    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).

    A few hours early again this week as I, again, find myself outside that small library nestled among the high peaks of the Adirondack Mountains.

    Lol, Mike...

    I thought of you Thursday night when I left the store after closing and there was a couple in our parking lot, both with laptops, enjoying Starbucks' free wi-fi!

    Nothing for me this week but that's probably a good thing since next week is fairly expensive (Lost and The Simpsons Blu-rays).

     

    Thanks for the prices, guys!

    The only titles on Blu-ray that interest me this week are Dexter: Season 4 and Hamlet. Won't be getting them right away though. I'll wait for the eventual price-drops. Thanks guys!

    The Bourne films in "slim packaging" is on sale at Amazon. Does anyone know if this "slim" version is three individual slim cases, or is it a fold out hard-plastic gatefold kind of thing?

     

    The exterior looks similar to the older 3-pack which was a box with three full-size cases inside. But this is a different item, different SKU, and half the price.

     

    Anyone know details?

    Prices remain ridiculous so nothing new for me. I may bite on The Crazies at $20 but that seems to be only a matter of short time till it's under $15.
     

    Thanks as always, sorry to sound like a broken record on these prices but I have zero interest in new releases when they remain that high.

    When I was typing up BB's bonus disc for the Dexter release, it struck me that it seems like it's been quite awhile since BB has offered up any exclusive bonus material.
     

    Not that that's a bad thing...

    Assuming my shiny new BB card gets here this week, I will be procuring a new PS3 as well as making a little headway into rebuilding the collection...but with a twist this time.

     

    I will actually watch what I buy. :)
