    Titles included in collections in the above grid:

    The Buster Keaton Collection: The Cameraman, Spite Marriage, Free and Easy, So Funny It Hurts, Buster Keaton at MGM.

    Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed advertisements, the Sunday of the week of release (so as to catch any week-of-release sale prices). All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price. If a price is marked "$_N/A_" in the grid, it means that this title is not shown as available on that chain's website or perhaps in their ads...but it COULD still be in-stores!

    $_"LP" means the advertisement says "Low Price", and $_"HP" means the advertisement says "Hot Price". Use of either of these in the Roundup grid indicates that 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 only include the titles I feel like including (or the ones Dave tells me he's looking for ;o)). In fact, the titles are pretty much the ones I'm personally interested in, with few exceptions. I don't get paid for this, and I don't have time to devote to doing 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...like Dave & I do!

    Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii. Also note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the standard Roundup: they set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is not a way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. When it comes to Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices mentioned at all, just remember that "Your Mileage May Vary".


    **BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! The Bourne Supremacy AND DodgeBall are BOTH available in OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one. Also, Species III AND The Last Horror Movie are BOTH available in Unrated and R-rated versions. Get the one that’s right for you. [​IMG]

    --Amazon is still featuring free shipping on orders over $25. Restrictions apply.

    --Best Buy is having a great offer in connection with The Bourne Supremacy! Buy The Bourne Supremacy ($14.99) and “take 10% off any regularly priced DVD instantly. In store only.” Caution: Markdowns taken from regular prices.

    --Best Buy also has its regular bonus on-pack disc on Season 6 of Star Trek Voyager. “Star Mapping The Final Frontier. Minimum 10 per store. No rainchecks.

    --Best Buy is also offering a bonus disc if you buy The Ultimate Matrix Collection or TUMC LE from them. The disc includes a sneak peek at Constantine starring Keanu Reeves. It includes behind-the-scenes footage and actor interviews.

    --And, Best Buy is offering an exclusive FREE headband with the purchase of the DodgeBall DVD. The headband, which features the DodgeBall logo, is on-pack. Minimum 250 per store. No rainchecks.

    --Circuit City has a deal on season sets of 24. Buy 24: Season 3 ($44.99) and any other season of 24 and save $10.

    --Circuit City is also advertising a free ticket to the Adam Sandler movie Spanglish with the purchase of a two-pack DVD set ($19.99) of 50 First Dates and Mr. Deeds. It is not clear if this is a CC exclusive.

    --Target is offering a two-hour shopping event at all its stores on Tuesday, December 7 from 8am to 10am which will offer “personal shopping assistance” for those doing holiday shopping. Plus, seniors (65 or older) and guests with disabilities will receive 10% off all holiday purchases (and free gift wrapping). Maybe Grandma could help you score The Bourne Supremacy for $13.49!

    Thanks Mike! Awesome job.

    The collector in me really wants to get the limited Matrix set, but for only an additional statue and book the price jump from the "regular" set to the "limited" one is a bit steep. Does anybody know what wxactly is in the book? Is it just pictures, or is it actually full of useful information???

    I would get the Matrix, but considering my brother is bound to get it this week AND I only have fourty dollars...I will just pass now. Instead I will get Gargoyles first season and maybe Dodgeball. Thanks for the roundup Mike.

    Between this week and next week my wife may finally break down and kill me.
    -24
    -Bourne Supremecy
    -Crusade
    -Flintstones
    -Voyager (for her)
    -Pluto and MM BW2 treasures (just can't justify mouse club)

    Is the Simon and Garfunkle dvd from their recent tours? I may have to pick that up for the wife too, although maybe I'll hide it for christmas.

    How to Steal A Million for me. Now only if they would release Two for the Road, then my collection of favored Hepburn films will be complete...I think.

    I already ordered Gilmore Girls through the Columbia House sale for $35. I'll probably pass on the Matrix set, though it is somewhat tempting.

    Matrix box (using my $50 gift card I won at CC so it's only costing $10 incl tax!)
    24: S3

    Curious about Last Horror Movie. This one has slipped by me. May rent it first but it's getting high marks...

    Micky Mouse Club sounds interesting, would love to have my kids watch this but I can't find any details on it other than it contains the first week of the show ("Anything Can Happen Day!")

    This week I'll be buying:

    The Complete Pluto
    Flinstones Season 2
    Gunga Din
    How to Steal a Million
    M
    Mash Season 7
    The Mickey Mouse Club
    Mickey Mouse in B&W vol. 2
    24 Season 3

    Thanks for all the info Mike.

    Nothing for me is a must this week. I might pick up the Matrix set or Gilmore Girls Season 2, but that depends on if I find Season 1 for a good price first.

    As expected, no big B&M sales on Crusade. Looks like I'll let my Amazon order stand. That will be all for me this week since so many other titles initially expected for this week were delayed (RotK:EE, Wonderfalls, and a few others).
