That is strange, particularly given one of the selling points is you don't have to wait 28 days like Netflix or Redbox...

I believe that some titles like NOAH, BEOWULF, SEVENTH SON, etc. are priced higher because they are not available in the US. So the company would have to import them from Italy (or wherever) at higher costs (including shipping). Given that, I expect those to cost more to rent. (It IS a business, after all.) I do wish they carried BOOGIE, but that is the only import title I miss. I'm actually quite content that I can see those movies without the hassle/cost of buying the imports.

I think folks should also keep in mind that everyone wants to see the new releases first, so those can be on a WAIT status. But the rental price drops after demand subsides, going down to about $4.99 - $5.99. And of course, the wait times are shorter at that point. It's just the whole supply-and-demand thing, that's all. Doesn't anyone else remember the days when Netflix subscribers would be screaming about new releases always being on a long-wait status, and that sometimes it would take months for a new release sitting in their queue to be shipped!? There were even a few times that a movie would hit cable and NF still hadn't shipped me one. I've never had to wait that long for a 3DBR title.
