    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).



    A note about Best Buy prices: When available, I include Best Buy prices on new releases from their Sunday flyer. The rest are taken from bestbuy.com. Often, there will be discrepancies between the flyer and on-line prices. If you plan on buying a high-profile new release title from Best Buy, I advise you to check both prices and act accordingly. You can possibly take advantage of their on-line ordering with in-store pick-up, or get them to match their own on-line price, etc. The price differences can often be substantial.

    If I don't win one of the copies in the HTF Contest for Scott Pilgrim, that's a definite buy. Otherwise, I'm exercising rigid self-control and getting nothing else this week.

    Thanks as usual, Mike! For a moment there, I thought the Avatar SE BD set was coming this week, but nope, that'd be the next coming week...

    Stellar work as ever, Mike. Scott Pilgrim will be mine, looks like Amazon may be the way to go, taking taxes into consideration. Have a great week, everyone. Hug a vet.

    I'll be picking up Mystery Science Theater 3000 this week and the Scott Pilgrim DVD as a Christmas gift. I'll wait until Scott Pilgrim Blu-ray drops in price to pick it up for myself.


    Thanks for the prices!

    After getting the Blu-ray treatment for season one, I, too, was VERY disappointed that Fox chose to release Lie to Me only in SD for season two. It must have sold very poorly indeed.

    Unless I'm mistaken (and when has that ever happened?), Amazon is selling the exact same Bing Crosby DVD set as listed above

    but with a bonus CD to be released next week for 12.99:

    My pleasure! The only reason I found it was because you listed the DVD-only version in your round-up, so thanks for that!

    Getting Scott Pilgrim blu-ray as a blind buy. I dont do this often, but it seems kind of like a movie, that if I liked Kick-Ass , I should like this. At least it seems like that from the trailers.

    Scott Pilgrim and Charlie St. Cloud are being added to the Netflix queue. I'm probably going to pick up Superman/Shazam and Big Daddy, at the very least. I have Ice Blues (anothe release this week) coming from Amazon since no B/M store is likely to carry it.


    Sorry for being so freaking late this week...and thanks for doing what you do, Mike. I never say that enough!
