    Standard disclaimer:All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from theirprinted Sunday advertisements. All prices are subject to change by eachchain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the websiteprice.

    I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week inthe RoundUp.The titles included are those that I am interested in...as well asthose 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'tcomplain! 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. And, Circuit City is still outof business...even in Hawaii (where they NEVER guaranteed their pricesanyway).

    That's what your old DVDs are for, Jason. All your DVD titles which you've upgraded to Blu should be arranged into some nice seating. :D

    Holy guacamole, Mike! If I were to sit on that, I'd be scared something would get...stuck...where I didn't want it!

    Has anyone seen or reviewed Rooster Cogburn?

    Sure would be nice if it's a great transfer. If I'm remembering correctly, the DVD was non-anamorphic and absolutely painful to watch, one of the most wretched transfers I'd seen at the time.

    Anchorman 2 was pretty funny and at $17, they've sold a copy to me.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    It's a good transfer. A few scenes looked a little washed out or digital, but the color is very strong and the mono sound is very good as well. If you enjoy the film, it's a no brainer to upgrade from that horrendous DVD.

    Thanks for the prices, Mike. And thanks for getting those review links placed. I sneaked Seal Team 8 in on you at the last minute last night, so I wasn't sure if you'd have time to include it.

    I'm additionally scheduled to review Once and Fargo from this list, but who knows if they'll come or not? I'm still waiting for The King of Comedy from last week!

    Guilty Pleasure to be sure ... but I've *got* to glomm-on to that "King Kong vs Godzilla" Blu ... I'm actually really looking forward to *all* of the Godzilla movies we're fixing to get on Blu! (As far as I'm concerned the new Godzilla movie has already been a success!!)

    Big Harry Dean Stanton fan so I'll be ordering that set, well two. One for me and one for my wife who is also a huge Harry Dean Stanton fan.


    Also already ordered Once, when it first went up on Amazon. preorder price of 13.99.


    Probably get Anchorman 2 at Target.

    I would like Once, but (of course) I just recently bought the DVD of that before the Blu-ray's preorder listing went up. I'll wait to see if it eventually comes down before double dipping. Nothing else for me this week. Thanks!

    Thanks for the Round-Up, Mike! Nothing on the must buy list this week although I might save my dimes for that Harry Dean Stanton set. Great actor with a terrific portfolio of work.
