    In the grid are two listings that include several different titles:

    “Airport: Terminal Pack” contains four films: Airport, Airport ’75, Airport ’77, & Airport ’79: The Concorde”

    “Herzog/Kinski Collection” includes six films by Werner Herzog with Klaus Kinski: Aguirre, the Wrath of God; Woyzeck; Cobra Verde; Nosferatu; Fitzcarraldo; My Best Friend.

    Also, much like last week with Ed Wood, problems have beset a box set of Ingmar Bergman films due for release Tuesday. “Ingmar Bergman Collection” includes five Bergman titles: Persona; Shame; Hour of the Wolf, The Passion of Anna; The Serpent’s Egg If anyone wants to know what’s up, read this thread which discusses the problem with the release. The set might be showing up in some flyers around the country. I'm also unsure of the status of the individual titles. Most places are listing them for about $19.99


    Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed advertisements, the Sunday of the week of release (so as to catch any week-of-release sale prices). All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price. If a price is marked "$_N/A_" in the grid, it means that this title is not shown as available on that chain's website or perhaps in their ads...but it COULD still be in-stores!

    $_"LP" means the advertisement says "Low Price", and $_"HP" means the advertisement says "Hot Price". Use of either of these in the Roundup grid indicates that 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 only include the titles I feel like including (or the ones Dave tells me he's looking for ;o)). In fact, the titles are pretty much the ones I'm personally interested in, with few exceptions. I don't get paid for this, and I don't have time to devote to doing every DVD. Look, Dave has a lovely wife and a five-year-old son that he is spending time with. 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...like Dave does!

    Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii. Also note that I cannot include Wal-Mart prices in the standard Roundup: Wal-Mart sets prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is not a way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart location. When it comes to Wal-Mart prices mentioned at all, just remember that "Your Mileage May Vary".


    --Amazon is still featuring free shipping on orders over $25. Restrictions apply.

    --BE CAREFUL! Intolerable Cruelty is available in both Widescreen and Fullscreen versions...get the correct one.

    --ALSO! In The Cut is available in both an “R” version and an “Unrated/Uncut” Director’s Edition. Get the one that’s best for you.

    --Lion King 1 ½ is going to be a loss leader for some places this week. Watch for it to dip below advertised prices in some stores. Of course, many stores are being coy about their price for LK 1 ½. It is in the K-Mart flyer this week without a price. CompUSA has it in their flyer listed as “Hot Price”. Even Best Buy is vague. Although BestBuy.com is showing $17.99, the Best Buy Sunday flyer has LK 1 ½ next to another $17.99 title, but not distinctly marked.

    --Best Buy, this week, is offering $5 off when you buy both Lion King 1 ½ AND any other title in their Disney section or Pirates of the Caribbean.

    --Best Buy is also offering $10 off when you buy Angel: Season 3 with Angel: Season 1 or 2. BestBuy.com is showing a price of $39.99 for Angel: Season 3. The Best Buy Sunday flyer is showing $45.99

    --Circuit City’s Sunday flyer is showing Intolerable Cruelty at a “Low Price”. I think they will end up at $16.99

    --Circuit City is also offering this week its popular “All CDs are $11.99 each or less” sale. Includes single disc titles reg $14.99 or less. Excludes SACD or DVD-A. Limit 3 per title per customer.

    Thanks for keeping up the great work Mike. I'll be getting the Abbott & Costello and Ma/Pa Kettle sets this week.

    Pufnstuf is tempting but I'm going to watch a few episodes on TVLand to see if this show holds up for me. I've found that some things watched through 10 year eyes don't hold up as well when looked through the eyes of a **cough** year old. [​IMG]

    Thanks a bunch, Mike. I'll finally be using my $15 worth of Reward Zone money for Airport. I might pick up Lion King 3/2 - I'll see what Target charges.

    Costco's site shows Angel S3 for 36.99. Why was this shown as "N/A" in the round up?

    For me this week,
    WWE: The Monday Night Wars
    and
    WWE: The Stone Cold Truth
    costing me a combined $0, store credit rules


    Bah, just my luck, I don't have a circuit city anywhere near me, and its a shame because I refuse to pay full price of $49.95 for a season of only 8 episodes.

    Thanks as always Mike and Patrick.

    What's with the re-release of the Herzog/Kinski set? Anyone know what's different about it?

    Just to clarify. The CC ad says the 11.99 per CD price is limited to 3 "per title" per customer. I don't think there's a limit to how many CDs one can buy.

    I noticed a bargain for Norah Jones' new CD that will be released on Tuesday. Target is advertising it for $9.98, of course that is only a penny less than several other retailers.

    Is the "Airport" set one of those "Universal Franchise Collections"? I'm not sure what to think of these. Has anyone bought any of these and can you vouch for them? Seems like a steal at $5 per movie.

    That and Mr. Bill/HR Pufnstuf are the only tempting items this week. This will be a good week to get caught up.

    'Cause I couldn't access their site earlier. All available Costco prices have been added to the grid. Anyone, anytime, feel free to contribute prices to the thread! [​IMG]

    As an aside, I gotta believe Wal-Mart will blow everyone out of the water on Lion King 1 1/2. But, maybe I'll be wrong. Kinda surprised Toys 'R' Us isn't doing something big with it.
