    (CC) after a title = New release in the Criterion Collection.

    (MoH) before a title = New release in the Masters of Horror Collection.

    Individual titles included in box sets listed above:

    Amityville Collection – Triple Feature: Amityville Dollhouse, Amityville 1992: It’s About Time, Amityville: A New Generation.

    Carlos Saura’s Flamenco Trilogy (CC): Blood Wedding, Carmen, El Amor Brujo.

    Icons of Horror Collection: Sam Katzman: The Giant Claw, Creature with the Atom Brain, Zombies of Mora Tau, The Werewolf.

    MGM Holiday Classics Collection: The Bishop’s Wife, March of the Wooden Soldiers, Pocketful of Miracles.

    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.

    "LP" in the RoundUp table means a store’s Sunday flyer says "Low Price". That means 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, 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, 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, as always, Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

    I'm going to try and get that cool Target Transformers box.

    Thank you both for all you do....I check this thread every week, even if I don't post on it often. It is very highly appreciated.

    As always, much thanks for the weekly list. [​IMG]

    Looks like an off week for me. Maybe Transformers on HD DVD, but I wasn't nuts about it so I might hold off for next week's big guns (the Kubrick titles).

    Is the Target version of Transformers the same 2 disc set available elsewhere, with the case being the only exception?

    Thanks as usual.

    I know I'll be picking up Mythbusters 2 for my son. Other than that, there are some possible upgrades this week, but only if I find out definitively that there's significant pq improvement.

    As always, thanks Mike and Patrick.

    I'm probably picking up Transformers HD today and maybe the Planet Terror steelbook. I liked Studio 60 but not for $40+. I'll pick it up down the road when it's cheaper.

    Transformers to break in my new HD DVD player, for certain.

    I'd love to snag Studio 60, but next week is going to be a killer and I can't fit it into the budget. [​IMG]

    Right on both counts, Jimmy! Thanks!

    Mike runs off to make the corrections!

    It's funny...because when I saw the name I said to myself that I had better not confuse him with one of my favorite gameshow hosts...Bill Cullen. But I still got the name wrong...and I don't know why! [​IMG]

    Just Transformers HD DVD for me this week! It will be my 46th HD DVD. I don't buy regular DVDs anymore. If Hollywood wants me to buy, they better put it on HD DVD. Otherwise, rental at Red Box for $1 per day.

    How long is Blu Ray Transformers held up? I don't see it listed above??
    Is it common for BR discs to come out later than normal release date hd discs?
