    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 think there's been a mistake. You included three images from "Jennifer's Body."

    Wow, short list. Nothing for me this week.

    I like the pictures of Jennifer's Body, but i have no interest in the film.

    Hope you guys had a safe, and Merry Christmas!

    Wow have Battlestar 2.0 and 2.5 been that low, ever?

    Looking forward to FINALLY picking them up!

    Looks like the new release BD prices are back up to pre-holiday levels. At least my wallet will get a break.

    Defintely Glee for me, but I am REALLY shocked that no retailer has any exclusive features available on it. But that's good! And a rental on Paranormal Activity.

    I noticed the verbage on limits at Target on the sale signs at my local store this past week.

    My daughter's been waiting for Glee, and 9 looks good, but ... does anyone know if Jennifer's Body is coming out?

    I'm assuming it will be out Tuesday since every Sunday ad has it listed.

    Or in my best Groucho Marx "It looks like it's coming out and aren't all the guys in the room 'excited about it!'"

    Didn't realize just how slow this week was until I checked out all the new releases available from Netflix...a whopping 21!

    Nothing for me this week.

    A Perfect Getaway was a cool little B-movie and eventhough Jennifer's Body was marketed as a horror movie, it's really a very black comedy. I think both are worthwhile rentals.

    Thanks for the prices, guys!

    9 and A Perfect Getaway are in the Netflix queue. I know I'll grab Blood Diamond, a title mysteriously missing from my collection. Thanks guys and happy new year!

    BTW, Target has other titles on sale that aren't in the ad. I picked up "Lie to Me" Season 1 for $19.99 last night, along with "The Big Bang Theory" S2 (which is in the ad) for $17. Hoping to find a copy of "House" S5 when I pick up "Glee" tomorrow.

    Thanks, as always, for the prices!
