    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).

    I want to eventually pick up the I Love Lucy Movie to complete my collection. I'm renting Survivors based on a friend's recommendation.

    The next GI Joe set for sure when it hits sale price. Probably Armageddon at some point, too, though it's nothing I need to have right now. Public Enemies is slowly approaching the price point where I'd be happy to pick it up.

    Looking for Armageddon but don't like the prices. If I wanted Tombstone Best Buy has a good combo deal & Amazon an even better one but I don't want Tombstone.

    You and me both, Bill. I'm planning on exercising some patience and hoping for the price to come down soon enough.

    Patience is NOT a strong suit of mine but I shall try to practice it for Armageddon. I've got a 3 disc blu ray holder to put it in along with the Criterion double dvd which I'm saving (for the features). I hate to wait but I just can't see paying so much for a bare bones release (even though the anamorphic ws blu is supposed to be quite nice).

    I might go the Amazon route on Armageddon, Bill....but I wouldn't be surprised--like I said before--to see deals popping up on that title pretty soon.

    The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus into the Netflix queue. I didn't catch it in the theater, and I would probably blind buy it, except I did that for The Brothers Grimm, so no. Maybe that sale Observe and Report, bless its black heart.

    I meant to mention that our own HTFer, Scott McGillivray told us in a thread (I think it was back at Academy Award time) that he had a bit role in The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus.

    That's pretty cool!

    Armageddon blu ray at Wal Mart $20 minus 10% (brother's employee) discount = $18 + tax (& I didn't have to wait).

    Speaking of Wally World, The Great Mouse Detective was $10 when I walked in today. Perfect price for me. Might wanna check it out local stores for other deals on Warner TV, too.
