    Patrick:

    I can help you with those question marks on the BB $4.99 titles:

    Lawrence of Arabia, Field of Dreams, Without a Paddle, Van Wilder.

    The ad says: Pick up these and lots more in store or at BestBuy.com.

    The mysterious $8.99 (DVD)/$14.99 (Blu-ray) title--already listed in the OP--is: Notorious.

    For what it is worth, I bought Angel Heart, Air America (both due out on Tuesday) as well as Red Heat on BD for $7.99 each at my local (and favorite) warehouse store. The one not owned by Walmart. If you happen to be going there anyway this weekend it may be worthwhile to take your over sized cart down the movie aisle.

    Anyone that's interested in either set Std or BR, it's available on Amazon's Deal of the Day Sun 11/22 here[​IMG] . I think I'll have to finally pull the trigger on this one today. (Std set)

    Std set : $28.99 ~59% off

    BR: $40.99

    I'll be getting Funny People and My Bloody Valentine on Blu-ray and Alfred Hitchcock Presents: Season Four on DVD this week. I was going to wait on The Sopranos: Season One Blu-ray but $37 is pretty tempting to me.

    Thanks for the prices, guys!

    Aside from Superman: The Complete Animated Series, there's not a single new release I'm interested in this week. Which is good, since a rare Sunday outing yielded Forrest Gump, Drag Me to Hell, A Time to Kill, Australia and Valkyrie. I put Sunshine Cleaning back just so I could I was being "good."

    Happy Thanksgiving all, since the next Round-Up is prolly gonna be after Turkey Day! (Unless Mike has plans to do a Black Friday edition...?)

    I'm not sure about Best Buy, but Target's ad runs Sun-Wed ONLY, with a new two day ad for Black Friday.

    Not sure what the big secret is, but that leaves either Costco or BJ's.

    Chris S just posted in the Black Friday ad that Amazon has just posted a schedule of Movies & TV software that they're going to be discounting--all week long. CHECK IT OUT!

    I think it's more of a breaking Release date which isn't supposed to happen. OTOH, I happened to be looking at some Kirkland Brand stuff today at one of those stores and ran across those same Blu Rays plus several other older BR for cheap -- Ind. Day for 12.99, Mr and Mrs Smith for 12.99, Reservoir Dogs for 7.99 (along with at least 10 others I can't remember names), Wedding Crashers for 8.99.

    The Blu Rays I bought are listed on the receipt as BD/BLKFRIDAY instead of by name.



    The store starts with C

    I'm surprised. I've occasionally come across DVDs at Costco that were put out early, but usually, they won't ring up until street date.

    Does anyone know if the Target exclusive for 'Angels & Demons' includes the extended version of the film on Blu and regular DVD?

    The Target version:

    Blu has the 138 minute theatrical and 146 min extended editions.

    The included DVD only has the theatrical edition of the film.
