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

    Individual titles included in box sets listed above:

    Billy Wilder Film Collection: The Apartment, The Fortune Cookie, Some Like It Hot, Kiss Me Stupid.

    TCM Archives: Forbidden Hollywood Volume 2: The Divorcee, A Free Soul, Night Nurse, Three on a Match.

    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.

    I was going to get Archie's Funhouse this week, unfortunately some unexpected expenses have forced me to postphone this. I'll probably pick it up in two weeks when season 4 of The Wild Wild West comes out! [​IMG]

    5 Centimeters per Second this week, which is worth a look - it's the new animated feature from the maker of "Voices of a Distant Star" and The Place Promised in Our Early Days (which beat out Steamboy and Howl's Moving Castle for some awards for best animated film in Japan in '04).

    Fred Meyer has 101 Dalmations paired with a kid's metal 101 Dalmations lunchbox for $19.99. Not quite the classic pairing they did with a box of donuts with the Simpsons Movie. [​IMG]

    Maybe when they release the Blu-ray version of Lawrence they will throw in a bag of sand..... [​IMG] (Or maybe a toy train with a big-ol' firecracker.)
