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

    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).

    Just a couple of rentals this week:
    Where the Wild Things Are
    Alice in Wonderland
    (1933, if Netflix has it)

    Mike,
    the picture for Alice shows as an empty box with "LL" in the upper left corner...

    Only thing for me this week is the Doctor Who Dalek War, box set.
    I will rent 2012, see if its better than The Day After Tomorrow. One of the worst movies i have seen.

    Thanks Mike, and Patrick. Keep up the good work!

    As a big John Carpenter fan, I'll definitely be picking up Elvis this week.

    Thanks for the prices, guys! [/url]

    I think if you didn't like The Day After Tomorrow, you're making a wise choice in renting 2012.

    So a $20 premium on Clash of the Titans for the BD? Yeah, okay...that means I can wait to revisit Harry Hamlin until it's a weekly special in May. I'm tempted on 2012. It wasn't a great movie and I acknowledge its problems, but it should be one killer BD for the audio.

    Thanks Mike. I've spent years trying to avoid that tag . I fixed it. FWIW Kevin Koster is working on a review of the title.

    Wow...Alice In Wonderland (1933) isn't even available from Netflix! Kinda surprising given the big names that are in it.
