    Standard disclaimer:All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from theirprinted Sunday advertisements. All prices are subject to change by eachchain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the websiteprice.

    I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week inthe RoundUp.The titles included are those that I am interested in...as well asthose 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'tcomplain! If there is a title not includedin the RoundUp that youwant to see, PLEASE just look it up yourself, and be nice enough topost 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, sothere is no way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR localWal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. And, Circuit City is still outof business...even in Hawaii (where they NEVER guaranteed their pricesanyway).

    I've got Monster's U coming from Amazon for a really early preorder price of $29.99. And if that Cars 3D price at BB is right, I may be grabbing that on Tuesday, too.

    Ordered the Nightmare on Elm Street set tonight for $26...and I need to stop spending money, considering we're on vacation right now...

    It's not right. It's a typo. Best Buy will have the Cars 3-D release for $29.99.

    I also forgot to include a link to Matt's review of Cars 3-D in the OP. HERE it is.

    Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike, and the links to the reviews. This is one of those really rare weeks when I don't have any of this week's other releases to review. All of the review materials I have here are for November releases.


    By the way, not to nitpick, but that's Monica Vitti in the picture above for La Notte.

    Thanks for the roundup Mike! Just another small things - you have it worded 2 ways on the Clair film (Beauty and the Devil / Beauty or the Devil) - not sure which is correct...

    The Walmart flyer in my local paper this week shows Monsters University combo pack for $19.96. Not sure if that's a nationwide sale price. If it is, I presume Amazon will match it before Tuesday.

    Disney Store has a deal for Monsters U where you get a set of lithographs plus a $10/ $20 off future purchase coupon, same as they often have. It's $30 and doesn't appear to be the 3D version online, although when I used to get them in store, they were the 3D sets. My guess is that the 3D version would be $35, but I recommend calling your local store to check if you're interested (they may also be out of lithographs at this point).

    Sadly, my kid has outgrown most of the stuff in the store, so the coupon isn't so useful to me anymore.

    I'll probably pick it up on Black Friday. I think I paid $15 for Brave at Target last year. Which, come to think of it, I STILL haven't watched!

    What is Disney thinking with its recent new release pricing structure? We are inching closer to what we were paying for new release laser discs it seems.

    Monster's U made it into my hot hands tonight. Too bad we won't be watching it until, at the very earliest, this weekend. Jim still hasn't seen the first one...
