Called it lol.

Cheaper BDs - Sales are plummeting
More expensive BDs - BD not being adopted as fast

I agree with the second one.

LMAO!

You convinently setup your own "list" and then proclaim; See! I am right!"

BTW - you have them chronologically out of order - imagine that.

Tower, I don't know where you research pricing but here is an excellent site for reviews and pricing (they always provide best prices and deals)

That is unusual to have a new release catalog marked down so much. Normally the cheap catalogs are those that have been out for quite a while or those released by third party distributors like Echo Bridge or Mill Creek.

It seems that the studios are wholesale pricing catalog more aggressively (that MSRP doesn't really mean squat) in order to attract more consumers to Blu-ray. It's a normal reaction to falling sales, lowering prices to bring in more of the market.

Congrats! Crazy that a new to Bluray title would go straight to the bargin bin! Great deal for you! Still shocking to see this so cheap already. I mean it is shocking and it isn't. I shouldn't be shocked because I know catalog doesn't sell well on Bluray. So retailers have to price it accordingly. But straight to bargin bin prices is still a bit of a shock I guess.

It's already back ordered 10-13 days. Does this movie come in the Forever Marilyn box set? Does anyone know if all the films in the box they are available separately?

It looks like they are all available separately, and yes that movie is in the box set. I wouldn't mind having that boxset once it gets under $40-$50 or so

There's also the camel sites (camelcamelcamel) which tracks amazon, newegg and best buy prices. Camel3x does Amazon, Camelegg is newegg and camelbuy is best buy.

Youre completely right. 7 Year Itch is selling terribly while How to marry a Millionaire must be selling phenomenally since its priced at $19. Thats some rock solid logic you got there.

$10 new catalogs would have been great news, but alas this looks to be a common retailers trick of pricing one item really low in an effort get the consumer to buy more items in the set at ridiculous prices. Certainly makes the boxset look alot more appealing.
You see this all the time especially when electronics stores put speakers on sale.. while the matching speakers are overpriced.

But dont let reason get in your way.
