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

    (MoH) before a title = New release in the Masters of Horror Collection.

    Individual titles included in box sets listed above:

    Elvis – Blue Suede Collection: Jailhouse Rock, Viva Las Vegas, It Happened at the World’s Fair, Kissin’ Cousins, Girl Happy, Live a Little Love a Little, That’s the Way it Is, This is Elvis..

    Elvis Collection: I cannot find a listing of the titles in this box.

    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.

    "LP" in the RoundUp table means a store’s Sunday flyer says "Low Price". That means I could not locate a definite price for the item, and the ad is all I have to go on. Retailers use these phrases in advertisements so that they do not violate MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) agreements with the studios. Doing so can cost them thousands or even millions of dollars in co-op advertising funds.

    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, 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, as always, Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

    Paprika on Blu-ray for me. That's going to be absolutely stunning. Bender's Big Score on regular DVD.

    And boo to Fox for not putting Waitress out in HD. Money staying in my pocket.

    Just 'Omega Man' on Blu-ray for me...although that Ultimate Matrix HD set is tempting at $80.

    EDIT: after taking a peek on ebay and seeing that the Matrix can be had for about $20-30 less, I think I'll just stick with Omega Man. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the round-up.

    Will be picking up The Waitress. That's the best movie my wife and I saw all this year. It did very well in limited theatrical release and I hope it finds its audience on home video. In my opinion, it's hard not to fall in love with this movie. Andy Griffith shines in his supporting role and the leads are all delightful.

    FWIW, I was going to be out anyway, so dropped by the local Best Buy as the doors opened to pick up the 2 disc Pan's Labyrinth. They had all of 1 copy in stock, and it rang up at $24.99. No problem getting the price corrected, but then I noticed the clerk actually tore off the Golden Compass portion for whatever their offer is off the ticket and kept it.

    All I know is there was more to the receipt than what I got. He tore a large section off the top of the receipt. It wasn't until later I realized I was supposed to get a ticket to The Golden Compass with the purchase. Since I was the second person to even make a purchase in the store today, I doubt they ran out. If I go back to get my ticket, I expect I will receive the standard blank stare and made up reasons I don't get it.

    The tickets are inside the case, which is where mine was.
    The 2 disk edition cases were all stickered and had a new SKU stuck on the back to indicate it.

    Possibly Waitress, but nothing more than likely. Between the Deep Discount sale, starting Christmas shopping and next week's Battestar Bonanza, I need to start counting my pennies.

    I'll be celebrating the second World Series title in 4 years by the World Champion Boston Red Sox by picking up the DVD.
