    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).

    The Specials

    --The usual price discrepancies, this week, between the Best Buy flyer and bestbuy.com on a number of new release titles . So, if you are thinking of picking up a title at your local store, you MAY want to consider doing a purchase on BB.com and an in-store pickup.

    Thanks for the prices, guys!

    Super Friends when it goes on sale. Same with BSG. But I may be forced to pick up Fight Club on the cheap...only problem is I've only watched the DVD once since it came out....

    I got a blu-ray player for Christmas so I will have to start checking out this weekly thread again. As always thanks to Mike, Patrick, et. al. for putting this together every week.

    I was hoping there would be some Chuck deals such as $10 off if you bought both seasons.

    If anyone's interested (looking at you, Mike, if memory serves), BestBuy.com has Julie and Julia (BD) for $19.99. The store will price match, obviously. They also have their standard array of $9.99 BD's on sale in store: Phantom of the Opera, John Q, Traitor, etc.

    Jason: Thanks! I was happy to see J&J for $19.99 a couple of days ago...except I was just as disappointed to see that it was the DVD not the BD. I have yet to see a copy show up in a used bin in any of my local stores or at my local rental shops.

    Maybe I'll take you up on your suggestion...or I suppose I could order it on-line and do an in-store pickup, eh? I've never done that before...although I've seen them discussed here many times.

    It has amazed me how this title hasn't yet budged off its high price point. I know as soon as I pick it up, it will probably be a regular in the $9.99 or $14.99 sales...

    That's why I picked it up today. Yeah, it is $20, still on the high-ish side, but it Universal BD's aren't included in a ton of sales (just like Fox) are good prices on a regular basis. Plus, I really enjoyed J&J over the summer and $20 is more than fair, in my mind.

    Both the in store price match and online order should be no hassle for you. I did mine right at the register and didn't have a single problem.

    Thanks for the six years of doing this Mike. I know its a pain and there are weeks you would probably rather skip, but I can't tell you how often I use it!

    I wouldnt know what to do without The Round-Up. Thanks as always Mike, and Patrick.

    Galactica season 1 on Blu for me, and thats it. Kind of a slow period for movies, it seems. I have 11 items in my Amazon wish list, going all the way to the end of March. Not much, if you ask me.

    Damn, six years, thanks for doing this great service for all of us!

    It's 28.99 right now and since it was put up for order it has been jumping from that price to 31.99 and back just about twice a week.

    Amazon's $30 price for Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles Season 2 (BluRay) for me.

    This is what it should have cost from day one. Bought.
