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

    Individual Titles in the Collections Listed Above:

    Great Italian Directors Collection (DVD): Boccaccio '70, Casanova '70, Story of a Love Affair.

    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).

    Last Exit to Brooklyn on BLU will do it for me this week. Maybe I should watch my well-hoarded laser disc one last time. Took me forever to score that sucker at a decent price.

    The Four Feathers is the 1939 version that Criterion is releasing on Blu-ray and DVD this week, not the 2002 version, though it sure would be nice if that one were to come out on Blu-ray sometime!

    Thanks Mike!


    And that is my purchase of the week. I can finally retire my LD!

    Doesn't Casper the Friendly Ghost: The Complete Collection come out on dvd this week? All 81 of Casper's cartoons are in the set, including his original television series (and one short never before released on home video) and extras. I'm very excited about it, as I've heard from someone involved in the set that it looks and sounds great!

    Thanks as always for the list, Mike. I'll have a long list of reviews coming over the next few days: The Four Feathers (later today) and then Terri, The Tree of Life, Chuck - Season Four, The Bad Seed, Bones - Season 6. Sometimes these titles arrive all at the same time which makes getting the reviews out in a timely manner a trick.

    After spending a fair amount of money in the last month, I'm happy to say that there's nothing for me this week. Thanks for the prices though! :)

    I didn't realize Green Lantern was this week. Okay, that should be it for the week.


    Hopefully.

    Just Casper for me. I have some stuff pre-ordered for next month, though...looks like another expensive month coming up!

    And that link has now been added!

    And Mike needs to run off and find out what Matt thought of that rather unusual film.
