    Standard disclaimer:All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from theirprinted Sunday advertisements. All prices are subject to change by eachchain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the websiteprice.

    I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week inthe RoundUp.The titles included are those that I am interested in...as well asthose 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'tcomplain! If there is a title not includedin the RoundUp that youwant to see, PLEASE just look it up yourself, and be nice enough topost 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, sothere is no way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR localWal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. And, Circuit City is still outof business...even in Hawaii (where they NEVER guaranteed their pricesanyway).

    Well, Community is a little pricey for how short the season was, but I may have to knuckle under and buy it anyway (since...y'know...it's Community). Nothing else for me this week. Thanks as always for the update, Mike!

    Hi. I may go for the Best Buy deal of Heaven is for Real + God's Not Dead (both Combo packs) for $24.99. Is this advertised or online only or in-store only? Thanks Mike.

    It's advertised in the Sunday flyer, so it will be in store. I think I'll be going for that deal, too.

    Not sure if it will be available on line, but I would suspect so.

    For anyone new to the RoundUp, all of my info for BB & Target comes from their Sunday flyers and reflects what's available in stores.

    The Amazon prices, obviously, come from amazon.com as close to the midnight Saturday posting time as I can get it. Usually a day or so before. Otherwise, I find the Amazon prices turn out not to be too accurate. They change their pricing all the time--to match their competitors and for other reasons.

    Thanks Mike!I may have to check out that deal from BB for the two previous "Expendables" movies for $7.99 each combined with the $8.00 Fandango Cash for "Expendables 3". Up to this point this series has been a (very) guilty pleasure rental for me, but at those prices I may want to scoop them up just for the curiosity factor. The third "Expendables" movie is actually getting unusually good advance "word of mouth" in spite of its PG-13 rating. Sad to see that Amazon is not offering "Need for Speed" which pretty much confirms that they're "in negotiation" with Disney. That prompted me to check my preorders for "Hercules" and "Tarzan" and was relieved to see that they're still showing ship dates.

    I'm slated to review The Full Monty and Oculus, but neither has yet arrived. I reviewed Need for Speed a week ago. The review can be found here.

    Thanks, Mike!

    I'll pick up Phantom Of The Paradise and Without Warning this week.

    I'd usually pick up Community in a heartbeat but at $27, I'll wait a couple months (at most) and get it on sale. I've got such a backlog that I can wait them out.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    Next weeks Disney titles will be 17.99 at BB on release week. So it's wait and see if Amazon matches that.

    I'd like to get Grizzly for the nostalgia value. I remember loving and being scared silly by this film when I was a kid. But it probably won't live up to my fond memories (many favorite films from childhood do not).

    ^ Despite its shortcomings, I love Grizzly but it's definitely a movie where you might wish you hadn't tried to walk down memory lane.

    Thank you, Tony. Looks like I'll be canceling on Thursday so I don't get caught with an early delivery.

    Stopped in Costco this afternoon. They had a surprising number of Criterion's for $19.99: Charade, Harold and Maude, Blow Out, Dazed and Confused, Life Acquatic, Rushmore...and a few others. I ended up with Blow Out and Dazed and Confused.

    Picked up Expendables 2 with the 8 bucks off. I was most liekly going anyway, but getting in for 4 bucks (or for the price of a free Blu), how could I pass that up? Even if 3 winds up stinking, 2 was some great fun.

    So, I stopped by my local Best Buy today to take advantage of that deal for God's Not Dead & Heaven is For Real for $24.99.

    Picked up both discs and , to my surprise, my sytore still had steelbooks of Divergent sitting there.

    Wasn't planning to pick one up.

    But I did.

    Oh well. Hope I like it. :D
