Speak louder, Mr. Hart...fill the room with your intelligence!

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 definate 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. 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. I have a lovely wife and a five-year-old son I'd rather spend time with. 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 I do!

Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

* BE CAREFUL! Die Another Day is available in both Widescreen and Fullscreen versions...get the correct one.

* Non-OAR discs are left off the Roundup, whenever they've been identified in advance. Example: 3 Ninjas, Miracle Mile. This does NOT apply to markdowns, which are simply cut-and-paste from other lists.

* Best Buy has BONUS DISC MANIA! Bonus Discs will be attached to the packages for these 4 items (should all also be available at Suncoast, MediaPlay, Sam Goody, and perhaps in FutureShop up in Canada):
·Die Another Day - Special Edition ("Bond Girls Are Forever" DVD)
·The Fast and the Furious - Tricked-Out Edition (design your own car decals, screensavers, photo montage...is this a CD-ROM?)
·South Park - The Complete Second Season (original version of the pilot DVD)
·Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - The Complete Third Season (The U.S.S. Defiant featurette DVD)

* Circuit City has a DVD-ROM (with unspecified content) available when you buy Die Another Day. There's also a mousepad available with your Anamatrix purchase (either version, which you can combine with The Matrix for just $7.99 more).

* Target is giving away a free 2-liter bottle of 7-Up when you purchase Die Another Day. The "Low Price" there on The Fast and the Furious - Tricked-Out Edition seems like it will be $14.99. Animatrix & About Schmidt may also be that low, but take it with a grain of salt. It'll be close, though.

* Costco has this deal: "When you pre-order Die Another Day - Special Edition DVD before June 3, 2003, you will receive a James Bond DVD free. Choose from The World Is Not Enough DVD or Moonraker DVD. The free James Bond DVD will be included with your shipment of Die Another Day - Special Edition DVD." It does NOT look like this deal will be available in-stores once the street date hits.

* The Fast and the Furious - Tricked Out Edition includes a free ticket to 2 Fast, 2 Furious in select boxes.

* At Best Buy, when you buy T2 - Extreme Edition and either Stargate - Ultimate Edition or Total Recall - Special Edition you will get them at a "2 for $25" deal.

* Best Buy also has a deal: "Buy any new release and get up to 3 of these DVDs for 7.99 each (regular price is 9.99): [i]Rudy, Predator, Patton, A Few Good Men, Wall Street, Blue Streak, The Wedding Planner, The Boondock Saints, Legends of the Fall, Saving Silverman, Girl Interrupted, As Good As It Gets, A River Runs Through It, Commando, Can't Hardly Wait, Cruel Intentions, The Quick and The Dead, Sink The Bismarck, Quest for Life, or The Flight of the Phoenix".

* And Best Buy has ANOTHER deal: "Buy any new release and get up to 3 of these DVDs for 11.99 each (regular price is 14.99): Mr. Deeds, Big Daddy, The Comancheros, North To Alaska, The Undefeated, The 13th Warrior, Stand By Me, Office Space, Fight Club, Shanghai Noon, Pearl Harbor (non-Vista), The Sixth Sense (non-Vista), Tombstone (non-Vista), Father of the Bride, Father of the Bride Part II, Behind Enemy Lines, Remember the Titans, The Last of the Mohicans, Men of Honor, or Super Troopers".

* A couple of weeks ago, some catalog titles slipped underneath my radar screen and got missed in the Roundup. Released on 5/20 were The Comancheros, North To Alaska, Flight of the Phoenix (those three were mentioned in those last two Best Buy deals), The Long Hot Summer, & BRUBAKER (the last is a favorite of mine! Posted Image ). This probably happened the most because of the low-key way that retailers handle catalog titles...these didn't appear on anyone's "new this week!" list and certainly not in anyone's ads. Even Amazon didn't appear to list them until after the street date. Posted Image It's shabby treatment, but understandable I guess in that every title can't be promoted as a blockbuster and overnight-shipped in. At least they can stock them on their shelves a few weeks later? It seems not: for the last two, I spent a significant amount of time yesterday looking for these in all the retailers I go to in my immediate neighborhood (Best Buy, Circuit City, Costco, K-Mart, Wal-Mart, Suncoast, Target). No dice. I will venture farther than that to Borders and see if these are there, where the catalog pickings are usually very good. If not, I'll just head on-line to grab these...no sense in waiting for a jewel like Brubaker.

