​IMG]

    I jolted around town today to find A.I. myself. No luck. Guess us less fortunate have to wait until Tuesday.

    Incidentally, I asked the movie guy at Hastings if they just happened to be on the shelves at the moment. He said, no, and businesses actually have to pay serious fines if they get busted doing that. I told him, I understand, but I was going to try elsewhere to find it early anyway. He said, cool, if I find it, by all means, buy it, but be sure and call him, so he could report the guilty company. I can't decide if that comment upset me or not.

    So I just bought another Farscape instead.

    I went to all major retailers in my area Friday evening and none of them had A.I. and Say Anything out on the shelves. *sigh*. I really want these titles but I guess I'll have to wait 'till Tuesday. So much for the Laser's Edge. I was hoping they'd ship 'em early. Looks like I'm gonna try DVD Empire for the next batch of DVDs; they seem to ship stock as they get them rather than waiting for the street date.
