    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 Twilight Time releases for sure, other than that I would love to pick up Chariots of Fire, but I can't justify it at that price. I will wait for that and Outland to come down in price.

    Ouch. I...couldn't...help...myself. I got a little excited after reading the reviews from RAH and Cameron. Now you and I get to wait and see how long it takes for the price to drop.

    My other Amazon pre-order this week is Quill: The Life of a Guide Dog. The trailer looks amazing and http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20120516/REVIEWS/120519985

    Didn't know about the Circuit City documentary but will check that out. Can I get it on DIVX? I've heard that's a much better value. :P

    My copies arrived yesterday, and look magnificent. Looking forward, of course, to the reviews.

    Also looking forward to receiving Coma, et al, which I pre-ordered at -- I think -- $13.99 each.

    Aaaawwwww! Ya know, there are days I think it would be very cool to have a dog around. But I out-think myself. I mean, I probably wouldn't be able to take care of another creature (and have it live). I'm terrible with plants and can be a wee bit selfish some days. But, really, Mike...you're making a very good case for a pet.

    Blade II and Frequency at some point when the price drops. I don't need them right now, but they are on my radar when I walk into WalMart and see a $7.98 sticker.

    If you liked the other American Pie movies, American Reunion is a fun look at the characters today. I don't know if I'll buy it this week (especially with that Barnes And Noble sale on Criterion discs) but I'll get it at some point.
    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    Thanks for the Roundup, Mike. I hadn't even realized American Reunion was being released this week. Got the first 3 on dvd & don't see an upgrade coming for those but I think I'll get the combo pack for Reunion. One day they'll have a great blu sale on the original trilogy & I might go for them then.

    Mine as well and looks like we have similar tastes in old(er) movies
    Frequency, Outland, Coma, and Altered States for me.

    Thanks for another WRU, Mike! Haven't been around much of late. Hope all is well w/ you and the family.

    I've been gradually rethinking my approach to purchases/collecting w/in the greater context of stewardship, time, etc. Tough decisions to make, especially w/ so many titles getting marked

    Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines was shot in Todd-AO. It will be interesting to see how good the transfer comes out on BR.

    Would be nice to know the prices will be the same next week -- fairly strong rumors and circumstantial evidence that the next (apparently now) "quarterly" Upgrade and Save promotion will start next Sunday.
