And I come back to you now -- at the turn of the tide. (quote from Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers)

[c]Posted Image[/c]

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.

Thanks, Dave.

I'll definitely be getting Simpsons 3, and Stitch (based on the HTF review).

I'll be holding out on Animal House until I see some reviews that compare the picture quality with the current release. Unless it's improved, I see no reason to rebuy this.

And I will painfully not buy Wiseguy. Since they've ruined the ending of arc 1 by not paying for the rights to one fricking song, I will stand by my principles as much as it hurts. First MTM, now this. Posted Image

Thanks a bunch Dave! I picked up two of the 24 discs today in the store and on the pack of the package there is a mail in rebate for $10 off a purchase of both 24: S1 and S2 or $5 off if you buy only 24: S1 or 24: S2. (The sets CAN be purchased separately and still qualify for the $10 rebate as long as they were bought between 8/24/2003 (today) and 2/24/2004).

Stopped by Best Buy today. Supposedly the 24: S2 preview DVDs have a street date of Tuesday, Aug. 26. They wouldn't give me one. Posted Image Doubt I'll be able to make it in there after work Tuesday before they run out.

Probably will get Stitch: The Movie and LOTR: TTT at Best Buy and have them price match to CC, though.

Thanks,

Dave C.

Like Futurama from a few weeks ago, the Simpson season three will be delayed for me for some time. Other then that it a slow week. Because even so I like Two Towers, I am not buying a dvd that will ended up being sold off in two months.
I need a new signature.

At the Best Buy near me they had them just laid out on a table next to some TV DVD sets, with plenty of copies to go around-I'm sure you'll get one.

I'm picking up TTT and Simpsons Season 3. I'll pick up Futurama Season 1 at $10 off with it at Best Buy, since I've been thinking about getting it anyway. Glad I waited a little longer.

My Best Buy insert said something about a Two Towers Midnight Opening and sweepstakes. Anyone know where the list of stores doing that can be found?

I might get Simpsons: Season 3. But other than that, I'm getting nothing. I told my brother to hit me if I think about getting it, since I don't want to fall for the LOTR hype again and be disappointed. I'll just rent it and decide on it later on.
