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

    Individual Titles included in Collections listed above:

    Beethoven Pooch Pack: Beethoven, Beethoven’s 2nd, Beethoven’s 3rd, Beethoven’s 4th, Beethoven’s 5th.

    Blind Dead Collection: Tombs of the Blind Dead, The Ghost Galleon, Return of the Evil Dead, Night of the Seagulls, Amando De Ossorio-Director.
    Here’s a bonus picture of the Blind Dead Collection, so that you can see the packaging:
    [​IMG]

    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.


    The Specials

    **BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! Carlito’s Way: Rise to PowerAND Robots are available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one! And, American Pie 3 Movie Pie Pack AND Lords of Dogtownare being released in both R & NR versions…get the one that’s right for you.

    --There’s a huge price discrepancy in this week’s listing for the Roger Moore, Richard Burton, Richard Harris movie Wild Geese (30th Anniversary Edition). I wouldn’t be surprised if someone’s price is in error.

    --Best Buy is offering $10 off INSTANTLY with the purchase of Family Guy presents Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story AND either Family Guy Volume 1 or 2. Must be purchased on same receipt.

    --Best Buy is also doing a 2 for $30 deal on Evil Dead 2 ($26.99) AND Evil Dead ($11.99). $27 + $12 = $39. $39 - $30 = $9 savings.

    --Best Buy is offering an EXCLUSIVE booklet on its copies of The Complete Monty Python’s Flying Circus 16-Ton Mega Set. On-pack booklet includes a brief history of Monty Python, a sketch-by-sketch guide to all 16 DVDs and more.

    --Circuit City is offering TWO FREE Robots TOYS with its copies of Robots. In-store only. While supplies last. Minimum 48 per store. Two toy-figures per package. One package per customer.

    -- Circuit City is offering a FREE EXCLUSIVE DISC with the purchase of Family Guy Presents Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story featuring Fox’s hottest TV shows including an episode of American Dad, Arrested Development, SSN2, and Stacked starring Pamela Anderson with purchase. In-store only. While supplies last. Minimum 10 per store.

    --Circuit City is also offering a FREE CD with its copies of The Lords of Dogtown. FREE Tooth and Nail/Solid State 19-track CD Sampler featuring Underoath & Amberlin.

    --Target has an EXCLUSIVE FREE bonus disc with its copies of Robots. With Ten Great Robots Games. Bots of Fun! Items are packaged together. Quantity limited. No rainchecks.

    --Also at Target, you can get a FREE $5 Target GiftCard with the purchase of Gilmore Girls: Season 4. GiftCard automatically given at register. No rainchecks.

    --In a flyer in my local paper, Coconuts (FYE/TransWorld) is offering a FREE EXCLUSIVE Family Guy BOOK with the purchase of Family Guy Presents Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story (Low Price). 32 Pages! While supplies last.

    --And, since there has been a lot of interest in pricing for From the Earth to the Moon, I will point out that in that same flyer Coconuts is advertising FTETTM for $64.99 plus a $15 mail-in rebate…bringing the final price down to $$49.99!!! They also are offering $20 rebates on Lost: Season 1 and Desperate Housewives: Season 1 …bringing their final prices down to $$24.99 each!!!

    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!

    Would anyone know, by chance, if the "Robots" bonus disc a DVD or CD-ROM? Looks like that's my only purchase this week.

    I rented "Carlito's Way: RTP" from work, and may re-evaluate "Henry" for purchase.

    Cory: The ad doesn't say (which makes me think its a CD-ROM) so I can't be sure. cc.com doesn't seem to make any reference of it.

    Thanks as usual.

    A busy week.

    Are You Being Served? Christmas
    Hogan's Heroes
    Robots (for my son)
    Star Trek Enterprise
    We're No Angels (God I've waited a long time for that one)

    It's a shame that Scrooge got cancelled, and I'm toying with picking up Parent Trap 2.

    I knew the new The Vicar of Dibley Specials DVD wouldn't make the ads, so I'm glad I ordered it. It's the only thing on my list this week.

    On a more serious note, does anyone know how the new Parent Trap 1 & 2 compares to the Parent Trap: Valut Disney Collection? I'm really just interested in the first film but wouldn't mind having both if the picture/sound were the same as the previous release.

    Wonder what's up with that? $9.59? $19.99? That's a big difference for a catalog title price that low.
