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

    Individual titles included in box sets listed above:

    Classic Film Noir (Double Feature) – Volume 3: Amazing Mr. X (The Spiritualist), Reign of Terror (Black Book).

    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).

    As much as I'd love to stimulate the economy more this week with South Pacific and Milk (Target), I blew way too much coin last week with a whole bunch of Bond's from BB and Amazon. I'll sit this one out, I think. (Thanks guys!)

    Goldfinger and World Is Not Enough (Target), Slumdog and the Matrix for me. American In Paris is tempting.

    I was at Target this morning and there were six Bond Blu-rays on sale. Don't quote me but I think the other two were Thunderball and Die Another Day.

    I'll be picking up The Fugitive: Season Two- Volume Two on DVD and Ghosts Of Mars and Two Evil Eyes on Blu-ray.

    Thanks for the prices, guys! [​IMG]

    The Target price for the 007s is great, but mine never has many BDs in stock. I'm scheduled to go today but I doubt I'll have much luck...

    [​IMG] No excuses. Fixed.

    But, at least Mary Martin was also known to have weighed about "101 pounds of fun..."
