    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).

    Thanks Mike. The three Criterion titles are on my list, but with the B&N 50% off sale about a month away I can wait!! Other than that, will probably grab Entourage S8.

    $69.99 is the price point I've been waiting for for the complete Star Wars Blu-ray set.
    And is this correct?
    I can't find Ghost Protocol BD on Best Buy's website at that price now. Perhaps it will go on sale tomorrow?

    I have no doubt the terrible, horrible Ghost Rider 2 will be $5.99 by the end of the year, so I'll wait for that. (Yes, I saw it in the theater. Yes, I think it is terrible. Yes, I will get it when the price drops.)

    Otherwise, Superman vs. The Elite and I may squeeze in one or more of the Spider-Man films. I'm very tempted with the Star Wars set, too, for the record...

    Thanks for the Roundup. I'll be getting the Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows steelbook & all 3 Spider Man blu rays. Got $55 in Reward Zone certs to use (been waiting for a while because I don't usually get enough to use the $50 one I got after some big Home Theater purchases day before Thanksgiving). As far as I know ALL stores' copies of all of the Spider Man blu rays will contain $10 printable Movie Cash for the new Spider Man movie. Love picking them up @ $11.99 apiece & getting 3 tickets to boot & paying very little after cashing in the RZ certs.:D

    I'm thrilled about the Criterion Chaplin release, so that's the one for me. I can't decide if that will be my first BR purchase or not.
    Thanks Mike. (I only say thanks when I'm getting something, but it applies for every week!)

    I'll pick up Entourage when it goes on sale but other than that, it's a slow week.
    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    The Harold and Maude review can be found here.

    Thanks as always for the RoundUp. I, too, want the Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Blu, but I can wait for the price to come down.

    Thanks for the Roundup. For anyone interested in the ABC TV releases this week (Scandal/GCB/Missing), there are printable $10 off coupons at www.abctvondvdcoupon.com. I'll get Scandal, which will be $9.99 at Best Buy with the coupon.

    The second Sherlock Holmes will merit a rental when it eventually makes its way to Netflix. Otherwise, another week with no purchases for me.

    In addition to the new Sherlock Holmes, I'll probably be picking up Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2 since I currently only own 3 on BD. Here's hoping that the Spider-Man 2 BD includes the "2.1" cut!

    I've gotta ask. . .why???
    That was a pretty quick price drop on MI:4 at BB. Is that the BB-exclusive edition?

    Totally valid question. :) I saw it in the theater because I admittedly sort of enjoy the first one. It's not good, but I am a glutton for punishment most of the time. And I'll be picking it up down the road because I can not stand having a hole in the collection...

    It's listed in the RoundUp as $12.99! Is that a misprint, or are you waiting for it to go lower than that?

    I'd love if Amazon matched the BB price on Star Wars this week. I have an Amazon GC just itching to be used...

    Is the only difference between this version and the other one the inclusion of a DVD?
