    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.

    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, PLEASE 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, Circuit City is still out of business...even in Hawaii (where they NEVER guaranteed their prices anyway).

    The Specials

    Seems like a good price for Lost S5 on BD.

    Thanks guys...

    Looks like all the BLU deals are gone..

    I'm only interested in "the hurt locker" Blu ray but not willing to pay 24.99 for it, even the SD-DVD version is overpriced.. maybe later down the road....

    As badly as I want Moon, I'm not willing to pay $26 for any Bluray. That sort of eliminates my planned blind-buy of The Hurt Locker, too. I don't know what the studios are thinking, it's almost like they don't want me to buy their product.

    For sure Lost S5 on BD. That's just a stupid price for The Simpsons when you know it'll be down to $20 in 6-8 weeks, just like all the other seasons. A lot of other stuff is in the Netflix queue, though.

    Oh, and I can recommend The Appeared. Pretty good little thriller. Goliath is just alright. I haven't had a chance to watch Superheroes or Breaking Point yet. What else? Fame and Halloween II are two different kinds of terrible. And I really liked Patton Oswalt in Big Fan.

    Thanks, as always, guys.

    I have Cast Away, and Death Race on Blu coming from Amazon. They are right at the same sale price showing above. I just need to pull my disc 2 from my Cast Away DVD, put it in a 2 disc Blu-ray case, and i am good!

    I also have to do Cliffhanger.

    Finally, id blind buy Moon, but not for $25. A rental will have to do for now.

    Thanks as always guys.

    Definitely Lost S5 for $19.99. I can't recall when Lost seasons were that cheap, let alone a very recently released season.

    Does Best Buy do price matching on their own stuff after the fact? I paid $56.99 for Lost S5 a couple weeks ago. Would they credit me the difference?

    Thanks as always, Mike and Pat!

    I'm pretty sure they will. If it's the same product, then they should have a 30 day price guarantee OR everyone would just buy the new set and return it unopened with the old receipt for the same result.

    I'll be picking up The Simpsons: Season Twenty Blu-ray.

    Thanks for the prices, guys! [/url]

    That's just a stupid price for The Simpsons when you know it'll be down to $20 in 6-8 weeks, just like all the other seasons. I think that may be true for the DVD but the Blu-ray probably won't be under $30 so I'm not waiting in the hopes of saving $7.

    >> paid $56.99 for Lost S5 a couple weeks ago.
    Wow, how'd you miss the first-week sale on it? Much more reasonable price, and BB had a bonus disc, an extra slip cover, and a Dharma luggage tag with it...

    Well I picked up the season today at BB and the regular sticker price is $49.99 (on sale for $19.99) - the $56 seems really high

    I was planning on blind buys for Hurt Locker and Moon, but not at 25 bucks a pop.These pre-holiday prices are a real bummer.

    Man, Moon was my favorite movie of 2009 but I won't pay that for it when I know it will be in bargain levels in mere weeks...
