Marketplace rental prices at INSANE!!?

 I don't rent many movies using XBOX Live Marketplace, namely because they have always been a little pricey, however I just went to rent a new release and they wanted 1000 points for it!?  What!?  Then I checked a couple of newer ones and they were about 2000 points!!!  Did I miss something?  Have points gotten cheaper, or are these movies unreasonable?  Last time I checked, 1400 Live points from Future Shop costs $19.99.  That's ~ $0.014 cents per point.  So a movie that costs 2000 points is actually costing me over $28 to rent!!!?  WTF?

I must be MISSING something, please fill me in!?

Hey there Man! The prices are set by the publishers of the individual films. Maybe you could check out Netflix or Hulu to see if the films you want are available there? I hope this helps, thanks!
