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

    The listing: Monty Python: …Personal Best refers to four separate individual releases featuring Flying Circus stars Terry Jones, Graham Chapman, Terry Gilliam and John Cleese. They are priced the same at all outlets. It appears as if a single box set containing these four titles and two earlier releases featuring Eric Idle and Michael Palin will be released March 28.

    Individual titles included in box sets listed above:

    Controversial Classics: Volume 2: All the President’s Men, Dog Day Afternoon, Network.

    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.

    Well nothing this week, even so my mom wants me to get Lady and the Tramp...which I might end up getting in the long run. Thanks for the round up Mike and the ghost of David Lambert.

    Thanks, Mike. Controversial Classics vol. 2 and (finally!) Newsradio S3 (already on its way). And I'll eventually pick up Lady and the Tramp.

    This is as good a place as any to mention that HTF, in conjunction with Universal Studios Home Entertainment, will be giving away a copy of The Ice Harvest autographed by director (and Ghostbuster) Harold Ramis!

    Any objections if we pick a winner from this thread?

    - Steve

    Thanks Mike and Patrick!

    Lady and the Tramp for sure on Tuesday, but based on the craptacular b&m prices for Controversial Classics: Volume 2, that will now be an online purchase.

    Contreversial Classics, Vol. 2 for me (probably from DDD), Walk the Line CE (probably from Costco), and Lady and the Tramp (looks like CC is the winner)...

    Yours, Mine, and Ours

    Ooooh! Pick me, pick me!

    Lords of Discipline
    Pride & Prejudice (Blind Buy)
    Walk the Line (Blind Buy - Probably 1 Disc)

    Whew, after this list I'm hoping that Patrick doesn't post any great catalog deals that I can't pass up. [​IMG]

    I'll probably pick up the special versions of Network and Dog Day Afternoon. Maybe I'll pick up C.O.P.S. if I see it cheap in the future, it was always a favorite of mine as a child. Thanks Mike.

    Steve, I'm sure nobody here would mind being considered for a free DVD, myself included! I am a big Ramis fan (just rewatched Caddyshack and Groundhog Day in the last few weeks, in fact) and I'd wanted to see Ice Harvest in the theater, but never quite made it out. So pick me! [​IMG]

    I really liked C.O.P.S as well - I wonder how it holds up.

    Just found that DDD is selling it for $20.93.

    Lady & The Tramp for me with the free movie ticket for the extra $2. I don't really have any use for a plush animal (& a kids ticket is good to get anybody into a matinee at our theater).

    Picking the contest winner from this thread sounds great to me, Steve.

    Thanks to Mike & Patrick for the Roundup. I'll be needing it a lot next week for Harry Potter 4 (2disc), Howl, Totoro & Shaggy Dog (looks like Disney's getting most of my $$$ this week & next).

    Maybe Beverly Hillbillies, but the price is a little steep right now. Then again, it ain't gettin' any cheaper. Damn. /Tom Anderson

    Not particularly interested, but I'm surprised Lady and the Tramp is just out this Tuesday, because I saw it at a drugstore yesterday. I hardly ever see a street date break.
