    ‡ = Two different covers for this release. Princess Bride “Buttercup Edition” and Princess Bride “Dread Pirate Edition”.

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

    (HD-DVD) after a title = New High-Definition release.

    Individual titles included in box sets listed above:

    Adam Sandler Collection: Big Daddy. Mr. Deeds, 50 First Dates.

    Betty Grable Collection: Volume 1: My Blue Heaven (1950), The Dolly Sisters, Moon Over Miami, Down Argentine Way.

    Rat Pack Collection: Ocean’s 11, Robin and the Seven Hoods, 4 for Texas.

    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.

    "LP" in the RoundUp table means a store’s Sunday flyer says "Low Price". That means I could not locate a definite price for the item, and the ad is all I have to go on. Retailers use these phrases in advertisements so that they do not violate MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) agreements with the studios. Doing so can cost them thousands or even millions of dollars in co-op advertising funds.

    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, 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, as always, Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

    Thanks for the roundup. Just 16 Blocks & Princess Bride for me. I sure hope I can find a decent price somewhere for the latter. BB & CC aren't looking too good for it.

    Really surprised that Target didn't advertise the SE for "Princess Bride" as I remember it being a consistent best seller in its original edition. I will check on tuesday and post a price if they are carrying it. And unless someone is REALLY convincing, I don't even see anything this week that I would RENT, much less buy!

    Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike and Patrick!

    I will be picking up Beyond the Valley of the Dolls for sure, and possibly, Medium. I took advantage of their semi-annual sale and already ordered the Criterion three disc Complete Monterey Pop Festival box set at DDD for $47.99, delivered. It includes all three films plus a bonus disc with over two hours of additional performances (most from bands who didn't make it into the film like Buffalo Springfield, The Association, etc.), and a 64 page book. Best of all, this deluxe edition winds up costing six dollars less than buying just the two single discs at BB.

    My personal recommendation (at least for a rental) is Shane Black's "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang". If you like mismatched buddy-buddy movies (Shane wrote "Lethal Weapon"), you'll like this one.

    I believe the 2/$20 is referring to the John Fogerty- Long Road Home DVD and CD sets ($14.99 and $9.99, respectively). I really don't believe that there is a separate CD release for the Rush set. If only there were... (and it knocked the total price down by $5!)

    I've been meaning to start collecting Magnum for some time now, so this looks like a great time to start. Then again, I've also read a lot of complaints regarding defective discs or poor audio...
