    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

    Hmmm. If that selection of pictures is any indication, this is going to be a great week for releases.

    Fine round up of ladies...i mean discs!

    Anyway, big week. Doctor Who, Torchwood, and i was gonna get Galactica on Blu. Not so sure now. I dont think i want the compete set. Not with crappy cardboard slip pockets. Not for $200, anyway. Might have to check it out in store, or get 4.5 on Blu, for now.

    Thanks as always guys!

    It's odd that A River Runs Through It is getting a BRD release so soon. The SD-DVD is generally a $5 disc in the bargain bins.

    Mike...I guess you should re-title this thread "Weekly RoundUp - The Hotties Edition" ......nice selection indeed.

    My top selection will be The Galactica Boxset followed by Fast & Furious: both on Blu-ray.

    Also plan to get the following BDs eventually....

    Green Lantern: First Flight
    Torchwood: Season 2
    Torchwood: Children Of Earth
    12 Monkeys


    Very big week for me....

    Ordering Green Lantern from DD later in the week, with the BSG Blu set to follow in November.

    We're going to BB so I can pick up just a...few...yeah, a few...of the $15 BD's. Revolutionary Road, Benjamin Button, The Wrestler, Taken. Looks like another good week for filling the "holes" in the collection.

    To quote Borat in regards to the lovely ladies posted...wa wa wee wa! :)

    BSG this week for me, along with The Wrestler. Tempted on Benjamin Button. $15 is a nice price on any Criterion Blu-ray.

    I'd love to get the complete BSG on Blu... even thought I might do it now with the Deep Discount sale, but things are a bit tight, so I think I am just gonna get the DVD of season 4.5 to complete my collection and wait on the big honkin' set. Hey, maybe in a year or so they'll have the really really complete version with "The Plan" and the missing webisodes.

    Based on the pic alone, I may have to check out "Repulsion"

    Thanks guys!

    I'll be picking up the Battlestar Galactica set. It's alot of money all at once but the 5 (or more) individual sets will end costing more than the series set. Especially since S2 and S3 have about 20 episodes so there's no chance that they'll be $40 a piece.

    Thanks for the prices, guys!

    Don't forget Barnes & Noble currently has 50% off all Criterion DVD and Blu-Ray titles (online or in-store). Most are $19.99 or less (including 'Repulsion') through August 2 (or $17.99 each of you have a B&N Membership).

    I held off on picking up "Battlestar" 4.0 after the split season release for season 2 was followed up with a complete season release. Any chance of that happening for season four, as well?

    Best Buy also has a $12.99 Paramount Blu-ray promotion going on today through August 22. I can't remember all of the included titles, but I know that The Truman Show, Election, Trading Places, Payback:DC, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, U2: Rattle & Hum, The Manchurian Candidate, Black Snake Moan, Black Rain, and World Trade Center were amongst them.

    Just to get clarification on something, Mike has the Spinal Tap BD listed at Best Buy for $21.99, while Patrick shows it being listed at BB for 25? Just wondering which is correct. Judging by B&M BD prices, I'm betting on the $25 price.

    Good question, Will.

    The $21.99 price I got from BestBuy.com. See it HERE.

    Patrick's probably is the price you'll find in-store from the flyer. You MAY be able, however, to get a cooperative customer service rep. to pricematch for you!

    Thanks Mike,

    Should be ok then, I've never had a problem at Best Buy yet with getting a price match with the website price.
