Default Anyone having trouble finding some bluray discs?

Its been almost one week since Rob Zombie's Halloween and Sweeney Todd came out but not one store (Best Buy, Circuit City, FYE. etc..) has these movies on Blu-ray. I ask someone who works in the store and I just get the same response "That's weird its in the computer but not here, hmmm"

I still have not seen Dark City or Texas Chainsaw Massacre in stores yet. I'm just wondering is Blu-Ray simply not big enough for store to get more shipments?

Does everyone just order blu-rays online? if so whats the best place to do so?

No problems here. Chalk it up to poor merchandising practices of some retailers; they'll get it, but a bit later.

If I don't feel like hopping from one store to another, I usually resort to Amazon. Sure, I'll have to wait a bit for the movies to arrive, but they always have stock.

I saw Sweeney Todd at Best Buy, Blockbuster and Target this week. (Target has it on sale as of Yesterday for $27.99, which is lower than usual for them.)

I was looking at Fry's for Sweeny Todd and they couldn't find the 16 copies. I'll have to stop by Target and pick one up.

Dude, that movie only came out last Tuesday, and seeing as how you got it Saturday (and I'm assuming didn't pay for faster shipping) in no way does that mean Amazon sucks. You either have unrealistic expectations, or don't understand what a "pre-order" is.

Well if he has Amazon prime then it would suck. For example, I ordered the Descent and it was "In Stock" and its taking 5 days for a 2-day shipping to get to me.
