    (CC) after a title = New release in the Criterion Collection.

    Individual Titles in the Collections Listed Above:

    TCM Greatest Classic Films Collection: War (DVD): Battle of the Bulge, The Dawn Patrol, Gunga Din, Operation Pacific.

    TCM Greatest Classic Films Collection: Westerns (DVD): Chisum, Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid, The Stalking Moon, Ride the High Country.

    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).

    20th Anniversary edition of Evil Tunes?!? Hey, I appreciate camp and naked women, well, probably even more than most people, but we are seriously scraping the bottom of the barrel now.

    It's been two years, and they still can't get Iron Man under $20 for a "sale" price?

    For anyone with a Meijer around, they list the animated Iron Man show and X-Men V5 at $16.99 each. I think that's the best price out there right now. (They also have Saving Private Ryan BD for $24.99 and the four individual Batman movies for $16.99.)

    I'll be picking up Saving Prviate Ryan this week. I'd love to pick up the Escape From L.A. Blu-ray but I'll be waiting until it hits a better price.

    Thanks for the prices, guys!

    Thanks for the Round-Up!

    For those wanting No Time For Sergeants please be aware that deep discount is offering this for $9.53 which is the best price I've found on it. We need to encourage WHV to release more pressed classics at great prices.

    I agree. Paramount titles don't seem to go on sale that often though.

    Wow. New release pricing is getting rough again. No major titles for under $22.00

    Thanks Mike for another roundup!

    I thought Rock 'N' Roll High School had been announced for Blu-ray, too. Why not release it simultaneously with the DVD reissue?

    Because it's a cruel world and Shout Factory wants me to wait an extra week to see the HD release of the greatest B movie ever made with the greatest rock band in history.

    Only a guess, but the specs on the package didn't match what was on the review disc we were sent, so they needed to tweak the packaging--again, just a guess.

    Sitcoms don't sell well on Blu-ray.
