On Rick's comment about pricing of DVD vs. video-- Rick Anderson said responding to me my comments: > I'm sure we've all noticed that > while DVD's of feature films cost significantly less to the purchaser than > video tapes, Huh? Time to change stores, I think. VHS tapes typically list for $5-$10 less than their DVD counterparts. Click over to Amazon and check the prices on, say, Moulin Rouge ($15 on VHS, $30 on DVD) or the Phantom Menace ($20 on VHS, $30 on DVD) Here's new releases From this week's USA Today reviews: The Deep End (; 2001, Fox, rated R, $105 range; DVD, $30 Actual Prices on Amazon.com $107.99 for vhs, $23.99 DVD. The Man Who Wasn't There (; 2001, USA, rated R, $105 range; DVD, $27) (ranked 33 in sales on Amazon: VHS$55.99; DVD$20.24) Black Knight (; 2001, Fox, rated PG-13; $105 range; DVD, $27 and under): Amazon: DVD $21.49 VHS$110.99 Domestic Disturbance (2001, Paramount, rated PG-13; $105 range; DVD, $30) Amazon $106.99 VH; DVD $22.49 (sales rank 22) On new releases. looks like DVD is much less expensive than video.
