    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).

    I really want that Longmire Blu-ray release but $54 just seems a bit steep. I think I might wait for it to drop some.

    Doctor Who: An Adventure in Space and Time for me (and possibly Dan Curtis' Dracula, as I remember it fondly from the misspent days of my youth).

    I'll be getting Sleepaway Camp this week and if I can find The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou at Costco, I'll grab that too (if not, Barnes And Noble sale).

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    Thanks for the prices, Mike. Not much there I don't already have, but I do remember that Dracula from television many years ago.

    This is a "calm before the storm" week: I don't have anything coming in for review this week, but next week is a tidal wave of releases I'll be attempting to cover.

    It IS kind of a snore fest this week...

    :D

    Although I do have The Complete Bob Newhart show on its way to me. And, I'll be picking up Red River eventually.

    (sigh). Each week I pray for the return of the Best Buy DVD trade in program.

    Quiet week, but thanks for the roundup! I will get Life Aquatic when it's cheaper or at the next Criterion sale.

    At least through yesterday, Best Buy had the 4-disc (plus CD) Blu-Ray set of "West Side Story" for $14.99. I could not resist.

    Probably a tired question by this point - is there a surefire way to tell if I purchased the corrected release?
