    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).

    I may look into the HBO sale, but I'm not entirely sold on getting anything this week. I'm a little maxed out on movies right now.

    BTW, I pre-ordered Guys and Dolls and Von Ryan's Express weeks ago. Can't wait to see them both in Blu-ray.

    Especially the scene in G&D during Adelaide's Lament when Vivian Blaine opens her medicine cabinet. Love that shot.

    That is really funny about HD-DVD. Somewhere the wires got crossed between Amazon and the distributor because according to the website it's really just a plain old DVD:

    Mike, what's up with the HD DVD? They might as well put it out on Laserdisc, VHS, Beta, and VCD as well!
     
  11. Guest

    Thanks, Mark. I hadn't refreshed the page in time to see your post.

    Perhaps they can release 10 minutes of the film on Super 8. :) Seriously it was so cool having the Falcon vs Tie Fighters Scene as they fled the Death Star, the fight from Bambi, and Disney's Clock Cleaners on Super 8. Also I we had a clip from what I think was One Million BC. I remember seeing a person being smothered in lava.

    I'll have the review for The Muppet Christmas Carol up this evening. Several of those other Blus are on my docket for review but have not arrived.

    Can't wait to see Sunset Boulevard in high def. Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike!

    Sunset Boulevard and Patton NOW, Guys and Dolls and Von Ryan's Express in the near future.

    (The above setting of priorities was respectfully requested by my wallet.)
