    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



    --This is "the week that wasn't" for fans of The Fugitive. November 1st was supposed to be the release date for the release of a complete series set of the 1960s classic. But, at the last minute, the set was held (for reasons currently unknown)...except for some that made their way out Amazon's door. Read all about it HERE.



    --Best Buy also has two titles in their flyer which, I believe, have been pushed back a week or two on their release date: Beginners (November 15th) and the Devil's Double (November 22nd). They are advertising Beginners at $16.99 DVD/$19.99 Blu and Devil's Double at $16.99 DVD/$22.99 Blu.

    Thanks Mike! Copland, Cars 2 and Crazy, Stupid Love. Speaking of crazy, I picked up Quigley Down Under and Big Country a few months ago when they were Walmart exclusives for $10 each. Makes me wonder what the point of having an exclusive is when you are selling it cheaper.....not that I'm complaining

    Thanks as always for the Roundup, Mike.


    I reviewed Quigley and Big Country back in the spring when they were Wal-Mart exclusives, so those reviews can be added to the chart.


    The Big Country can be found here.


    Quigley Down Under can be found here.


    I'll have Snow Flower and the Secret Fan review up tomorrow evening.

    Trainspotting for $6.99 is a pretty sick price. And I have a $5 BB Reward Zone coupon burning a hole in my pocket. :)

    I had Cars 2 3-D on amazon that was $27, but I see that BB has it for $25 - the Disney $5 - a $5 reward zone coupon down to $15. So that works.

    Some nice deals this week. I guess that signals the beginning of the holiday season when I wind up spending more than I planned...

    I didn't see it in the round up but the Tom Cruise Blu-Ray Collection comes out Nov 1 and my review for it can be found here.


    5 good to great film's of his for just $35 and change from Amazon is a terrific deal. Note that not all of the special features are included, but on most films they are all there.

    BN Criterion 50% off sale going to take most of my $$$ for the next couple weeks, but Cars 2 almost certainly soon and Water for Elephants sometime before Christmas Chuck Barris is already on it's way from Deep Discount though that could be tomorrow or next month sometime since the package apparently has already made a couple detours. It must be trying to shake the tail MI6 has placed on all the shipments.

    Thanks for another WRU, Mike.



    Looks like things may be picking up from here on out thru the end of the year -- and our wallets will be taking some big hits.


    I too will probably be giving priority to the B&N Criterion sale -- and I won't have nearly enough CC rewards funded GCs to pay for them this time around. Will probably pick up the Cars 2 BD in some release week deal, perhaps from TRU if their pre-deals price is competitive.


    FWIW, the Hook BD came out in the UK about a month ago -- and I already imported it (for a shipped cost of ~$10-11) along w/ a batch others.

    Hmmm, Amazon was listing the release date as 11/1 as of Sunday in line with the press release info...odd.


    Well, this way your record remains firmly intact :)

    Amazon has dropped the price of A Christmas Carol (BD) to $10.99! (SD is $9.99.) However, they say the BD edition "usually ships in 1 to 3 months." Very strange.
