    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).







    The Specials

    --I was unable to secure a copy of the Best Buy ad for the coming week today. It might have had something to do with being on a trip to Yankee Stadium to see the Red Sox/Yankees play. I will update the thread Sunday with all the Best Buy deals. Below is listed some of what I was able to quickly glean off the internet. The rest of this week's Best Buy info is posted below in Post #9!

    Thanks guys! I'm really interested in the Vacation films, but will wait for a sale. I am really interested in Date Night as well, and Death at a funeral will be a rental or a pick up on sale.

    When I was in BB Friday night, they had a ton of BD's on sale for $9.99. I didn't take a good look, but I know Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves was in there, among a TON of others. The one price tag I looked at said the price was good until August 21.


    At any rate, I'm gonna use a gift card from this past Christmas to start rebuilding the collection. Not sure what I'm gonna pick up (not sure how much, either, since no one can tell me how much is left on the card), but it should be an extravaganza of BD awesomeness sometime this week. Thanks guys!

    So looking forward to Max Headroom. One of my favorite 80's series.

    I wonder if Max Headroom is going to be one of those series where the manufacturer underestimates demand? It seems ripe for such a scenario.

    Darn. My local Target doesn't carry the film Minority Report on BluRay. Indeed, of all those Tom Cruise films they're promoting, I only saw War of the Worlds. Ended up getting Zombieland on Blue at Ultimate Electronics ($12).

    Ultimate Electronics in Boulder CO had 2-for-$17 BluRays:

    Fast & Furious 1, 2, and 3,

    BSG: The Plan,

    Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels,

    King Kong (Peter Jackson version),

    Pitch Black (but NOT the sequel, sadly...)

    and one or two others. Very small selection in this 2-for-$17 sale.


    On the other side of the display, they had a few BluRays for $12 or $12.99:

    Zombieland

    one of those Tom Hanks and the Vatican movies

    and one or two others. Very small selection.


    All of the other BluRay sales that they'd been having for months now -- the various $7.99 and $8.99 and similar BluRay sales on items like Total Recall are gone. The floorspace has been reshaped for returning students, highlighting video games more than movies.

    That would be the ultimate justice for fans like me! The last time time the show went on cable (on TechTV), there was resounding indifference.


    My set came in the mail yesterday and I'm positively giddy! Seeing the people who created the show interviewed is really unique - I never had faces to put to those names.

    I certainly hope so. I have ordered from Amazon. Waiting for it to ship. Can't wait to introduce this to my 17 year old son.
