If there is a title not includedin the RoundUp that youwant to see, PLEASE just look it up yourself, and be nice enough topost 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, sothere is no way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR localWal-Mart/Sam’s Club location.

    I'll stay cheap this week. I got a DVD copy of The Hidden Fortress used for $3 when Hollywood Video went out of business.

    I'll be picking up American Hustle and The Slumber Party Massacre (don't judge me) this week. And I was planning on waiting for a sale on Saving Mr. Banks but Disney's plan of boosting sales with the $5 coupon will probably work on my weak mind.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    Thanks for the Round-Up, Mike. Thankfully nothing is calling my name this week from this list as I need to save my $$$ for the Twilight TIme special event.

    Mr Banks and Frozen probably from TRU -- Pirate Fairy preorder and MQ should bring them in for less than $9 each. Hoping for a triple with JB2, but no prices have looked close to the markHunchback will be mine but I'll have to wait for some sale. Maybe BN 40% sale in May or June.Black Stallion eventually, but this should be a $5 item eventually at FoxConnect or another site reasonably soon. It's always a movie I want to like more than I do. Beautiful visual, but it's a chore to get through in one sitting with the odd First split into 2 different movies.

    The mouse will get my money this week. I agree with Norman that I will wait for Fox Connect to have a sale so I can pick up the Black Stallion.

    American Hustle is currently coming up as $22.99 at Amazon -- same as the brick and mortar places. I will pick this up when the price drops.

    I'm surprised that no B&M store has Hustle for $19.99, but that's why Amazon raised their price versus what they had last night; they only have to match $22.99 to be lowest. Fortunately, I had mine ordered before, when it was lowered to $19.99. That's all for me this week.

    Since, I've seen it at a theater, I can wait on American Hustle to drop in price later this year.

    seriously nobody has American Hustle for $19.99? That's annoying.

    If you pre-ordered American Hustle BD at Best Buy it was $19.99, per their weekly ad a couple weeks ago.

    Details on the "My Frozen Chronicles" book at Best Buy are that it contains 60 journal pages, hence the "my" in the title, but it also contains:

    [*]Early Visual Development Poster Art
    [*]Easter Eggs from the film
    [*]Fold-Out Map of Arendelle
    [*]Frozen Character Personality Finder
    [*]Costume Design
    [*]Animation Modeling Sketches
    [*]Movie Quotes
    [*]Receipes, Games, Crafts & More
    [/list]
    I'd guess there is about 60 pages of the above items in the book as it looks to alternate between those & the journal pages per the photo in the ad. This info comes from Best Buy's website where you can also get a closer look at the cover of the book, which looks pretty cool with the iced over Arendelle village.

    Are you trying to be cheeky by posting that image of 'Frozen' which mentions the 3D version in the theater? :)

    Actually, Jeff, I was just kinda psyched to find an animated .gif. I was figuring someone would complain about there being no link to the trailer. :D

    All Disney this week and it's already been shipped, apparently. Now, the question becomes what do I watch first on Tuesday night?

    I'll be getting Hustle and Mr Banks for free with trade in at My local Moviestop. Also will wait for the 3D of Frozen.
