    The Disclaimer
     

    Standard disclaimer:All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from theirprinted Sunday advertisements. All prices are subject to change by eachchain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the websiteprice.

    I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week inthe RoundUp.The titles included are those that I am interested in...as well asthose 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'tcomplain! If there is a title not includedin the RoundUp that youwant to see, PLEASE just look it up yourself, and be nice enough topost 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, sothere is no way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR localWal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. And, Circuit City is still outof business...even in Hawaii (where they NEVER guaranteed their pricesanyway).

    This doesn't happen very often: I'm not waiting on any review copies for this week's releases! But, I'm still playing catch-up with releases from earlier in the month, and I've got some items that are coming out in May!


    I'm waiting on the pre-ordered Hit the Deck and will Get Carter soon. I'll wait on Sorcerer which because it's a digibook is priced higher than usual vault titles. I'll probably have to wait a year to get it at a price I want to pay, but that's OK.

    Thanks, Mike!

    Doesn't look like a buying week for me, unless there's a good deal later in the week. Thanks Mike!

    No kidding. I've broken all previous records on each of the last three or four B&N sales, and this one looks to be just as humongous.

    Conspiracy Theory for me thank goodness it's going to be a light week. And thanks as always to Mike for putting together.

    Also, for those who want this BD, Amazon's price dropped to $9.96 today.

    If you're intetested in around a 20% discountWBSHOP has Sorcerer for $20 and Get Carter's for a bit over $9. If you can find another item or 2 thenRETAIL20HE coupon is active again which gives a "20% off $50" price. It won't let you stack other couponslike it did a couple weeks ago, but it still pretty good.Free Shipping for $35 in Movie purchases (+tax in around 15-20 states).

    Thinking about "Get Carter" (1971).Have already pre-ordered "Spectacular Spider-Man:Complete Series" on Blu.It's arguably the best TV media incarnation of Spidey and I can't believe we're actually getting it on Blu-ray!
