    Titles in the Collections listed in the above RoundUp:

    Elvis Presley Signature Collection: It Happened At the World’s Fair, Speedway, Spinout, Harum Scarum, Jailhouse Rock, Viva Las Vegas.

    Jane Austen Complete Collection: (BBC) Emma, Mansfield Park, Persuasion, Pride & Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility.

    Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed advertisements, the Sunday of the week of release (so as to catch any week-of-release sale prices). All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price. If a price is marked "$_N/A_" in the grid, it means that this title is not shown as available on that chain's website or perhaps in their ads...but it COULD still be in-stores!

    $_"LP" means the advertisement says "Low Price", and $_"HP" means the advertisement says "Hot Price". Use of either of these in the Roundup grid indicates that 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 only include the titles I feel like including (or the ones Dave tells me he's looking for ;o)). In fact, the titles are pretty much the ones I'm personally interested in, with few exceptions. I don't get paid for this, and I don't have time to devote to doing 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...like Dave & I do!

    Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii. Also note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the standard Roundup: they set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is not a way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. When it comes to Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices mentioned at all, just remember that "Your Mileage May Vary".


    **BE CAREFUL! Ella Enchanted is available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one. Girl Next Door is available in both “R” and “NR” versions...get the one that’s right for you.

    There’s something for everyone in this week’s new releases! Lots of TV on DVD. Jane Austen (for goodness sake!). Benny Hill (for badness sake! [​IMG] ) Elvis, Topanga, reptillian monsters, Clifford, a faithful dog, Prince, Sonny & Cher, a smart dolphin, Jim Brown, Rod Serling, really big snakes, George Feeny…. Roller Boogie. Shaolin Soccer. And, [deep, serious voice]…the World…at War[/deep, serious voice].

    And, make sure you check out the price drops at the bottom of the post! Something for everyone there, too! Monty Python, Xena, Bullwinkle, Hitchcock, the Mummy, Beethoven the dog, MacArthur, Dr. Seuss, etc.!

    Since I still haven't even got the second or third volume for Futurama, I will probably not bother with getting the fourth one just yet (don't have much money, so can't do the combine deal). Instead I just get some more games for the PS2....once it arrives from FedEX [​IMG] . Thanks for the roundup again, Mike.

    Target is carrying The Munsters for $39.99 and Purple Rain (don't know the price on that one offhand).

    Best Buy's pricing on box sets seems to get worse all the time...$41.99 for The Munsters and Night Gallery? I think I'll PM with CC and use my Reward Zone certificate on those.

    Thanks Mike.

    I could certainly be wrong, but I read the Target ad for Ella Enchanted to imply it's $15.99.

    In addition to that, I'll be picking up Benny Hill and World at War (most likely from Costco it appears).

    I almost picked up Boy Meets World Thursday, I thought it came out last week and I guess my local Wal*Mart did too because it was and still is in their new release section.