* And, on that note, I'll mention that both Best Buy and Circuit City's websites are very ambiguous about whether the Sneakers listing is for the old version or the new Collector's Edition. Both list only one release, at a very low price. Normally I'll believe this to be the old version, but Universal's releasing this CE at an extremely low price (SRP $14.98). So it's believable that $9.99 and $12.99 are the store prices for this new version. Wanna take bets as to how many weeks (or is it months?) it will be before they stock it, though? Posted Image

Wow! I don't even want to think how late you were up doing this list. Thanks as always, Dave!

For me, it'll be BB for DAD & Animatrix, then off to Target for BHD & (hopefully) About Schmidt.

Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

 

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

Holy crap, what a week! Thanks for all your work, Dave! (And pretty speedy this week as well!)

And is it just me, or are the titles Best Buy is offering for $7.99 (with new release purchase) more interesting than the ones offered for $11.99? Just my quirky personal taste, I guess.

question is the orginal pilot that good?(Southpark)
Well, it's about 2/3 the same as the episode that aired. In the alternate version, there's a subplot about hot burritos, but Cartman is forced to eat all of them by bullies (the fifth graders I think?). We also see Cartman with a full family!

Thanks, Dave. Yes, a big week... South Park and Animatrix for me, About Schmidt for my girlfriend, Black Hawk Down for my Mom, probably-

Christopher- take your Target ad (citing South Park as $30) to Best Buy... get the best price AND the bonus disc...

Thanks Dave, this is a great place to check for the best prices.

I'm picking up About Schmidt, Animatrix, and Super Mario Bros. I'll probably get South Park: Season 2 in a little while. I was going to get 3 Ninjas but now that it is pan and scan- no thanks.

Thanks Dave! Looks like Die Another Day and T2:EE Tuesday (Animatrix too if it is $15 as well, otherwise it will have to wait for the weekend or be relegated to rental status....I'm buying a new player at the end of the week). I'll definitely be snagging Sneakers:CE and Super Mario Brothers on a slower week (I hate being poor).

About Schmidt I really enjoyed in the theater, and once I get it my younger brother can rest assured he will be unpleasantly surprised when he logs on to his PC and sees the Kathy Bates screen capture I will place on his desktop. Too bad he's not familiar enough with the registry to know how to change it back once I've locked it.

David great roundup as usual. Just thought I would let you know about these Wal-Mart bundles this week:
Die Another Day: Comes free with a music sampler soundtrack, I think it has 4 or 5 songs, don't remember which exactly though.
Fast and the Furious: Comes free with a replica car from the movie, the car is hot wheel size, there's more then one packaged with the movie, I know for sure the green Eclipse is one of them.

I thought I saw an ad in a magazine that said if you buy both Black Hawk Down: Special Edition and Tears of the Sun (June 10th) at Circuit City, you get a five dollar rebate. I'll probably end up doing that, especially since Circuit City already has the Black Hawk Down for five dollars less than Best Buy.

I'll probably get the 2 for $25 T2 deal at Best Buy also.

I love when we get the roundup early. You ever think of skipping the latest markdowns from the various sights? Would that help lighten your load? Maybe you could just provide the links instead. I do not think the membership would mind seeing as how you do so much every week. We like to keep our people happy. If you are getting a little frustrated, maybe cutting back is the answer. We would never want to lose the roundup.

Thanks for the, Dave!

It looks like the release of Midnight Run didn't make your list.

Midnight Run is showing up as $14.99 from BestBuy, but does anyone know the Circuit City price on this one?
