    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).

    Thanks Mike! Anyone have any opinions on Off Limits? I should note that Jackass 3D while on Blu-ray is NOT a 3D blu-ray. Be prepared to break out the paper glasses.....

    Drive Angry will be lucky if it's in theaters until 3/22/11, let alone 4/22/11.




    I'll have to see if I can track down Sexter S1-S3 first. Is this the one about the serial killer who sends nude pics of himself to his victims via cell phone?

    The Walking Dead on Blu-ray for me.......the only thing else that interests me this week is MST3K: XX, but I won't be getting that for awhile. Slow week otherwise....

    Excalibur even with a mediocre transfer is still better than what I have now and I love this movie.


    Nausicaa is a probable with the Disney $10 coupon, but dang I was hoping for somebody to have at least a small deal.


    Morning Glory looked like fun from the trailers, but it's going to one of those movies that will never drop in price I'm afraid.


    May just have to get the Billy Joel concert, but live concert (particularly Stadium venue) discs rarely live up to the hope/hype.

    Thanks for the prices!

    Off Limits is a decent Bob Hope service comedy (though he's really a bit long in the tooth to be in the Army). I don't think the script wrings the maximum fun out of a Hope-Mickey Rooney pairing, but it's "serviceable." (pun intended)

    Shame the Nausicaa Blu is back up to the standard BB $29.99 price point after getting both Alice In Wonderland and Bambi down to ten bucks apiece after the DMR coupons. Oh well, I'll have to pick it up regardless.

    I actually use my Right finger for the b button. Gift shop has been on the shelf at Target for awhile now, must have bbeen an exclusive. Also rented it on Netflix streaming back in December so I guess NF had an early streaming version.

    Nothing to buy, but will definitely be renting Walking Dead and Inside Job. I knew I'd seen Exit... previously on Netflix streaming (my new favorite pastime!).


    And Mike, I'm sure you're aware, but the Billy Joel concert arrives on CD this Tuesday also....not sure what he's like live these days, but he was amazing back in the 80's!

    I'm sad to say, a Billy Joel concert in the early 80's was maybe my last real live big venue mega-concert -- I think about 10-20 of us from Post-grad school went to that one and it was

    incredibly good. Too old and too busy to play that game anymore.

    The Geriatric Circuit concert series from the late 90's+ of people I was actually interested in seeing just didn't interest me much and it was so much easier just to watch

    the various Eagles Farewell tours shows on LD/DVD/Bluray -- cheaper, better sound, and bathrooms closer by. I'd love to be able to re-live a prime era Jimmy Buffett concert

    again. Saw Elvis, missed the Beatles. Saw Yes and the Moody Blues, missed Pink Floyd and Zepellin when I had the chance. Saw Charlie Daniels, the Oak Ridge Boys, went to the

    Grand Ole Opry but danged if I never saw Loretta Lynn. Saw Chicago, saw the Guess Who, but somehow kept missing Elton John and Springsteen

    Not a thing this week. I still have The Walking Dead sitting on the Tivo from when it aired last year. I haven't been really interested in finishing the season so there's no point in getting it this week on disc.

    Was that the DVD or the Blu-ray? The DVD came out in the U.S. last year, but the Blu-ray is just now being released, although it's been available in the U.K. for some time. I'm aware of this only because we've been trying to get review copies without success. (I saw the film in a theater.)


    A link to my Blu-ray review of The Man from Nowhere has now been added.
