    (CC) after a title = New release in the Criterion Collection.

    Individual titles included in box sets listed above:

    Kurosawa Post War Box Set: Record of Living Being, Idiot, Scandal, No Regrets for Our Youth.

    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.

    **BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! Good Luck Chuck (Theatrical) AND Good Luck Chuck (Unrated) are available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the right one(s)! That means there are four different versions of Good Luck Chuck from which to choose. [​IMG]

    Thanks as usual.

    Definitely:
    Rockford season 5

    Possible upgrades:
    An Affair to Remember
    In the Heat of the Night
    When Harry Met Sally

    My upgrading a dvd (as opposed to blu-ray) is a hell of a lot less likely these days, and I'd have to be convinced of very strong picture quality improvement, but these are the candidates.

    Thanks, Mike and Patrick.

    Just the Extras Complete Series set this week. It's a blind buy but I've heard a lot of good things about the show.

    Thanks guys! I'll be double-dipping Earth vs. the Flying Saucers and It Came from Beneath the Sea. I kind of wish these were available at a better price, but, when you have to have it... you have to have it! [​IMG]

    Another week, another lack of purchases. But if my financial aid comes in and after I pay off my classes, I might be getting a HD-TV, but I probably wait to get Blu-Ray, as the prices titles are a bit high at the moment.

    Mike, you couldn't find a better picture to spotlight Good Luck, Chuck? [​IMG]

    This movie was slaughtered by the critics, but I'm curious if its even worth it just for Jessica Alba. Heck, for her I even sat through Honey!

    I'll be picking up:

    Family Guy: Blue Harvest (I'm not a fan of FG but as a Star Wars fan, I have to say that they did a very good job with the parody)

    And if anyone is buying the Extras series set just for the Special, it is going to be released on its own on February 26 so I'll be waiting until then.

    Extras (US - DVD R1) in News > Releases at DVDActive

    Thanks for the prices, guys! [​IMG]
