    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.

    Just getting Lego Indiana Jones and possible a Blu-Rau title. Thanks for the Roundup Mike. Maybe the day Toy Story 2 comes out on it, you will have a HD version of your signature.

    I hate to bring this up, but does anybody know if Best Buy's Dirty Harry exclusive is included with the Blu-ray set?

    I was planning on buying it at Best Buy anyways, but that will be a real bummer if it isn't.

    I'll be picking up The Dead Zone: Season Six and There Will Be Blood on Blu-Ray. Eventually, I'll nab the Dirty Harry set, Signs and Cloverfield.

    Thanks for the prices, guys! [​IMG]

    Nothing more than a guess but I really doubt it. I don't know if I've ever seen an exclusive carried over to a Blu-Ray release.

    Huge week - Cloverfield, There Will Be Blood, and Signs on Blu-ray; The Machine Girl and The Animation Show 3 on DVD, and that Red Sox set looks awful tempting...

    The end from major studios. There's a couple stragglers from Bandai and an indie coming out. I figure the latter will be dropped without much notice, but Bandai will finish out their crazy-priced Freedom series on hybrid discs.

    Like one of the amazon posters, I would like to have the entire 7-24-04 game instead of the highlight of the final AB.

    At my BB, Children of Men with the movie cash was offered in full-screen version only. Not sure if this is the case everywhere, but buyer beware. Thankfully, I checked the specs on all the discs before checking out. Put back COM and picked another title instead.

    8.99 Robocop at BB IS the steelbook version. but my BB only had the steelbook replaced with a standard amaray case and slipcover. I may wait to see if this gets replinished in a few days with a steelbook.

    oOH, hey, Walmart finally has the "Extraordinarily Deluxe Edition" version of Monty Python and the Holy Grail for sale for $13 plus tax and shipping. This is the version with the corrected aspect ratio and the bonus audio CD, NOT the wrong aspect ratio version that Target always has on sale. I hate to shop at Walmart but this is the first time I've seen the best edition of Grail go on sale.
