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! The Hours and Kangaroo Jack are both 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: Lost In La Mancha. This does NOT apply to markdowns, which are simply cut-and-paste from other lists.
* For those of you interested in The Man Show: Be aware that this is EXACTLY the same as the television presentation. Nothing uncensored here, not even the cover (when you slide off the bellyband it reveals crossed arms over the goodies).
* Know anyone who still needs a copy of The Matrix on DVD? It and Training Day are both on sale for $9.99 this week at Circuit City. "Special In-store price only. Limit 3 per customer."
