    (CC) after a title: a new Criterion Collection release.

    (DF) after a title: a new M-G-M Double Feature release.

    The Disclaimer
    Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed advertisements, the Sunday of the week of release (so as to catch any week-of-release sale prices). All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price. If a price is marked "$_N/A_" in the grid, it means that this title is not shown as available on that chain's website or perhaps in their ads...but it COULD still be in-stores!

    $_"LP" means the advertisement says "Low Price", and $_"HP" means the advertisement says "Hot Price". Use of either of these in the Roundup grid indicates that 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 only include the titles I feel like including (or the ones Dave tells me he's looking for ;o)). In fact, the titles are pretty much the ones I'm personally interested in, with few exceptions. I don't get paid for this, and I don't have time to devote to doing 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...like Dave & I do!

    Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii. Also note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the standard Roundup: they set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is not a way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. When it comes to Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices mentioned at all, just remember that "Your Mileage May Vary".


    The Specials

    **BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! The Longest YardAND The Outsiders are available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one! Also, it looks as though The Adventures of SharkBoy & LavaGirl in 3-D is being released in both 3-D/2-D AND 2-D-only versions…although the price point looks the same. And, Inside Deep Throat is being released in both R & NR versions…get the one that’s right for you.

    --For anyone who did NOT yet get their copy of Lost: Season 1, Best Buy is offering a deal in which you buy Lost: Season 1 and Desperate Housewives: Season 1 and get $10 off instantly. Must be purchased on same receipt.

    --Best Buy is also giving out FREE EXCLUSIVE 2006 Desperate Housewives Calendars with the purchase of DH: Season 1 at their stores.

    --Don’t forget, if you purchased Lost: Season 1 and got Best Buy’s exclusive bonus disc, there is a coupon for $10 off Desperate Housewives: Season 1.

    --Some Best Buy RewardZone specials this week:

    *RZ Member Price for Desperate Housewives: Season 1 - $34.99
    *RZ Member Price for MallRats (10th Anniv. Ed.) - $14.99

    The Appeal

    Any visitor to the Weekly RoundUp should be sure to check out the new Main Portal Page of the Home Theater Forum….FOR TWO VERY GOOD REASONS!

    First: Parker & Ron have re-formatted the Portal Page to include exclusive HT industry news you won’t find in any place on the HTF! Second: You will help support the Home Theater Forum and keep it up and running.

    Operating the HTF is not free for Parker and Ron. That is why there is advertising throughout the forum and there has been the occasional membership fund drive. THIS IS AN EASY WAY FOR YOU TO HELP…AND IT’S FREE OF CHARGE…AND INFORMATIVE, TOO! [​IMG]

    If you simply link to the Portal Page when you start your visits to the HTF, that act alone wILL bring revenue to the forum. While it would also be nice if you wanted to click on some of the advertisers’ links and check out their deals and sales (that form of “window shopping” would bring even more revenue to the forum), the simple act of landing on the Portal Page registers a “hit” or “impression” that creates revenue for the HTF.

    So, if you’ve been “sneaking in” to the HTF through links to your favorite thread or forum, please take an extra second of your time and land first on the HTF Portal Page. You’ll see the new Industry News sections AND help out financially. THANKS!

    For moi:

    Mallrats
    Swamp Thing (Unlisted, BTW)
    Don't Be a Menace..
    Scary Movie 3.5

    Possibly "The Longest Yard" after seeing it the other day (thanks to my new side job [​IMG] )

    BTW, "Sin City" looks to be going PVM as of this Tuesday at Hollywood Video, as part of the 3/$25 deal, so if you're still needing it as a placeholder for December's release, don't bother patronizing BB.

    As always, thanks Mike and Patrick. A few things for me this week:
    Mallrats 10th AE
    Outsiders
    Penn & Teller’s Magic Mystery Tour

    I MAY pick up Desperate Housewives, but it would be a blind buy. I'm currently in the process of obtaining the first couple episodes (if you catch my drift [​IMG]) so I'll try to watch those over the next couple days to give me an idea of whether or not I want to take the plunge.

    Anyone know anything about the Penn & Teller release? I'm a sucker for them, so I'll probably be buying it blind anyways, but curious about it. Otherwise, BSG and Pretender this week.

    Thanks Mike and Patrick! Looks like Desperate Housewives (my wife's favorite show), although I am still trying to sort out the best deal. I will probably go with the BB RZ $34.99 price plus the $10 off Lost coupon. But, the BB version doesn't come with the bonus disc... drat! I am eyeing 2 or 3 of the Midnite Movies double-features for me.
