    (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:

    Animated Family Favorites: An American tail, Balto, The Land Before Time.

    Chuck Jones Collection: Rikki Tikki Tavi, Mowgli’s Brothers, The White Seal.

    Coen Brothers Gift Set: Blood Simple, Raising Arizona, Miller’s Crossing, Barton Fink, Fargo.

    Jack Nicholson Collection: Chinatown, The Two Jakes.

    James Bond Ultimate Collector’s Set (42 discs): 21 James Bond movies from Dr. No to Casino Royale.

    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.


    The Specials

    **BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry is available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one!

    Not sure what’s going on with three titles this week. Some retailers are carrying prices for Gilligan’s Island: Complete Series, Kung Fu: Complete Series & Wonder Woman: Complete Series…but prices are so scattered and inconsistent I have decided to leave them off the pricing table. My guess is that they have been pushed back. If anyone knows for certain, report in! [​IMG]

    Carnivale on sale at Best Buy for $20 per season! Yes, an HBO series has been marked down, everyone in hell is using ice skates. Highly recommended.

    I'll complete Seinfeld this week unless the Target price is way out of line. I'm tempted to pick up the Pixar set for my niece and nephew for Christmas, but I'm not familar with what it contains. Ratatouille and Sicko are rentals.
    Wal-Mart has a bonus DVD with Ratatouille: "Cooking Fun For All Ages" which is produced by Food Network. Not sure if it's on all copies or its price.

    Thanks as usual.

    A pretty busy week with the usual caveats about upgrades:

    Chinatown
    Cosby Show
    Help!
    Pixar Shorts
    Ratatouille
    The Two Jakes
    Wings

    Another great job by Mike. I hadn't seen that Circuit City has Help for $15.99. I'll be able to save a couple of dollars, now.

    Quick Question...

    Where did you get the price for Ratatouille at Costco from? I looked on their website and couldn't fine it anywhere.

    Seinfeld S9 is a must--I honestly didn't think it was coming out until later in the month; I was going to wait to get it as a Christmas gift but I might as well pick it up now at Target (damn bonus disc...I don't even care that much about bloopers but I'm a completist).

    Might pick up Chinatown too depending on Target's price.

    Hey, Scooter! I didn't know you lurked about the RoundUp! Cool! [​IMG]

    Check out RIGHT HERE! Three rows down and on the right! [​IMG]

    EDIT**Wait just a gosh-darn minute! IF you are asking about the Ratatouille BD...I dunno where it went...but it WAS THERE! It's in my hand-written notes as I was researching this week's prices (in other words it is NOT just a cut-and-paste mistake from week-to-week). AND, I remember seeing it because that very item is on my horizon...and I remember thinking that was a pretty good price, but I have no Costcos near me (I have that conversation inside my head fairly often! [​IMG] ). Sorry. It WAS there. I'll leave the price figuring it was probably accurate.
