    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.

    It's the two disc version of the remake. That's a good price too.

    Oh man, this week is rough.

    Eyes Wide Shut
    Hostel
    Hostel Part II
    Saw III
    The Sopranos: Season Six- Part Two (I'm all over that Cleaver hat from CC)

    Mike, the Jack Ryan Collection HD DVD set has been delayed indefinitely, so you may want to take it off the list. There are, apparently, extras listed on the packaging but the discs are bare-bones.

    I wish Warner was releasing an HD box set of the Kubricks like they're doing with the SD. I may pick up a couple of those. Otherwise, nothing this week.

    I have a feeling that one might be a little "YMMV". [​IMG]

    But if you don't like Best Buy (or prefer not to pay sales tax) J&R.com is running the same deal minus the potential two extra movies.

    Voyage to Bottom of Sea: Season 2 V3$27.99$27.99$34.99- -

    I think that's supposed to be Season 3 Volume 2 [​IMG]

    Also,

    --Best Buy also has a $20 savings, instantly, when you purchase ANY TWO of the following five Science Fiction DVD collections: Firefly, Space – Above & Beyond, Alien Nation – The Ultimate Movie Collection, Alien Nation – The Complete Series, Harsh Realism.

    I think that should read "Harsh Realm" [​IMG]

    Of course, I have all of these already.....[​IMG]

    Lots of good stuff this week, but my wallet is puckered up with all of the spending I've done the past few weeks. I have to be good, or my wife will divorce me!

    Thanks for the Roundup!

    --John

    P.S. Congrats on winning the Blu-Ray player! Is this your first HD player? I'm on the other side of the fence, but I'm sure you will enjoy your new toy.

    Battleship Potemkin is a new 2 disc special edition from Kino at the same price as the old Image version. Of course, cheapskates can opt for the $6 Delta version.....

    DVDpricesearch.com lists a 2001/ACO two-pack as being in the "comedy" genre. [​IMG]

    Maybe I'll feel "sheepish" later, but I probably will also pick up the other Malcolm McDowell film O Lucky Man. [​IMG]

    And, finally: Yup. First one! And I'm going nuts trying to figure out how I should hook it up (I've got no HDMI, etc.) and learn about all the new technology. This is FUN! [​IMG]

    All the Kubrick's have been added to the Netflix queue. I just couldn't justify all that coin on movies I've never seen this close to Christmas. I will be getting Aquaman and SuperFriends, though.
