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

    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! Saw II is available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one!

    --An eclectic week. A John Ford & Henry Fonda classic. Jean Renoir! Lots of TV on DVD! An Amazon.com exclusive of Mamie Van Doren (Va-va-voom!). And, there’s that unforgettable Hollywood pairing of Pat Morita and Jay Leno! [​IMG]

    --I am without a Circuit City flyer this week as I post the RoundUp. I gathered CC info from various internet sources.

    --I think most stores will have a two-pack this coming week of Zathura coupled with Jumanji. Best Buy is advertising the 2-pack Collector’s Edition at $24.99.

    --Best Buy is advertising an EXCLUSIVE ON-PACK COMIC BOOK with its copies of Saw II ($15.99). Saw II on-pack comic book tells the background story of mastermind killer Jigsaw.

    --Best Buy will give you $15 off INSTANTLY when you purchase ANY season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. So, after the discount…Buffy: Season 1 = $17.99. Buffy: Seasons 2 thru 7 = $34.99 apiece.

    --I’ve got an unusual discrepancy between Best Buy’s flyer and bestbuy.com. The flyer shows NBA Street Series: Vol. 3 at $17.99. bb.com lists the same title at $14.99

    --Circuit City is advertising a $10 savings when you buy The Golden Girls: Season 4 ($29.99) with ANY OTHER season of The Golden Girls.

    --Circuit City is advertising an EXCLUSIVE FREE COLLECTIBLE FLASHING SAW BLADE PIN with the purchase of Saw II ($14.99).

    --Circuit City is also offering the opportunity to buy a 2-pack of Final Destination 1 & 2 with FREE MOVIE CASH to go see Final Destination 3 in theaters…PLUS a 20-minute BONUS DISC which contains a sneak peek at Final Destination 3.

    --Target is advertising a $5 GiftCard this week with the purchase of The Pretender: Season 3. Quantity limited. No rainchecks.

    --I think its worth noting that Target is advertising a price of $17.99 on the Audrey Hepburn Collection (Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Sabrina & Roman Holiday) as well as Seasons 1-3 of The Golden Girls for $24.99 apiece.

    The only thing I was going to get was Andy Griffith, but with the warning about cut episodes, I'll pass (or at least hold off until there's verification that the episodes are complete - which seems unlikely given the wording on the package [​IMG] ). So it looks like nothing for me this week.

    Thanks Mike & Patrick for the roundup. Just Zathura for me from CC.

    Ultimate Gretzky comes out while the great one is in Italy. Hope Janet doesn't bet all the profits from the first 2 weeks sales while Wayne's gone.

    Curses! I made a vow never to go to the local Circuit City againafter the horrible, inept cahiers I encountered in the after-Christmas sales. But I can't turndown that price on Gilmore Girls Season 5! Maybe I'll buy a paper tomorrow and hope for an ad - then I can get Best Buy to price match, and get RZ points to boot!

    I also plan to get MirrorMask - a blind buy, but one I feel secure in given its pedigree.

    "**BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! Saw II is available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one! "

    well it may be mar anyway for the widescreen version.
    it's another movie ar changed to 1.78.1.
    this one from 1.85.1 so it wont be noticable to most people.

    Anyone looking for a decent price on Young Mr. Lincoln should head over to DDD - they have it for $23.21 (over 40% off).

    As always, to Mike & Pat - thanks for the Round Up!

    Regarding Griffith Season 5 edits on another subforum David VP has referenced another message board whose analysis of running times seems to indicate that S5 may be complete. There is no cut episode warning on the packaging just a disclaimer on their website. Hopefully the website it wrong.

    Griffith is the only thing of interest to me this week.

    Thanks guys for the Round-Up.

    As I said, if in a few weeks, it appears that no cuts have been discovered, I'll buy it then, but I've already been burned buying tv shows that had cuts, which I then had to return.

    I did think twice about posting that image. But I didn't think most people would even notice that image of the rushing train in the La Bête Humaine poster. [​IMG]

    Does anyone happen to know if Circuit City is lowering the price of the other seasons of Smallville? Season 4 is now $27, but I need to get seasons 2 and 3.

    I made the mistake of buying season 1 for $16, and they got me hooked!!!! Cheap season 1's are the devil!!

    BTW, thanks for Mamie's Mammaries!!!
