    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).

    I've heard a lot of good things about This is the End, so I might splurge this week on that. And while I'm out, the new JLA movie should be fun for $13.

    But, ya know, I also spent a mini-fortune between Christmas/New Year's travel and a week in Vegas...not to mention planning a summer trip and San Francisco for Christmas '14. Criminey...

    And just a couple hours after I post the WRU, Richard put up his review of Blue Jasmine.

    I have added the link to the OP where it joins links to reviews of Cat People, Machete Kills and Man in the Dark 3-D.

    You might also find a thread or two around the forum in which you might get some information on It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. Just sayin'.

    :D

    Many more reviews to come this week: time is the problem to squeeze them all in.

    Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike.

    I already got Robocop and I might buy Cat People when it drops down in price a little bit but it's a relatively slow week for me.

    Also, Tom Hanks gives one of his best performances in Captain Phillips. Absolutely worth a rental for those that haven't seen it yet.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    Hmmm. Annette O'Toole was an important part of my adolescence.

    But I've never seen Cat People.

    Okay...so I lied. I went into Costco (alone) today and came out with Citizen Kane ($13.99) and the big Ben Hur box ($19.99).

    These prices are a bit crazy. I really want In a World.., Blue Jasmine and Captian Phillips, but the only one of the three with a decent release-week pricepoint is the lowest-grossing, least-seen of the three which boasts no Oscar nominations? Seriously? I'm fine waiting on a price drop.

    If you specificallty want those three, I can offer you a suggestion to get them for around $49 + tax from BN.BN is currently running a B2G1 sale -- CP is 28.70 and the other 2 are $252 possibilities1) If you are a member or are willing to start a membership (or 60Day Free Trial) then you should be able to use a $5 off $50 Transaction coupon (C9R9B4H) after they are officially released since codes won't work on preorders. The membership will also get you free expedited shipping2) I don't know what the instore prices will be, but often the new releases will be similar to current preorder prices.If you are a member, have a store nearby, and the prices are the same you should be able to get them for $48+ . Add $1.50 filler item then you can add the 5off50 coupon (some clerks will manually add code 122421) to save a few more dollars

    I was able to buy the BDs for The Butler, Mary Poppins and Captain Phillips from BN for 18.33 each. Used the 3 for 2 sale, plus a 20% coupon for one item.

    In that case, if you had seen Cat People in your adolescence it might have been too much. Either that, or you would have become a man that day. She was that impressive, naturally.

    Loved her in One on One. In fact, I ordered the DVD of One on One when I realized it was available from the WB Archive program.
