    Individual titles included in box sets listed above:

    The Peckinpah Collection: Ride the High Country, The Wild Bunch, The Ballad of Cable Hogue, Pat Garret & Billy the Kid.

    The Samuel L. Jackson Ultimate Collection: Rules of Engagement, Coach Carter, Shaft.

    The Wild Things Collection: Wild Things, Wild Things 2, Wild Things 3.

    The Disclaimer Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed Sunday advertisements. All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price.

    "LP" in the RoundUp table means a store’s Sunday flyer says "Low Price". That means I could not locate a definite price for the item, and the ad is all I have to go on. Retailers use these phrases in advertisements so that they do not violate MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) agreements with the studios. Doing so can cost them thousands or even millions of dollars in co-op advertising funds.

    I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week in the RoundUp. The titles included are those that I am interested in...as well as those which I consider will be of interest to a majority of consumers (and sometimes I’ll miss one!). I don't get paid for this, and I don't have the time to list every DVD. So, please don't complain! If there is a title not included in the RoundUp that you want to see, just look it up yourself, and be nice enough to post and share the results with everyone!

    Note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the RoundUp. They set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is no way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. And, as always, Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.


    The Specials

    **BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! The Constant Gardener AND The Five Heartbeats: Anniv. Edition AND Red Eye AND Transporter 2 are ALL available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one(s) ! Also, note that Dirty Deeds is also being released in rated and non-rated versions…get the one that’s right for you!

    --Some stores may be advertising new releases of Dead Poets Society and Good Morning Vietnam for this week. I think they are listed in the Best Buy flyer (among other places). However, the release dates for both those titles is actually January 17 (although some lists have them as January 10). Confusion reigns. Don’t be surprised if your local stores have them…or don’t have them out for sale! [​IMG] BB & CC are also advertising an SE of Big Momma’s House which is supposed to have movie cash to see Big Momma’s House 2 in the theater. But I don’t think that title is actually released this week either. In fact, I cannot find a release date for an SE of Big Momma’s House anywhere. Big Momma’s House 2 hits theaters January 27.

    --For some reason I could not get my Best Buy flyer early this week. So I am working off various internet sources for the following information.

    --Best Buy, this week, is advertising a FREE DVD with the purchase of Hustle and Flow ($17.99). Choose from Harlem Nights, Shaft (year?), Beverly Hills Cop or Beverly Hills Cop 2. Get one of those DVDs FREE with the purchase of Hustle and Flow on DVD.

    --Best Buy is offering a FREE Comic Book with the purchase of The Flash: Complete Series at their stores. ALSO, Best Buy Reward Zone Program Members gets a $5 discount and can purchase The Flash: Complete Series for just $34.99!

    --Best Buy is advertising $10 in movie cash with the purchase of the new Underworld LE. The $10 can be used to see Underworld Evolution. I do NOT know if this is a Best Buy exclusive or not.

    --Circuit City is offering a FREE BONUS DISC with its copies of Underworld LE. The disc includes sneak peeks from the new comic book and new movie Underworld Evolution.

    --Circuit City also has a FREE BONUS DISC with its copies of Transporter 2. Includes 20 minutes of extended version of “Transporter 2” featurette. Includes extended fight scenes. In-store only. While supplies last. Minimum 10 per store.

    --Circuit City advertises that copies of The Five Heartbeats includes “a bonus soundtrack”. I’m going to guess all copies of the film will, as nowhere does CC use the word “exclusive” nor have they listed any restrictions—such as a limited quantity.

    --Circuit City has also included this week’s new release of The Return of the Pink Panther in its 2/$15 sale.

    --Target is offering one of its FREE $5 GiftCards with the purchase of Viva La Bam: Seasons 4 & 5. No rain checks.

    Thanks Mike & Patrick. I'll definitely be picking up Red Eye & Ferris Bueller while hoping CC puts out Good Morning Vietnam & Dead Poets Society too. I'm on the fence on The Flash: Complete Series.

    I will be picking up Eraserhead and possibly The Flash. Mike, is the version of Return of the Pink Panther you listed in CC's 2 for $15 offer the new remastered disc that arrives on Tuesday? If so, I will pick that up, too. Thanks for the roundup, Mike and Patrick!

    This is a big week for me: Transporter 2, Eraserhead AND Ferris Bueller. And, I’m sure someday I’ll end up picking up The Wild Bunch, Cabin in the Sky and Stormy Weather.

    Thanks, but nothing for this week. I don't think I've bought a single DVD for myself since the first week of December. Yay! [​IMG]

    So what is Best Buy's price adjustment policy? I picked up Seinfeld S5 and S6 at the 39.99 price for the B1G1 last week.

    Big Momma’s House SE Is the same one that's been out for years they just added a slipcover and the moviecash ALSO it's not a new release I saw it in Best Buy last week. That's why there wasn't a release date.

    Supposively not all those SONY sets are lower this week. Only one set from each of the shows is going to be lower than last week. Not sure if that is for all the SONY shows, though.

    Check for yourself on BB.com
