    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).

    Nice job, Adam. Get well, Mike! I've been dying to get Das Boot, but have been waiting for a price break on the 2-disc edition. Now I have a decision to make: Do I get the new single disc release which only contains the director's cut and commentary, or do I hold out for a better price on the 2 disc set which has both cuts of the film and all the documentaries? I can do without the theatrical cut, which I'd probably never watch anyway, but I hate to lose the documentaries. :huh:

    Thanks Mark. I have the same dilemma. I don't know if I will have time to watch the documentary. The $12.99 price is pretty tempting. I really want to pick up Drive, Shakespeare in Love and Mockingbird (basic edition). I'm waiting for Grand Canyon to drop to the $10 range to pick up. My twins really want Treasure Buddies, so some of my list may have to wait. The catalog releases have been killing me lately. There are so many and are priced pretty good. I just don't have the time to watch them all.

    Get well soon, Mike! You're my unofficial date every Saturday night around 9 pm!


    Only Next Gen on BD for me. I'll probably run through the three episodes on Tuesday night just to see what new details I can glean after all these years.

    Phantom 25th (at least according to Amazon) isn't out until February 7. Too bad, 'cause I really got excited when I saw it in the Round-Up!

    The back cover scans of the Starz/Anchor Bay (from Fox) titles (Grand Canyon, Monkeybone, The Scout) on DVD Empire's website show these are 1080i. Strange that the previous S/AB releases from Fox (Bad Girls, License to Drive, Project X) all say 1080p. Get well soon, Mike!

    Hm. I could have picked up The English Patient at my Best Buy when I was doing the BD trade up, as they apparently had the title out before street date. Oh well.


    The Conversation is a nice price.

    Not only that, but new releases "Shakespeare in Love" and "Cold Mountain" are $7.99 as well. That's my price-point so I'll have to pick up all three on Tuesday.

    I was lucky to get Patient when it was $9.99 on Amazon and Malcom X for $25 too. Although I am considering canceling X and waiting for a below $20

    These last two weeks are killing my wallet. I'm definitely picking up To Kill a Mockingbird and I still need to grab the Hitchcock's from last week. I'll probably get the Poirot's eventually and maybe the Transformers disc. There are others as well. Like I said, it's killing my wallet.

    I lucked out with a copy of English Patient priced at 9.99 and exchanged one of my BD trade ups from last week that I didn't remember has a crappy transfer (Out of Africa). My store also had the English Patient priced to be on sale at $11.99. Amazon has also lowered their price to $12.99.

    It appears that Magnificent Ambersons was quietly released on DVD yesterday. Amazon has it for $10.99.
