    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).


    The Specials

    --There is a number of new Blu-ray releases from Twilight Time this week (see grid above).  You know the drill.  If you want to pre-order...go HERE


    --The following recent releases are on sale this week at Best Buy:


    $9.99:  Gravity DVD.

    $14.99:  The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (Blu CP), Gravity (Blu CP).

    $19.99:  The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (3-D Blu CP), Gravity (3-D Blu CP).

    --Best Buy Odds and Ends:  None to report.


    --Target this week has an EXCLUSIVE RELEASE of Orange is the New Black: Season 1 (both DVD and Blu).  Includes EXCLUSIVE content.

    --Target Odds and Ends: A list of $9 DVDs.

    Thanks for the Roundup!

    Her this week immediately and Spirit eventually. It seems odd to say I'll wait for a price drop when the SRP is $14.99, but Amazon isn't discounting it, which makes it $17 with tax here, and that's more than I want to pay for a catalog title upgrade lacking new bonus material.

    That production of RICHARD II is phenomenal -- I saw it as a special event at my local arthouse in December. Anybody interested in Shakespeare should definitely check it out. I would like to get it at some point, but $27 plus tax is too high -- maybe later if it drops. It's great though, and worth a rental at the very least if you can find it.

    Crocodile Dundee will be $5.99 at the same sale.

    Lots of other pretty good prices on some Blurays to get you to Free Shipping.

    The First World War set on Entertainment One replaces an earlier (and more expensive) set on Image. Has anyone had any experience with the quality of the Entertainment One pressings?

    I'll be picking up the hilariously filthy Eastbound & Down: Season Four, Evil Speak and Final Exam.

    Her is well worth a rental for those that haven't seen it.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    I'll be renting Her and I may even rent I, Frankenstein at some point just to see if it's as bad as it looks. I will be picking up Flying Tigers.

    Think Blue = Blu, Sam! ;)

    I've thought about flip-flopping the grids...but you know people tend to be creatures of habit...

    There seems to be a software problem in the forum these days. Somehow Sam's title has changed from "nutter" to "moderator". That surely cannot be correct.
