    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).

    Thankfully nothing for me this week, considering the number of discs I picked up at the end of last week. Not even a cheap BB catalogue title. :) Stardust will be a pick-up when it comes down in price, as will Smallville. I can wait for both of them.

    Nothing for me, although I might bite on the TCM Hammer Collection (not sure if I have any of those titles yet!)
    And a Happy Labor Day to those that actually have the day off!

    The Player on BD! Had forgotten it was coming out around now. Will probably just wait a bit to get it at a nice price since that seems to be the trend these days for catalog titles -- maybe it'll drop to ~$13 or so w/in a month or two (and certainly by BF time me thinks). I've got too many titles in my backlog anyhow.

    Is the "Poltergeist" BD something new, or is it just a price drop? Been wanting to pick that one up.

    Probably just another non-digibook reissue of a previously released Warner digibook title. Would be surprised if the disc actually has any different content on it.

    I think there might be a couple of such releases this week (A Scanner Darkly, Matrix Reloaded?).

    I just got "The Office" season six on blu-ray and it has the worst multi-disc case I've ever encountered. There are no hubs to hold the discs in, instead there are tabs along the edges, so you have to snap the disc out. Anyway I bought it at Target and the bonus DVD has two Extended episodes (to about 30 minutes in length). None of the extra footage is included as deleted scenes on the actual set. It would have been nice for this content to be included on the actual set in HD. They can make the episodes as long as they want in my opinion and I wouldn't complain.

    I updated with links to reviews of Mars Attacks, Phantom 2010 Miniseries on DVD and Blu-ray, and The Office Season 6.

     

    Based on these reviews I am going to wait for a good sale to pick up Mars Attacks, but I will now be picking up the Phantom because of Tim's review.

    I will be buying The Office: Season 6...and I really want to find out the differences between the bonus discs at Best Buy and Target.
     

    Jason: Can you give me any more specific info on the Target disc? I just read Kevin's review of his screener (which lists each episode and how long the additional deleted scenes were for each episode). Can you explain for us anything further about the Target disc and what episdoes and length of the material, etc?

     

    And, can anyone fill in info on the Best Buy bonus disc?
