    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.

    Man, I can't believe there's no milkshake tie-in with "There Will Be Blood." Talk about an opportunity wasted.

    Mike,
    That's the wrong Kismet you have with Dietrich and Colman. This is the 1955 musical with Keel and Blythe.

    So it looks like the Mythbusters release includes the famous first appearance of Kari Byron.

    Fortysomething on DVD and Munchausen on Blu-ray for me. And grumbles to Paramount for not having a high definition version of There Will Be Blood.

    I'll be picking up There Will Be Blood on DVD and Walk Hard on Blu Ray.

    Normally, I'd wait for the Blu Ray of There Will Be Blood but I thought it was the best movie of the year so I'll pick it up now.

    I too would love a BD of There Will Be Blood, hopefully this summer. In the meantime, hopefully it will show up on Comcast HD On Demand.

    Missed "Houdini, Movie Star" the first time around. I can't resist a set that includes Harry Houdini battling a robot. [​IMG]

    I'm SO on-the-fence about the Perry Mason set...I already have S1 & 2 (and will buy all the seasons if released) so I don't know...

    Tough call for a fan, Eric. Shame on them for throwing this "best of" collection out in the middle of releasing the season sets.

    Joseph: Your sig pic takes on special significance this week.

    Really confused--is that Target bonus disc included with the 2-disc version or just the single disc?
