If you'll give Hollywood the benefit of the doubt for even a second, you can't blame them for starting disc prices high, in attempt to figure out what the market will bar...

As a rush of items hit Tabula Rasa's new Military Surplus over the last couple days, things have been pretty chaotic, to say the least.

That's the way it seems, at least on some movies. While the price drop is not supposed to take effect until the 8th, over the last week sharp-eyed buyers have seen prices drop on such titles as Pitch Black & Serenity from $23.95 on Amazon to $19.95, and also reports of Best Buy prices going down...
